Frustrating

Nursing (Current Employee) Wichita, KS

ProsFacilities are nice, good equipment, supplies.

Cons#1 problem is Administration !!!! Constant turnover! They get in the way of meaningful change. Stuck in bureaucratic autocracy, no empowerment or trust of the bedside people doing the work. Focus is on rules/discipline, satisfying regulatory agencies over solving patient care delivery issues that would satisfy patients and nurses. If they'd just listen to their bedside caregivers, we do have the answers. They focus on the splinter while the log goes unattended. A nurse is a nurse is a nurse here. They'll float you anywhere no matter what your specialty. Too many mandatory, waste of time meetings. Loyalty and human dignity are only one way, they don't apply to the employees. They're trying to correct their un-empowering culture but preaching it to the nurses instead of mgmt!! Without mgmt changing their un-empowering ways, empowerment can't happen. If you're conscientious and want to bang your head against a wall, work here! If you're the type that comes to work and goes w/o really caring, you'll fit in fine here.

Advice to Senior ManagementRead the cons. If mgmt would go on a year's vacation and let us do what's needed. I think we could get somewhere.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
