    About all you can do is keep a diary of your activities as an attempt to defend yourself.

    I feel for you, kiddo....
    Lisa, I am so sorry for all this! I agree w/the diary idea wholeheartedly. You are too damn good a nurse to take the cr@p lying down. IM me on Yahoo if you need to vent --ANYtime!

    I can relate with the getting in trouble for anything and everything while the golden children have done NOTHING wrong (including med errors and "forgetting" to file certain papers).

    Thanks guys for the encouragement. I need it. You know it makes me so angry first of all that I am the only person that has not been asked about this.
    I realize that it was a mistake, and to me that means that this kid did not get the best of care that day. Not because I did not want to. But I am only one person who feels like somedays I am trying to be 3 and sometimes I mess up. There were no complications to the baby, not so much as a rash.

    And people wonder why nurses are leaving! I found an excellent book on this topic, and encourage everyone. especially administration and management, to read it. Zapping Conflict in the Healthcare Workplace by Dr Judith Briles. I found it refreshing to see, in black and white, all those things I had been trying to tell all my non-nursing friends.
