AFter working in a rehab facility for a few years now I realize how much slack that other personnel give SNF nurses feeling that they are dumb or have a lack of education. I've worked in an ICU setting and post acute care rehab and realize that while in the hospital setting you have equipment at your fingertips like monitors and physicians, I've learned so much at a SNF that I couldn't have ever learned at a hospital. I've learned how to assess without equipment or rely on equpment to tell me something was wrong with my patient. I can tell if a patient is in a-fib or a-flutter and the ratio without an EKG monitor. These are things that are invaluable.
