Trauma_Junkie is really ready for Memorial Day!
It seems I did something very incorrectly while covering for the Employee Health RN back in June.
I did not mean to, but I actually did not know any better. I should clarify that No one was harmed in any way shape or form.
I’m very annoyed because the EH nurse did not really go over how to handle the situation, she just kind of dumped a packet on my desk and then went on vacation. So….I tried.
What I find unusual about the situation is that at least 2 managers within the hospital were unaware of the correct policy, and they have been through this before.
But there is no point in pointing fingers, though I have to admit, thats what I want to do. My Manager was very nice about it, and said, when we all get back next week, we can go over it so that when you are in that situation again, this won’t happen. But, what a pain in the neck it has been for her I can tell.
Not losing my job over this, but Gosh, I just feel miserable that I did that incorrectly…and it would now seem to be causing issue for my manager. Phooey.
