everything's been pretty much covered previously, but just wanted to throw in that at my facility, unless it's for two very specific populations, the ED is not required to call report on any patient it sends up to inpatient units... (not sure if this is true for ICU, but definitely true for med/surg & stepdown)

Wow. That's frightening.

Take it down a few notches, I'm not the one who wrote you up. At my place of employment we do not give bedside report.

But they weren't talking about at your place of employment.... and your comments were not relevant to the discussion at hand. So maybe it's YOUR "notches" that are a bit out of whack here?

If you didn't do anything wrong, I wouldn't worry about it. Anyone can write anyone else up, anytime. What did your manager/supervisor say about this? It doesn't surprise me to hear about the animosity between departments -- I think this is actually quite common in hospitals. You know the saying...Everything is always greener on the other side of the fence...

Good luck to you!

anyone can make a complaint / 'write someone up' or raise an incident, what is most important is what is done with it by your manager and what if anything is recorded regarding the incident in your personnel files.

In all my many years as a nurse working in so many different units, and yes been written up a few times. But the worse writup against me that floored me was a writeup from a ward secretary. Who was given so much authority that it amazed all of the nurses. Well I booked out of that unit STAT!. Still I shake my head thinking about it. A non-professional trying to make a nurse judgement call. But the worse was simply that management was afraid to deal with her as well...Go figure?
