    Poor upper management and new director in home care area/loosing many good nurses with new management. Not enough staff therefore increasing amount of on call required.

    Pros

    Co workers are the best of the best.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities and respect for the expert RN from management

    Advice to Management

    Don't ignore your Expert Nurses and don't fall into the trap of being Magnet where too often upper management and leadership takes over (because it is easier). Committees should be lead by the "Boots on the Ground" relating to real issues focused on the department and only guided and supported by Leadership.

    Pros

    Benefits, some co-workers, pretty much unlimited OT if you want it.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. No formal policies are given to you when you start so when you vilolate something you didn't know you did your fired. You can appeal it within 30 days in HR but HR backs up mgr who didn't give you policies in the first place. So short staffed that nurses sometimes have 6-7 patients which is very dangerous. One of my co-workers told me they are short staffed. I asked her if it's our floor and she said it's the whole hospital. They try and call nurses in to our floor to help out and nobody came in. They declined. They are all burned out. Place is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all policies are given to employees. Paper form when they start. Don't just terminate someone for not following policy when you didn't give it to them at start date. Don't expect employees to read minds and know rules that aren't explained.
