    New Nurse, Thinking About Throwing in the Towel

    Getting your nursing license wasn’t a waste of your time. You just don’t like your current job. Narrow down what it is you really hate about your job and you’ll fix this. For me; it’s always unsupportive coworkers (including management) an...

    Write Ups

    It’s not really an urban legend. Most legal departments for big employers prohibit negative references, to avoid lawsuits. So while it’s not illegal, it’s also generally not allowed.

    Refusing to Cover for a Colleague

    I don’t think I would stop covering my coworkers care conferences. A good relationship with someone on the same level as you is so important in any job. And it sounds like this is the person on the same level as you. What if you need someone to ...

    How to spot a bad nurse

    The article is written by a doctor. WOW!? Also it’s completely out of touch with the reality of the profession at present. Many nurses are job hoppers because it’s the only way to survive right now. And many, many nurses are overwhelmed. It’s no...
  5. So sorry you’re going through this. I just want to thank you for all of your hard work.

    Radonda Vaught Trial

    I did say more in my original post. But I’ll add that there is no precedent for a med error being classified as reckless homicide.

    Radonda Vaught Trial

    It doesn’t fit the definition at all. She was working. She wasn’t drag racing, making a tik tok, etc. She was trying to do her job. She was incompetent, not reckless. And it is of no consequence at all whether she is a quality person.

    Radonda Vaught Trial

    It should be not guilty. and if it isn’t, it will add to my reasons of why I should leave nursing. Don’t talk to me about how she’s a bad nurse. I know she’s a bad nurse. It’s not a reason to charge her with homicide.
  9. Hmm. All I know is that prior authorization is a BS thing perpetuated by insurance companies to avoid paying for treatment and that it keeps patients from getting their meds on time or at all, especially vulnerable people like psych patients and...

    Giving Report and IV Access

    You’re not really this mean, are you?

    Med Error

    Good discussion. We should give empathy and education at the same time and both are equally important, because if education is delivered without empathy it doesn’t work. You can’t learn something from someone who hates you and thinks you don’t ...

    Patient Abandonment

    If you were instructed by the charge to leave, and you left, I don’t believe that is patient abandonment. I agree that bullying needs to be reported. Relax about the BON. It’s doubtful they will pursue this, but if they do, deal with it whe...

    Writing “poop” is unprofessional?

    I hope that one day, I too, will have come to the illustrious point in my career where I can write a nurse up for using the word poop in a note.

    Is my nursing instructor bullying me?

    She sounds absolutely awful. I think your best shot is for the students to get together and make a complaint. So very sorry you are going through this. As for whether or not you will see this in the workplace, you may. Nursing is notoriou...
