Apr 29, 2014 Just asking if you don't want people to know you are talking about a work situation why are you using your name and also picture? You are making it real easy for someone at work to find out what you are saying here and that could cause issues for you at work!Re work if you have time it's always good to read up on the pt such as H & P, consults and test results. Many times critical info can be missed or overlooked in the quick and harried bedside report, but that's another story!As to the rude behavior, yes it would be nice if everyone was courteous, but the reality is in the high stress environment of nursing sometimes people can be abrupt. I wouldn't take it personally, but that's just me. If it bothers you could be assertive and let the person know they come across as rude. Whether that will make a difference in future behavior only time will tell.So why do you think they promoted her to CNS? Do you think it is favoritism and that is what is bothering you or does she have the skills and knowledge but simply has an abrasive personality and she wasn't the one you preferred for the job?Sometimes I think it is harder to accept a coworker getting a promotion because of our impression and relationship with them, but if you give them a chance many times they will prove themselves worthy of the job.
