So-I left the area (visitors,dietary and social services witnessed this episode) I did go back and try to stand up for myself but the situation escalated so -again-I walked away...And the next day The Wizard and her little monkey relieved me from my charge duty.....Am I crying? No.....Not one mistake was made by me or omission of required paperwork or anything of that nature....which I pointed out and while in their cave I said my piece-very well,I might add...and am happy to take the consequences....It was worth it...Now I am prn (again-I preferred it and did not want this unit in the first place) I also went to human resources-nothing has been documented in my file.....but my concerns are documented now....Seems TPTB associate a nurse developing a trusting relationship with a family and resident as getting too emotionally involved and being un-professional...Funny-with my almost 20 yrs of experince that has not been a problem at any other facility -LTC or acute care...Even so-the pros far out-weigh the cons at this time for me (still great staffing-the residents are getting the care from the aides that they deserve) We all have to suck it up sometimes and develope our protective camo.....and when the dust settled I did apologize for my behavior and stated my expectation to be treated fairly in the future....I am at peace.-and feel that I know what a true professional is and am going to be that nurse.......Competent-compassionate and respectful of all.......
