I am at my wits end. I am ADON/ House Supervisor in LTC facility. We have several new grads hired to work PRN. We do give them lots of orientation. They orient on all shifts due to their PRN status.
One nurse on second shift consistently is nasty to her orientees. They have to orient with her because of the need to fill that track if needed.
Anyway, we have talked with her and counseled her, verbally. Then this last week she has a new nurse with her in tears. Now the new nurse has lots of issues. She's scared to death and has very little confidence. But people are different, and some require more feedback than others. I just want this seasoned nurse to provide POSITIVE feed back. I have done all that I know to do, short of writing her up. (I really don't like to do that unless it's a care issue or absenteeism).
Any feedback would be appreciated.
