    There is usually a bit of this everywhere. And this behavior performed by the managers perpetuate these arses.

    What really fries me is when it's not the VIP making such a big deal over themselves, but admin does. We had one not too long ago who was a very nice patient with a very nice family, and probably had no idea this big a deal was being made over them, but admin/mgmt was up 'checking out the room' to make sure it met standards. Barf.

    They never do that when it's someone from the homeless shelter. Hmmm.

    I feel for you-I know of a situation in a LTC facility in my area where a resident's wife is always complaining about her husband's care. The worst part is, she is not only reports the real mistakes, but she also twists the truth to try to get people suspended or fired. The management takes her at her word, without even asking the staffperson if the claims are true.
    There's at least one of these in every facility, I swear. We have one on my floor who has been hell on wheels ever since her husband was admitted---I've seen aides come out of that room in tears more times than I can count. So far, I've been able to stay on her good side, but I know she is as fickle as they come and that could change at any time. Thankfully, I am not easily intimidated and thus I refuse to pander........but I do keep her informed and consult w/ her whenever I feel a change is needed in his treatment program. Maybe that's considered "kissing up", but it's nothing more and nothing less than I would want if the situation were reversed and it were MY husband in that bed.

    and, i'm certain you keep ALL involved family members for ALL your pts/residents, updated with consulting prn.
    so you're surely not showing any sort of partiality.

    I love that the powers-that-be added more paperwork to the admissions packet.
