I enjoy a day that is filled with 22-25 patient visits, I dislike a day that is filled with more than 30.

Pros

Working by myself means that I know exactly what has been done and what needs to be done and all of my emotional energy is used for patient care not workplace drama.

Cons

There are not appropriate measures in place to end a work day. People keep coming and begging to be seen. It is difficult to leave the clinic, use the rest room, take a break or end the day as there are always sad eyes looking at me... please can't you fit me in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Technology must certainly exist that can be implemented to assist with the solo provider's ability to step out of the clinic for a break or lunch or end the day. It would be nice if each day didn't end with emotional angst.

    Pros

    The pay!! Our manager just got us a $10 increase in pay! WOW! I also love the people I work with. Everyone is very supportive and caring. You get to make your own schedule too!

    Cons

    Long hours... 11 or 12 per shift. Sometimes you can split these with other providers however.
    Too much "other" work to do. We are expected to do a lot as NP's. My manager made this clear when I was interviewing and I agreed to it! I guess I can't complain about it too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More support for the NP's would be awesome!

    This grass is green because there is a lot of fertilizer in it.

    Pros

    The company still matches the 401(k) at 3%; they still reimburse CME, for FT, up to $1500.00 annually, as well as reimburse DEA License application. Liability insurance is covered. Your colleagues are supportive.

    Cons

    In CA full-time is considered to be 30 hours per week! that is with working four 7.5 hour shifts; there was a change to this from three 12 hour shifts.

    In a look-back period of 14 weeks, if you are FT, and you work an average of 25 to 29.9 hours your status will be changed to regular part time and you will loose your FT benefits and be placed on COBRA.

    Although the schedule is supposed to be "flexible" it is not totally. You are expected to be available to MC over any other employment commitments; if it is found out that you have another job the “final” posted schedule will be left to you to find another provider to work the shifts you are not available to work. “Final post” are constantly changing throughout the 6 week period. Finding someone to work a shift for you is difficult because a lot of the part time and casual staff has either been laid off or quit due to re-structuing and job instability.

    There is supposed to be a marketing department in MN, however when you are in the clinic you are supposed to walk the floor of CVS to tell customers about Minute Clinic; corporate believes that more customers will be gained from that rather than traditional advertising. There appears to be a lot of tail chasing because services come out without advertising and the providers are then supposed to drum up interest in the service and ultimately business.

    When new services are rolled out there is no check-off process to assess the providers level of competency with that service, i.e. sprains, strains, sports physicals.

    At one point we were told with sureness MediCal (Medicaid) would not be accepted because of their reimbursement amount, we are now having to turn in paperwork to be O.K.d to be a MediCal provider; you do not know what to believe from what you are being told.

    Corporate may say they are interested in hearing from the providers but they make decisions about practice and do not ask about feasibility before initiating it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If corporate is really interested in hearing the truth from the providers provide a forum without our immediate supervisor present, believe it or not, there is retaliation that does go on.
