I guess lack of ecchymosis might be proof of no shots. Do anticoag shots always have to bruise? Maybe some nurses have found a way to give these shots without bruising the patient. Don't know, just wondering. Does anyone know? Why did both nurses get fired? I could see the one who was not really giving the shots being fired. But why the other one?
it wasn't only the lack of bruising but more important, the pt stated
she didn't get injections.
as for the other nurse who was sleeping on the job...
you don't find that a terminable offense?
generally, i believe in sharing concerns w/the colleague first.
truly, i hate having to report others.
i don't know how many times i've given a warning to cna's, and finally warn them that i'll be forced to report to the nm.
one time, i spoke with a nurse with whom i had major concerns.
all she did was try to cover her tracks.
i ended up reporting her as well.
op, just know that it's not even the majority of nurses who go running to the boss.
it's just that it's these types who create toxic working environments, and the only way they're happy is by bringing others down.
nursing is tough on so many levels.
and there aren't any absolute, black and white answers.
it's mostly about using our judgment skills.
when i die, i want that frank sinatra song played...
dang, i want that song BLASTED!
