While I understand Ned's context on this subject, I have been where you are many, many times.
I have heard CNAs telling patients they are the nurse. I've had them be rude and lazy. But now after a long time dealing with that, I work in the NICU and we don't use CNAs. So instead of spending my time being diplomatic and understanding of this behavior, I can now use all the extra time taking more care of my patients.
It's all been said before. But when you go to work and there are 22 "well" babies with 2 nurses, which is against national guidelines, and you somehow manage to get through the shift(12 hours of hell and tears)because the 2 nurses are literally super nurses, management expects you can do it AGAIN.
These 2 nurses didn't do anyone in our profession any favors.
I have gotten phenomenal results calling the corporate hotline. The hospital has to address the charges.
Seriously I have successfully changed things with that method and anonymous
letters to JCHAO work wonders.
Fight this way and we may win the battle.
I have won many and have seen lots of changes as a result.
