Q & A

I work in healthcare with the eldrly, and i love it. But really i try to treat people with respect, rather i like them or not, And i really dont know how to handle some of my coworkers, who are very disrespectful and some our downright rude, and seem to like to argue. Any ideas on this one, I just walk away from it i guess, I dont like to fuss at work, and it is very frowned upon for very good reasons.

    • You might just mention that it would be a wonderful world if everyone treated the elderly like they were their own parent.  That might get thru to a few of them.

    • Talk to the nursing supervisor about starting a reward system “Caught You Being Nice” with a posted board with pictures of the participants! Have a  binder that is used to record the names and nice acts performed. Co-workers can do the recording of catching each other being nice!  At the end of the month, have a drawing for prizes.

      Oops! Misread question! My response would be PRAY FOR THEM.

    • Sort of hint that eventually they will be elderly. Bet they wouldn’t like being treated with anything other than respect.
