    -Can be cancelled or sent home if patient no longer needs a sitter
    -Certain patients can really strain you mentally...you have to sit in a room with them for 8 to 12 hours, can not leave them alone without someone coming to relieve you...

    Pros

    It gives full time employees opportunity to return to school which can be good for young nurses looking to advance their career

    Cons

    Underpaid. The staff is significantly underpaid compared to other hospitals. you are frequently forced to work understaffed. Administration states they have an open door policy but they really do not. They could care less about nurses's grievances. They discuss Complaints with person you have grievance with before they ever bring you in.

    Advice to Management

    Make the salary match the amount of work expected from all staff. You cannot expect one person to perform the job of 2 sometimes 3 people and not compensate them for it. This is why so many of your nurses are opting to leave. It's too much!
