Caring Nurse FIRED
I'm a RN for a dialysis center. Have been employed for three years. Never have I been terminated until yesterday when I got to work and was given papers. To make a long story short, my female boss cursed at me and a fellow employee on the floor two years ago and I wrote up an incident report on that situation. Ever since then I have the worst schedule and feel she had it out for me. A few weeks ago I was confronted by a tech who wanted to know why I was leaving early. Basically she was rude and I raised my voice back. No patients were in the center and we were the only two staff in the back pod. Her rendition stated I called her "stupid" and her two friends who are also techs agreed. I then texted my boss and let her know what happened. (We frequently text them). She replied with a "I don't give a shit about you or your problems." I took this to my administrator and showed him. Come to find out she said her husband was the one who replied. Long story short they basically said I called someone "stupid" , I took a patient off early without proper documentation. 15 minutes early and he was cramping. Lastly they said I didn't clock out when I left the building on my paid break to cross the road for coffee. NOBODY ever clocks out and they haven't held anyone else accountable to this policy. Bottom line is patients come off early all the time, her friends were the witness to the "stupid" word I didn't say and the policy of clocking out on a paid break isn't followed. They have a disciplinary process that wasnt followed for each of these things. First verbal, secondly written, third probation and lastly termination. I feel I got my boss in trouble turning her in and they haven't followed their own disciplinary process. Applied for benefits- single mom and really bummed out.
