Mommy has always been someone who has had a hard time standing up for herself but parenting a child with all my special needs has forced her to be more assertive on my behalf. So despite being sick to her stomach at confronting the nurse she knew she didn't have a choice. With such a horrible start to the morning it was no wonder that Mommy fought a migraine the entire day.
But when the nurse showed up tonight for her shift there was no mention of what had transpired earlier in the day.
My parents wish they could just fire her but the agency has been looking for a replacement for months now but haven't found one yet. Since she works the five nights during the week that my parents work the next morning they have kept her until now. But they realize that after two verbal and one written warning about the same problem it is unlikely she will keep her opinions to herself for long. The agency has a pediatric night nurse in orientation next week so let's all cross our fingers that she might work out. With all the stress with this nurse it only makes my parents appreciate the good nurses that much more!
