    I'm so sorry this is happening to you. This actually happens where I work too. Luckily, I am not involved on either side. We do have one nurse that this is done to. I feel that the nurses who do it are intimidated by her because she is a much more intelligent person in general and a WAY more skilled nurse than they are. I know that she went to the Manager and told her that if a stop was not put to it, she would file a harrassment grievence. Our facility as a harrassment policy that is taken so seriously it is mailed to our homes every year. They were spoken to and believe it has calmed down. There is still always an undertone of it, though. Speak to your manager and find out what your facility's policy is, they probably have one. If nothing changes, I would get out of there. It is not healthy to be in that kind of situation.:icon_hug:

    Life's too short to deal with that kind of sh$$. If you are able, I'd look elsewhere for employment, maybe another unit?

    I live in a rural town, only one Base Hospital. Details of situation are in another thread I posted in the Australian Nursing Forum

    This is a very genuine cry for help.

    Hey! Talk to administrator first thing in the morning! No more practice until she/he knows what's going on in her/his institution! Immediate leave-of-absence!
    Self-care now! There is bigger and better out there for you! Leave the "petty's" in your dust.

    allantiques for me...
    I'm gobbsmacked by your lack of any consideration to my feelings by posting on this thread.
    But because you have only made 7 posts and maybe newer to this I will try not to take it personally.
    Your question is not in my area of expertise, however, you may wish to check out some of the education material available related to the sexuality of adolescents with developmental disabilities. Some of this material also includes considerations with sexual abuse.
    Lets consider this thread to now be null and void.
    I am totally over asking you people for help.

    Sonn, I imagine the previous poster did not know how to start her own thread.

    I answered your post in the Aussie forum.

    I'm just on a quick break at work. I'll read the other thread soon, but I'd like to ask if you could possibly just move. I know it's drastic and I'm not trying to overwhelm you, but it's sometimes the best thing to do if it is at all possible.

    Any thoughts?

    The first thing you need to do is to start establishing a record of these incidences. Record dates, time and nature of incidence on paper....who did/said what, how and where.
    Also, schedule an appt with your Equal Employment Officer.... If anybody physically touches you call 911 immediately and file a police report.
    Don't put up with this!

    I agree with the above guidelines - write everthing down in chronological order and speak to someone, as described above.
