He had a year evaluation on May 20, 2003, in this he was rated a 1 for not following directions.

The following year May 21, 2004 Bennie had improved tremendously and got all 2’s on his yearly review and got a 3% raise versus the 2% he got the year before. And in the 3rd year May 20, 2005 he was still improving, so after the incidents in 2003 Bennie made great improvement after being reprimanded for not taking vitals and he has not had a problem since. On February 7, 1997 King Lovell put in an application to work at Patton – Fuller Community Hospital. On February 20, 1997, King Lovell received a letter from Patton – Fuller Community Hospital offering the RN Staff Nurse position.

King official start date was March 17, 1997. King Lovell received his annual employee evaluation in 1998 by the RN Staff Nurse. In his general evaluation different job specifics were evaluated. King in 12 different occasions was late and his dependability was unacceptable. For the first evaluation, King was informed to enroll in documentation classes that were going to start within that month due to needing some work. Another occasion there were two occasion were the wrong patient almost received wrong medicine.

Due to that incident, King was instructed to take a refresher course on medication administration that was being offered in July. On August 12, 1998, King Lovell had a corrective action form by human resource personnel. This was the first conference, King was continuing to be late to work, violating the attendance policy, receiving complaints about rude behavior towards thedoctor, failed to sign, and continuing to have medication errors and not helping other co-workers. King Lovell received to verbal warnings on July 10 and August 2 but the problem is still occurring.

King was informed by management of the following: It is expected that you will be to work on time. It is expected that you will show courtesy to staff, physicians, patients and their families, rudeness will not be tolerated. It is expected that you will complete all entries in the patient’s record and that you will properly sign all notations at least once on each shift. King received another annual evaluation in 1999, where his attendance, attitude, and dependability were still lacking.

Due to lack of improvement over the last year’s evaluation, he was terminated. The files show due diligence was followed and given in different occasion by informing King Lovell to take additional classes to improve his job performance and was also given verbal warnings to improve, but the employee failed to show improvement and continued to lack. On March 10, 2007 Louise McFate applied for the position of Director of Infection Control at Patton-Fuller Community Hospital.

On May 9, 2007 Louise McFate received a hire Letter from PFCH offering her the position of Director of Infection Control with an official start date of July 11, 2007. On October 12, 2007, Louise McFate received her 90 day evaluation and received a rating of 2. 0 (Acceptable) in all areas. On January 14, 2008, McFate received her 6 months evaluation and again received a rating of 2. 0 in all areas. On July 14, 2008 McFate received her first annual review and received an improved overall score of 2. 17.

Unfortunately, on November 7, 2008 Louise McFate received a corrective action form stating that the Joint Commission issued a Request for Improvement on a needle disposal violation found during their visit. Although this is McFate’s first and only corrective action they did advise her to continue to establish procedures to prevent any further needle disposal violations. Louise McFate did not sign this corrective action form because she did not agree with it and believes she was singled out unfairly because Mr.

Adair from the joint Commission targeted her in retaliation after she declined a dinner invitation from him. This does require investigation from the organization to determine if indeed there was a violation made or if in fact it was in retaliation towards McFate. In the meanwhile, McFate needs to keep on her toes because this still goes in her file and there may not be a way to prove it. According to McFate there is no need for due diligence and they haven’t followed up with her progress or had any other incidents following this one.
