What did someone do that you knew to get fired or kicked out of school? - page 4

I've heard it said that most nurses who get fired are released for drug abuse. Do you find this to be the case in your experience?... Read More

    Aborted herself????? What do you mean aborted herself, something like a "coat hanger abortion?"

    Yeah...what on earth does "aborted oneself" mean ?

    students are kicked out of school generally for failing classes/clinical.

    nurses can lose their jobs for many reasons. drug abuse is only a small part of those that lose there jobs. other reasons that i have seen include multiple/serious med errors, abuse mental/physical of patients, undependability (read:too many absences/call outs). quite frankly, here in the south, nurse managers may write you up for not wearing makeup or not wearing enough white, anything that they want as fewer hospitals are unionized.

    more often, the employees that are not liked by management are "run off" through excess floating, undesirable assignments, lousy schedules rather than being fired outright.

    due to the shortage, however, i see more bad employees getting kept on staff....which tends to make everyone miserable. one bad apple can truly spoil the whole basket.
    pathetic, isn't it? they seem to have "gold card status", coming in late, only half doing their work,then proceeding to take long, leisurely lunches and leaving early, while the responsible ones are left to do their work, too. this is only one of many reasons why i am leaving my present job and going to work for a temp agency, where i won't have to worry about being slammed with someone else's work! :angryfire

    How about an on staff makeup artist to get your faces on?
    Quote from Marie_LPN
    If a facility is going to suggest i wear makeup, i suggest they buy it for me.

    Or start making the men wear it too.

    I was recently married and visiting my very feminine in laws. I very carefully packed a case of new makeup. Each morning I got up and dutifully put on what I felt like was clown makeup. Even my husband commented to me about how much I was wearing. I was about to go to a party with my SILs. I had even put on extra for the special occaision. With a look of horror on their faces, they asked if I was going to put on any makeup for the party. LOL I rolled on the floor.



    Quote from LPN1974
    The posts about the makeup were a hoot.
    But I agree.....for MYself only, I look like a ghost without it.
    Now, if my job wants to buy it for me I would have no objection.
    I did have one co-worker fuss at me once, saying I should wear makeup everyday to work. I told her I do get up and put on makeup everyday.
    She tried to argue with me and say I didn't.
    But ya know, here in the south, in the dead heat of summer, when it get so humid, makeup can slide off of me like oil. I told her that was what was happening. By time I got to work it was mostly gone.

    And the makeup thing is just a lot to ask for, for some. Even with the hypoallergenic products out there, there are some people that are allergic to those.

    I would feel sorry for any employer that has the beans to suggest i wear makeup.

    I don't doubt that Marie!



    Double trouble if he told you to wear makeup while standing in the 8-12 items line up with a 35 item order huh?

    I'd pay money to see that! :chuckle

    Well that's why i said that if a facility is going to suggest or require a woman to wear makeup, then they need to ask the same of the men. It's only fair.

    There is a lawsuit pending now like this...filed by a female casino worker who's male boss suddenly after many years on the job 'required' her to wear makeup. Interesting to see how it comes out. Her point was the same: why do the guys with less than perfect complexions not have to wear makeup?

    I'm amazed hospitals would do the same with nurses...but then again, their goal does seem to be portraying portraying professional nurses as hostesses and maids. :stone
