Another nurse I took report from recently told me she asked the client and client's family to refrain from complaining about other nurses to her. If they had a complaint, they should take it up with the agency. I told her I felt the same because I'm sure if they are talking about one nurse, they're talking about me too!
I'm thinking of doing this with one of my clients. I'm sick of one nurse at a time being the "favorite" or "hated one" for whatever dumb reason that week. It's ALWAYS something stupid too. I'm positive I'm frequently on the outs as well probably for something I didn't even know I did "wrong".
Arghhh! Just a vent.
