    This needs to be addressed with management. Either the nurse manager or the chief of that particular surgeon's specialty.

    WOW. Now I get why I see so many OR openings. One nurse commented that of the 16 new nurses that were recruited, only 5 were still there 6 months later. Stressful environment.

    I'm fortunate enough that the majority of the docs I work with are very pleasant and don't treat the staff bad. That being said, we do have a few that can be. If they get mouthy with me, I get mouthy right back. You have to stand up for yourself or you will never, ever survive in the OR. I have also gone to my boss about a doc before.
