I have preety much similar situation here. MY tech is a lazy bone( she usually works with me) she stuck with the TV and phone all the times. Nobody likes her . she is putting my patient in a great danger ..by leaving confused pt on a BSC. not going when they call for help.. I told CN . But it did not work . Manager is aware of it.
I dont want to put my license on risk coz of her . Any idea, suggestion will be highly appreciated.
Document, document, and document "objectively" what you witness and the steps you have taken/persons you have reported to up the chain. Objective notes on your part is key, as well as reflecting date, time, and result. Keep these notes of yours safe and make no mention of them until a time comes when you may need to pull them out. Being professional about it is important, or you become part of the problem.
For example: the word "lazy"...not good, do not reflect that as a descriptor in your notes. Terms like these are Subjective and Judgemental. It reflects only that you have an axe to grind or you have personality differences. Lazy?...what does this mean in objective terms in reference to this co-worker? Objective notes reflect ONLY what you see, hear, smell, or touch, etc....nothing from your heart, soul, or beliefs.
I hope this helps.
