Pros: you do meet some amazing coworkers ....but sometimes they move on to better things
Cons: short staffed often, double documentation, management is horrible
I'm a natural leader and I try my best everyday to provide health care to inmates who lets face it can be rather disagreeable and hurtful at times. The job is hard and everyday things are said or done that could be upsetting to you.
We are constantly training new staff because management shows such disrespect to its employees. And every "staff meeting" – more... is about what we are not doing..... it is never an open forum on ways to improve.
Recently our D.O.N. and our H.S.A have been cracking down on overtime. I spoke with the regional director on why most of the staff was staying over our allotted time on a daily basis. Two days later I get hauled in the office and told I was insubordinate because I disagreed with something being said. Told I wasn't listening and that they don't report to me. But then told they are glad I bring issues to them and then told me I was one of there best nurse. Ah..what? I felt like because I went to the regional director they had to discredit me and make sure I didn't do it again.
I just got a certificate for a year of service with CCS. I don't think I'll be another year. – less
