...... that's all I want to know.
I work my butt off at my job, I have 54 residents to watch over, I try to do my best job 99 percent of the time at least... I really do try very hard to get my work done, get my charting done, plus just make sure everyone is okay.
Last night I received a write up... because one of my residents, a lady with known behavior issues, dementia, non-compliance with meds... just returned from a stay at a psychiatric facility... called her roommate a *****, and I didn't report it RIGHT AWAY, at 6 o clock in the morning while I'm doing my med pass, to the DON. Attached to the write up was a post it note that said, essentially, "I'll decide what your consequence is after I review your file".
I would understand reporting say, two men having a heated verbal altercation. Two women calling each other names.
Anyway.... I just would never have guessed that this was reportable. I feel like I don't know anything sometimes. I feel like I completely lack that CYA mentality. I have a hard time seeing details; I see big pictures. It's the kind of person I am.
I've been at this job almost six months and though I hate to, I've just got to find another job. I'd really love to go back to psych. *sigh* But as long as I'm in LTC, HOW do I stay out of trouble????????
