Hi, recently I was promoted to nurse manager/director of subacute unit. On couple of occasions, I've noticed that CNAs do not follow my orders, and I tried to ignore it, I thought maybe I am overreacting, however today I had an incident that I really need to address. I had a pt who was potential for elopement, I asked the CNAs to observe the pt for couple of minutes until I come back and apply watchmate on the pt. All CNAs laughed at me, and walked away, the oldest of the CNAs come back and asked me what exactly did I asked them to do, she walked away and did not listen to what I was going to say. When physical therapy saw what had happened two of them offered to watch the elevator until I came back. A watchmate was placed on the pt. I had to leave the floor for a meeting, when I came back I was told that while I was away, the social worker told the nurse providing care for the pt to take the watchmate off, and they did while I was away. Tommorrow I am going to have a meeting. I need help. Thank you.
