SANFORD, Fla. — A Sanford nurse is doing her part to solve a nationwide nursing shortage.
She’s providing new nurses with unique resources to make onboarding and shifts a lot easier.
Channel 9 spoke with nurse Meg Harrell about how it works and why it’s critical.
“As soon as I was training new nurses, I saw the gap,” Harrell said. “I was seeing things getting missed by new grads who were just very overwhelmed. They didn’t draw the lab on time, they didn’t give them medication on time, it can have adverse effects or delay other care from happening.”
She said there are 100,000 nurses leaving the profession every year, either doing something different or retiring.
So, while working at AdventHealth, she got to work putting new nurses on the fast track.
The simple digital worksheets help with overall patient care, making things like shift changes a breeze, with easy to fill out report sheets.
