Coworker causing problems... - page 2

So obviously this person has something against the OP and is going to bring up something with the manager about her if she already mentioned her to the charge nurse when she called in that day.What exactly do you have to handle about this situation...from what I read you wasnt involved in anything that this nurse is upset about or causing trouble over so I think that I would do nothing and not get involved because this situation seems to be between other people and not you.
I would avoid her as much as possible. If she tries to start something with you at work, just calmly say, "I think it is best if we don't discuss things like this here. Maybe we need to go somewhere more private and have a talk to see what I have done to get you so upset. But we really shouldn't be talking about it on the unit."

sounds like she's digging herself a lovely hole.
I wouldn't worry about your name being mentioned. She probably remembers seeing you in the vicinity the day she was reported, and figures you were "in on it". Some people who routinely break the rules and get reported tend to develop an "everyone's out to get me" complex.
Do your job and forget about her. It seems to me SHE is the only one who has anything to worry about.

Have some confidence in your NM. They are aware of her issues and will take her accusations with a grain of salt. If you are called in to account for an incident, just be calm and truthful. They will dismiss her accusations when they compare how professional you are compared to how unstable and unprofessional that she seems. If you are called in to the NM's office, don't be scared. They probably have to do that as a formality whenever someone levels a charge against someone.
As for her previous write ups, you might want to avoid mentioning things like that when you talk with the NM. They might misconstrue your frustration with being a busy body.
Good luck, let us know how it turns out! :spin:
