      Pros

      We have received 2 cost of living raises in the last year.

      Cons

      We have to use our own personal PTO for holiday pay. If you do not have any PTO built up, you do not get any holiday pay; therefore, the day off for the holiday is just a day off without pay.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good hours, 3 twelve hour shifts a week

      Cons

      Current management creates an uncomfortable work environment by ignoring the concerns of many of their nurses regarding improper practices occurring in the unit and unfair treatment of their own employees. Current management treats each employee differently based off of their personal opinion of that individual, rather than focusing on the quality of the care the nurse is providing to their patients. This is unfair to the employees as it creates unclear expectations of the standard procedures each nurse is expected to follow when providing care for their patients. This is detrimental to the quality of care the patients are receiving. Each nurse is being held to a different standard based off of the personal opinion of their superior, which leads to inconsistencies in how patients are treated depending on the nurse. These concerns have been brought to the supervisor's attention by multiple nurses on multiple occasions, yet they continue to be ignored and the issues continue to persist.

      Pros

      Pays nurses more than Sanford health

      Cons

      No raise in past 3 years. Patient and employee safety concerns are not addressed appropriately. Unsafe patient to staff ratios. Several employees on my unit are crying during each shift due to work overload & short staffing. No effort or incentive for retention of current employees. They have cut every corner to save themselves money, such as no social workers, chaplains, wound care, or palliative care on the weekends. I consistently feel that my practicing license is in jeopardy when working at this facility.
