I would address this with the facility after the FIRST time they asked Flo to float to another facility farther away to ask if it was something they were planning to do more often. I would see how Flo felt about it and immediately address the facility and tell them we would hold them to the contract agreed upon during the hire and ask that additional compensation be paid for the increased mileage (because have you SEEN the gas prices these days?). I would stay in communication with Flo about her wants/needs and go to bat for her based on her preferences.
This could put her license indanger. First, communication is vital`; how does Betty feel about this? Willthey be training her at all? If this is beyond her scope, she has my blessingto nope right out of it, and I will stand by her decision.
"NOPE. Get out of there, girl. I'm going to book you a hotel down the street. Call me as soon as you get there."
First, ensure she is ok and ask her what I can do to help. Make sure her housing is secure, and if she has any pets that someone can help petsit or care for them. Inform the facility, and depending on what she wants to do, cancel and relocate or fight for her to be allowed to continue her contract without retribution. I would send her a gift, too, because that is a rough situation to be in, and if I could, visit and make sure she had everything she needed and wasn't alone.
First, send her to breakfast/lunch so she can relax while we figure out what happened. I would see if we can get her the contract anyway since she is already there, and if they refuse, I will get her into another facility asap. Luckily I am also an Account Manager with dozens of direct accounts (including Vegas), so I can get her working immediately while we figure out our next steps so she doesn't lose out on her income.
Communication is SO important! I will always go to bat for my nurses, but it is much harder to do if there is an ongoing problem I am only told about four weeks later. If you don't like something that is happening during your contract (like the being floated situation listed above), tell me the first time, even if you are going to go along with it; that way, I can document it and see what our options are for preventing it from happening again. I will advocate for you every time, but it is easier if I have a paper trail to back it up. Call me if you need something, it's the easiest way to get ahold of me, and I can address your questions right there and then without distraction. Don't be afraid to call me if you feel stressed, overwhelmed, or have a bad day. The last thing I want is for you to feel like you are doing this alone. We are a team, you be Batman, and I'll be Alfred. I help you get to where you need to be, and you save lives. You are never alone on your contract, and I will be here any time you need me, for anything, even just to vent.
