Nope.

"It sounds like Dr. Surgeon's concern would be best discussed with Dr. Hospitalist. I cannot answer for Dr. Hospitalist." [Thank you, good-bye.]

I'm still within my 90 day probation at this facility and was nervous when giving my explanation. I got asked so many things that could be found in the EMR. I made a post recently about how I've been feeling about the profession as of late and even thought of a career change.

I remember a really bad fifedom, shouting match between a surgeon and an Anesthesiologist, and a Nursing Director. I was told what to do, and did it. Then got chewed out by the surgeon, demanding to know who told me to do it. I told the truth. The Nursing Director never forgave me, and fired me a few weeks later.

That's some MAJOR ***. This hospital isn't unionized so it bugs the hell out of me they could fire me for any reason. That's horrible what happened to you!

The propensity to *** can nurses for no reason (both union and non-union)   lies in the never ending greed at the highest level of hospital/ corporate management. Its never about skill, ability, education, attendance, hard work, great work ethic, etc...its about finding ways to NEVER give raises or keep people around long enough to accumulate benes, such as medical, time off, and FMLA. Their only goal is to minimize these costs, which is the driving factor to find any reason or no reason to turn their entire staff over every 90 days. Keep me posted. Another job fired me 1 day before I would collect the $10,000 phony bonus, and the only reason I was given is that "the girls don't like you."

Jesus Christ that's absolutely horrible. It just seems lately it's more and more *** added to do at the places I've been. I'll keep you posted, I'm definitely going to look elsewhere outside the hospital. I have close to three years as an RN with experience in telemetry, post anesthesia and ICU in a pretty sick area. I hope to find an area I'll like eventually.

It was about my 3rd year in nursing when I started accepting the fact that my  choice to go into the nursing field 2nd career was a monumental mistake. I have regretted it all along the way. I have put up/ shut up, gone from job to job, been fired, beaten down, framed for misconduct, humiliated, set up on false allegations, quit, walked off the job mid shift, walked out of an interview, left after a week on the job, dabbled in other short term non-nursing jobs, and lived hand to mouth. It doesn't get better by changing employers. Been there , done that. This is nursing. If you have any other career options, I would look hard at those, then deep six nursing entirely and never look back. Nothing is ever going to change until nurses refuse to work in these toxic environments.

I never falsify charting, ever.

Everyone should think about that issue. There's no way in h I am going to falsify a legal document, commit fraud, or essentially perjure myself because of others' unholy demands. I prioritize as best I can, do as much as I safely can, and will answer for my decisions if necessary.

No one wants to do it, but he tries to do everything, but sometimes can't.  that is when he is asked why didn't he do it.  He tells me how exasperating it is and is worried that someday he may get fired because someone else is willing to pretend to accomplish everything and he doesn't.  It is a heck of a place to be caught in.  I told him to try to find other employment but it isn't available in the area and he has a family to support and kids have roots down, ya know how that goes.  So he is in a bad spot.  So many nurses find themselves pressured into charting things.  That would be a great poll to do I think.

I won't do it either, yet I see and hear both nurses and CNAs getting their arses ripped because all of their assignment check boxes were not checked off that shift, and that is not acceptable....what is not acceptable is the forced falsification of charting that exists in dozens on SNFs . 

This is soooo sad.  All most nurses want to do is take care of people properly.  fighting a system that sets them up for failure.

Don't you know that we have to work on our time management skills? Maybe an in-service will help.

Yes,I think we should go during our work day that should help immensely.

I’m a nurse x 11 years. I have done cardiac, ER, travel, coordinator, and now home health nursing. Yes, it is more important to pay attention to what your paper work says than what you actually do at 100% of the places I’ve worked. And I’ve worked a more facilities than most. Some are more reasonable, but even the best ones still didn’t allow me to get done on time or always have ratios that allowed optimal patient care without me running around like a chicken with my head cut off.  Even now in home health where I am suppose to work 8am to 4:30pm and I only see one person at a time, my people are often to far spread out in terms of mileage or to many to fit in an 8 hour period. And in home health you kind of HAVE TO see your patients before 4:30 or you can’t get MD orders because that’s when MD offices close. So you are left to spend 2-4 hours on a good day doing charting after you get home.....and in a lot of instances not getting paid for it because it is salaried or paid per visit. 

Which is why all those student nurses/nurses who are like, “If you don’t love nursing anymore you should quit. People deserve kind and caring people to be their nurse. It’s a calling and it isn’t for everyone.” are so freaking annoying. I have never really ran across a nurse who hated people, but I have ran across a lot of nurses who hate having a career that mislead them into believing they were going to help people and instead spend more time documenting than providing care.

Used to be able to , but now it has become some kind of monster and I don't know how to stop it.  Patients and nurses deserve real help.

Being a Nurse Practitioner is not much better (these days).  Patients demand certain medications, will not pay co pays, rude and expect us to be their servants.  Complete melt downs in the waiting room.  Of course, not everyone is like this.  However, enough are that I want out.  

Anyone spending $$$ to go to NP school seriously needs to think about it.  EVERYONE wants instant gratification....RIGHT NOW.  

I guess the robots will take over soon enough.
