A surgeon ripped me apart today in front another nurse, a CRNA and a PA. I fully plan to write him up, but now I'm not sure that I should submit it or just keep it in my files at home since I received an apology which I felt was sincere after the case. The incident that prompted the behavior was actually rather minor, but he was particularly irritable today andI think that it was a "straw that broke the camel's back " kind of thing. He is pretty volatile, and does have a reputation for not apologizing, and in fact seemingly forgetting the incident quickly. He has been written up many times before and sent to anger management. So do I give him a pass on this one time? I honestly think he was sincere in his apology.
