RN from h#ll - page 2

The facility I worked at last week has a new QA nurse.... completely clueless when it comes to LTC. Being as I'm agency, I try not to get involved in the politics. In fact, it's one of the great... Read More

    The sad thing is if someone did stand up to her guess who would be written up. Although sometimes it would be worth it just to see people like her get so red in the face you think their going to have a stroke lol Oh well, she'll sink her own ship, people like that always do but of course it's NEVER their fault

    these types are very easy to unseat....usually they are completely rigid and uncompromising people...and maybe display OCD issues....
    These are the types that will completely destabilize when they are on a rant about something, and you come up with something tangental and innocuous...
    Like:
    she: "I am telling you all...this has to be done THIS WAY!!" "I know what I am talking about!!!" blah blah...
    you: "did you know that the male cuttlefish turns blue when he mates with the female?"
    Just pick some innane subject, and blather it until she wanders off in a heap...
    It works everytime....heheheheh!
    OMG...this does work. LOL. I've used this method a few times on one of my COWs. She would walk away ranting about something else. I would be LMAO.

    I worked with some great LPN's at the hospital - just remember, tho, it CAN go both ways!

    When I first left the hospital to go to LTC, there was one LPN that did everything she could to make life miserable for me - she would argue with everything I said - it didn't matter what it was. It was totally bizarre - I finally just started ignoring her or mouthing back, and she was a little better.

    Where I work now, I'm the only RN on the floor, and I don't think about it most of the time. Our jobs are the same, etc. EXCEPT when people start calling in sick - they transfer the calls up to me!! It irritates me half to death. And the other night the LPN was having a hassle with a resident in back - so she wanted ME to go back and take care of it. Cause I'm an RN. I asked what my being an RN had to do with anything? I told her I'd come back if she really needed me, but she needed to try to learn how to resolve things on her own without letting them get out of hand.

    All in all, tho, I agree that we can all learn from each other. I can't tell you the number of things I've learned from the CNA's, bless their hearts!
