Today I quit my job with no notice as an LNA. My place of employment was rude to employees and caregivers spoke poorly about the residents. I was severely underpaid and I couldn't take it anymore. I got hired for a new job and was waitin fr my start date. My boss said she will be reporting me for neglect and I talked to the board of nursing in my state to see if me not showing up for my shift is considered neglect, and she said no, unless I already accepted my shift for that day, which I did not. But she is telling my co-workers that she is reporting me and she didn't take the time to call me herself to tell me those things. My question is, is it considered neglect and if so, what happens to my LNA license?
You've spoken with your board of nursing regarding the neglect issue and have your answer.
Regarding your former boss not notifying you personally of her intent to report you, why should she? You quit your job without notice, why do you feel that she owes you anything?
