- 0Mar 25, '05 by ARNPsomedayChad, nursing entails big risks, we do not need crime from the outside coming in!
Please speak to your nurse supervisor, DON, NM, safetey commitee or whomever to keep this nurse and her criminal partner OUT of your facility!
Don't all hospitals and clinics post regulations about it being prohibited to bring firearms into the facility?
- 0Mar 25, '05 by night owlThis is crazy! Regardless whether or not you witnessed her with a pistol, someone should have notified the supervisor, and then the police. I would be terrified to work with her not knowing what was going to happen while she was there. No one should have to work under this kind of stress and as someone said everyone's safety is at risk. If the boyfriend is a drug dealer, what makes you think she's not doing drugs? For the safety of everyone, this NA needs to be terminated.
- 0Mar 25, '05 by Jo DirtQuote from robin_mds_nurseI have one burning question: WHY is this CNA still working at that facility???That girl needs to seek employment elsewhere! She is putting the rest of the staff, residents, and visitors at risk. I would be afraid to work my shift!
They need help that bad?
- 0Mar 26, '05 by Twinkie1Quote from Chad_KY_SRNAThank goodness they fired her! :angel2:They fired her on monday. Her ex was also banned from the facility but has been trying to sneak in. They both hate me. Now I am liable to be the one that gets shot. More details later, I promise.
Just remember, she brought it upon herself. Also , I'm sure they have more enemies than they count! Keep safe! Since her ex is banned from the facility and still tries to sneak in , get a restaining order a few nights in jail might change his mind
Best of Luck 2 U ! Please keep us up to date.

If you are concerned about your (or anyone elses) safety, maybe you can speak to the police. They might be able to keep an eye on your area a bit more at night, or whatever. I guess it depends on the area you live in, and what the cops are like. I know up here, the RCMP have been very helpful in the past, so maybe the boys in blue can help you out, on your end.
- 0Mar 28, '05 by AntikigirlI would certainly report this to the administration or even higher up the ladder! This is a safety issue for your staff and residents and in my state that is a mandatory thing for me to report!
Not to mention that if there EVER was a gun branished at my facility...no matter who did it, I would have them escorted out by the police! There is NO place for a gun at an LTC unless it is held by a police or security (if needed).
Also the phone calls are harrassment and are not good for staff or residents.
I would be scared too...I would report it as soon as possible to the admin, police, board of nursing, ombudsman group..anyone! I would not allow this behavior in a medical facility!
I had some family members escorted out of my facility for being outragiously drunk and screaming at the caregivers. They came in screaming that their loved one need watermellon in the middle of the winter at 2300 (I think they were a bit high too!), and basically started tearing up the kitchen in our 15 bed secure unit! Okay these are demented patients in there and any disruption really scares them and it causes all heck to break loose. And it did, for three days those poor folks were scared and didn't know why and had behavioral issues we had to quell. Those folks aren't allowed into our facility anymore or we call the police!
