My job has now become a hostile work environment. My desk is now in the visitor waiting room of maternity ward of hospital. The unit is on lock down. Patient areas are only accessible by badges. I call nurse. Nurse comes to waiting room and escorts vistors back to patient rooms. Today I was threatened by visitors. A woman and her friend both females asked to see a patient. I said of course let me call the nurse. Nurse said I'll be right there. The woman paces the floor for 2 minutes then approaches desk saying why I have to wait. I said I'm not sure mam but I did call the nurse. She then says" you know you've been ******* with me all day " Her friend says "yeah I'm bout to slap her short ***". Her *** is too short to slap" I immediately pushed the panic button on the phone. And I ran out of the room behind locked doors with my badge. Security comes . The women had already left to patients room let in by family not nurses. Security ask me what happened. Charge nurse said the nurse you called claims you never called. I told her thats a lie. Charge nurse checked the phone and said She found out I was telling the truth. But my managers hate me. They've been trying to fire me for months. I am afraid they're going to get me for not staying there to be beat up by those women. What should I do? Nursing staff lies on me all the time. I need my job.

People are never fired without good reason. I'm reading between the lines here and guessing every bad thing in your life is someone else's fault. When, in reality, you can't play well with others and enjoy playing the victim.

I know someone just like you. Always crying boohoo. Grow up.

You need to see a lawyer. Creating a hostile work environment is not legal, nor is putting your safety at risk. There ARE things you can do to protect yourself, and a lawyer can explain them.

And no, I'm not a lawyer...not drumming up business!

Where exactrly is her fault in the scenario? She followed protocol, the nurse lied, and the scumbag visitors threatened violence. And then non-authorized personnel let the aggressors into the safe area. I see at least one termination here--the lying nurse.

Typical moron, blaming the victim for the actions of the harassers. BTW---she would get unemployment, not welfare, as well as a good chance of a legal settlement if they fire her.

Are you the incompetent nurse in the scenario?

Another thing--keep a diary of every act of harassment or hostility. Don't overstate the case, just write down date, person, and action. It can protect you from claims of being hysterical or vindictive, and show a pattern of harassment.

I agree. This person is always on here while she should be working. She needs to just quit and find something else to do. I wouldn't hire her.

You didn't mind when the Russian Chick spent an inordinate amount of time posting her racist rants here at the forum whilst at work at the hospital. It's reasonable to conclude you're just a hateful racist. That's why you have cancer. Karma. You're deserving of all the corrosion,loneliness and challenges you're now facing. The world will be much sunnier when you've passed. It really will be. The hate is eating you.

Karma is a B*tch. Live it. Know it. Eat it. And good riddance.

That's why she has the problems she does. Karma. You can't expect smart decisions out of stupid people. Everything with her is someone else's fault.

See, no one else wants you. Probably because you spend to much time on the computer.

You should know. I understand why the guy that broke your heart left you. He was smart. Why should anyone spend any time with someone filled with so much hate? Hell,you make people miserable just by your presence here.

When you do finally kick the bucket,and if there is indeed a Hell. It is my hope you spend your eternity in Hell serving the sexual needs of Idi Amin. It would serve you just right.

Just do your job and be professional. Hopefully something else will open up and you can get away from these harpies. And stay near security cameras as much as possible. Usually cowards like these won't get violent, but if they do, call 911 immediately.
