They are eliminating the nurse aid positions, changing the LPN role to assist the RN who will be on primary care for up to 5 patients. Got a lot of people upset.

Who's upset? It sure isn't the RN's. The nurse aids can't do anything but bathe pts. They aren't allowed to chart, help pass Meds, draw labs, ect..... I can give a pt a bath myself.

Who's upset? Not the RN's. The aides can't do anything. They aren't allowed to chart, pass Meds, stick labs, ect..... The only thing they can do is give baths. I can give a bath myself.

Are these changes being implemented in every department or just on the floors? What about the OR?

No need to get your panties in a wad over new policies. They preach they're going to discipline if policy is not followed, but they never do. How are they going to enforce the new policies if the managers, charge RN, techs, supervisors & even directors are not following the policies?

Well..in theory the plan will work..but in reality we all know there sre going to ne people who think they are special and rules don't apply to them. These are the people who make it difficult for everyone else. They sit around trying to "look" busy while everyone else is busting ass to get the work done....and in the end everyone gets their butts chewed over things they don' t even know about...things their lazy co- workers should have done and didn' t. Just makes me mad that it is allowed to happen.

I work in a department where my clinical manager sits on her bottom all day surfing the Internet. She can not even do the testing the department requires. Why can't the hospital see this and clean it out. Very discouraging and disappointing.

The higher ups do not want to see what is wrong...if they actually know then they would have to do something about it. And that would mean admitting they are wrong...that St Marys is not a place like no other!

You hit the nail right on the head, so true. Also, it would mean someone would actually have to do their job & work.
