I work in LTC as a LPN. I have a co-worker who is a LPN too and is going for her RN BSN. I have heard from many if my other nurses she does not care about the residents. There had been times where she will not do a fall report, will not note orders, contact family or pharmacy. My self and some if my other nurses are getting tired if it should someone say something to our DON? It just seems like she just want the title and the money she does not have the heart. Not to mention the CNA hate her and she goes after them if they say something to her that she does not like.

When I note orders or contact pharmacy or complete a fall report, I'm not necessarily doing so because I care about the residents. I'm doing it because it's my job. There are many relatively "uncaring" (and what you describe as uncaring, I'd describe as reserved) people who are
competent nurses and excellent at their job. And there are those who love the residents to death, but are totally incompetent and horrible nurses.
Also, if this nurse is not completing fall reports or not noting orders, I am quite sure your DON is already well aware. What would the point be of you saying something? How is it any of your business? Are you her supervisor? Are you responsible for auditing her charting? If not, just stick to *your* job duties, and let your manager attend to this.
