Cafeteria is open at midnight. The doctors are mostly easy to communicate with and easy to get a hold of
For starters, none of the staff will bother to help you out when you get an admit. It's all you. The management doesn't back up its nurses at all. I've seen great nurses get run over by management because of what one patient said about them. They basically will take a lying patients words over their nurses' word. It's pathetic. You never get the time off that you request. You are never in your home unit because you get floated everywhere else. And I was never oriented to any of the other floors, so I was just thrown in and expected to know everything. When you email or call and leave a message for the educator or your manager, it is never returned. They don't acknowledge you at all. The hospital cares too much about money and patient satisfaction. They don't give a damn about their staff.
Advice to Management
Show some respect to your nurses. Have their backs. Pay them more because the pay rate at this hospital is atrocious. You will never maintain a high ranking with such poor treatment of your staff.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McKee Medical Center in March 2011.
I went into the medical center and met with the main pharmacist there. He was mainly interested in my background and why I wanted to work at a pharmacy. He did not seem to have many high standards in what knowledge and what background I was to have in working at the pharmacy. However, the pharmacist is a very likeable guy and I greatly enjoyed working for him.
