  1. Hi everyone,

    I have been an LVN for fifteen years, and as far as the patient care goes I love what I do and get a tremendous amount of satistfaction. My problems through the years have been with back stabbing co-workers. It drives me absolutely crazy at times. I have recently started a new job, I followed one of my old supervisors, I should have known better, she is not a person of integrity and tells alot of lies and thinks nothing of it. Who gets hurt it doesn't matter, and she has two allies, now we are all new at this new job, and the administrator doesn't know any of us that well, I just hope that my reputaion doesn't get tarnished becasuse of who I know. I love home health nursing, and it is not always easy to get into a company. I don't worry about getting another job, they have always come easy and I work very hard. What I really need help with is to learn how to get olong with my co-workers, and not let them get to me. Recently they have messed with me by messing with my schedule, no visits, no money, it is sad. Thank God the administrator just hired me full time so hopfully tha will end. ANy suggestions girls and guys. Thanks for your time.

    Hi, Ann. Welcome to allnurses. I don't have any advice except to hang in since you stated that now that you've gone full time, that should take care of the work/caseload you need...I, too, as many, many others have experienced the same type of lateral abuse in nursing. I suppose the best course is to keep your head down, do your job, try to ignore the backstabbing. I know that's not very helpful. Perhaps others in the forum can answer better. Good luck and Happy Holidays!
