- Jul 31, '12 by WildcatFanRNQuote from rnsuperstari actually had a dr call me at home to wake me up like i had him. the joke was on him because it took me an hour to get home so when he called i had just walked in. i talked to him about it when i got back to work and informed him, "nope you didn't wake me up as i had just walked in the door". he was actually surprised about that. now i know i could have gotten him in trouble for doing that as well as the person who gave my number to him.thank you for the kind words. reading your posts have cheered me up a bit.
here is a little update. my boss called me this morning about scheduling issues.
i mentioned this whole incident....and she totally supported me. she told me that the doctor is going to be written up and it will be part of his annual review. btw, i forgot to mention that while i was being chewed out, dr jerk told me that he was going to find out my phone number and call me in the middle of the night so that i know how it feels. my manger told me that this is a threat, and if he actually did it (which he didn't) the hospital would take actions against him for harrassment.
she told me that he thinks he is better than god....and should have never talked to me like that. we talked about how i could improve, and how to improve/prevent this situation from happeneing again.
thank you for the support.....i feel a lot better now, and i think i might be able to make it thru my shift without breaking down.
who says you don't learn anything new?

I've had many over the years.
I have mis read handwriting.
I watched another nurse do sort of all the five rights with a patient that was not her own and give that patient a shot of steroids...only to find out to our surprise that the patient she gave the med to was demented and verified everything with a yes...and was the wrong lady...
I swabbed someone's nose for the flu with the wrong swab...had to go and eat humble pie and get another swab. (and I did THAT with 10 yrs experience, I sure was tired that day, and it was not flu season but I did it.)
I've made multiple MD's angry for all sorts of reasons. Some legitimate, some not.
Hang in there, it gets easier, and hey you caught it! I once picked up a patient only to discover for 3 days the nurse had been giving the wrong insulin. Whoooeeeee, that was not a pleasant incident to deal with. The patient had done well, but.....
