I worked with her evil twin sister!!!!
She was a new grad that new everything, how to manage everything, just the devil in scrubs
Document everything. The NA was in tears that worked with her. Super nurse didn't like her phoning home at 0600 to wake her kids "there are things to do around here"
I worked the same shift as you and I guess we just sat around all night and let the residents put themselves to bed...
Major brownnosing to managment team as well. She was the golden girl until we discovered that she was refusing to give prn meds over night, and also she started to "document my shifts mistakes" One of our wonderers would get up during the night and rearrange his clothes for the morning, he'd been doing it for years, but she felt that the rooms should remain tidy overnight!? Yup kept pictures on her cell phone. Violation of confidentiality right there. We had the union steward to into management and discuss her behaviours.
My favourite was document a wound as infected when it was sloughing present that she mistook for pus/drainage.. Ever had to explain the difference on a shift change?
Your nurse might just be very new and insecure. She just feels that she has to stamp her routine on to everybody because she's new and her way has got to be better. Be thankful she's not a dog and peeing on the unit to mark her turf...
