Vent and Anger - page 2

OK, I'm calm now after a few days of venting of management and coworkers. But I'm still upset. It's a very confusing story and for confidentiality's sake I'll be vague. We were taking care... Read More

    you are doing a great job; dont' take the blame lying down.
    Thanks Deb. When it comes to making myself and "my nurses" look incompetent and even dangerous. Then absolutely not. I won't take this lying down.

    When I or "my" staff make an error, I'm the first to admit it for the sake of honesty and the patient.

    Thanks for letting me vent.

    3rdshftguy, those residents should be thanking your behind for saving theirs!!! they could very well be explaining to some higher ups why their patient died instead of standing at the bedside doing what they should have done 8 hours prior. ego is a very funny thing

    Hoo boy, just another example of pass the buck and kick the guy lower on the totem pole. These baby doc residents are learning early how to blame the nurses. I work with grown docs who try to blame nursing EVERY time their patient has a poor outcome (specially surgeons)

    Hang in there...your good reputation and good documentation will prevail.

    I just saw a funny cartoon in which two managers were discussing inadaquate staffing and low productivity. Kinda went like this.

    The first mgr asks the second mgr "What should we do. Spend time and money correcting the problem and spend more money on staffing? The second mgr replies "Naw, let's do something fun- "Witchunt!".

    I thind what mattsmon81 says is true- your good reputation and good documentation will prevail. From your posts it is easy to see that you are a dedicated caring nurse. Do not let those who are less competent, less caring, ruffle your feathers. And I warn you-if you are still upset about this I might resort to poetry again.lol

    Tweety- sounds like you did everything right and the docs are busy blaming each other. time they took responsibility for their actions. why does this always happen when several teams of docs are involved...suddenly its not their problem and we are left like piggy in the middle!!

    enjoy your days off- you have earnt them!!
