DISCLAIMER: Only partly intended as sarcastic dark humor!Reading about all the petty, tyrannical, nasty and miserable LTC types (management or vanilla staff) that 'live' to treat others badly, gave me an idea. It will save you countless hours, give you the thrill you seek (writing people up, constantly!), and also help your staff focus more of their time and attention on providing care, rather than spending time worrying about when or even if they are going to be written up or fired!It's really very simple- write everyone up. Every day! You can create a simple check off 'write up' form, listing, I dunno, 200 or even 500 offenses for which a nurse or CNA can be 'written up'. The list can contain anything your twisted mind can think up, from the asinine (serious violation of policy, unspecified), to even the actual serious: striking a patient. Other examples I've seen people in here 'written up' for- bad attitude, too happy, calls in when sick, does not call in when sick, makes too many med errors, doesn't make any med errors, the list can be endless. (Here's a good current one: Allowed a patient to use a call light!). Think about it. You can even have the forms preprinted by date, and run one off with the name of every employee on them. Then ALL you have to do is check a box next to the offense. Also, at the bottom, you can have boxes to check off, say, 'reported to BON', 'police notified', and other additional actions to help keep your staff in line, walking on eggshells, scared for their job, etc. Delightful, you'll finally feel!! Better than the psych meds that you PROBABLY should be on. Walk around every day on your rounds (if you're the type that actually makes rounds?), and pass out the 'write up's' to have them signed. What a simple solution to all the time spent wondering WHO to write up next, and WHEN?Also, for more fun, and to keep your staff even more miserable, and the place more dysfunctional? Terminate somebody once a month or so, at random. The reason? EASY!- you've received too many write ups!?To clarify how it saves the staff time? They would know a write up is coming, so they wouldn't spend time wondering, like I said before. They could use that time to take care of the patients.You people know who you are. I just gave you pause to reflect on your evil ways- do yourself a favor, and try to become a human being. What goes around, really does COME around.*It's so gross to see so many people treated so badly in LTC, it it were not serious, I'd have to laugh.
