    Fired for "sounding like I'm high"....

    Alright I will look into an attorney as soon as possible especially if I find out I'm being black listed. When I went to the department of labor it only listed that I was terminated. They did ask if there were other factors involved in the termination so I told them what I told you guys. I'm not discouraged just yet. I am skeptical of working at another nursing home since from what I experienced at that place is that word of mouth is very powerful rather than a person's performance and effort. Maybe a clinical setting would be better?

    No I'm not hiding anything. What I told you is what happened during the phone call. The only area I was struggling in was delegating the CNA's for the reason listed above which led to several complaints and such. Not only that ,but within the first month of me being there rumors were circulating of me getting into relationships with the CNA staff that the DON approached me about it. I told her they were in no way true. It turns out that the nurse in charge of the other halls on the same shift started those rumors in the first place. It kind of feels like I was at a place where I couldn't win. Everywhere I went it felt like I had a target on my back. They even told me if I applied for unemployment, that they wouldn't argue against it, which is a red flag if I ever saw one.

    Fired for "sounding like I'm high"....

    So today I got a call from the DON of the placed where I worked at and she stated that "We are going to have to let you go. The doctor just got done chewing me out because she thinks that you are incompetent, don't know what you are doing, and sounded like you were high during the phone call (even though other nurses where guiding me during the call). I know I screwed up a few times while I was there due to this being my first nursing job, but something seems really wrong with the way they fired me. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has had awkward phone conversations with doctors. I got the information that needed to be communicated to her. I had an even more awkward conversation with a on call doctor who had a thick accent, but I didn't receive a complaint from her. I had trouble delegating CNA's, some who were just plain lazy and didn't care, others who had a severe attitude problem. Things were getting better, until I received the call. I talked to a few other people and they think I should look into the department of labor and see if I can file a wrongful termination claim. I'm just not sure. Any advice?
