I manage a short term/mixed unit with an amazing team for the most part I have one problem nurse who just isn’t meant for this population. I can’t even get into how wrong this nurse is without getting red in the face my primary issue at the moment though, is that when the unit is running short handed she isn’t helping the CNAs. She seems to purposely make things take far longer than they should, will spend time chatting to whoever will listen, will focus on things that’s aren’t the priority etc. I need her to help - bottom line. If I approach her she will say hat she does help, that she is sooooo busy and that it’s just unbelievable how much work there is. Always, always, always has an answer or an excuse. What else can I do? I mean at the end of the day I can’t change her, and I know that - but the patients need better and so do the CNAs I’ve gone to my boss about moving her but even if I do that she will still be on my floor, just not on the same section every time and not as often. she’s been written up so many times I can’t even count; has been educated and re-educated and she will get better for awhile and then it’s back to her old ways. This is one area I’m really not strong in, I could use some (kind) tips or advice.
