So, here it goes. Today my problem child (an incrediby abusive patient who desperately needs a psych eval) acted out once again. She hit me (just lightly), threatened to kill a resident on the floor below mine, spouted racial slurs at myself and a resident, tried to kick yet another resident, etc... She caused countless confrontations t/o the day. I'm so sick of her s*** and so are the other residents. The residents have actually contacted and met with the Department of Social & Human Services regarding getting her kicked out. The problem is that my DNS is a p**** and doesn't stand up for his nurses.
The husband is a head case as well. He's a loose cannon and he complains about how staff treats her on a consistent basis. He ignores the fact that she's a wack job who abuses staff. We have some residents with major psych issues and missy here is crusing for a bruising.
Quite frankly, I'm afraid that someone is going to hurt her one of these times. Some of our patients have terrible tempers.
I am asking myself if I work for the right DNS, though. He never sticks up for his nurses. What has he done for us lately? Hmm...
