    I have been working at Pediatric Services of America full-time

    Pros

    Being able to really connect with patients
    Working one on one
    Flexible hours
    You are in charge of your schedule

    Cons

    Very few if any pay increases
    No shift differential
    No paid time off
    No paid vacation, even if you work full time
    Poor communication between office/CCM/field staff
    Not enough written policies/protocols provided for field nurses! Basically the only policies/protocols are for trach/vent, Gtube...things like that, but that is it. We need policies and protocol for EVERYTHING. I've been here over two years and still hear "if abc happens then XYZ has to happen" but not told before hand, I find this extremely irritating. Provide a comprehensive policy/protocol book for everything your nurses do for/with patients!!!!!
    Decisions made based off lack of knowledge, not evidenced based practice!
    Having to wait for a supervisor to check me off for skills before performing on patients...but I had more experience with those skills and the supervisor had to be trained on the skills before they could even check me off!!!
    No one seems to even read the documentation!
    Taking on the care of a specific patient need but then only by half which then puts the patient /family in a bind and makes no sense
    Poor communication between office and families which then creates problems and negativity that the field nurse is stuck dealing with and without any support from supervisor or office staff
    The field nurses who work VERY hard are unappreciated by both PSA and many patient families - and get the least amount of pay/respect/benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Publish protocols/policies to cover all aspects of patient care
    Provide better pay & benefits to the field staff without whom the company could not function
    Educate parents/families so your nurses are not treated like babysitters/housekeepers/receptionists/butlers while working in the home
    Show your nurses you care and appreciate their hard work
    Provide better training, PSA's training is a joke
    Communication needs to be vastly improved on ALL levels
    Evidenced based practice needs to be used in clinical decision making!!!!!!!!
    Stop tying the hands of the nurses, I'm an RN and feel like a CNA who happens to have a college education more often then not!!!!
