I have been supplementing my income working as an agency nurse at one of our community hospitals. I have never had a problem with any of the nurses at this facility. A few nights ago I was sent to icc, a unit ive never worked at this facility.
I am a very hard working nurse and will help anyone with anything from changing ivs to changing linens. Well, as soon as i stepped onto this unit, the nurses gave me nothing but the "cold shoulder". They did not talk to me, except one nice nurse. They actually had thier names on the chairs with tape so noone else would sit in them.
Giving report in the am was a nightmare This nurse actually got very agitated because she asked me how my patient got "footdrop" and I told her. She said "YOU dont give me a lecture on footdrop"! I just answered her question briefly and to the point. I thought her head was going to start spinning! What is the deal with this group of nurses? Do they feel that threatened by agency nurses?
