As the floor quieted down, I was able to approach the desk to start to put the pieces together. The supervisor was answering the phonelines. "So you called and called and the nurse never answered? No, there is no problem on the floor to explain why she was ignoring her phonecalls. I will speak to her about this." (Remember that the clerk does not have to answer the phone, even in an emergency.) I walked over to the supervisor and said, "Are you talking about me?" She wouldn't even look at me and kept repeating, "I will not discuss this with you. I told you. I will not discuss this with you."
I think that I'm ready to call this Workplace Bullying. This is coming directly from my supervisor. She is more interested in harrassing me than providing for patients. In this situation, her behavior directly interefered with patient care.
