Post-its everywhere! - page 3

It's like a bad scene out of the Nanny Diaries. There are four post-it notes on the bathroom door, all reminding me to wash my hands!(!!!) There are six on her bedroom door all stating the... Read More

    If I was on a case with an annoying nurse like that who listed her daily contact # I'd be entering that # for every annoying sweepstakes/telemarketer I could find. Of course people tend not to pull those kinds of things with me often....

    I couldn't believe that one nurse made daily entries to list her personal phone number and tell nurse B to call her and to make snide comments about another nurse. Imagine reading that stuff out loud during a court hearing. And that is why the clients make copies of everything they can get their hands on.
    Makes it frustrating that nursing is *supposed* to be a profession, eh?

    Sometimes you think these nursing schools got their students from the local bars and cat houses.

    When I was orienting with my first case, 2 nurses were having a knock-down drag-out war via the communication log, complete with threats, pages ripped out, and messages about meetings at the office.

    When the nursing supervisor visits, they glance through the comm book when they look at the case field chart. A problem easily fixed.

    Just thought I'd update the situation:

    Heard from the noc nurse that mom thinks one of us (the three nurses on her case) stole - wait for it guys! - trach ties from her. And that some of her DVDs are missing.

    Her DVDs are missing because she doesn't put them back in the case but dumps the disks into a big box. But stealing trach ties? C'mon.

    Noc nurse says she throws out accusations like this every few months. I called the agency to go on the record stating that I did not steal trach ties or DVDs -- but the agency said that she hadn't called to say anything about stealing, so.

    I'm on the fence about asking to move off this case. I think it could get very crazy very fast with this mom -- and I know I lack the experience and backbone to handle any sort of confrontation.
