    Demerol 75 mg was given IV instead of IM. Fired!!!

    First I was denied because I was not monetary eligeble. In April I became eligeble, but denied because separation issue with employer due to misconduct. I hope that med error is not a misconduct. I didnot miss any day of work, never being late. I worked so hard, why is insurance not available to working people in this country?

    of course, i have remorse and i cry. i would never guess that any nurse who made an error did not do the same. people are so harsh judging without having enough information. my question was about misconduct, but i didn't deliver it properly. i am from foreign country, trying to catch my american dream - job, please forgive me for all my mistakes. i didn't mean to do that. i am not asking for welfare, i just want unemployment insurance which i deserved working hard, till i find a new job. my hearing date will be on may 5. my friend consulted with online lawyer. he said that employer has to prove misconduct. i know that medication variance reporting must be done with med. error. i was not offered one. just simply fired. thank you for your support.

    In my hospital doctors write orders for demerol all the time, but mostly given IV. This particular doctor liked Demerol IM and he wrote it very unclear, I missed the route there, and then when taking it from omni cell. It is just stress and being sick. My manager told me: "YOU CANNOT BE SICK DURING SNOW STORM" I would be fired any way for not being able to drive to work, or taking sick day or for something else. When she is looking to fire she always finds it. This unit is notoriously famous about nurses leave or fired. That was not a good place to start a nursing career. Thank you for your post

    Thank you. I think nursing culture is cruel. No support, no compassion. That's what I encountered at my work. They eat new nurses. In this hospital LPNs hate RNs, because I just came from school and make $2 more.
  5. WELCOME TO HELL!!! Hard to explain what nursing schools are. You need to experience it yourself. I was told that after I finish I will never regret. But finding a first job is hard, because everyone wants experienced nurse and you are grad. On a job someone wants to report you for everything, just because you are new and they are experienced. Real senior nurses who share experience are very rare. Nursing culture is unfriendly because people work under enormous amount of stress, fearful to loose license. My advice: try to keep your job while at school. It will lower your grades and makes you very tired and unhappy. But you will have chance to survive nursing school

    yes. I do accept I did make an error. First time incident, I moved on, I payed my move twice. Thank you for your reply.
  7. Demerol 75 mg was given IV instead of IM. Fired!!! Is it a misconduct? I was terminated and denied unemployment insurance. Patient was not harmed. I started practicing under my RN license of Oklahoma 7 month ago. This was my first nursing job and I relocated for it (paid my relocation twice) from Texas to OK and back, when lost the job. The real reason for termination was a snow storm and I could not drive to work from the place I lived. I called the emergency truck to pick me up. My manager was furious and called me to her office few times for another reason. I was so fearful that she is going to fire me and I made an error. The time I found about it was next day in Human Resources, when I was fired. No variance report, no calling doctor for back IV order, no disciplinary, just simply terminated for misconduct. Word MISCONDUCT bothering me. This is just a human error, which happens every day in hospitals!!! This was a personal issue not a misconduct. So, I filed the appeal for hearing with employer. At least my OK license is still displayed current online. It is so hard to find an employment with only 7 months of experience! I believe that my 7 months of hard work 84 hours per pay period allow me to be qualified for unemployment insurance. I am just a human who wants to work, I am not asking for welfare. Please, advise me what to do. If anyone was in similar situation. Thank you!

    RN salary in Tulsa, I am confused!

    I am a graduate nurse in Dallas looking for Internship in Texas or Oklahoma. The Baylor here pays only 21.50 compare to the Parkland which can be $ 23.50. So, all hospitals pay close to that range $ 21. The problem for me is how to get into the health care system and get any graduate nurse position in any hospital. We have huge amount of grads hanging around without jobs and State of TX released huge amount of money to expand nursing schools. The condition will be worse in the future. Luba 9722394467 I would like to talk to you.:)
