I have been working at Pediatric Services of America full-timePros
Being able to really connect with patients
Working one on one
You are in charge of your scheduleCons
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/benefitsAdvice 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!!!!Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
