I had three admissions coming and the MD on the floor. I had four discharges to get ready for later in the week, two drug seeking elders in pain with behaviors, one LPN write up to finish and had just secured ten minutes to eat at my desk. My charting is behind, my care plans
are even worse. I didn't even get to see any of my forty patients today. During my ten minutes to wolf down my sandwich, the ADON sent a new employee (RN super) who is on orientation to my office with an incident report that needed a care plan update documented. She said to me "I was told by _______ to not leave until this was done, so you have to do this right now". And. I. Lost. It. I told the poor new girl that she could go back and tell _______ that if she wanted to come down here and stand over me and micromanage she was welcome to, otherwise I would get to the report as soon as I had eaten and will gladly bring it down to her office. Oh it hit the fan. ______ came to my office and we had a great talk about my attitude. Honestly, how dare she send someone to stand over me like that!! I routinely put in a 50hr week for a 37.5 hr salary. I put out good work. I assess my patients and do my best to lead my floor by example. But this was just unreal. I've never been treated like that. It was demeaning and I felt like I was being supervised like an errant child. I have ten years and a BSN. I'm ready to throw my badge on the floor and walk away.
