    BACK!!!

    Thank you so much for returning and posting. I had similar things happen to me. Nurses looking for stuff and writing lists for the manager to wright up. Does happen, entails loss of job. Not nice. I have forgiven the meanies; I must move on! No one reported me to the BON, thank goodness. Sorry to hear of your maltreatment by others. We need to support one another not beat each other up!

    I'm sure you regret not going to the meet and greet meeting with your DON. I mean, if you had started out pandering to the power monger, perhaps you wouldn't have had to suffer pain and trauma. Perhaps you could have requested assistance on the floor by an aide or RN to cover your patients while you attended the meeting. I know, catch 22 is always terrible to contemplate.

    The problem was that ALL the rest of the staff, CNA's and Nurses did leave thier units to go. I was the one who stayed. I don't regret not going, I did what was best for my patients. I believe I made the best decision by staying, perhaps not for me, but for the 48 patients in my unit who would have been left alone for the 30 minutes the meeting lasted. And being the stubborn person I am, I would do it again. I have the trust of the families that I will do my best for thier ill family member. It is a trust I hold sacred. I felt that by leaving my unit unattended I was abandoning my patients. What could have happened during that time I would have seen as my fault. I know, I can't do everything, but what I can do I do to the best of my abilities.
