Chapter 10 illustrates the many difficult situations the HR Nursing professional may need to analyze, create a response plan, and document thoroughly. In this assignment, you will create a brief response to each of the cases.
An RN comes to you complaining that the females in her department make less than the males. The nursing manager is female, and this is the first complaint you have heard.
After a dispute with another physician, one of the most popular Internal Medicine doctors quits, she has a non-compete clause that requires her not to practice within a 30-mile radius. She converts a small clinic 31 miles away and advertises aggressively in newspapers and social media, resulting in a significant loss of patients.
Your medical and surgical nursing manager hired four employees, including a young RN who resigned from his current position to take this one. A month later, an MD retired, and the patient census dropped significantly, causing the manager to terminate the nurse. Your organization is an Employment-at-Will State. The nurse files a grievance.
A nursing manager sends you several emails that an employee sent to a peer with very unfavorable comments about the manager. The nursing manager wants to fire the employee.
It is brought to your attention that an employee has a photo on Facebook showing drug use. There have been no complaints about the employee while at work.
