So..I have been on the floor for a couple weeks now and know that everybody is not going to love me and I am not going to love everyone else but....................there a tech that has decided to act like she is my boss. She was my preceptor for 2 of my shifts and was nice. Now she has decided to scold me for not going to lunch by a certain time (this was never mentioned to me by any of my preceptors). She also finds it necessary to always know where I should be (according to her)
and likes to tell me what to do. I appreciate any and all tips since I know I am now where near as fast as the other techs but this falls under the "not WHAT you say but HOW you say it"! I get that I am slower and that I have lots to learn but please do not treat me like I am ignorant. I don't see her act this way with anyone else. In fact she even reminded me on one shift not to get happy about not being split because once the day tech went home I would be split. I especially love how she convinced me to switch halls with her BEFORE
she reminded me of this. I am no fool....she wanted to stay on the hall that would not be split!! Chalk that up to being the new kid on the block and not realizing when the day tech goes home the assignments change. I highly doubt it was a coincidence that she knew this 30 seconds after asking me to switch! And taking into consideration that my first few shifts and left me split on 2 and 3 halls with more patients than her...it would be nice for her to keep her nose on her side of the hall. How to handle advice is appreciated.
