Sometimes when a unit is over-staffed, nurses that are “extra” either get to stay home, or they have to float to another unit to help out there. At a hospital I used to work at, ICU RN’s were allowed to float everywhere but the maternity/OB ward.
- I am Gina. I have been a nurse for 15 years, first in med/surg, then CVICU, inpatient dialysis, CCU and now hospice. This blog is about my experiences as a nurse, and the experiences of others in the healthcare system - patients, nurses, doctors, paramedics. We all have stories!
