I have violated a hospital policy, not in patient care or a hippa violation, but I've made a mistake of hooking up with a coworker in the parking lot after work. This ended up to the manager, and we had a meeting with HR, and now... Read More

    That cracked me up Adam!

    I am sorry though that it is true. You made a bad decision. You have learned your lesson I am sure. It will make it harder to get another job, but you will just have to emphasize what you learned from it and how it has made you a better decision maker.

    Not the end of the world.

    We have all made mistakes at some point. If we are lucky we didn't get caught and then matured enough to alter our behavior.

    Much luck to you in the future. You will be fine.

    You are right of course about that, but I also think that your point was unnecessary. The lack of capitalizing I's shows complete laziness.
    Fair enough. Maybe I should refrain from posting immediately after coming off a terrible shift!

    Nearly anything I could possibly say about this has already been said already in some way, shape or form.

    You're human. We humans make mistakes. I won't pass judgment on what you did.

    So all I shall say is:

    1. There is a possibility that HR may tell future employers why you were fired/resigned when they go to verify your employment...and they can legally do as it DID happen. Neverminding that word may spread unofficially via the grapevine, as nursing is a much smaller world than you think.

    So IMO be prepared to address this matter on future job applications. It may come up, it may not...just be prepared. Also, find a sympathetic coworker to be your reference.

    2. Best of luck in your future endeavors, whatever/wherever they may be.

    and most importantly:

    3. Learn from this.

    Good day:

    My recommenation would be to ask for a meeting with HR and fall on the proverbial sword.

    Tell them you understand you made an extremely poor judgement choice which reflected poorly on the organization. Share how sorry you are for this decision; and what steps you are willing to take to make sure it will not happen again.

    Let them know how much you like the organization and your job (presuming you do); and that if they are willing to work with you through this lack of poor judgement on your part, you will show them your loyalty and dedication over time in thanks for their mercy and grace.

    It is possibly they may be open to putting you on probation or a form there of; and give you a second chance. If that happens, do be sure to give it your all to show they were not mistaken in giving you that second chance.

    Thank you.

    Word got to HR cause her husband found out and wanted the RT fired. The RT didn't get fired but could no longer work in our ICU, which is how we all found out.
    Why is it even the RT's fault? It takes two to tango right?

    I'm always amazed how men, in particular, feel the need to address this issue with the other guy. In this case, get the guy fired.

    Yes, in relationships people can get hurt and if addressing it diplomatically does not resolve the issue, then why stay? In this case, given a male there are so many females out there. Last I check in the US, women outnumber men. Sheesh! Relax people.

    I had an ex turn questioning my love for her because I didn't seem to care whether she moved on. The fact is, I cared about her and her unfounded jealousy led her to 'listen' to some other dude. I wished her well and we remained friends in fact. I will be invested in a relationship and will be quick to move on just the same after several attempts at solving a problem. Now for marriage, one needs more resilience! lol

    NOTE: Some posts have been edited and/or deleted.

    Many replies have been vulgar, tasteless, and unprofessional.

    Closing this thread as nothing else can really be said regarding the OP's dilemma.
