After years of conflict with most of the physicians in my hospital, my boss is turning in her resignation. I really hate seeing her go, so much so that I wrote a letter to the CEO, the COO, the Vice President of Nursing, the Head of Human Resources, and the other charge nurses.
The letter sums up a lot of the frustrations I face as charge, and thought it made a good post. You can tell I'm angry because the more passionate I get, the longer my sentences get.
To set the mood, I'm replying to an email from my boss, Terri, who is asking me to reconsider my thoughts of giving up charge and returning to the floor as a staff nurse, a task for which I feel I am generally more suited anyway.
Let the drama begin...
