tweety....nothing to add above the others except
remember sjoe's tagline
you are doing a great job; dont' take the blame lying down.

Thanks for letting me vent.

You did right. Those animals.
Jul 15, '033rdshftguy, 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
Jul 16, '03Hoo 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)

Jul 18, '03I just saw a funny cartoon in which two managers were discussing inadaquate staffing and low productivity. Kinda went like this.

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

Jul 18, '03Tweety- 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!!
