I am working at a unit where staffs do help each other, however staffs are splited into groups and I belong to none of the groups so I have no say in anything. I do not mind of not belonging to a group but I am getting sick of hearing them complaining behind each other's back. Nothing seems to be perfect. I have nurse clearly show disagreement and shook her head on me just because I did not move the bed that she wanted for my patient (Come on, it is just a bed. What is big deal about it?). I have CA literally standing/talking/face-booking and yelled at me when I asked for help. I accidentally put EKG on wrong spot and the tech in middle of nursing station in a loud voice asked me if I know how to put EKG on a patient (Seriously for the first time in my life I felt like I am being bullied...to the point one of the nurses-The only one who ever speak up for me said that it is fixed. there is no need to be like that for that tech to walk away). I have tech informed me about change of rhythm and I questioned it , then tech turned around saying F word when I stood next to that person or talked about it to other people when I sat just across the station.
I feel very uncomfortable working on a unit where people expect each other to do things the way they want, if something is not right or not the way they wants, they talk about it behind other person back
Is this how most nursing units are?
