    I Hope This is Not the Latest Trend

    The director is ultimately to blame. How do you run a place and not catch the things that went on? A good director would have caught the things happening.

    I Hope This is Not the Latest Trend

    I bet some of these nurses earned a nurse of the year award at some point while working at the place. Some admin love it when you don't care or bring your concerns to them about patient care.

    I need a change!

    Go prn..and do something else on the side. If you can keep your foot in nursing and do something else what would you choose?

    Nursing school has pushed me to the edge. Anyone else?

    If you are a sensitive person (empath) you will percieve things stronger than most and you will have to learn how to protect yourself from feeling over-whelmed by all of the emotions you will encounter from people working in the nursing field. You will have to be able to handle the patients emotions as well.

    Dismissal from Nursing program; options?

    Who has a problem with you?, not saying it is your fault. Do you smell like you vape? Do you vape?

    Anyone else regret becoming a nurse?

    I feel that she doesn't like the conditions of the job ( there are many people that don't, not just her) but she tried to make it work and it didn't, hence the job hopping. She could have done things differently and still ended up in the same situation.

    Nurses Call the Governor of Tennessee

    You weren't working, totally different situation. You knew you had bad night vision.

    Nurses Call the Governor of Tennessee

    This wasn't deliberate, so she doesn't deserve the homicide charge.

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Maybe the nurse was chemically impaired or dealing with some mental issues, we will never know because apparently it isn't important to check when charging someone with homicide. We are assuming she wasn't. If she was high on something, things make more sense, if suffering from a mental condition, then its another story. The case has holes.

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Before a nurse pulls a certain med ( medication like the one the nurse gave ) there should be some verbal oversight by the pharmacy. You should need a special code that you get from the pharmacist. The pharmacist should question the heck out of you as to why you need this override code. A machine is a machine all day long and despite the nurse not checking things on her part it still doesn't negate that a woman was killed. How will this change in the future if ths hospital doesn't have a better way of handling this?

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    How do we know that the hospital didn't set some of these things up?, like planting the syringes, they definitely aren't on her side and probably want to hurry up and just be done with the whole case. The hospital didn't allow for any mental evaluations to be done on the nurse, yet concluded all of these things. Maybe something was going on with her mental state at the time.

    Is this insubordination? How do I deal with this PSW?

    Most of the time, the managers/directors know exactly what is going on but choose not to do anything about it. Sometimes they like the person you have a problem with so keep that in mind. Definitely push forward and try to do something about it. The person doesn't respect the director. The director isn't making her. That is your main problem.

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Was something medically wrong going on with the nurse? Was she looked at for having experienced any psychiatic issues at the time of the incident? Was she drug tested? Something is very odd about about this whole situation. It may come out later that she has some psychiatric issues. It just seems that if she is going to be charged with homicide that she should be given the proper mental evaluation like all other criminals that are charged with homicide. Shouldn't she be given the opportunity to claim insanity?

    Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    Maybe the nurse was burned out and didn't know it.
