Ain't that the truth?
RN- Jane. Get out of there now and don't wait until things blow up in your face. Remember: It is your license and only you can lose it. And remember how difficult it was to get it.
For those nurses who wish to stay, I say: ORGANIZE! UNIONIZE!
And, if need be, pull a wildcat STRIKE. SICKOUT. FLU-OUT. CALL OUT. If cops can do it, so can they. Or, a RN does have the option of simply refusing to take the shift due to concerns for patient safety; I've done it more than a couple of times.
You sound like a great and dedicated RN. Go to where they appreciate you. I am a colleague and am on your side.
I work at a large teaching hospital where we have new residents every month...without exception, you can overhear comments about "you have to watch these nurses, they'll kill your patients", not to mention the temper tantrums which ensue if you're not a mind-reader and cater to every whim. One of my coworkers was yelled at, sworn at by a physician because the nurse called the doc for admission orders at 0300. There was no reprimand for the doctor, of course. What is the nurse supposed to do in a situation like that?
I handed in my resignation last week too. I'm a new grad, I have had it with the manager who refuses to work for the staff and instead chooses to burn out the staff for her own gain. This woman has said not one positive thing to me during my almost-seven months on the unit. She wants the nurses to address the physician in the proper way: "Sir".
No wonder people run from nursing. There has got to be a better way!
Thanks to everyone for their support, i'm sending out resumes today, Wish me luck!!
