Has anybody got a link to an article which was in the nursing journal from the ANA last month about doctors and how to deal with them as bullies??
I cannot find my journal as I need to find a copy and take it to work.
I had to challenge a Doctor yesterday and he couldn't believe it, but I refuse to be treated like a second class citizen by a Doctor from a third world country who down treads his own woman and thinks he can do the same to the nurses. I informed my manager that I was fuming and what I had said, she was fine with it because all her staff are fed up to the back teeth of the hospitalists in my hospital.
I am sick of not being given respect, and I stood my ground.
The doctor had a grievance but in my opinion when the wrong way about it and his arrogance and god syndrome wont wash with me.
The nurses where I work are afraid of the doctors and worry when they have to page them incase their head gets bitten off-what kind of behaviour is that-bullying is what it is. They stomp around the floor muttering about the nursing staff and the incompetence of the nurses but dont ever ever take a nurse to one side in private and discuss with them the problem they need sorting or to question why an order wasn't carried out. We dont need parents, we are not children who need to be scolded-we are professions in our right who deserve to be given respect.
Well I for one am not and I repeat not putting up with it any more and I shall be putting in my own grievance. So watch this space
