Oh, I am SO SICK of these places blaming us because they are short staffed. It is their responsibility to staff adequetely and that includes planning for emergencies. If nothing else they can get agency staff but they simply don't want to pay for it.

Do not spend another millisecond worrying about it. That idiot it just blowing smoke.

I don't think its open to the public if you are under investigation. When disciplinary action is taken against you (suspension or revoked license) that, I know, is displayed on the BON. You can view a report of actions taken against all nurses in your state, as a public user on the BON web site.

Report you to the Board for quitting your job? Glad you didn't fall for that one. Let them report away, you did nothing wrong by quitting your job. Move on down the road.

1214RN-what is a report of actions? Is after disciplinary action has been taken? Or is is anytime anyone makes a complaint?

If the ED was so concerned about endangering the residents, she would have made sure you were properly oriented. 3 days is not safe.

And should anything come from the Board concerning this (which I doubt will happen), make this the basis of your rebuttal.

I just wanted to point out that it's not uncommon for a LTC facility to schedule one RN to work evening and night shifts. If you are inexperienced, you might want to to work days, when there will be additional RN's scheduled.

In the facility I work, there doesn't have to be an RN in the building, just one to call, and the director is always on call. They like to have an RN assess a patient before being sent to the ER, but it's not mandatory because it's the doctors call anyway.

But I can assure you that many of the LPNs in the facility I work at are quite competent in all areas of nursing, and some of the RN's are not.

Yes, as the only RN in the building, you are in charge, but that doesn't make you the most competent or experienced employee in the building. Just saying.

I know that I was not the most competent or experienced and I never said I was. I was merely just stating the fact that I wasn't comfortable because if anything were to happen it'd be MY license not the LPNs. I also know now it is common for them to only have 1 RN at night but they should have corrected that when I said I didn't want that responsibility and moved me to another shift.

the ed is also full of crap, because it's only a matter of getting an agcy nurse for when they're short-staffed.

They use their per diem nurses there like regular RNs/LPNs. I'm sure none of them wanted to come in.

Have your Doctor put you on a Medical Leave.

That should be easy to do since you're pregnant.:cool:
