    RN left alone

    That's unsafe and I doubt that's legal.

    Questionable actions that make you go hmm?

    I went to a dentist one time with an abcessed tooth that he pulled and I asked about an antibiotic and he told me that since I work in a hospital I can have someone give me some there. Looked at me like I had 2 heads when I told him that he had to be the one to order the antibiotic and that I could not just get meds from the hospital. Never went back to him and found another dentist. I was a new nurse in the early 80s and I saw another nurse go to spike an IV bag and dropped the end on the floor that she was going to spike the bag with and she thought she could just clean it off with alcohol and use it.

    Give 'Em Enough Rope

    When I worked in the hospital one this one unit we would get physician orders sent to us the day before patients were admitted to the unit and a unit secretary was hiding the orders periodically and would do this to certain nurses she didn't like. She also did other things to create problems but nothing could be proved until a security camera was installed and she was caught redhanded. She was also caught in various lies by physicians. She finally got fired.

    Any way you could stay over and work a few hours

    I stayed over way too many times and got tired of being taken advantage of and started saying no I can't. Too many 12 hour shifts ended up 16 hours shifts. Nope. Can't do it.

    Sign a consent without witnessing actual signature

    When I worked in the hospital the physicians were not allowed to witness their signature and would often come out of a room and expect me to sign it. I would not sign it till the physician walked back in the room with me and had the patient verify that everything was explained and this was their signature. One time one got a phone consent and did not have anyone listen in to witness and asked me to sign it afterward. I made him call the person back with me listening as witness. Never put your job on the line.

    Peer to Peer Review/Feedback

    I agree, it's definitely a bad idea. We did peer reviews when I worked in the hospital and there sure was a lot of pettiness. Definitely worsened the morale that was already low.

    When they're SO sure they're right...

    A coworker of mine had a patient who was ordered a stat aspirin, she was going to give Tylenol because it was the same milligram!

    Pleurx drains

    She should also premedicate with pain medication if she has any prior to draining her and do it slowly.
