Things you'd LOVE to tell coworkers...and get away with it! - page 49

Please don't label this thread "negative". It is meant to be fun. Your scrubs are ugly. I don't think you are "cute" when you get all googley-eyed and giggly around the young docs. I think... Read More

    Dear Embittered Former Coworker,

    I'm sorry to hear you were "unjustly" fired after your ten billionth medication error after three years of loyal service as an LVN. However, a quick look at the State Board of Nursing website shows that your nursing license was issued in January 2014. Maybe instead of making false abuse allegations to state (After you were fired, natch, because God forbid you advocate for a resident while "working" at our facility, and found to be unsubstantiated, of course... I would never abuse a resident) against me because I got hired for the full time job you wanted, you can maybe get that "practicing nursing without a license" confusion straightened out.

    Whenever you'd like to stop Skyping that shirtless dude who helped you make the kid you would allow to run about the facility unsupervised. Or just whenever you have a spare moment and you find yourself not on Facebook.

    BYYYYYYYYE, Felicia

    I am SO glad to see this thread bumped back up! From spending the entire previous 6 week schedule in the telemetry room aka broom closet:

    Yes I know it's annoying to hear us page overhead to put leads on patients, but maybe if you would go in and fix it the first time you wouldn't have to hear it and we wouldn't have to hear your pissy attitude when we call and remind you.

    THIS one I DID say: Pt. shows asystole/leads off on the monitor. We could tell it wasn't a real asystole but we still have to call the desk. When we called, no one answered, so in that instance, we have to call an RRT to be on the safe side. Of course, someone calls back with an attitude talking about, "that patient is getting cleaned up, god!!" I immediately said "well, it comes down to answer the phone when we call instead of looking at the caller ID, seeing the word "telemetry" and staring at the damn phone without picking it up!!"

    You're actually the one who's making your job harder, not your patients.

    You have been here longer than me and are slowly being considered a senior nurse and cannot handle your assignment not want to change enough to improve your practice-THAT is scary and frustrating to me.

    You may be a hotshot facility NP, but there's a reason the Hospice evals are entrusted to the lowly Hospice RN and not you.

    It's because you don't know diddly-squat about LCDs, what a terminal diagnosis actually is, and who makes the final determination regarding appropriateness for Hospice.

    In the span of 10 minutes, you told me:

    - "They don't use that 6 month thing for eligibility anymore." Really. The legal definition of Hospice, per Medicare, is still "Hospice care is for people with a life expectancy of 6 months or less if the disease runs its normal course."

    - "The family has approved Hospice." No, the family has come to accept the concept of Hospice. The Hospice team decides if Hospice admission will be approved.

    - "I see PAD as the terminal diagnosis." Good thing you aren't the one deciding eligibility then, because while it can be very painful, it's actually a co-morbid condition. Meaning it ain't gonna kill ya.

    This conversation today has just put you on my "pay no never-mind to" when it comes to gathering information about patient decline.

    I agree with you on this! I have thought that to myself so many times. I could not have said it any better!!

    Get off your lazy @$$ and DO SOMETHING! There is no reason you need to sit on your butt and order supplies while dirty rooms need cleaning and two charts are ready and pts need to be brought back. You can order supplies at the end of the day, not in the middle of the pt rush. And why are you coming in late every day, while I'm here on time, and you leave before I do? No, if you insist on coming in late you should be the one to stay late. (Too bad this offender is my supervisor and I can't say anything to them or to management.)

    Why do you sit back on your behind when you can clearly hear/see a pt is escalating?

    And why didn't any of you respond to my calls for help?

    And why are all of the pts call lights placed out of reach by being placed under the mattress?

    Oh, and I wish I would have said, "I know you heard me call for help. You were in the room next door."

    I'm a traveler. Your own staff was assaulted and you did nothing. Why?!??!

    And from last night's LOVELY pick-up shift:

    Look, honey, I know you're upset because you had more patients than the other tech. I know you're frustrated, and trust me, I get why. I was a tech for 15 years before I took this job, so I understand. However, when you brought this up to me at the beginning of the shift, I advised you to either work it out with your shift partner or go to the charge nurse if that didn't work (which she did not do). The time to complain would have been at START of shift, not by proceeding to have a full on meltdown 30 minutes before shift change. Or, if you must, do not then try to drag the unit clerk (me) in the middle by going "well, Mikey knew!" at which point I repeated what I said earlier, which is WORK IT OUT AMONG YOURSELVES or GO TO CHARGE! **smh**

    This one I wasn't there for, but I'm still shaking my head over it...In what universe is it even remotely okay to sit in the tele room, turn the lights off, pull out an Ipad, and proceed to get so engrossed in the movie that you lose all track of the monitor? It sucks that you two were caught by house sup and immediately suspended, but you brought it on yourselves. And you guys were cool too.

    I'm so glad I worked the 2pm-10 pm shift with you, the last 4 and a half hours of it, anyway. I'm so glad I came in to drop something off at the facility at the time and stopped to talk to your crazy self. I can't believe they had you working as the only nurse in the building. They really don't appreciate you enough. You are a gift to your residents, their family members, and your CNAs. I loved how we were able to handle that surprise admission together. Yesterday was the first time in a long time I enjoyed working second shift. Come work graveyards with me when the other night nurse goes on maternity leave!!!
