My pt sitting in chair, HR 151, BP 87/46. no distress. Fresh knee post-op with morphine pca. MD called. wants pt to go to telemetry. Another MD evaluated pt & says he is in rapid afib get him back in bed "Transfer to ICU." I call the supervisor to explain everything and that's when she starts yelling at me. "Why didn't you call me first, he does not need to go anywhere!" Then she arrives on the floor "You didn't medicate him well enough that's why he's like this." along with more additional replies about pain medication use. I said "I just started my shift. He's on a PCA, and he's denying pain!" She rolls her eyes. Then the pt suddenly had a brief moment of syncope while PT is getting him to bed. Supervisor spats at me "Don't you know what a vasovagal is? Have you seen one before?" I said "Yes, once, when my patient was on a bedside commode." She says "You should have called me before calling those doctors! Don't you know how to assess properly?" She goes on and on. It was getting personal. But I was more focused on getting orders completed & my pt to the unit rather than getting involved in her self-generating arguments. I doubt she listened to me. She just kept yelling. She would be more of a use if she helped carry orders out instead of trying to find a blame for his condition. I asked her 3 times what room is my pt being transfered to? She finally spat out the room number as she was walking away from me. What the heck?? Then a few hours later she tells me smiling "That was a good call" I did not even want to pursue an apology or defend myself. With her type of personality, my words would only be blowing in the wind.My resignation was already turned in. I can't imagine working here any longer. I need to work with teamplayers who want to seriously save lives. Should I complain? The nurse manager on my floor is already aware of how the supervisors are. This is not the first. I was told that a pt coded and died because the nursing supervisor intercepted a transfer. I learned something new: Seems to me that there is some "administration vs the nurses" problem that has been existing long before I started.
