I dread patients who require manual bp's, I am not that confident with a sphigometer and usually end up doing it twice just to be sure.
Guess I haven't been a (student) nurse long enough!
It's a horrid situation when you're left like that. I don't pretend to know what the solution is; I've just been on both sides of the 'fence', if you will.
There is no room for hatred on a nursing unit. And no sane NM would tolerate such behavior.
My previous unit, before the insane ED where I work now, was positively toxic. Rotten to the core with favoritism. I received a form letter from the CEO saying how much he valued nurses and if I ever wanted to seek employement at the hospital group again I'd be welcome with open arms, blah blah blah.
Well, I wrote back a one page email rebuttal quoting his letter and my experiences on th floor. Can't wait to see what happens. But what most likely will happen is nothing. What does he care if one more disgruntled nurse leaves? It happens every day!
Best of luck to you. I don't have any words of encouragement or any solutions. This seems to be a world-wide problem. What a shame. We have the potential to use our power for good, and instead...we tear each other up with it.
I hope all goes well for you. (((()))))
So we're in agreement then? We'll all be nice, say thanks, great job! And be an example to our coworkers!
There is no real solution to this and having been the recent victim of such an individual I can but only sympathise. Unfortunately, bullying behaviour is rife in the health arena.
Obviously this will not cure MRSA but will be used by doctors and nurses as an antiseptic cream prior to handling patients. At the moment there is a huge campaign in hospitals here about handwashing. BTW the Sun is the best selling newspaper in the UK (a tabloid).
Be glad to be of help, I am a registered nurse in a busy East Midlands teaching hospital specialising in acute general and vascular surgery
