    Working with a vindictive coworker

    They should leave because they have a manager who hasn't done anything. If someone corrects my documentation, especially regarding medicine, and still has a job I'm gone! There is no corrective action, it's illegal. There is no counseling, it's illegal. I'm still unsure why someone is so uncouth that they changed another nurse's documentation on medication administration. That is no environment I would want to be in as it's not safe, and potentially hazardous to the patients and my livelihood. We're nurses, not FBI agents. Who has time to go to work and be on guard watching another uncouth coworker that should have been fired and management who lacks the common sense to do it?

    What's the point of them crossing out your documentation and lying about a med administration? What's your manager's rationale for going along with it? I wouldn't be watching closely, I'd be leaving.

    What everyone else said: how is it vindictive, what does it have to do with you, and why are you so concerned about what they're doing if you're not the one falsifying documentation? Also, how do you know they're falsifying documentation?

    So the person NEVER seen the doctor and has had MULTIPLE metformin prescriptions written for him BY the nurse? You know this how? Why hasn't he seen the doctor? How long have you been "witnessing" this?

    Everyone is white?

    I get it now. That's not how I perceived it when I read it but thanks for clarifying. We won't ever fully understand racism and I don't think it will ever end. What I do know is many of the things today are predicated on happenings of the past. When some of us try to acknowledge the past we're told to "let it go" and that "you weren't a slave" with many of them saying that not realizing we (non-white people) are oftentimes behind in economics, education, quality of living overall because of the foundations formed due to past misdeeds such as slavery, Rosewood, Black Wall Street, Trail of Tears, etc. I just feel like a lot of people want to dictate how we progress and perceive things while simultaneously dismissing why we're in this predicament in the first place. OK mini rant over. Again, thanks for clearing up what you meant because it did kind of bother me. I now understand where you're coming from. Appreciate it.

    I tried to not reply to this thread because there's a lot of dismissiveness and whataboutism going on. Some people truly don't understand what it's like to face micro and macro aggression on a daily basis, and some don't want to understand. Some simply can't relate or process how it occurs or don't care because they're guilty of it themselves. Fine, whatever. But did you just really make a whole post validating racism? There is nothing to validate racism, nothing! There is no rationale. And to say it's "from a national patriotic position" is pure ignorance. As a Black Native I'm offended. My people were murdered in record numbers on their own land and it's still being stolen, not to mention the broken treaties, and here you are excusing racism with the lie of patriotism. Really? Please just stop.

    Just be professional, period.

    Nope. Your job is to supervise nurses in caring for patients not play top flight security of social media. That's management's job. If they're not trying to hold that conversation or produce a policy on it, then it's not that important. Don't go down that rabbit hole. You have to work with that staff and the last thing you want them to do is resent you because it can make for some long, messy shifts.

    Murder-Suicide of Elderly Couple Worried About Healthcare Bills

    It's a damn shame that people feel they have to resort to this. I'm at a loss for words.

    Nurses Charged in Deaths of 12 Nursing Home Residents

    This is a case of where I would have lost my job instead of my license because I would have sounded the alarms on everybody. If I would have had to call the news to get those patients out of there so be it. Plus, if it was too hot for the patients to the point where they were coding that means it was also too hot for the staff. I'm not working in exhaustive heat.

    $200,000 salary as a RN, it's true

    I don't have a dog in this fight but the key word is eligible. I take that to mean there is still criteria that must be met. I don't see anything about social security numbers (which some noncitizens can obtain with certain criteria) because a noncitizen may still have an identifying number, such as an ITIN, which may be part of the "eligible" criteria. And grants don't have to be paid back which would make it true for citizens or ELIGIBLE noncitizens. That's just my $0.02. Edit: I went back and checked further. Here's what I found: Can I fill out the CADAA if I don’t have a Social Security Number? Yes. Students are not required to have a Social Security Number to submit the CADAA. However, students will need to meet the non-resident exemption requirements under AB 540 to receive state aid. Submit a signed “Non-Resident Exemption” RequestSome schools will refer to this document as an “AB 540 affidavit.” This form states that you meet all the requirements to qualify for a non-resident exemption under AB 540 and, if you are undocumented, that you are in the process of legalizing your immigration status (or will do soas soon as you are eligible to do so).

    Feedback appreciated

    You must have missed the part where the coworker admitted giving the med to the physician and later claimed OP gave the med. The story kept changing and the vial was empty. Somebody got that med and the coworker isn't reliable.
