Job Work/Life Balance:
The schedule employees work changes drastically and frequently to meet department goals. Number of weekends, selection of weekends and weekdays, shift days/hours, and schedule requirements can and will change. Employees are expected to adhere to those changes with no regard to the impact to their lives.
Every year compensation and benefits diminish. There is only one insurance company to pick from, the insurance plans are terribly expensive, copays are high, no vision. CCMC no longer offers Education Reimbursement. Free Parking.
Job Security/ Advancement:
Advancement is only possible through a combination of self-funded education and seeking employment in a different department or institution.
A nurse supervises Patient Care Assistants, Emergency Technicians, and Spanish Medical Interpreters. There are no team leads. Supervising nurse does not speak a second language.
Employees are disrespectful. Minority employees and minority patient families bear the brunt of this. Nurses are the main culprits but not all nurses and not only nurses. The behavior is allowed and it is an additional source of stress.
