    Pros

    The Nurses. Strongest, most resilient group of nurses. The nurses on my unit are always encouraging each other through the madness to focus on WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR PATIENTS vs administrative/financial/basically NON-NURSING type issues.

    The nurses I've been honored to work with keep me hopeful about the future of nursing culture and HOW TO PASS THAT ON TO THE NEXT NURSE LIKE THEY DID FOR ME.

    The Patients. Love meeting and working with patients from all walks of life, keeps me on my toes. The patients here have challenged me to see things another way or accept that my understanding is not even required sometimes, I just need to respect the patient-- plus helped me strengthen my collaborative and patient advocacy skills when coordinating interdisciplinary care.

    Cons

    Relationship between nurses and "CORPORATE". It's getting harder to believe that 'corporate' has any RESPECT for its nurses lately.... A lot of feeling like we are being kept in the dark, nobody ever seems to know what's going on (even those in charge), and not only is it brewing the risk of MISINFORMATION, it is killing the morale.

    And a half-hearted attempt every once in a while of management trying to find out why the nurses have been closed off lately and 'what can we do to make things better' meetings-- it feels like we are being asked the questions but nobody is hearing what we are telling them, just going through the motions. Even updating us that there hasn't been any changes yet but yes, we know this is a problem... That type of open communication the hospital was improving on is for some reason quickly going the opposite direction.

    This is pretty much leading to a mistrusting relationship very quickly from the nurses' POV, which is disheartening because I love this hospital and feel loyal to it. But lately the nurses are coming into work with worsening nurse-patient ratio, more of nurses leaving-- I've noticed the nurses on my floor are so stressed out and overworked but expected to just go on about our day mindlessly, which we do end up going about our day but not mindlessly at all.

    Simply hiring more new nurses isn't going to fix staffing issues and we all know this is why NURSE RETENTION is so important.

    Pros

    The working relationship between RN's & MD's is excellent. Pay is slightly higher compared to other Atlanta hospitals.

    Cons

    Old, dirty, leaky building that is full of mold. Management slaps band-aids on problems to make themselves look good for Joint Commission, then lets it all fall apart after their visit. It is impossible to care for our patients in the way we should without proper resources. Dangerous staffing shortages, yet no concern is shown from the higher ups. Outdated everything. Beds rarely even work properly... I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Your nurses are overworked and miserable
