And soooooo, I have this coworker. She has actually been in my line of work for 2 more years than I, only she has few years at the company that we work yet....MUCH FEWER than I. My problems: 1. She doesn't seem interested in getting better at her job. 2. Part of our job includes IV infusions, that one MUST be capable of doing quickly...lest patient could potentially die. It's a big deal. 3. Her last working partner, prior to me, was terminated. Now I have worked with him (the terminated one) a few times, and while he isn't the best medic that we had....he also was not as bad as he was painted. He has actually relayed through a friend of ours for me to "watch my back", as this POS coworker of mine will do what she has to to keep her job. 4. She is constantly writing grievances about coworkers...for what is, in my mind....non-issues. So why am I writing this? We have a book that has multiple drug calculations, so that all we have to do, is look at the mL dosage. It's idiot-proof. It's so that we don't have to do the calculations (which I've done many times) sitting behind a patient at 3 AM...with a piece of paper, or calculator. But I had a question about a particular drug, which appeared to me to be off-limits to a pediatric patient. So my coworker, who will do whatever she can to make others look bad, to cover her incompetency (her inability to figure drips on her own) wrote an email to our operations director, who then forwarded it to our shift supervisor. So I was called and told where to find to dosage calculation grid could be found in the notebook. This BITCH, apparently wrote this email (for an answer that SHE didn't know either) and made me look like the only one who was confused. This is the same girl who asked how one goes about applying a traction splint on an OPEN femur fracture, during a class. For those of you in healthcare...how do I deal with this?
