- Apr 13, '12 by clfrnNo you don't always get the assignments with the most difficult patients. No one else seems to struggle with these patients, so give some thought as to why you find them so difficult. ;-)
- Apr 15, '12 by VespertinasI work every floor in this hospital and I get along with EVERY tech in here but you so don't try telling me *I* have a problem. New nurse (>1yr) headed for management, I hope it's making you feel special by loudly announcing all the fires you're putting out because no one else thinks so...except, sadly, management.
- Jun 13, '12 by ShayRNTo the co-worker who has made my work life a living h#*! I sincerely wish you all the best. To my manager who did nothing to stop it, despite numerous requests, I am leaving. Good luck with her. Oh, wait. I did say that.
- Jun 17, '12 by WeepingAngelDid you ever notice that when you come in after working after me, the patients aren't screaming and moaning with pain? Maybe one day you could return the favor, so I don't have to spend an hour catching up on pain meds with hurting, cranky patients? Hmm?
- Jun 17, '12 by ljcovingtonTo the passive -aggresive nurse I have to give report too you really think you are helping me by staring at,me with contempt because I dont' seem to do things just like you? You may think I have no clue what you are thinking of me, but I am not just a pretty face. Your body language tells the story everytime you look at me whem I give report, walk past you while you are at the desk,etc. Don't take my silence for ignorance either. Instead of looking down at me, why don't you say what to have to say and get it over with so there doesn't have to be so much tension it's like cutting cheese. And by the way, I may not be the fastest nurse, but I take excellent care of whatever patients I have that day. Did you think they were smiling when they saw me because they were passing gas? So get off your high horse and be supportive instead of destructive.

Maybe one day you could return the favor, so I don't have to spend an hour catching up on pain meds with hurting, cranky patients? Hmm?
Notice how when you start the shift, non of the patients I have been assigned are dirty, wet, smelly, thirsty, hungry, hanging out the bed, vital signs are up to date, rooms are clean/tidy? I would love to start my own work one day rather than spend hours first cleaning up after you. Thanks.
- Jun 21, '12 by determined2doitThanks for this thread, it really helps! Here goes:
Excuse me, I KNOW you are a super nurse, and I KNOW you know how to do EVERYTHING all by yourself, but do you mind if a little pion like myself help?
Oh his bs is 46 and you send him to me? How nice, so you didn't do a nurse intervention? Like give him some oj maybe?
Oh the pulse ox machine doesn't work so we'll just skip that portion of our assessment. Never mind that he has a history of Asthma!
Phone's ringing its for you. Please don't tie up the line with all your boyfriends as someone with a real emergency may need to get thru!
This is just the starters!
- Jun 22, '12 by chevyvI've come to the conclusion that you are simply missing a few lightbulbs. How can you threaten to write your staff up for everything and expect us to love our job? I ask you to back off and let us do our job because, I know this is hard to believe, but before you came on board last year, we actually managed to get everything done that you now want to write us up for not doing your way.
Please quit and bother some other poor nursing staff. Just go away. Quit sleeping with the security guards. There is only one way you could have hurt your back at work...you do no pt care, you do nothing but sit on your arse and make everyone's life miserable (well except for those security that you manage to make miserable too) so that leaves bending over your desk. We all know it! Go have sex in your own home, it's disgusting and your disgusting. You may think your a manager, but you suck big honking red baboon butt! Whew that's all for now folks!
- Jun 22, '12 by sauconyrunnerwhew! this is a good steam letter off er thread!
TO my current Boss: You are only my Boss because NO ONE will take the actual Bosses position in our office. You know NOTHING about what I am supposed to do in this role, and thus I wish you would broker an agreement ot allow me to be supervised by our parent facility...and leave it at that. Instead, you are making me feel quite nervous, and the act that you are running the ship single handedly is getting old, as we all know it is the rest of the office that is functioning well....
Please do not take credit for my work....YOu do enough work on your own and I don't see why it is such a problem to allow me to succeed in my position, which is not your position and in no way threatens you!
I admit, I feel a bit better!
- Jun 22, '12 by Bec7074Stop trying to take the easy assignments and vented patients.
You're life isn't going to end just because we changed scrub colors.
If you're not happy with your job-quit.
Everyone knows you ask for help but are always "too busy" to return it.
Stop telling me how you would handle my patient. I got it.
No, you aren't Gods gift to nursing.
Just because you work in ICU doesn't mean your automatically intelligent. Stop acting like you know everything (this is coming from an ICU nurse )
Stop being so darn loud. If you wake my patients, I will beat you.
Calm the eff down.
Ah, that feels therapeutic. Good exercise everyone
