Good for her.

Luckily I've never had someone in a supervisor/management position verbally abuse me, but I encountered so much of it from customers.
I worked for Speedway for 2 years and encountered some of the most ignorant, rude, scum of the earth people on a daily basis.

People screaming at you, throwing things over the counter at you, threatening you, and all over the price of gas/cigarettes/alcohol, or because a special had ended.
I had to call the cops on numerous occasions because of sexual harassment, or violent and intoxicated people.
I lost some faith in humanity working at that place.
Disapprove





All of this, except I used to work for the city bus service.

I agree . I file a report and nothing happens. Bad enough while placing a IV in a PT and they call you the N word. I plan to retire soon .
 
 
A doctor called you the N word?!!! I swear those reports don't do sh*t. I don't know what I'd do if a doc called me the N word......I'd make a big deal of it.....maybe not to him, but so a superior.
I worked as an ER nurse for a short while and most of the docs were young and sweethearts.
My new floor has older docs and there's a real cool yt nurse that tells me which ones to look out for. I can even see how the nurses get anxious about the doctors yelling or abusing them. I've always prayed this won't happen to me cause I might not know how to act. B/c however it goes down, I feel that doc will never forget me. It's worse since I'm a young nurse, so it might make them easily try to disrespect me.
No. I Experience several racist PT that call me the N word over the years .  I admire young people that enter the field today. Try to obtain several years in the ER and move on if you desire .  I Currently work in the ER . Pediatrics was my specialty at one point. I hope you have a wonderful career.

Yes I've had racist pts, I've left the ER and now work on a different unit. I can't stand all the characters the ER brings in.

I'm not sure if you meant the doctor called you one, or the patient...If the doctor did, you should have reported it.  If the patient did, you should have stuck them 20 times "I just can't find a good vein"LOL

eta: just read this page nowLOL

In my younger days, I had a manager cuss me, and then PUSH me.  Needless to say I beat her ass.  I was a cocktail waitress.
 
I also had a manager (retail) who was very ugly and rude to all the staff that worked for her.  I was assistant manager and all the employees were coming to me to complain.  I had to quit that job after 3 months or risk catching a case with that one. . .
 
Currently I work with a doctor who habitually verbally abuses nurses, but after I told him several years ago he could kiss my ass talking to me with that tone, I am NOT your fukkin wife or child and you don't sign my gatdam paycheck, and to PLEASE write an order that Peaceful can NEVER take your patients again, he quit doing that sh!t to me, and now he LOVES me and we have a respectful relationship.
 
I think some of these employers/coworkers know who they can mess with and it becomes a habit, a feeding frenzy, once they start getting away with it. 
 
I am glad she sued.
 
And before someone says Shocked Peaceful, just know, it's a GOAL. LOL woo sa
