Can be either at your place of business or someone you need to deal with who also works in your field (there's no discrimination when it comes to wrongful behaviors on behalf of the one with power).
Of course I'll start with my gripe du jour......there's this "nurse" who makes me nutty every now and again. She doesn't work for my agency
At least once a month, SHE will arrive way early for their meeting, get pissy-issy that the client is not there (because obviously, SHE is ready to go home and the client should be there waiting for her with bells on) so Ms. Professional starts calling everyone and their brother (even agencies who no longer work with this man--hell, I no longer work directly with this man) claiming he's not being seen and is non-compliant with treatment.
Not wanting to
Maybe they were, and are being dealt with internally, but I guess I will never know.
Anyways, this is just something that annoys me about working in our field that I needed to gripe about today.
It also provides a lot of food for thought about how already vulnerable people who depend on our system are being portrayed by the ones in authority.
I remember when I was a lot younger and just starting out in the field, I held a few case management positions where basically I just had to show up and hope the client was there. Many times, they were not, since of course, they were not expecting me. And back then, before I had the experience, education and training, I have now, I sorta perceived the whole "non-compliance thing" going on too.
There is definitely a difference though between a client not following treatment recommendations and us as helping providers just wanting to go home early ;).
I hope you all get to leave work early today, or at least relish the fact that we almost made it through another hump day.
