If you cannot stay awake all night, perhaps you should switch to day shift. Even when I was in class all day I managed to stay up all night.
PLEASE be ready for report at 7am. Have your stuff put away and your clip board ready by then, and be done praying for a good day. I'm all for praying to your higher power, but not when it's already 0720 and I've waited while you did a bunch of other getting-ready things that should've already been done and answered a call from your out of state family. I'd get it if it were unusual and might be an emergency, but this is a daily occurence. Have them call to wish you a great day earlier!
Where did you learn how to spell? We all make typos, but it's ANEMIA, not eneamia, and IRRIGATE, not igrigate.
Just because you have a BSN And I have an ADN doesn't make you a better new grad nurse than I am. We still had the same clinicals, at the same hospitals, on the same units. But if you want to look down your nose at me, perhaps I should remind you my school has a 94% pass rate, and yours is 80%, and your school almost lost their accreditation? But why would I? We both graduated and passed the same nclex!
Don't treat the LPN's like they are glorified CNA's and sending them to do things you think you are above. It is so disrespectful. They can do almost everything we can as RNs, and many are using it as a bridge and are in RN programs in this area because it is the only way to get into school around here. I was never an LPN, but I have worked with plenty who were just as good if not better than some of the RNs I worked with!
PLEASE stop leaving orders for the next shift. The order was written at noon, or two, or whatever, plenty of time to have done it. Blood doesn't always need to be saved for night shift. Neither does giving an enema that was timed for 10AM. There are a lot of us who hate following you, because you do this on every patient!
I really do love the group I normally work with, but we all know there are a few bad apples! It's been that way at every job in every industry I have worked in, and it really is cathartic to vent!
