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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Good compensation, very educational if you like correctional medicine

    Cons

    Company administration changed completely and so did their ethics

    Advice to Management

    Please change the administration at the top. This was a good company to work for when I started. As soon as the merger took place, the entire ethics and outlook of the company changed. The original owners cared about inmate health as much as their money.. no more

    Pros

    Guaranteed hours and guaranteed job

    Cons

    Nasty co-workers, medical staff and security. Lacked leadership. Policy and procedures apply for a few and not to all.

    Advice to Management

    Take suggestions, listen to suggestions and if something is not working actually fix the problem.
