I have a real problem with ancillary staff and am at my wits end. I need help. - page 6

I hesitate to submit this issue, as I know that most Techs, Aides, and HUCS are dedicated and professional, and that I could NOT do my job without these coworkers. Therein lies the problem. On the... Read More

    Quote from Libby1987
    I would walk up to her, look her in the eye softly but directly and ask, "Are you busy?" Yes. "When will you not be busy and able to assist with patient care?" I would expect nothing less than a reasonable response.

    If not received next step would be directly asking manager if she was aware and would she be addressing.

    If never, or rather not immediately, then next step would be find another employer and submit my resignation with much clarity. In other words, I know my value and they.couldn't.keep.me.

    Nobody holds me hostage. That's where anger, resentment and hopelessness live.
    So you'd be willing to cut and run. You would rather give up a job you love except for these villains and their villainy, give up your seniority, give up all of the good things about the job, such as a pension, ease of accommodation for personal issues, short commute, preferred shift and schedule. NOt to mention that the new job might be riddled with its own problems and turn out to be even worse.

    The OP says that she has already gone to the Manager and was basically kicked in the teeth and made to believe that the Manager wasn't going to do anything to correct this insane situation.

    Do I come across as a cut and run type?

    You all as a unit need to have a committed front of zero tolerance with these people. Raise hell with your managers until something is done.

    Unless I misread what you wrote, yes. You are saying people should try once or twice, directly and then to the boss when the direct approach fails. Then, when the Manager fails to correct the trouble, you would leave.

    Did I misunderstand?

    Short of sudden death or disability (how sweet it would be for these wenches, the boss, and all of their ilk to learn what it's like being on the receiving end of their type of behavior), or the Rapture, or some other miraculous change - which is not impossible, for all things are possible with God, this is what it takes for change. Those who are sick and tired of being sick and tired have to band together and make it happen, scary though it is.

    Banding together is a fabulous idea but easier said than done. That is because all the coworkers who hate the situation as much as you do will never do anything about it. Even when there's safety in numbers, they'll cower in the background when you go out on a limb by yourself. They'll approach you privately to tell you how glad they are that you spoke up, but they'll never publicly back you.

    That is how a bad situation never gets any better. At some point, you may just get too disgusted and leave.

    That's when you lasso them and drag them to the boss' office. I know. I once fell for being the spokesman while everyone else, who had sworn to high heaven that they were 100% with me, wouldn't say a word, most wouldn't even go with me to the boss. Stupid me. Still, + change was effected because I did speak up.

    I was wondering about the same thing as I was reading OP's post and I've got my answer thanks to you

    Have you tried to write them up? Even if your unit manager is close to them, if there are plenty of compalins against them, I assume someone above your unit manager would want to learn more about the situation?

    How about other nurses? If a good number of nurses suffer from those HUCs, you guys can bring up the issue during staff meetings?
