    Organization culture is negative, hostile and high stress, High turnovers, dissatisfaction, weakness and tension. Employees have no respect each other or their superiors.

Employees are intimidated and even terrified of the thought of change.. Organization do not value employees, no raises or incentive. Hard to fire bad employees, loud, rude, disrespectful. Lacking good customer service and bed side manner skills. Organization is struck, no vision or structural of how to get there. State budget seem to always effect pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment of accountability within the organization. Sustain a sense of competency. Increase employees salaries not just nurses, doctors or executives. If you take care of your people they will take care of the organization. They will come to work with a better attitude have something to look forward to the future because the working toward an reward. The system is broking, change the pay structure for the employees who are lower then Executives, CEO,s. Adapt to a new hiring system instead of the traditional way. Enough of hiring individual that pass a test with no customer service skills, bad attitudes no drive or no vision or just needing a pay check. Change the system of removing employee who refuse to follow rules and procedures.
