Great opportunity for experience as LPN

Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee)
Dothan, AL

I worked at Southeast Alabama Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou will get some invaluable experience working here. It is under guidance of the Joint Commission on the Accreditations of Healthcare, of which this facility does adhere. Also good experience as far as how things should be done. LPN's work along side of RN's and are treated with equal respect from administration, RN's and physicians.

ConsPay is lower than other jobs in the area. Evaluation packet to get a raise was time consuming lengthy and redundant. Raises sometimes go on hiatus. As a med-surg nurse you will frequently have a high nurse to patient ratio sometimes as high as 7:1. PCA/CNA are not well staffed on floors sometimes as low as 4 to a 42 bed floor. Staff turn over rate is high.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaff your floors adequately to ensure your patients proper care and your employees an ability to do their job as nurses and greatly reduce stress. And for God's sake pay them...you do make enough money as evidenced by how you spend it. It is a poor excuse for you to expect the level of work you do for the amount of pay you give and then have the audacity to criticize when your expectations are not met, shame.

Bad experience!

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Dothan, AL

I have been working at Southeast Alabama Medical Center

ProsThe nursing staff is very nice and helpful to work with.

ConsPay is awful needs to be in this decade! The nurse techs and nurse aids are very disrespectful. Management does nothing for this. The insurance is to expensive and we have to wear white uniforms which gets dirty too easily. Oh and no one has gotten a raise in 2 years. Bad ethics.

Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate the pay scale and make sure to give raises every year! Listen to employees and atleast try to take these things to heart. If you don't have nurses you don't have a business!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
