A friend looking for another position within her hospital was telling me about how everyone who has tried to leave the unit has been given a negative or mediocre assessment by their nurse manager. According to her, the manager is trying to hang on to the staff they have and won't help anyone to leave or better their career. This seems very wrong to me - and possibly VERY damaging to the futures of the Nurses she may
be disseminating misinformation about in the interest of her staffing. This could affect decisions for jobs or raises years down the line... Is this defamation of character?
