    Last night I was on our dementia wing when the administer called and told me she wanted me to go to another wing to cover a break. I politely reminded her that the rules state that their has to be at least 2 staff on the wing, and if I left there would only be 1 person. So, she then tells me that if I don't cover that break, I will be written up.
    So, seeing no choice I go to cover the break. Not even 5 minutes later, the administer call and tells me I need to report to her office. When I get there she tells me I'm now on a 2 week suspension for leaving my wing. When I reminded her that she threatened me with a write up if I didn't cover that break, she responsed with "That doesn't matter." So today I will be out job hunting.

    Honestly I don't think she planned it. I think she was trying to cover her add by passing the blame. Needless to say I hope I get hired some place so I won't have to go back.

    That is an issue you should not just brush under the rug. You need to report it to HR.

    sounds like she has dementia....


    I remember a nurse doing something similar and trying to set me up when I was working a unit one time, but there was video footage of her not doing her job, so there!

    Yea, HR. And I assume you're in the medical field? Never stray from protocol. Direct orders or not.

    Good luck on the job hunt.
