- 1Oct 16, '11 by gonzo1I have given report to all of the above nurses. What a nightmare. My favorite is the one who says I know it all,and I don't need report.
I protect myself by charting report given to Joe Blow and care handed off, then I put a little blurb about anything I think is really important. For example. I might chart oncoming nurse notified that pt is a fall risk, still needs to recieve Vancomycin and have CBC redrawn.
That way if this stuff is not done no one can say I didn't give report on it.

The best was recently when I was giving report and she walked away, and the sassy LOL yelled out "Girl, oh no she didn't just walk away. Get back in here little girl, you gonna take care of me you gonna hear about me!" Priceless.

The way I respond is this....."I will give you my full report, and then, you may ask questions....I am very exhausted, and if you will listen through, you may hear the answers to your questions....." Period. Then go on to your report. She is being a bully. Stand your ground. I have been known to say "I don't respond well to this kind of interaction..."......"what kind of interaction?"......"whatever it is that you are putting out right now, I can't respond in kind"......that usually leaves them dumbfounded. I get it. I have been on both ends.....blessings, and jeez....nurses can be the meanest people on earth......oxox
