    Pros

    Easy to leave your job 'at work', No productivity pressures.

    Cons

    1)Notion all providers are the same (except for pay). There is no tirage. Primary care/family practice NPs and PAs are expected to see and manage the most medically complex patients that come through the doors (patients with multiple chronic comorbidities...AIDS, CHF, renal and liver failure) while the internal med physicians are getting paid more than twice as much and may be seeing someone with a history of asthma as a child and no other medical issues.
    2) Not NP/PA friendly. As a "midlevel" you will see more patients than the physicians and more complex patients than the physicians (who have no other medical director responsibilities) and get paid less than half. You have to have 10 charts reviewed for punctuation per month while physicians have no peer review at all.
    3)This more applies to the correctional health in general... Almost every patient you will ever see wil ask you for narcotics, benzos, extra mattresses, personal shoes,...You will see more patients who abuse prescription drugs on the outside than who abuse illegal drugs, and they feel entitled to get them in prison so they can be quite argumentative when you say no.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to understand the concept of 'scope of practice' and triage. Expecting your providers to have to care for patients outside of their scope of practice is dangerous, causes lawsuits, and bad patient outcomes. Figure out a way to incentivize efficiency and productivity rather than rewarding lazyness. There are providers who easilly see more than 15 complex patients in an 8 hour day who make less than providers who see 4 simple patients per day because you are paying the laziest prividers as much overtime as they want. I see this every day at my site... providers hanging out well into the evening doing absolutely nothing but sitting in front of their computer collecting overtime and chatting it up. Their excuse is "well I'm just slow"...Privatization is supposed to solve this problem by eliminating these types of unneccesary employees and expenses. Drop the term "Midlevel" (its offensive).

    Pros

    Sometimes the only thing that gets you through the day is the support of your coworkers to not leave in tears.

    Cons

    The HSA is out of touch and has no medical background whatsoever and the DON is doesn't care about the employees, you feel as if you don't matter and if you don't like it you can leave and there is someone who will replace you. The turnover rate is more frequent than anywhere I have ever been employed ever, burnout is always the culprit. The workload is impossible to complete in the 8 hour shift, the provider over rules your decision or flat out doesn't care about your medical assessment gives orders and leaves the nurses to blame for negative outcomes. There is always fear instilled by management for disciplinary action for minor infractions, unless you happen to rub elbows with management staff then even major infractions are dismissed further alienating that employee and further destroying morale as a whole. Management micromanages the employees they rule by intimidation and fear, of being written up or fired. You will never get a lunch break but are required to clock out for 30 minutes or face disciplinary action for not doing so, no matter the excuse it will be a working lunch in every sense of the word.

    Advice to Management

    Believe your employees when they have an issue and treat them like people. Lighten the workload, it is totally unrealistic to expect the nurses to complete all the assigned tasks in a shift. Praise your employees for a job well done, treat the employees with respect and at least pretend to value their opinion. Support your staff.
