    What should be done with a nurse who is not ready to listen to the Doctor’s orders?

    I am working as a doctor in a government hospital. One of the nurses in our hospital is very nasty and has no respect for others. She never obeys the doctor’s orders and do whatever she wishes to. I am completely fed up of her and so are the others. What should be done with such a person?

    Sir
    A nurse is expected to be polite and understanding with every patient and the doctor , in fact this is very lesson been taught to every nurse at first and now if she fails to even fulfill this then sorry she is very disobeying the rules .

    You have the authoruty , then do call her and ask her to better get on the right way and dont incite you to take any harsh action against her.
    Still if she is reluctant and not ready to obey the rules and commands then call a meeting of the seniors and there ask that nurse to apologize and promise to not to repeat all this again as otherwise you all will file a complaint against her that may even result into her termination.

    Thank you

    Hello Friend,

    Well, you can take disciplinary action against her at any time. Nursing is a noble profession and in our society people repect nurse. But these days even nurse has no respect to their Doctors. It is mandatory to obey Doctors order at hospital but if the nurse does not obey orders then you should talk to her and tell her that if she does not obey the orders then she will face punishement. If she still continues her own way of doing thing then you should write a letter to the Hospital Super and request him to take disciplinary action against her. People like her should be punished.

    Bye,

    HELLO,
    1.Reconnoiter the workplace.
    2.
    Obtain a copy of the policies so you can refer to it as needed.
    3.Relax and unwind the day before your first day.
    4.Talk to them. Do not rely solely on what you see. Ask them how they are feeling. This also serves to build rapport and trust between you and the patient.
    5.You should also check for other relevant information such as patient history, allergies, and special instructions like DNRs (Do Not Resuscitate documents).
    THANKS.......
