newbie doobie do
I am what you call a corner cutter. If I think its stupid I might not do it. That means I don't do half the shit we are supposed to do. Bada boom...The stuff I think is stupid is all the ridiculous documentation we have to do. For example a whole pile of shit about whether you have enough money for food, might off yourself or off someone else, etc. We are suppose to ask every person who comes in these questions, even if you are there for a finger laceration.
Another thing: everybody is supposed to have a set of vitals before they leave. Even someone who is there for a damn toothache who had NOTHING done. Stupid. There are times I have not done the medication reconciliation on people who are discharged. OH MY GOD, you didn't do that?!!!! Twenty lashes with a tourniquet.
So you see as a preceptor, I would have be a good nurse, dot all my i's and cross all my t's and tell the preceptee that they must do all of these things or else the world will come to an end. I couldn't do that with a straight face.
