    Advice to Management

    The leadership and management should have continued training. These positions should have individuals with experience and management background through training and education. Complaints should be followed up and customer service should become more of a standard priority. Employees should have the right to discuss workplace issues without upper management relating the information back to other employees. There needs to be a survey, website, or link for employees to directly state problems, issues, and concerns that are NOT being solved or acknowledged. Majority of the employees have related complaints and are not able to share concerns due to the lack of confidentiality and lack of accessibility shown by management. Confidentiality needs to be addressed with management and reassured to employees.

    Pros

    The pay is the second highest in the area, and St. John Health System is one of the only hospitals that are still actively hiring in comparison to other local hospitals. When an emergency arises with a patient you can usually rely on assistance from your co-workers.

    Cons

    Management is rarely there, and even when they aren't taking time off they are almost never on the unit - so there is little to no support when questions or problems arise. The new RN residency program is badly put together and ineffective. Each floor/unit generally only looks out for itself, there is no teamwork or sense of unity within the hospital (and this is a smaller institution). Within my unit itself, there is a clique-like atmosphere in which newer employees are not made to feel welcome, with the exception of a few co-workers of course. Employees will conveniently "forget" to carry their spectralink phones (always the same people) or refuse to answer them. Various employees are constantly texting or making personal calls and ignoring call lights. Many RN's will reschedule tasks that they don't want to do on their shift and stick the next shift with them (and the night shift has less RN's, more pts, and more admits/discharges) and then proceed to sit at the nursing station gossiping with friends after they've given report, while waiting for the appropriate time to punch out.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a stronger presence on the unit! Occassionally take an actual patient assignment to remember what is is the RN's have to endure every day. Offer positive feedback. When an employee comes to you with a problem regarding a co-worker's errors, try to find a resolution other than ignoring the situation. Fix or replace the damaged dynamaps, bedside manual sphygmomanometers, spectralink phones, and computers so that we can do our jobs more effectively. Post the upcoming schedule sooner, rather than just one week before it is due to start. Start writing up the employees who just sit at the nursing station texting while call lights are going off left and right.
