NEED SOME ADVICE
I have been working at my facility for over two years now and my shift gets
along really well,except for one lvn. She is constantly complaining about how
she is the only nurse who does her job correctly. If another nurse doesn't chart
something she has to broadcast it to everyone within earshot. She bullies my
fellow cnas. She hasn't ever treated me that way (maybe because she knows
how outspoken I am). If she decides she wants to mess with someone she
will use evey chance she gets to say things about them. It has gotten to the
point that we try our best to avoid her. She even made a cruel comment about
a former coworker, who recently had a massive stroke. She said what goes around
comes around bcuz ”she didn't change her patients and now she has a bedsore”
We have talked to our DSD and our DON but she is still causing trouble.
One of the cnas refuses to work on nights when she is there. When she
doesn't work the work atmosphere is much happier. When she is there everyone is
tense. What can we, as a shift,
do to her to stop messing with her coworkers
so we can be more harmonious group?
I have tried to talk to her once but she just
denied that she is saying anything wrong. The
other cnas are afraid to anger her because
they think her bullying will get worse, and I
think they're right. She is vindictive and petty.
She even went so far as to scream at a cna
because she had to answer a call light. The
cna was sick and was vomiting at the time. I think if
talking to her would do any good she would have
stopped her behavior by now.
