Jason Hiney RN was a relatively new nurse when he was hired at Wrongway Regional Medical Center (WRMC) to work MN weekend option primarily on the adult male psych unit some ten years ago. Jason was in his late 20's, had about a year experience in LTC, and I quickly perceived him to be very intelligent, charming, and one of the funniest people I've ever met.

Jason and I were coworkers/friends, which means that I have no personal relationship with any of my coworkers outside of work, but at work our relationship goes outside of a totally professional one. With Jason and me, for example, he has helped me with some computer and automotive problems and I have helped him with a lock problem and loaned him a little bit of money. Nothing terribly involved, just stuff a couple of chums would do for each other.

Jason quit WRMC a few years ago to work in home health and to be able to spend more quality time with his family. He remained per diem, working  a shift here and there.

Shortly after Jason left WRMC full time, the institution gave phenomenal raises to its nurses based on other facilities' pay rates and I can tell you, my raise was outstanding!

Jason attempted to get hired back to his old weekend option position in order to cash in on the pay raises, but was informed that the weekend option program had ended for the freshly hired nurses. In other words, those of us who were in the weekend option program before would continue, but newly hired or rehired nurses would be scheduled to work every other weekend.

So Jason continued to work in home health, stopped picking up per diem shifts, did not continue his mandatory training at WRMC, and was eventually terminated all together.

WRMC's psych division utilized the medical side's house supervisors for several years on the weekend and MN shifts and they were generally worthless. So WRMC psych division began hiring nurses, both within the facility and from the outside, for their own house supervisors. Jason applied for one of these positions as psych division house supervisor and was hired.

A week back, patient Perry Penguin, who was on a 1:1 status fell on the geriatric psych unit while I was charge. I questioned the tech assigned to watch Perry as to what had happened, assessed Perry, and found no apparent no injury. I contacted the NP and got an order to reduce one of Perry's BP meds.  I contacted the wife and she informed me that two physicians had suggested the fine tremors I had noted while performing an accucheck could be benign tremors or Parkinson's. I contacted Dr. Banjo, the psychiatrist who had put Perry on a 1:1, and he wanted to be sure staff was following a strict 1:1 protocol. I informed the tech who was with Perry what Dr. Banjo had said. I contacted the house supervisor, Jason, informed him, and requested the Final Fall Form that the house sup and nurse need to complete together be generated. I documented the situation in Perry's nurses notes and completed an incident report.

This weekend, my supervisor, Roofelmo, approached me and said the Final Fall Form had not been completed. She had read my nurses note and had asked Jason about it and, according to Roofelmo, he denied that I requested the completion of the form.

I feel like kicking Jason in his Hiney.

Here's a little background on patient Perry Penguin from:

He was a 58 year old ex CNA dementia patient who was admitted on the Saturday MN shift for aggression at the nursing home. Also aggressive in ER, it took Haldol 5, Ativan 2 , Benadryl 50 mg IM and 4 point restraints to control his behavior.

I thought he was a cute little guy and in my journal entry I drew him as an unsteady Perry the Penguin.

The next day he kicked Dr. Banjo, had a fall on MNs while on 1:1, and vomited.

Thank you for another one of your consistently wise, insightful, and caring replies, Daisy.

You said exactly what I was thinking: Jason Hiney RN psych house sup threw me under the bus, but it's all hearsay. I plan to discuss the situation with him at our next meeting, but the bottom line, I objectively charted what took place on a legal document that cannot be challenged.

Roofelmo even said something along the lines of "Jason forgets things sometimes" and he has a reputation for this known to all.

The Final Fall Form is the responsibility of both the nurse and the house sup and I did my part. I don't give a flying fruit basket if that superfluously redundant form gets filled out or not.

The situation was handled prudently, advisements and orders were carried out, the patient received a quality assessment and care, every necessary individual was informed, and objective documentation was generated in both the nurses note and on the incident form. As far as I'm concerned, I did my job.

Roofelmo also mentioned that I could have generated the form myself. Inwardly, I said, "Yeah, but that schmuck Jason still wouldn't have done his stupid job!", but outwardly I smiled and said, "Okay!"

I'm not writing Jason off as a friend and I will go on being professionally civil with him, but I will also cause him to be accountable for his actions forthwith.

Thanks again, Daisy- you're a peach!

Is this the Rockstar from DaveyDo's Comic's Comics, too?

Well, either way there's a Jason who needs to get his act together. He should be accountable for his actions forthwith and henceforth, both. Henceforthwith.

There is no correlation between Jacob Rockstar-RN and Jason Hiney RN, JKL, although I have to admit that you are one of the sharpest saws in the shed!
