  1. I gather that you just want to vent and that is why you are asking here. Employment law varies from state to state. If you think that you have a legit complaint, then go to the body that governs workplace issues in your state. If you think that th...
  2. What to do if I like someone at work?

    Ask her out for coffee and see how things go. If she says give you a reason why she can't do it, tell her that it is an open invitation and to just let you know if/when she is interested. Since she is a colleague, you probably shouldn't ask a secon...
  3. Leaving Bedside

    My hospital takes new grads in the ICU. They have a 6 week preceptorship which approx 1/2 of the candidates fail. It is a STEEP learning curve! When I entered the ICU over 20 years ago I had 2 years of experience in Oncology. I would have been be...
  4. Criminal Charges No Lawyer

    Good luck and God bless! I can't imagine how hard this must be for you and your family.
  5. Leaving Bedside

    I'm in the same boat in that I am bright enough to work in the ICU, but I don't have the temperament. When my patients do well I am happy. When they take a turn for the worst, I keep asking if there was something that I could have done. This leave...
  6. Discrimination Allegations

    I wonder what a lawyer would say about those the false statement in the accusation. Insisting that the security officer must be a man? "I'll never be your beast of burden. My back is broad, but it's a hurtin." Us sis-males do have more t...
  7. Intravenous Catheter Selection and Why it Matters

    We use the BD Nexiva in our Cardiac Stress Testing department and it is wonderful! The catheters are sturdier which assists with canulation. They were around $6.00 last time that I looked which is approx 5x more espensive than what the rest of the ...
  8. Weird Performance Evaluation

    I can't seem to find the edit button to add this to my previous post. These tactics are and excuse to low ball raises. They are also a defense against a wrongful termination lawsuit if they get rid of someone. There are times in our nursin...

    The beatings will continue until morale improves!
  10. BON Reprimand For Being Late To Work 3x

    Being late isn't the issue with the BON it was back timing her documentation to before he/she had actually arrived on the unit. For example, documenting an assessment at 0700 that was not actually done until 0830.
  11. Someone will hire you. Nurses are in high demand. I don't think that anyone will hold it against you that you took a gap year to take care of a sick family member.
  12. I think that this has already been said, but it bears repeating. The DON gets paid to put up with this stuff. Next time just forward it up the chain of command and let them deal with it. I think that you are fine. You made a mistake. You've been...
  13. Fired. How To Get Over It.

    After initial competencies in orientation they just get pencil whipped each year. Maybe not completely pencil whipped,but most of the competencies are things that we at least once or twice a week if not daily. No one has every actually come to look...
  14. Fired. How To Get Over It.

    That employer was looking for a reason to get rid of you. I can think of no other logical reason for them being so petty. Reporting you to the BON, that was ridiculous! Was this a discrimination issue? Where there other nurses who had not complet...
  15. Switched Jobs and Made A Huge Mistake....

    Good to hear that you are out of that situation. It is too bad that the PICC nurse job didn't work out, but 40% more money is difficult to agrue with.
