    What do you do with your wedding ring?

    Leave them at home.

    Bullying :Living well is the best revenge

    Interesting the people on this site, one in particular, that don't recognize the behavior as bullying, they downright deny that it exists.
  3. Maybe I'm missing something but if the position requires rotating shifts why would they want to hire someone that can't or won't rotate?

    Silly rant, but people keep steeling my tissues

    Good idea! Maybe she should write "this was STOLEN from the nurse".

    Jokes on me....?

    Who's calling it a prank or a joke? Sounds more like an act of sabotage.

    Should I quit? Idk what to do!

    Why not switch, full time at the second job and contingent at the critical care job, best of both.

    Should I quit? Idk what to do!

    State retirement, better insurance, great staffing (less stress) vs shorter drive, more money, bad management, short staffing (more stress). May have more money in the future with state retirement, better insurance. Money isn't everything, neither is a shorter drive.
  8. Almost everyone is focused on the cup of coffee and that is not what the OP is concerned about. This is: quote from NurseMom2016 " THIS is the part I am questioning myself about-I told him "no sir, I have already removed everything and you have signed the paper to leave. The cab is on its way to pick you up." He did leave, and had to have assistance from the tech and officer to transfer from a wheelchair to the cab. I had a hard time leaving some of the things he said to/about me at work that day. (I.e. You fata**, you shouldn't be a nurse, f***ing dumb nurse, I could go on). Remember, this man was as oriented as he could be, and was able to hold a calm conversation with others during this time. Probably some undiagnosed psych issues or something. I have never had anyone speak so poorly about me. So, yes I am glad he left within the first 2 hours of my shift, BUT my conscience keeps hanging on three things: one, that he wasn't able to walk on his own and we just sent him on his way. Two, that the foley was there for retention and it was removed almost immediately before he left. And three, that in the end I kind of told him he had to leave (I think he probably would have anyways). Thank you if you have read this whole thing, I tried to condense as much as I could! Let me know what you think, if something could have been handled differently, etc. "
  9. Edit from beyond the grave?
  10. I would be concerned about liability if he said he wanted to stay and then something happened to him after he left. I would have contacted the doctor and see what she had to say about it. CYA.
  11. I was never taught that, about being arrested. I'm curious too, what language did she use to provoke agitation. Even if she did, he should have had and kept himself under control.
  12. No, that's not the case, I have no idea where they came from.
  13. Why are those question marks in a diamond at the end of my post?
  14. I'd like to see what was redacted. So they were in violation of policy. Now what, a slap on the wrist? í ½í¹ƒ

    Mean Nurses

    I know what you're talking about. Had that experience at an HCA hospital that I was going to. (like snarling wolves) I finally refused to go there and found somewhere else to work. I later heard (at the new place) that nurses at the HCA hospital would scream at each other. Leaving is probably not an option for you. I don't have anything useful to offer, but I can certainly empathize.

    Dealing With Passive Aggression

    I'd completely ignore it. She's trying to get a rise out of you, don't give her the satisfaction. Just give her a laugh.
