SUBJECT: Immediate Resign
Receive from my partthis letter witch explain my resignation effective and immediacy December 6, 2009. I do not want to leave without giving my appreciation and thanks for giving methe offer during last four months, but I have to express my self certain events that should have not happen witch accelerate my resignation
1- Patients/residentsare demanding to receive there medication one or two hours before there time and since I did not please there demand, because of that I receive a verbal and writtennotice. Witch to my understanding I was following doctor orders and respecting hospital rules, Federal Regulations* of The State of Florida*.
2- When I am force bysuperiors to give medications in the hall ways or any were other then the patients/residents home room. This action voids right of privacy to the patients/residents, and Ihave observe when I give medication to patients in the hall ways some of the other patients/residents incline to read the nurse chart, when I am not looking this wouldnot occur if its done the correct way.
3- I have receive input from other patient/residents that they do not appreciate other patients/residents invading thereprivacy when I administer there medication.
4- These actions are putting my professional reputation and my nurse license in jeopardy, for these reason I am putting myresignation.
* This in-services ‘’RESIDENTS RIGHTS’’ I have received by Terra Vista during my orientation ,when I was hired.
