I'm a new nurse, been on the job for a little over two months now. I'm having an issue with one of the techs I work with. She is NOT doing her job. Most recent incident ; she was supposed to get vital signs on our more critical pt's at a certain time.. and did not get them by one hour and 45 minutes past that time. One of the other nurses had to go in and get them herself... and YES, we were busy at the time. This tech also has a horrible attitude and work ethic. Being a new nurse, I've bit my tongue.. but am not going to for long. Would love advice on how other nurses would deal with this issue.
p.s. I've been a tech for nearly 20 years myself... so I DO know how hard it is on that end as well.
