theres a doctor at my workplace who literally hates my guts...long story but basically I was a witness to his verbal abuse of our unit administrator who of course filed a grievance and so the higher powers asked me if what was said was the truth and I had no choice but to back her up, he was really a nasty piece of work about the whole thing, so anyway now whenever he's on call and I call for something he wants to try and "stupidify" me , questions my rationales left right and center and on one particular night shift his lack of action put me in direct risk with respect to a psych patient that shouldnt have even been on our unit, so now I'm extremely blunt and straightforward with him ,there is no a$$ kissing , there is no Joking , not even politeness I would say , just "heres the situation , can we have an order for your patient" type of thing...
luckly he is the only one who has ever really been nasty, and the other dr's I work with more than make up for his piss poor attitude... one dr overheard me telling the story of the end of my relationship and she came up to me and told me that I'm a wonderful person and that I would find love again, and then just last week another dr who was on call came to pronounce a pt who passed away and she was saying "you know youre a very good nurse, I've noticed that you always seem to be on the ball and in control, I admire that"
(have her fooled huh?) anyway , everytime that nasty dr is evil to me I think of the ones who arent... nice doctors do exist ,and remembering that helps me cope
however I have seriously considered making a complaint about this doctor based on how he treats me now , but its kind of tricky, he hasnt really "verbally abused" me...yet heh
