One of the truly eye-opening parts of travel nursing is seeing how differently hospitals around the country are run. A friend and fellow travel RN has just started an assignment at a New England-area hospital. She was shocked to discover that although each lovely private patient room in her new facility has a 42" flatscreen TV, the nurses still administer and document meds using a paper MAR system. "Sometimes I think, 'How can all these hospitals be in the same country and be so different?'" she remarked to me.
