Get out of there before they really get you in trouble and you lose your license. I notice you said that there was a high turnover rate, so get on out on your own terms and not because you were fired or worse.

Hell nurses,

Thank you all so much for your help. It was needed as I felt so stuck especially being new to nursing. I ended up resigning from that location. It was very overwhelming and not a healthy place to be in. One of those jobs where you just show up although you much rather not walk in.

I didn’t work this hard in school to not enjoy what I do based on staff and the environment. I know not every environment is great but I have found a better place. One with staff that actually teaches me, answers all of my questions , have extensive training. I really feel welcomed here.

I wish I would’ve passed on That first offer That gave me such a bad experience as a new grad but now I truly appreciate where I’m at.

Thank you all once again.

Just a s a side note a Physician's note explaining an illness is no guarantee that you won't have disciplinary action for calling off from work. There are legal precedents that actually protect employer's in this manner. You have to know what the policies are for the company you work for.

I’m now in another situation at this job, i did a med error onFriday and on the next shift the patient had to be sent to hospital. When I returned to work Saturday morning the noc shift asked me questions and that’s when I realized i made the med error. I acknowledge my wrong to the supervisor and asked her what to do far as documentation (because I’ve never been in this situation before)she said she will talk with Assistant Director of nursing. so i worked Saturday morning and in the evening after my shift the job called and said that I am suspended for three days and then in the same conversation she said I’m suspended until further notice but to come on Monday to speak with the Director of nursing. I was surprised she suspended me over the phone and then asked for a meeting after. This sound backwards to me. As much as I have already felt targeted this med error is the icing on the cake for them to fire me before quitting. I have three interviews this upcoming week and I was waiting to officially land a new job. I almost don’t want to go to the meeting because I feel they will fire me, but I have to document the med error since the supervisor didn’t tell me which documents To complete. What are your thoughts?

Usually, every facility has a medication error report. And maybe some kind of incident report.

If all goes well, you'll get another job before they fire you. Just a bit of advice when applying for new work. Don't ever mention how horrible they were and how unfair, even if it's true. You will need to say something else as a reason for leaving because no one will hire you.

Thank you all for your support.

I’ve been contacting the old job to get all the write ups no response. I recently went to the facility and the higher up nurses (D.O.N, ADON and others) were fired or quit not to long after I left the company in December ,and when I went back the new managers tried to rehire me.
I passed on the opportunity. I won’t work there no matter who is in charge. Just went to have a copy of documents.

Chances are high you can rest assured those write-ups won’t go anywhere or affect you. They might be accessible if requested in a legal proceeding were you to start a lawsuit, but your best interests are now served by making certain your new job works out. Congratulations on getting away from there without being terminated. FWIW, in the future make certain you get your copy of documents when they are created.

Yes I’m already suspended before talking to the director. Do you think that I should attend the meeting on Monday? Or just be done with this place.

Do not go to that meeting. They most likely plan to fire you for cause. Best to write up a letter of resignation and either mail it and your ID by same day registered mail or stop in and hand it to an RN, Ward Clark or someone else who can’t fire you and leave immediately! Do not stay to talk with anyone from management.

I’m new to this site and still don’t know how to respond to certain members, but I have 2 questions:

1. Where's that precedent where your employer can refuse to honor your doctor’s notice?

2. Any person has the right to access and have in their possession a copy of any any document that bears their signature, unless it’s someone else’s medical records. But if we are talking about disciplinary notes - no attorneys are needed. Those papers must always be 2 - one for the employer and one for the employee. If only 1 is given, the employee can make his/her own copy or take a picture of it.

Hi everyone,

I am a new LVN and have currently been working at my job for a couple of months now. I had five days of training which I told them I needed more training, the scheduler told me that he “believed in me” so I was forced onto the floor in my opinion due to short staffing. Very high turn over rate at this job.

So I've been written up 8 times in the month of November, sometimes twice in one day sometimes two days in a row. I explained to the supervisor that I was never taught this and I should not be written up for something that I was never taught. She preceded to write me up..

I was also written up for calling out of work when I caught a flu and had an excused doctor note the supervisor said that it would be easy to replace me if I don’t want to work there”.

I am very frustrated because I didn’t come this far to not love what I am so passionate about. I’ve been yelled at by the director of nursing for asking for help. I feel like I am being targeted.

Who should I talk to about this? What should I do?

Please help me and thank you so much

That sounds like extremely harsh treatment. Either they want you to leave, or they're just completely unreasonable. Either way, this is not a situation that can be salvaged. Hit the road.

Bingo!
