Patients are left in pain
In the hospital where I work only two of the four surgical pods have RNs.
If a post-op needs an epidural to control pain then they have to be placed into a specific room because only an RN can administer it. So I have had epidurals removed in recovery because there was no RN.
Patients are having epidurals taken out and are being left in pain because there aren’t enough RNs.
