    Yes, giving him the cup of coffee crossed my mind as a possibility. But, in the moment, the way he was treating me and everyone else (including our brand new, nervous little 19 year old tech), made me want to do everything but give him the coffee. I was mad and angry at how he was treating me. Again, looking back on it maybe I should have just given it to him-but could that have made him stay longer in the day, and then I would have had to deal with him even longer?
    Any patient has the right to refuse a doctor's prescribed treatment. YOU had no right to refuse the patient's request. It's a hospital, not a jail.

    "but could that have made him stay longer in the day, and then I would have had to deal with him even longer?"

    This is not about you, it's about the patient. You basically bounced out a patient that was not ready to go home, that even rescinded his own discharge and was visibly too weak to manage his own care... because your feelings were hurt.

    Talk to your risk manager, make sure your malpractice insurance is in effect.

    He is supposed to be your life partner and support you.

    Choose your battles wisely. It's going to battle that should not happen.

    You will not be able to change her behavior.

    "She's also poked into other people's charts for no reason." Inform management of this and she will no longer be around to be annoying.

    Night shift is hard on the body and mind. You should be taking care of yourself.

    If boyfriend does not understand that.. you need to rest and recharge, you need a new boyfriend.

    Your priority is to take care of yourself.
    If daycare is not an option, how about a nervous breakdown? Do you have time for that?
    There is much to learn about safe nursing practice during the first year, tough to do when sleep-deprived.

    Later on, when you are able to handle a full time job, just explain that you left because you had a newborn at the same time you started your career. Even the most heartless HR and NM will get that.

    Best wishes, now go take care of yourself.
