My first nursing job I had such a hard time dealing with this. A lot of the nurses I worked with would report other nurses to our manager. Usually through an email, things like "Jane didn't change this dressing on time, or Jane left her room in a mess, or all the iv tubing was expired,etc.." and you would get an email or meeting from the manager asking why this happened.I haven't been reported for anything in a long time, and last week during my very first week at a new travel assignment I get a phone call from the manager saying she wasn't happy with my standard of care and she expects more. Apparently the nurse following me reported me to the manager. She said I left my room messy (the room was clean with the exception of the trash...I am not a housekeeper and do not empty trash...but was told I should have paged housekeeping). I am usually very anal about keeping a clean room, as I'm sure most of you guys are.Also, she said I didn't shave my pt and it appeared I didn't get him mouth care all night. He was intubated, and I just generally don't shave my patients daily. Although I have made it a point now to do so everyday now. I gave him mouth care, but he was just one of those pts who had horribly thick secretions.Also I was reported for not emptying my foley bag. She said the urometer was overflowing. My pt was on a Lasix drip, and could have possibly just dumped over 300cc for that hour. She then said the EVD wasn't level, it was about 1 inch to high. The pt probably just slid down a bit in his bed.I was just so upset about this, and still am. It was like a huge list of all these things and she made me feel like such a horrible nurse. She said they have a higher standard of care, which really upset me. It was my first week there and now I feel I will be looked at like this horrible nurse.I often see things that the nurse I have followed hasn't done. I have never ever reported anyone for something, I would much rather just casually and politely tell the other nurse whatever she forgot to do if it is that important. I feel like I have been singled out here. I have now been at this assignment 3 weeks and have found lots of things that other nurses have done wrong, but wouldn't dream of reporting this to the manager. I now find myself paranoid at work and scared to death someone will report me for something. I'm scared what if I overlook something I am supposed to do. I'm just really upset about this and wondered if anyone else has had any problems with nurses reporting eachother.
