Favortism happens too often between D.O.N's and their freinds. I have been a LPN for 4 years now and have found myself caught in the middle of Favortism. I noticed when a new D.O.N is hired many of the old staff members are fired or stand a great chance of losing their jobs due to the D.O.N trying to hire their freinds.
Most of the time the D.O.N doesnt take time to get to meet the old staff and usually fire great workers. I think this is happening too much in nursing, their should be some kind of limitations on D.O.N's hiring too many freinds. I have experienced some grusome things from this kind of favortism. I've seen unqualified staff hired to be Unit Managers who had no experience but were hired based on the fact that they were the D.O.N's freind.
I was 3rd in seniority at my job and worked there for two years. The D.O.N hired her freind to do office work on the Adon off days, the job was not posted or offered to me. She came right out of training and was offered this position. Im tired of having to walk on egg shells everytime their is a new D.O.N and having to worry about being replaced with one of their freinds.I've seen D.O.N's come up with the smallest reasons to fire people and Im never surprised to see them replaced with a freind. Have anyone else noticed this kind of favortism or been a victim of losing their to a bosses freind?
