    Just a thought- for all the supervisors out there- it is wise to make a personal visit to the floor when a nurse experiences an episode like this and offer moral support, and helping out as much as you can would probably be appreciated too. A phone call doesn't cut it in my opinion.

    You guys, your posts have been SOOOO helpful to me.

    Ashamed to say it, I still struggle with the walk-all-over-me syndrome. (Only in nursing that is!) While I've never had a doc yell at me, I still feel I have to grovel when I call a doc in the middle of the night. WHY DO I FEEL THIS WAY??

    I've been a nurse for only two years. I hope I get over it soon!

    Mollymo, I hope if I encounter your situation, I'll respond just as you did!!

    yeh i know what you mean....i am a new RN too, and i hate the fact that when you wake up the house doc you gotta go round and see if anyone needed to ask them anything or get orders for Pitocin, cuz You know if you call them up and to wake them, it had better be worthy.....i hate groggy diva house docs. so many a night i have been tempted to run past their room then knock, and run away....

    SpongeBob! Ha Ha Ha! That's so funny. But, it wouldn't be funny if I were his patient or I was taking care of his pts.
    Lacy, can you get standing orders for this guys post ops so you don't have to deal with him so often?
    Mollymo, I applaud you for standing up to that Doc.
