    I worked at Boston Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a diverse population with interesting medical cases.

    Cons

    Inadequate leadership in nursing. From the CEO, DON on down to even the staff on units. Mismanagement of time on staff RNs part and management in general. Each unit I floated to, the culture was complain first, overrate acuity. DOH, JCAHO guidelines aren't followed properly or staff has no/limited knowledge of them. As one reviewer said there is a unwillingness to change, however management needs to address staff more appropriately, as opposed to derogatory. Lack of respect all around. During my tenure multiple units have been closed or minimized but there is never a benefit to Nursing only to the management. Time off is seemingly difficult as a great majority of staff have been there for years. Layoffs, forced retirement began to a larger extent with the current CEO. Both campuses have unions that do not fight for staff when the need it. multiple co workers, RNs tried repeatedly to contact MNA, with limited avail, regardless their situations were not helped in anyway that would justify union dues. During my years there, there were multiple clashes with staff and patients. Whether it was a socio-economical disparity or racial disparity can be argued (with both being correct answers)

    Advice to Management

    The constant turnover needs to be addressed. Staff should be able to have more input and management should not only listen but act. The level of respect and trust needs to be renewed among all disciplines. Management is held somewhat on a pedestal and unapproachable by staff. Sensitivity training for ALL staff including discrimination training need to be done on a regular basis.
