Quote from hgraves64
I told the Charge nurse about her Staff nurse's wildly inappropriate questioning. Charge said that "she would deal with it. At the end of the shift, Staff nurse had not apologized for his behavior, so I emailed his manager about the incident. The manager did not email me back.
Would there be anything else you would have done?
Would there be anything else
that I would have done? You mean on top of what you already
You already did much more than I ever would have done in the same situation. You told the charge nurse and
sent an email to the manager? Why did his question provoke such a strong reaction in you? If it were me I would likely simply have answered his question (Not covered by The Official Secrets Act).
If I for some reason (although I'm not sure what that reason would be) had felt disinclined to do so, I would just have declined to answer. That would have been the end of that.
His admittedly rather curt way of addressing you might indicate that he was feeling stressed/dumped on and perhaps that he suspected that you carried a much lighter patient load? While he could have asked the question in a more curteous way, I don't see why it had to escalate to the level of "management-involved" drama.
I can't help myself.. I'm curious...
How many patients did
a) More than him.
b) Fewer than him.

(Oops, I just remembered that the Official Secrets Act is a UK thing. Any way, the principle still applies here
