How do I deal with the snail preceptee?


Observe and make suggestions

●     Is your preceptee spending 45 minutes doing morning assessments? Observe him while he’s performing morning assessments and make suggestions on ways to speed up the process while still being thorough. Are there orders that were left from night shift that weren’t carried out? Prioritize them and perhaps carry out the one most important order first, then do the others the next time you come into the room.
