    Did I say something wrong?

    Yes of course it would've been easier. This headache wouldn't have existed if I did it myself. This N.A. was doing NOTHING when I asked of her to do this task. This N.A. also refused to help her with morning care .. she said to me that she has hands why cant she wash herself.. and I said to her that the patient is asking for help, why dont you see what she needs help with. She was resistant to care for her to begin with that at the end of the day the patient tells me she didnt want the N.A. to touch her. I didnt even mention this part to my nurse manager.. I didnt even tell the N.A. what he patient said to me. This is off my off my original topic though related. I do not feel meeting up with this N.A. with the nurse manager will fix anything. She will most likely just continue to argue and be challenging to work with.

    To be honest I didnt even remember having a tone. I was too busy. The N.A. should see how busy I was and pitch in.

    I understand saying please and thank you. If the N.A. do tasks without my asking we wouldn't have had this encounter. What I dont understand is we all do what we need to for the patient. The N.A. is not doing me any favors. Im barely sitting down.. and if I dont say please make her bed im suddenly the bad nurse and she has to talk back to me in front of the patient?

    Did I say something wrong?

    On a very busy morning where I'm trying to control a patient's surgical pain to discharges and family and patient education I was confronted by a nurse tech. This is how the conversation went: it was 11:35am. Me: " I know you are having your lunch at 12. Would you make ms. m's bed. She just sat in the chair but she will soon be called to dialysis in her bed so she will go need to go back to her bed soon." reply from nursing attendant in front of the patient:" I will make her bed when I get to it. I don't appreciate you telling me how to do my job. I don't like the way you talked to me" she had just created added unnecessary stress that morning. she complained about me to my nurse manager who didn't agree or disagree but she listened. I had to tell her what transpired between us though brief. now I have a meeting this week with the nursing attendant and the nurse manager to discuss what happened? to be honest I didn't even know anything bad happened? All I did was delegate a task. has anyone been in this situation?
