OK, forgive me all, but I am going to give you the down and dirty way to nip this in the bud.
You have to TAKE the b*tch DOWN!!!!
Next time she dares
to question your activities or judgement, you need to stop what ever you are doing (within reason of course!) go up to her chair, stand in her personal space, looking down your nose at her and lay her out!
"Excuse me, but I believe that you would be questioning my professional
judgement. Can you tell me when
did you gradaute nursing school
, because I must have missed it. Do not EVER question MY judgement again, or I will write you up so severely, you will wish you had never worked here!"
Now, those of you who know me, know I am usually very diplomatic, but this B*TCH is making people afraid to ask her to do her
job?? That is BS!!! NO WAY should she get away with it. You can try to talk with a controlling person every which way, but it will be so draining to try to "reason" with them, I just advise you skip all the BS, publically humiliate her and get it over with. If you get called on the carpet for it, admit it, tell your boss why, and ask your colleagues to back you up. If your boss doesn't take your side, you will know who's the boss, and unless you want that nasty US to run your life every day you work, you will know what you have to do. Yelling at me in front of pt's, by a US???!!! THat would never float in my book. This chick needs to be put in her place now! Before the monster grows out of control.
