    Unsafe nurse:patient ratio

    Advice to Management

    This "great place to work" turned out not to be so great. The pay is decent, not enough to win loyalty. My concerns when unheard and unaddressed. Save your time, benefits and vacation pay are not worth the endurance of patient abuse and deaf HR ears
