    Advice to Management

    New employees or current employees need to be trained in registration or they should be hired with prior experience. Management shouldn’t “block” employees from transferring out of the department to another position in Jefferson. Management should tell new employees that there will be days where there are little to no patients scheduled for procedures and that if they take off, they will have to use their personal time or take the day with no pay. They need to work on their problem solving skills and treat all employees as equals. If you “stand up” for yourself they will take it as a threat and treat you differently. My boss use to stand and talk to my coworker for 15-20 minutes while I was there, then go in her office across the hall to email me something she wanted me to do. I would get sarcastic emails from her if she didn’t understand something I was saying, instead of either asking me for clarity or coming to me and asking me directly. Her office was literally across the hall from my desk and she would rather email me than speak to me directly. Any other employee, she would go straight to them. My other boss would always come to me with problems I didn’t know about, accuse me of doing something I didn’t do because “someone” told her they saw me do it. These women need better managerial skills and need to learn how to be better bosses.

    Pros

    good to get "your foot in the door"

    Cons

    Racist staff, would not recommend if you are not white nor black; there was a non-black/non-white nurse with a heavy accent and everybody made fun of her... there are black nurses with heavy accent but other nurses don't pick on them. The nurses only pick on the non-white, non-black minorities. Some nurses also lash out on externs for no reason, but only to non-white, non-black minority externs. The nurses also complain about things that externs aren't allowed to do (i.e. one nurse complained about externs not drawing blood, when we are not allowed to draw blood). Personally, I have never felt this discriminated at a workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Make your staff take some racism seminar, please. They really need it.
