No rehire !!!!!!!!!! - page 9

Can I ask everyone which hospitals in Dallas have the practice of labelling their employees as No rehire? If there is no offence on the part of the employee and they served their notice period but... Read More

    This does not happen everywhere and it happens because we let them happen.
    Yes, this happens everywhere, in every career, in every job arena. This is not some evil plot of healthcare management against nurses. It is not unethical, immoral or even weird. If you disappoint your employer and you are separated from them by termination or resignation they have every right to say they don't want to hire you back.

    Thanks for pointing the quote button out. It becomes evil when they start misusing this power. They start deeming nurses not eligible just because they had hurt their ego. All right, even if they do that but don't blacklist them so that they cannot find a job anywhere else.

    Adding to this post, I have worked in two different states and there has to be something very extreme for a nurse to be blacklisted.

    Yorker, they don't publish these things!! The point isn't to prevent people from finding ANY other job. The reason they have them is so that, as an organization, they can prevent re-hiring someone that they didn't feel worked out for them. It has nothing to do with ego. It is their right. Just as it is your right to walk away from a job that doesn't work for you. How would you feel if you were told that you weren't allowed to leave an employer until they said you could? Pretty sure you wouldn't be too happy. Ask people who have contractual obligations they couldn't get out of.

    This post is very confusing as the story keeps changing throughout. Just because you "heard" a person was listed a do not hire over an interview does not mean it to be true. Don't listen to rumors. Get the facts.

    Have you or have you not been listed as a do not rehire? I read you have, it's a hypothetical situation, you heard a rumor from some girl, or you really don't know. I would assume that if you left the job early on you would be listed that way.

    Your unsafe working conditions? Do you know how many times I go into work and have an unstable patient paired with another? Yes, it's busy. Yes, you have to prioritize, but it's not like you had two unstables circling the drain. Yes, climbers are a pain to have, but there are interventions you can take to do your best to keep them in bed. You can't keep all in though. And if your other patient is that unstable that you are unable to leave the room, your other teammates or charge can come and back you up with the climber. Just saying that's unsafe and throwing your hands up in the air and quitting is not the answer to me. There are lots of situations that I can see are "unsafe". Your example doesn't qualify.

    You are so all over the place in this post it's hard to believe at all what you are posting. It seems to me you quit, got deemed a no rehire, and think it's unfair. You gotta suck it up and find a new job. When asked about your previous employment, be upfront and say you didn't feel it was a good fit. Simple.
    Its very easy to say that there are interventions to keep the pt. safe then why didn't u use it, sounds like someone from management. To throw more light , there was only one more staff nurse with me who had two vented pts completely on two different corners. Charge nurse was helping one of her pts. No tech. Called the supervisor but she was busy on the floor. There was no one ready to come to work, couldn't get help from techs on the other floor.

    Wuzzie,
    I agree don't rehire the nurse/ employee back again, that's fine. But why do they have to blacklist the nurses so that they cannot find a job anywhere else. Don't u think BON should be the mothership to find out if there is any disciplinary action against the nurse???

    I'm not sure where you're getting your information from but there is no general blacklist for all prospective hiring managers to see. Again the purpose isn't to prevent a nurse from getting a job elsewhere it's to prevent a company accidentally re-hiring a problematic employee. The BON only cares about practice issues. They couldn't give a flying fig that someone is chronically tardy or calls off sick too often but you can be sure a company's HR department does. I'm not sure where your conspiracy theory is coming from. I was marked a "do not rehire" for really weak reasons yet I got a new job three days later even after they called my previous employer. Lots of people have. I'm sorry but you are really blowing this out of proportion and getting worked up over it. What you imagine happening just isn't.

    I wish that was the case that I was blowing this out of proportion but unfortunately this is true that there is a list like this and this has been told by a recruiter.

    Within an organization yes there will be this list. Otherwise how else will they know not to re-hire someone? But there is NO general list published for everyone to see. It doesn't exist.

    Here's a thought. Instead of being pissed off about this imaginary list why don't you just strive to not do something to get you on said "list".

    How are you so sure that a list like this does not exist?????
    This is not a published list that everyone can just come and see , come on now.
    Thanks for the thought of the day.

    Because if it did thousands upon thousands of nurses ( including myself) would be unable to find jobs.

    Was the last line of your post intended to be snotty?

    You think the HR depts of each hospital print a list of do not hire people and share it amongst each other? I work in a major city with 5 different hospital systems at least. With the way nurses around here hop from hospital to hospital, I can guarantee that does not exist. That would take a lot of time and effort.

    I agree with PP, this is an imagined situation. Just focus on getting yourself a new job. Get your resume together and work on interview skills.

    Wuzzie , I don't think you are getting the concept right. Yes, it s the company's right to decide to give the job to a particular candidate and no one owes a job. What I am trying to say is that , listing someone as "not eligible for rehire " without any concrete evidence gives the employer an upper hand and that gets misused .
    And, at the end of the day it is what it is, we can whinge and moan about how unfair it may or may not be, but the employer can use it any way they please

    Personally, I think it's petty and short sighted of the hospital. If she provided appropriate notice and there were no disciplinary issues then why is she no re hireable? Spending money to train staff is a calculated risk anytime. What happens in a few years she is highly trained and highly skilled.. they just lost an opportunity for a first class nurse. Who knows why she left, but unless there was something that said she had to stay 6 months she did nothing wrong.

No rehire !!!!!!!!!!
