- 4Mar 22, '12 by hope3456Quote from imintroubleYeah this is what happened to me. I didn't sign out a couple (of the 200) meds i had administered that shift - an 'error' most of the other nurses make as well. Although some nurses sign the meds out without giving them...who cares???? just as long as they got 'signed' for.False documentation is the rabbit management pulls out of the hat when they want to get rid of you.
I'm sorry it happened to you. I'll take you at your word that your error was innocent. A simple oversight on a busy day. When you're "caught" you feel slimy and sick. Like a liar and a cheat. For an honorable person that's a pretty crappy feeling.
Again, I'm sorry. I wouldn't wish false documentation on anybody.
The NH is aware it happens everyday. But they targeted YOU. I'd be looking for another job ASAP
- 2Mar 22, '12 by annemariehoschMy advice to you is get out of there. Even if you don't get fired, you do not sound like you are happy where you are. You worked hard to get your license don't jeopardize it for some ******employer who thinks 1 nurse to 30 patients is acceptable.
- 3Mar 22, '12 by PeepnBiscuitsRNWow, every post I read from you makes me want to run to my manager and kiss her feet and thank her profusely for hiring me. I'm so sorry you work in such a heckhole of a job. It sounds like this place is a trainwreck.
That said, you see a lot of nurses cutting corners...that's their license, that's their problem. Don't look at what they're doing- protect your license!!! Their corner cutting will come back to haunt them eventually. Be it where they are now, or somewhere else...old habits die hard.
