Was I wrong in what I did? I need some other perspectives. I was working a few days ago and had a conflict with my charge nurse. It was basically about whether to call the doctor about something related to my patient. She saw a blood pressure and freaked (was 180's over 80's), I saw the doctor had noted this in his progress notes just 2 hours prior and ordered some PO meds to be given, which I just had. I tried explaining this, but it was no use and she practically ordered me to call the doc. I was really upset about this because this was MY patient and I thought she had no right to tell me what to do. Or does she? Basically I am wondering that as a staff nurse, do I have to respond and do (within reason of course) what my charge nurse tells me to do regarding my patients? I am really torn about this and could use some feedback. Thanks!
