  1. No, you can't be a RN right now. You need to concentrate on your health first. Pls see a good neuro. I also agree with the above to stop driving before you kill yourself or someone else. I'll be praying for you. Don't give up on your dream but do put...
  2. Do I have to give my job information about my court hearing?

    She did give them enough notice to get the day off and it's shameful they didn't just comply. I wouldn't submit a thing and I wouldn't have shared you had a court date either but consider that a lesson learned for next time.
  3. Does your facility do this?

    What they are suggesting is illegal. You are to be paid for all the time you work. If they don't you call the Dept of Labor and report them. It is taken seriously by them. Don't let them get away with taking advantage of you and behaving in an unethi...
  4. Privacy rules for reproductive history

    The doctor clearly forgot their earlier conversation and I'm really sorry to read that. Shame that her private info wasn't kept that way. I do always tell people if you want to keep your private health info private it is wise to leave people out of t...
  5. Terminated illegally I believe

    Typically when terminated your employment ends immediately. There is no notice. Employees often give notice to their employer and not the other way around. Scummy as the situation is with the non-compete that part is legal. I have signed them in the ...
  6. Bitter dried up nurses that need to RETIRE

    Be very careful that in your quest to provide good customer service you don't provide bad patient care. That can and does happen. The customer isn't always right when they are the patient and you need to be mindful of that. Something that could make ...
  7. Salary on offer letter different than verbal offer

    They made a written offer of $32 and that's what he signed. That's now the written and binding contract.
  8. I'd put it at a 10/10. It sounds like in your case the person should have failed. If they put people through that struggle that defeats the whole purpose.
  9. My friend was fired - Was she wrong?

    Yes, she was wrong. It is an offense that is serious enough that it could lead to a firing. Did it have to? Not necessarily. They could have written her up or suspended her. I would like to know how anyone even found out. The RN shouldn't have asked ...
  10. Patient rights v. Clinical instructor?

    Your instructor is dead wrong here. If they say no and you proceed to touch them that is legal battery. They could press charges. You educate, document refusal, and move on. On a side note you don't bathe a patient that can bathe themselves. You can ...
  11. So Sick of Pushy Patients and Verbal Abuse

    It pretty much sums up all the is wrong with our system in so many hospitals. They wouldn't have gotten the milkshake in mine. The surgeons would have said they can sign out AMA and have their milkshake or stay and be treated. Period. We are a much m...
  12. Patient complaint filed

    I'm really sorry. What did they actually fire you for? Did you have any disciplinary action against you in the past? Did they put your dismissal in writing and give cause for the firing?
  13. Just to echo so many others in this thread pls let the woman hold her husband. The man is dying. Let her enjoy the end of his life as much as she can. Let her be in peace and find some closure. She needs that.
  14. My horrible hospital stay. What would you do?

    Call your surgeon RIGHT NOW. Always listen to your instincts. It does sound like an infection and you would know. Pls give them a ring and see what they say. You can deal with the bad stay at a later time. Get well first.
  15. As far as the taping goes get Risk Management/Legal Dept involved ASAP. They need to be notified immediately. Thhey will advise you how to prceed or take over. Thy are looking to sue down the line. It is wise that none of you provide care alone. DOCU...
