Saturday: Charge Nurse made the assignment for the nurses under her, which soon-to-be-fired nurse did. At the end of the shift, buddy supervisor was called and shown a different assignment sheet, where soon-to-be-fired nurse did not do her assigned tasks. Write-up #1.
Sunday: Soon-to-be-fired nurse escorted patients to scheduled activity on the grounds as directed by Charge Nurse. As soon as soon-to-be-fired nurse left the ward, Charge Nurse told the supervisor and security that soon-to-be-fired nurse kidnapped the patients. Security located her in the activity and escorted her out of the building and told her never to return.
I did not know any of this when I came to work on Monday. Several people approached me with wild tales of fired nurse attacking people, screaming, being tackled to the ground and handcuffed, arrested. "You saw this happen?" I asked of each storyteller. "No," was always their answer.
After work I went to fired nurse's home, as she was not answering her phone. She explained the set-up, carefully timed for the weekend to limit the number of actual witnesses. She added, "They told me that if I try to fight the firing, they will report me to the Board of Nursing and present more witnesses and proof so that I will lose my license."
There is nothing stopping them from getting rid of me in the same manner.
