i just wanted to ask a question. WOULD YOU PUT YOUR JOB ON THE LINE FOR ANOTHER COWORKER ? Well i have been gone for the last few weeks because i have been fighting for my job. Our hospitol was recently taken over by a new company. My boss in the ER resigned ( well pushed to resign) , also the Med Surg manager. We got 3 new managers. Med Surg, ER and a clinical manager. all worked together else where for 10 plus years. well it so happens the new er manager hated lpns.
Well after encouraging school one day the next while all Managers, Administrator and ER director was out of town he decided to get rid of the LPN,s. Guess he thought we were going to go quietly. UH UH UH NO! Okay here it is, all docs, and nurses fighting for the lpns for 2 weeks and my fellow coworker and good friend stumbled upon a letter. It said things like lpns were worthless techs, screw the new owner if he didnt like his decisions, screw this doc and screw that doc AND oh ya comes to find out in this letter he didnt like anyone that was not white. Okay so what was she to do with this letter? Morals, Principals set in, leave it alone its private? Or let everyone know what this person was about. So she chose to make copies and ditribute the letter throughout the hosp., thinking if she just gave it to administration it wouldnt get very far. The docs. ,administration, and all employees got a copy even the new owner....Well the 2 managers this letter was from are no longer at the facility, and yes we get to keep our jobs, and so did the employee that found the letter , although she got suspended for 2 days ( a weekend ) oh what punishment. just let me say one more thing this employee was an ( RN) FIGHTING FOR LPN,s Along side the Doc,s!!! OH MY GOSH ! THE WORLD OF RNS AND LPNS CAN GET ALONG AND STICK TOGETHER! She was brave to do what she did and put her job on the line and she did a good thing by telling all. She could have been fired, and she new that. I WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT SHE DID FOR US! I am still going to school and wont forget where i came from. THANKYOU FOR LISTNING ALICIA

Futurelpn, and Mustagsheba,
Thankyou for your replys, I feel the same. Stand up for what is right!
But i wonder why there was 114 views and only 2 replys??? Does no one want to answer this question? Are they undecided, unwilling, scared to post there true feelings, or just plain dont give a crap what happens to there fellow coworkers. Gosh it truely is a simple question ! Maybe this shows us what nursing has become ( dog eat dog).
