So, OP, now that you have been informed, what do you say?
Right. A state senator is going to take the time to get a BON employee fired because a nurse claims that person was "rude."
"Work with me, Doc, Let's stay out of Court".
I guess when you're new, it's natural to be scared and take to heart all the trash your coworkers tell you. But try to be calm, be prepared as others here have advised, and just do your job.
I've rarely had to deal with this and never more than once with any particular doctor because I let them know, nicely but firmly, that we are a team trying to care for our patient.
Well I can say you're better than me. I usually just report what was given to me/what changes today. I do look in the chart if I feel like something is missing or the previous nurse wasn't quite sure of something, but I don't tailor anything nurse by nurse.
Those kardex's interest me. We don't have anything that fancy, but you mentioning them makes me wish we had. It would be nice to look at instead of going to a million different places in the chart to find one thing.
I'm with you, I like knowing what is going on now/recently.
She never said she put meds in her pocket or on her person. She might have left them in the patients' med drawers.
I agree that she needs to stop doing what she got flagged for.
Several points to make based on your reply.
1) This "footnote" is actually from a scholarly reference and is a piece of a concept analysis on "Wisdom" in nursing.

2) As someone with an undergraduate degree in management, 5 years of military service, 8 years in business, management, HRM, and project management, and 5 years of nursing I feel I am pretty well qualified to discuss management roles and leadership qualities. My graduate education has also helped me to view the wider scope of nursing practice and my background has helped me to develop ideas, thoughts, and views on the profession.
I do realize that for a person with 34 years of experience in anything, it might be hard to comprehend newer philosophies and theories in organization, management, and leadership with solid research backing up such principles. I also realize it could be difficult to have enough emotional intelligence to not be prideful or boastful of oneself and to state in a public forum that one has never made a wrong call. I also realize that it might be difficult for someone to recognize "footnotes" from peer reviewed articles might have some validity and could contribute to the direction and the evolution of the profession of nursing. I totally get it.
3) I also totally understand that you would think your ranking of 33 years of nursing practice might allow you to come on this public forum and talk down to or berate nurses with less experience in nursing, even when some of those nurses are proven professionals in other fields. It is ok, I get it. I don't take it personally. But one thing you should recognize, aside from your superiority complex as both an experienced nurse and someone who has never made a wrong call, is that it is ok for other professionals to have differing opinions and different thought processes. It is ok for people to come into this profession with different backgrounds and challenge the status quo. Change is a good thing. Nursing in it's current state is unsustainable and in need of drastic change, the ways of the past will not work for the future.
I also think she means preterm labor. I googled it, and got:
Praise The Lord
Pedro the Lion (band)
Pass The Loo
Part Time Lover
Pay the Lady (National Thoroughbred Racing Association)
Pushing the Limits (gaming team)
Post Tenebras Lux (Latin: Light After Darkness)
Passion Tea Lemonade (beverage)
... You did say that you wanted general nurses to chime in, but it's hard when I can't decipher your meaning ...
