Ok, I'll try to make this short!! Lol
We have a small office of 3-5 admin staff and 1-2 nursing staff, and a manager who is a nurse but doesn't sit in the same room.
Previously we have had a nurse working in the room who was harassing and intolerable, and overstepped a lot of boundaries. Had the opinion that as she was a nurse and other staff admin, she was 'supervisor' and ruled the roost. Put her nose in where it didn't belong etc and made everyone's life MISERABLE. We lost a lot of staff.
Anyway, thankfully this woman has retired. We have been all functioning fine as a unit, very productive and getting along well.
Now a new nurse has come on board and she is practically identical. Our manager has been on unexpected leave and has sent out an email informing us, while saying - any issues, speak to (our manager's manager). This new nurse has taken it upon herself to take over management of the unit and boss around all of the other staff. Even managing rostering etc!
Basically, I don't want it to get back to the point we were at last time. Everyone was miserable, 2 staff in counselling, high staff turnover, poor work performance and disfunctional unit
How can we 'nip it in the bud' in an appropriate way?!? Anyone got any ideas about how to handle it in an appropriate/professional manner.
