    The Staff is very helpful and works well together

    Staff nurses are required to sign up for call shifts. If you get downstaffed and called back in you do not get time and a half like you used to

    Management needs to figure out how to allow employees to sign up for call at home

    Pros

    Campus environment, multiple disciplines working as a unit on many occasions.

    Cons

    Not-for-profit, multi-level management creates barriers to change.

    Advice to Management

    Treatment is the product and the service that the organization provides for the community, however treatment is not the goal of the community- recovery and wellness are the goal. The organization might do well to incorporate wellness and recovery values into its mission to truly reflect the community's needs.
