That sure took some guts/cojones to call the police on your employer.

why on earth would you not check on your dying pt for 5 hours?

thanks for all you do you are an amazing nurse and role model

why are you such a witch i understand you are the charge nurse, but i am doing activities work not nursing so back off

i dont care what you think of me but really stop talking behind my back i do hear things and it will back fire

my business is my business not all of our coworkers and what i do and who i talk to does not need to be broadcasted to the whole place

i love working nights with you you keep me happy positive and motivated to do my work you are an awesome coworker

When I'm on my break/s, please ensure my HDU patient's obs are done. I do the same for u on ur break. They MUST be done every hour. As you are a Grad Year RN but have worked in the HDU b4, I will cut some slack but next time you can't just say 'I forgot' and leave it at that.

'I forgot' isn't good enough (my pt's BSL wasn't done either)

LPNs are nurses, too. Stop talking to me and refusing to call me a NURSE.

And also, I'd appreciate it if you'd (different person!) stop freaking going behind my back and have the ovaries to tell me your opinions yourself. If you wish I'd quit, why don't you just admit it to my face?

Wouldn't that be a luxury!? Too bad the economy and job siuation is so off-kilter these days. I know several folks who'd like to tell their co-workers to_____________(fill in the blank), but can't afford to be out of work.

There are times I would love to take somebody by the shoulders, shake 'em good and say, " What the'H' is the matter with you!!!???"

If "x" hospital is so great, why aren't you still working there? And (to the same person), if you're such a great nurse, why do you leave work undone after your shift? Did you really think I wanted to do admission databases on your pts that you had for several hours?

I stayed over this morning to help you with a pt I passed off to you. I was happy to do it. In return do you think you could pass your 1700 and 1800 meds? If this was a one off it would be one thing, but this isn't unusual for you.

To another, why are you trying to narc on your fellow CNAs for supposedly not doing their vitals. This is a small floor. I can tell if the CNAs that have my rooms are doing their jobs without your help, thank you very much.

Lack of planning on your part doesn't constitute and emergency on mine.

Don't get ticked at me for looking up policy/procedures. Your suggestion didn't sound right and guess what...it wasn't!

Stop being nasty to the nursing students on the floor. They've allowed you time to shop on E-bay this afternoon.

There are ways in which to speak to people. The "I'm just blunt" excuse is old and quite honestly, it makes you sound like such a fool.

Have you ever worked a day shift? No? Then you don't know what I do during my shift. In a perfect world, I would report off with absolutely nothing for you to do. However, when I am hanging blood for two patients and get a new admit 30 minutes before the end of my shift, I don't have time for documenting the care plans and education...sorry. If you don't like it, discuss the over-time policy with administration. If they change it, then I will stay to document it and ensure you have nothing to do.

Just because my students like me doesn't make me an easy instructor. I listen to their concerns, address them, and treat them with respect. I am also prepared for lecture, test over material covered, and break up class time with activities and group work. Try reading literature on differing teaching methodologies. You will be surprised to know your militant style is obsolete.
