    One of our LPN's got fired today. She had worked there 19 years but the problem was that someone else wants her hours. That person is willing to make nice with our don. Deb was not that type of person. She did her job, did it well but didn't care to be glued to the don's backside. :angryfire She was fired because of someone willing to lie that she had her grandson at work all day Saturday. I know she didn't cuz I worked the same shift. Unfortunately they won't listen to those of us that were there. I think that if someone is doing something wrong they should know it at the time it is going on. By the way she had another job by the end of the day.

    It appears you are all talking about the same place here. Give me a hint at least as far as city or state. I want to remember NOT to go there. :angryfire

    The last two responses were actually talking about another thread, not this one. As for the manager from the OP, I have to hang onto the belief that what goes around, comes around. If I was the manager of that unit, with as many needs as she does, I would be unable to sleep at night wondering how my department is going to take care of all the patients that are coming in. I'm sure that if the higher up admins ever get a look at her payroll, with an enormous amount of people on OT and getting incentive pay on top of it, they are going to go through the roof. Maybe if she had any type of personality that could deal with people, she wouldn't be losing good nurses right and left. Like I said, what goes around, comes around and one of these days it will catch up to her. Sorry, just venting and glad to be out of that department and away from that poor excuse for a manager.

    I like your thinking. Sounds like it's time for you to step up into supervision and management if you want to. You could make a difference.

    I have more than enough to say at work , Im always talking to my patients and doing what needs to be done. I spend little to very little time in discourse with my coworkers. Either they are too young, or I dont like them, or they just dont play golf, Gives me plenty of time to get my work done,

    i think lady jezebel said it best, i couldn't have said it any better myself.

    hang in there, and be yourself. patient care is whats important, and document, document, document!!
