So I get a call from our corp nurse consultant the other day stating that an aid (that was a no call/no show x2 in a row (after only 2 days of work)) had posted on a local news media FB site about the facility I work for, it was awful! it said (not exactly the words she used) 'i saw people laying in their own BM and urine and when i asked someone about it, they told me, we don't change them until bed time, and I saw break down on one resident and told the nurse in charge and she said "do I look like I care, do you see care in this face? she is dying." I am so horrified to go back!'
well the reason I'm so afraid is that the only 2 nights she worked, I was on one of those nights. I have already talked to the corp consultant RN and told her the truth, and so did my counter part and our aids. this aid never reported any break down to either one of us nurses nor did she report to my other aids. And I can't see the other 2 nurses saying this either. I'm afraid for 1) my job and 2) my license. I am a brand new nurse (got my license this summer). I'm a single mom of 2 with bills I can't afford not to work (like most of us)... what should I do?! my friend advised me to not say anything to my bosses or anything until they ask, but I'm afraid that this will make me look guilty, but i'm also afraid that if I dont' say anything i'll look guilty... torn :/ I LOVE nursing!
