Hostile, horrible culture, unprofessional managers, avoidable sentinel events on a regular basis.

Pros

Correctional nursing is a rewarding field. Pay is not too bad, accrual of PTO is good as well. Nurses on the unit are great to work with.

Cons

Patient care is non-existent. Denying timely care and medication to make money is sick. Company values look good in the handbook, however not applied in practice. Zero "culture of safety". Management on site are bullies, play favorites, outright unprofessional, overly aggressive, and arrogant. Upper management offsite are either clueless to how the sites are run or simply do not care. Reporting all of the above only results in retaliation and hostile targeting. Inadequate training, zero support from managers when more training requested. Turnover is outrageous, not just with nursing staff but Physicians as well- this speaks volumes!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the offices and spend time at the facilities. Interview current employees and hold all levels of management accountable. Instead of targeting those who speak out, consider the truth is somewhere in the middle at least! Denying treatment and medication creates sentinel events- look at the numbers, they are lives lost! Provide training, if employees request more, allow it. This company is not sound enough for motivational speeches on the corporate level to impact front line staff, try building rapport from the bottom up.

    Merger did not help! Divided culture...worst of two cultures emerging. Very disappointing!

    Pros

    Great local leadership! If it were not for leadership at the local level this company would be insufferable. Leaders at the site and regional levels keep this company afloat. Yet, the corporate leadership is determined to press them into submission of unreasonable expectations.

    Cons

    Senior management is not in touch with reality. When the goal is to make someone an example of what happens if you are not completely submissive to the corporate strong arm instead of mentoring and helping employees to be successful, that is a sad state of affairs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong arm and intimidation tactics do not make for happy, long term employees. Threatening job security to meet unreasonable expectations set by a blind board of directors does not make for an employer of choice!
