    Pros

    Has the potential to become a Premier Medical Center. The physician's for the most part are great, they come w/a wealth of knowledge, most willing to share this knowledge w/nursing staff & therefore should have a venue to assist in elevating the staff's knowledge base by holding "mandatory" seminar's etc.

    Cons

    Poor management at clinical level. Poor clinical skills assessment of registered nursing staff & retaliation runs rampant throughout. Very Unprofessional. For it to be a "teaching" medical center there is absolutely "NO" teaching being done at the bedside (i.e. Mock Codes, pump assessments) and as a result the clinical practice is "POOR". Their is a "majority" foreign nursing staff from African / Caribbean regions w/different values, ethics on heath care, customer service & loyalty & you often see groups of peoples from the same region kind of sticking together if you point out an area of improvement, something that one of their countrymen need to learn, skills that need to be performed better; you will in fact have a "target" on your chest for simply being a "prudent" nurse. The customer service is very poor & results also in poor work ethic. The foreign nursing staff leaves a perception that they want something for nothing as follows: Night shift allowed to "sleep" for an hour & a half during breaks is unsafe / ludicrous because when they are gone said nurse has double the patient load, just for them to return very sluggish & often times you will witness individuals taking longer breaks & the people that are supposed to be watching your patients "never" get up to check on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanage nursing staff at the clinical level by evaluating clinical practice. Employ assistant nurse manager's, manager's, supervisor's who are going to be accountable & hold everyone accountable. The nursing management team currently in place is very cliquish, inappropriately gossip w/staff which causes division & they do not enforce a "culture" of work ethic across the board. Start over from scratch by outlining the core values & being explicit in informing staff that these are our expectations, which will be evaluated by everyone holding one another accountable, employing professionals to oversee said values, clinical practice that are not a part of said nursing department for more objective, neutral, genuine assessments & enforce through suspensions, terminations etc. Require all nursing staff to punch in and out during breaks and allow only an hour break across the board. These people are exhausting the funding & milking the company for all its worth & if they don't like it then they can leave which will leave room for the nurses who want to work at facility, who want to learn more & grow professionally; and for those of us who are truly dedicated to provided "quality" nursing care.
