    Thing is I am a traveler in this Unit. I have no clue why it is taking a while to get rid of her. The Manager is aware, and I don't get why exactly this has gone on... thankfully the charge is also aware, and tries to place ehr now in Urgent care....

    I swear I am not trying to rub it in. Most of us die hard Sox fans are still displaying our spirit here in Chicago. We have been treated like second class citizens in our own city for a very very long time. We are still in shock. I can't describe it but I hope you all get to experience this someday.

    You being a traveller changes things a little. While you have more clout than an agency nurse would you are still a visitor. If you start making waves the powers that be may turn their sites on you. In this situation I would speak personally with the nurse manager about your feelings. Let us know what happens.

    I the place I have worked this gal would be gone in a heart beat. Especially since she is agency. All it takes is one phone call.

    Aparently this hospital is desperate for nurses so much so that they will accept any warm body with a license. You can always contact the state board of nursing. It does not have to be the employer who does this. Just document everything.

    I agree with most of the posts. Just tell her to stay out of your rooms point blank. Timothy, Did you acutally say that you Know everything? lol
