I worked in a drug rehab, was caring and compasionate to the residents and was calming thru detox. Patients male and female would ask for me and even call for me to tell me they were doing well in recovery. They would say that I was the only nurse who truly cared about them, and that it showed. :angel2:
My d.o.n. accused me of being flirtatious. I assured her that I did not have that intention of flirting with drug addicts and alcoholics, but I treat every one with compassion and respect.
Somehow I was set up and she told me that a male client had my phone number in his file. So I would have to leave. For 1 I did not give out my number, 2 it was unlisted anyway, 3 the clients don't access their own charts ANYWAY!!!
To make a long story short, I am over a thousand miles from that job, as my husbands job was transferred to another state. I apply for a job, listed that job as experience, a year past. I found out that potential jobs call that D.O.N. and she tells them that she would not rehire me!! :angryfire
Thus representing me in a very negative way, although I had never had a med error nor any disciplinary actions in 10 years of nursing, including at that job :angel2:
Someone please give me some feedback to deal with this great anger and disappointment of cruilty!
