Let's see I have a couple:
1 week of classes/3weeks on the med/surg floor (hospital) where I was expected to take care of 7 patients during the dayshift, and possibly more on night shift. The final straw was when a fellow co-worker gave pt heparin shot (which pt was allergic to/ allergy band on wrist) and had what was close to anaphylaxis reaction as I have seen. Next night, different RN but same pt, again received heparin shot. Came upon the room to see the code cart, docs, RNs and pt's family standing there stating ' she got the heparin again?!' Finished my shift, left a hand written notice under the manager's door. Was begged to come in and meet with manager & nursing director to discuss my leaving, but I declined; list long of reasons were clearly stated in my letter.
Travel RN in AZ hospital; left after 1 week classroom and 1 shift on the floor. I signed up for med/surgery, but ended up on ortho (which I had NO experience). Given 1 nite of orientation, took care of up to 8 fresh post ops, only 1 CNA to 30 patients. Oh, and they only used dial-a-flows, and hid the IV pumps. That nite had a multiply issues with patients, confused patients with restraints that pulled out foley, trying to figure out their computer system, and come upon a pt that reports she hasn't voided in hours. Pt fresh post op bilateral knee sx, foley removed in PACU (?why???) and the preceptor responded "oh just give her some time". Forget that, I went and checked her w/bladder scanner and she had 999ml + in her bladder. I placed an indwelling foley. The preceptor was miffed. I finished my shift, and called my recruiter the next day and quit; "for fear of losing my license."
