This is sick, I just totally blew a great mood over this, I hate this happened to you guys! I got DNR'd (Do Not Return)'d over someone's clerical error (who meant to DNR someone on a line above me), and have a similar story- it took 4 months, and over 40 calls to straighten out the error.
I was laying in bed when my recruiter called, I was half-way through my 4th extension of 6 weeks. She said, "[My Name], they have terminated your contract, is there any reason this would happen?"
Me: "No, I just got off 30 minutes ago, and the staffer/bed control operator said, "see you tonight." I was supposed to be off."
"Can I call them?" Recruiter, (who had known me and my track record for 4 years) No, We will figure out what is going on in the morning, but for now, pack-up, there's nothing else to do on this current assignment anyway."
I was heart broken! I recieved a call the next am after being up all night panicking, and my agency said that they stated I "practiced out of their policy and procedure." (although this wasn't even me). My floor didn't call me when I was absent the next day- because they got a copy of the work order stop-DNR. When I found out they had reported those words against me, I got on it. I called and called, and called- until I got the manager who worked that night, and she said simply, something went wrong, it wasn't you who was DNR'd. It took another week to straighten out the mess.
A week without pay, that I had to pay my hotel room costs, and waited under suspicion from people at my agency. I got the call that everything had been cleared, and I could begin work the next morning at 6:45 AM, now 854 miles from the hospital, without a Hotel, back home. I was soooooooooooo angered! I never got the FIRST apology, save my agency, and my awesome recruiter-but it was ME who got to the bottom of what in the world happened that night in Staffing.
The sickest part of the whole ordeal was that it let the Nurse in question who was diverting ER Narcotics in large quanities, who tested positive for 3 different narcotics on a urine drug screen for suspicion work several days over the original incident, while I took the consequences of her actions. By the way, after the reason reached the agency, I was drug tested 3 times, Lol while she practiced all because someone highlighted the wrong line on the contract list!
It's a Jungle Out There!
