In a nutshell, corporate from Irving swept in and without conferencing with the medical staff fired the administrator and relieved the DON from her duties. With the exception of having her come in once a week to monitor wound care. They then proceeded to slash staff hours, frequently canceling shifts to operate on a minimum number of nurses and, at times, no CNAs or unit secretaries. I left when I realized that the staffing the corporate representatives were requiring was creating an unsafe situation. If a patient were to crash there would not be enough licensed staff to run a code. The hospitalist have ceased admitting patients Sus to the cuts in floor staff yet corporate is blaming the nursing staff and using their nurses as scapegoats. I spoke recently with a CNA who is looking for another job because one of the doctors strongly encourages her to find alternate employment because this facility may not last much longer.
