Management by fear and intimidation

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

ProsHave worked with some very good people that actually care about what happens to patients and their families.

ConsAdministrators and HR people are always right. There is a knowing and doing gap in their
ideas. They say that they want to promote excellent customer service and encourage open airing of ideas. However, in reality expressions of ideas leads to being targeted.
The unethical behavior of managers runs deep. They will backstab their employees and write them up for ridiculous things just to show that they are THE BOSS.
The education is pitiful. They rely heavily on healthstream courses for education and little
hands on for nurses is done. They also do not want to pay for educating their nurses and
send e-mail that these courses must be done while working.
So, how do you give the excellent care to patients while trying to do your heathstream
education course???? Appears to be a conflict of interest and opposite of what their mission statement is in relationship to putting the customer first.
The upper management benefits by extras like bonuses --etc.. but the workers bees rarely get any increase in their salaries.. Yet, they are the ones meeting the so called goals.
Many nursing managers have little nursing bedside experience and do not know how to
run their units because they do not know what they are doing.. They are intimidated by nurses that know what to do and will put those nurses out to dry on a rack.
Very unprofessional nursing management runs unchecked throughout the hospital in all areas.
The overall work environment is unsafe and hostile which is promoted by administration and management..
It could be a good place if they would be picky on who they picked for managers and
had a supportive management style instead of destructive style.

Advice to Senior ManagementBecome updated in how to manage. Read THe no -sshole rule book by Robert SUTTON.
Realize that vindictive-hitler style management is destructive to productivity and retention of employees.
Educate yourself regarding monetary management in relationship to the huge cost to a company when if continually loses nurses and other employees that are well trained.
The cost of an experienced RN walking out the door is over 100,000 dollars...
Look into the hospitals that are having high turnovers of nurses or employees or increased
dismissal of trained employees.. or high use of agency or traveler nurses..
Hint that maybe the administration and management is not good!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Close the bridge of the knowing doing gap====MAKE YOUR ACTIONS HONORABLE-
for the words of this company mean little--Talk is cheap .. and their is a lot of meaningless
talk in this company.
MAKE YOUR NURSING MANAGERS AND OTHER MANAGERS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR
ACTIONS..WHEN THEY DOING SOMETHING AGAINST POLICY THEY ALSO SHOULD BE
ACCOUNTABLE.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
