just venting. We have a unit secretary who has decided she is queen bee of our ER. Lately she has been writing up the staff right and left! Especially nurses and for stupid shyt, ie; didn't answer call light, didn't log off chart propper, in fact she ripped one of the new ER docs a new one cause he didn't have time to finish up his documentation in a suitable time for her
Seems like every time she complains, we find a new "nasty note" from the NM posted somewhere that we are now to do this or that or NEVER EVER to blah blah blah!...Got ripped at the last staff meeting cause of her allegations. Sorry guys, but l think it is just crap that the NM lets this secretary police the ER, l mean isn't that HER job? Unfortunately, the secretary is friends with some of the family members of the NM...yeah, l bet you saw that one coming.
So far l have managed to escape her wicked poisen pen, and l am just too busy to try to get poop on her, like that would do any good, right? So thanks for listening, and any advice is welcome. Fireball

A unit clerk writing up docs...get real. There is no way that would be tolerated in our ED; of course, no one would ever dream of doing it.
I agree with the other poster who said she can't be getting her work done if she is spending all that time policing others...if she is, then she doesn't have enough to do. Very passive-aggressive mgmt., IMO.
