Upper Management is more concerned with their bonuses than patients

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

ProsThe staff providing front line care ( doctors, nurses, health care aides, support staff and most lower level management) are there for the right reasons. Many of these people are putting in hours of unpaid time just to ensure patients are receiving safe care

ConsUpper management has little to no concern for staff and patients. Nursing jobs are being cut and AHS is planning to lay off several RNs over the next 2 years. Patients are being sent home before they are ready. Staff concerns are dismissed and staff is routinely bullied.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest about what your agenda is. Don't claim that patient care is a priority when you are slashing the numbers of RNs and other health care workers

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
