Struggling in nursing school?

NRSNG can help skyrocket your grades 🚀

  • Most facilities have policies and procedures to properly secure valuables
  • Ideally, valuables are given to family/friends to be taken home and secured
  • If this is not possible, there should be a secured and locked location within the facility to keep valuables
  • Paperwork must be completed, appropriate documentation maintained
  • Patients may experience a sudden trauma (MVA) and not have family or friends at the bedside to take valuables home
  • Know who you should contact if you identify any items that compromise safety (for example, weapons)
