I need help on how to deal with a DON who keeps getting me confused with other nurses, or just outright blames me for something that happened on the shift before me.
I work in long-term care on the night shift. We are a new facility with 6 patients. My DON keeps getting me confused with other nurses and calls me at home, leaving terrible, nasty messages. I'm really tired of calling her back, her realizing it's me and then trying to backtrack. She blamed me for the med cart keys getting locked up in the med cart. That was the other Karen. She blamed me for another nurse calling the physician concerning a patient with a 100.9 temp and getting an order for a CBC and urinalysis. That was the evening nurse. I turned in the midnight census and because she couldn't find it, she discusses it with the evening nurse instead of asking me directly where I had placed the form.
This is really getting old. I don't see the other nurses going through this stress. What is this DON going to do when we get 120 patients in this facility if she can't keep track of just a few nurses?
Please help me!
