Pros

Offer better pay and a great learning experience.

Cons

There is a lack of communication between Nursing and Nurse Management. There is lack of support and trust of Nursing staff among upper management. There is a very negative morale in the facility among employees. The corporation does not provides the resources needed to do a quality job. Patient care is not priority.

Advice to Management

Please read your mission statement. Patient care is and should be priority. Give your nurses what they need, please.

    Pros

    Good compensation/wages: good, strong senior management that is focused on the business: internal advancement opportunities both within and across teams.

    Cons

    Health benefit package is standard at best. Some team performance requirements are stressful on personal life. As a growth company, staffing increases don't come as fast as the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder at rewarding employees. If employees are your strength, do things to prove that philosophy. There are little things that can be done to make work a fun place to be. If you are having fun, you don't notice how hard you are working.

    Pros

    The HSA is easy to use and coworkers are very hard working.

    Cons

    Intentionally very short staffed, equipment (vital sign machines, glucometers, computers in which to document) in short supply. Computers are in every room but have been kept out of commission making it impossible to document in real time. Assessments and medication administration must be entered at the front desk computer when there is one available. Care plans from other disciplines have to be completed by the nurses and it is impossible to know what tasks were completed. No electronic narcotic medication station. Narcotics are counted and remediated by hand. All administered narcotics documentation is printed as are the kardexes and MARs every shift. Too many opportunities for errors.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the nurses at the bedside. What's good for them is good for patients. Making the nurse's jobs impossible to do well is not good business practice. Protecting and padding the bottomline today will not pay for potential litigation tomorrow.
