  1. discovered and reported falsification of VS

    In reading Ruby's post it's also obvious that the nurse did not notice for approximately 6 hours that the patient was dead. Without knowing all the circumstances involved, 6 hours for a nurse not to notice a patient has died seems like a long stretch...
  2. Actually I think if a question like this comes up in an interview, they are not looking for "inform the nurse" as the only answer. Interview questions like this are designed to see what kind of thought process and initiative a prospective employee ha...
  3. I hate my phone

    First off I would check what your facility's policy is regarding schedule changes once the schedule is posted. Second I would discuss with HR what constitutes your agreeing/accepting a change in your schedule, and I doubt simply leaving a message INF...
  4. Trifling, tricky, 2 faced cnas!!. what to do what to do??

    I tend to question the motives of people that provide "gossipy" information. I have had the misfortune to work with a few people that would relay comments taken out of context in order to spread discontentment. What may have been said may be totally ...
  5. Frustrated

    Almost sounds like we work at the same place!! We just replaced paper charting with the most user unfriendly computer charting possible! It takes 2-3 times longer to chart the most simple of things via computer than it did to write it out. Oh and the...
  6. In what department do you not wipe the backside?

    What the nurses on this board see is that there is NO BENEFIT for the patient to have to unnecessarily wait for someone else to provide proper skin care to incontinent patients. What you don't seem to grasp, mirgadia05, is that the majority of our...
  7. Why am I responsible for the dirty blanket???

    They'd probably be referred back to the NURSE:banghead:
  8. More CNA woes.

    I would just like to point out, regardless of state, the RN IS RESPONSIBLE for the CNA/NA (PCT, UAP, or whatever title is used by a facility) even in Florida. This has nothing to do with who "pays" you. Regardless of whether or not they're certified ...
  9. Well, what I'd like to know is how unfair the housekeeping supervisor would think it is for someone in respiratory distress to die because the nurse is playing pedicurist? The sad part is you're right, she doesn't get it. But again why would anyone p...
  10. I think you've missed the point of the OP. In fact the OP stated that their understanding was that making a resident wait an UNREASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME FOR NO REASON for something was a violation. Her/his issue was the example provided during the in...
  11. How do you deal with an insensitive CNA?

    Your statement that she feels like she is firmly in charge of the unit and that she basically tells the other CNAs what to do etc. sums up the big issue you have with the CNA. She appears to be unchallenged in this belief and is in effect firmly runn...
  12. Nursing Student Blog Lawsuit

    My guess is that Ms. Yoder, regardless of whether she has a favorable outcome, is going to find it hard to gain employment. Prospective employers do check out sites such a myspace and facebook. Employers have fired employees because of postings on my...
  13. Hateful LTC Staff...How Should I deal With It?

    I agree with Leslie, you should talk to your manager about what has been going on along with documentation. I think your manager needs to go higher than the DON at this facility. Obviously the Social worker and DON do not understand the purpose of ...
  14. I want her fired!!!!

    Wooh was reprimanded because somehow (telepathy, astral projection, global warming??) she gave the impression she wasn't there to a family member that wasn't there, despite the facts to the contrary (use of interpreters, charting, presence of other f...
  15. wacko cna

    SBONs tend to stay away from employee/employer or work place issue type conflicts. Even if this wack job filed a complaint with the SBON, I doubt you'll hear from them regarding this matter. Basically I think she was trying to threaten and intimidate...
