I am soo annoyed! This is the second time this one nurse has done this. If I tell her I don't know something off the top of my head, (like what meds the pt is on) she will get up in the middle of report and say " I am going to go check the chart"...and then she will go and get up and check the chart. Even after I said I can look it up in the computer. What the
? So I go over after her and tell her that I have the information on the computer...she says not to worry about it....then I say well are we done then?...and she says yes... She keeps doing these type of weird passive aggressive things like this and pretends it is not a big deal. But then, the next day I will find out that that is all she could talk about for the rest of the night.

Ummm yes you can keep giving the handover when they interrupt. When i worked on the ward and the nurses tried to talk over me, i'd speak loudly and just keep giving the handover until they got the message. If they fail to listen and take in the information about the patient then that is their responsibility not yours. One nurse tried to report me but i told the manager that she had her back to me gossiping with another nurse while i handed over and she copped it not me. And if they need to ask something that's fine, just not interrupting with gossip about the patient and stuff that's not important. And if they can't stop talking and listen to me, well read my documentation in the case notes then.....
