I slept in today. I was really stressed last night I had a rough night at work. I was working with this cranky lady. She was yelling at everyone and I went to do something the boss told me to do and she yelled at me. ANd then she reported me to one of our main bosses and said I was slacking and I was doing everything they asked me to do. And she gets mad cause I answer call lights when they go off and she just lets them go off. I have seen her let them ring if its someone who aggrivates her. And I got a verbal warning yesterday to stop slacking and I wasn't slacking. She got mad cause I had to take the residents out to smoke but I was told to my charge nurse was sitting there when her boss and mine told me to go smoke them. And everytime we got ready to do something she would be headed to get the say supplies I was and she would get ill and say I am going to get it. We took one mans vital signs and the machine takes his pulse but not his respirations and I forgot my watch and I said we needed the reps and she took his pulse and I said no we need the reps and she we already took his vitals and was just being ugly about it. And when Ann gave me the verbal warning I told her what was going on and she told me just to humor her. Why the heck should I humor her when I have been with the company the same amount of time as her even if it was in a different facility. She wrote down 76 for the reps and if you are breathing that fast they better take you to the ER because your lungs are going to explode. And the dumb nurse in charge I guess didn't notice it cause she charted it. I just had a rough night and she is not taking care of residents right. She is too hateful to them and that's just as important as cleaning them up. One of the men asked her to pull him up and she told him he was too heavy for us to be pulling up. And he's not. Sorry I had to vent. It was just awful none of us at the other facility ever talked to residents like that besides well that one charge nurse. She gets so worked up over stupid stuff I thought she was going to hit someone one day and our med tech was in there and she told her to calm down a bit. Yes I know its stressful but its part of the job. And what's worse is they let her do this stuff and it comes back on me being the bad guy because I won't treat them like that and she yells at me for trying to talk to one of our combative ones instead of just doing whatever we are going to do to him. And I saw her bend his thumb one day and I reported it and nothing happened other than me looking like the bad guy. What is wrong with people that they have to be so nasty to people all the time. Sorry still venting. But I was in tears several times last night and I don't think I should have to be in tears while I work.
