    Free parking is too high of a cost to make it worth it.

    I have been working at Trident Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Free parking, close to home,

    Cons

    The work environment is set up to encourage a task oriented process rather than the use of the nursing process. This is a very bad place for a new grad to start out. Although a new grad will learn how to juggle many things at one time. The staff is confused as to the difference between uncontrolled and sometimes deliberate chaos vs high acuity. There is very little team work in my location of the hospital, even to the point where if your patient has a change in medical condition you may be on your own to provide a good safe standard of care. I was advised not to work here due to the "reputation" in the community, but I really thought I could make a difference, But you can't help those who don't know there is a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your foundation is on a fault line. It will crack! Take pride in your institution, hold staff who are not following the standards accountable. Eating in the patient care area and fake nails on staff members are unsafe practices. You need to really look at safe staff patient ratios. 16 pts for one tech and 6 pts to 1 Rn on day shift too impossible to give good care. I'm in shock there are not more falls. Think about cleaning out most of managers and start fresh.
