A CNO would go in a patient room usually during shift change and turn on the call light to time how long we took to answer it.  Weird!?!?

Nothing too mysterious; there is something off-kilter about people like this. They don't feel good about themselves and have big problems.

Would the CNO ever pitch in and answer a call light...?

I've only worked in inpatient hospital settings, but I think that would be all the evidence I need to find a new job ASAP. 

Closing one unit in a hospital, giving every employee a pink slip, and then allowing the employees that were lucky enough to land jobs in other units to be bullied by other nurses for "not being qualified" to work in their new units.

Often there are bait and switch tactics in the hiring process. A nurse is applying and supposedly getting one job only to find out they are actually going to be working elsewhere.

I have seen that plenty of times here. I know people this happened to. They ended up quitting.

You know the policy " it is EVERYONE'S responsibility to answer the light" ?

True story:

Admin to busy day shift aide "Why aren't these call lights being answered?"

Aide to admin "well, why didn't you answer them then. Isn't everyone suppose to answer call lights?"

Admin perturbed and goes to complain to busy day shift manager

This happened to a psych tech I know.  In the interview process they were wishy-washy about what shift they were hiring her for.  In orientation they asked her to sign an agreement to do Noc shift.

Would of loved to see the indignant look on the admin face.

A really good charge nurse believes they will get promoted to mgr. The CN always there for admin, they string the CN along, then when it comes time to hiring the unit mgr they pick someone who is rarely on the unit.

Using COVID as an excuse to close our floor and having a group of doctors (administrators) attempt a power grab (ultimately it failed).

First time I saw him I asked someone "Why is hiding behind the curtain? What is he doing?"

I was so confused?!?!? just confused. Yeah (((sigh)))

Had to read that twice before I got it. Yeah that's bad.
