Unfortunately, I have seen this happen a few times myself. It takes a lot to get that nurse fired, for some reason. When they do finally let her go, she just applies somewhere else and starts the same pattern. I have SEEN it happen!

If all the lazy, thoughtless nurses who didn't do much of their jobs were fired and kept from going from one facility to another, there would be a lot of available positions for good workers and a lot of patients would be getting the care they deserve.

I agree that if people were terminated due to actions, more appreciative nurses would be hired that would provide better care and teamwork.

There are excellent agency nurses that come to our facility that make some of the incumbent hired staff need to bow down in shame. Yet, many of these agency nurses will not be hired due to the economy...sad...simply sad.

:uhoh3: .

i have gone in pts rooms before and family member would either be sleeping, in the bathroom or gone down stairs to get food/snacks and when i return later they would say mom/dad/ didn't get so-in-so. then i would investigate and come to find out they were not there, were sleeping or whatever .

again, some thing is not right with this picture!

this is very true. just because a family member says it doesn't mean it is true. families and patients say all kinds of things. sometimes its just a case of them missing you when you do make an appearance or the pt being forgetful. once in a great while you get a pt with psych issues that likes to start trouble. we had one of those that would be your best friend while you were on and then bad mouth you to the nurse on the next shift. she would tell drs and anybody eles who would listen that you left her in pain or wouldn't take her to the br, didn't give her lunch etc.

or it could be a case of mistaken identity. did she get pts mixed up and give all this ladies meds to somebody else?:nono:

Oh man, this kind of stuff steams me. there is no excuse for nurses not to do their jobs and there is especially no excuse for making things up. What a maroon...

I worked with a nurse one night who had been pulled out of L&D to work with us on post-partum. she was mad and pretty much complained and slammed drawers and stomped around all night. She had a patient who was going to be C-sectined in the morning. I don't know whether she checked on the girl or not, but she charted "7am--pt up, performing self-care. Fetal heart tones strong, fetus moving." The only thing was, when L&D came to get the patient AT 6AM, they couldn't get fetal heart tones and the baby was dead! Saddest thing I've ever witnessed. Not only that, but the nurse went back and altered the chart! AAAAAAAARGGH!

OMG that story makes me sick.. I hope that nurse is no longer practicing.
