I was hired for a department, oriented on one shift, and now moved to the shift I was hired for. The staff on this shift are much less professional that the one I oriented on. It feels like a completly different hospital/department. This week a situation happened that I was uncomfortable with. A nurse's attitude and behaviors caused a patient to become aggitated and it escalated way, way, way out of hand. I truly believe that this did not have to happen and wouldn't have if my co-workers behaved in a more professional, less aggressive, less judgemental manner. I did not intervene at the time, as I was the new person and from what I could tell, the only one that disagreed with what was going on. I would love to go to the other shift. I don't know when that will be an option. I can't work like this for long and will be looking for a new job if another shift isn't available for me soon. I don't want to be made miserable for the rest of my time on the current shift. If I report this to my manager and it comes out, I know that it will be obvious that I was the one that reported it. I think I know in my gut that this should not go unreported, I just don't know when.
