    I've had a situation similiar to this. We had a nurse on our icu floor who was very unstable. She would scream profanity at co-workers and pts. at different times. Very unpredictable and we just knew she was going to snap anytime. We wrote her up for every foul word and action. We all addressed this problem with mgmt over and over. It took about a year to finally get her terminated. We were all relieved. She was a walking time-bomb and we never knew where the anger would be directed. So hang in there and write up everything she does. It may take a while but if you all stick together it'll happen. Also if you come across a family member or pt. not satisfied with her care, hand them a evaluation card if your facility has these. Sometimes mgmt will listen to pts. and families over staff complaints. just some ideas. Good Luck
