Unsafe, dangerous hospital
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – El Centro CA – October 27, 2013
I made the mistake of taking a job at this hospital. I found myself surrounded by RN's that felt since the place is out in the sticks they were excused from rules and regulations set up by the agencies that protect the public, having no clue how important accurate I & O is needed on a really sick patient. Incorrect information announced in front of your patient, and the list goes on.
Room air conditioners sucking in the brown air left in the valley after the fields are burnt ,outdated equipment or no equipment at all.
One anesthesiologist in house for the night shift, leaving my OR during surgery to go check on another patient under general anesthesia on another floor, leaving the patient in my room without supervision.
Ignoring restrictions from another doctor that they had been informed of from day 1.of contact before I was even hired.being reassured by management that it will be NO problem, only to have it brought up as a problem at my 90 day probation.
We did not see eye to eye on many issues, at my 90 day probation meeting I was ready to quit, I was not going to risk losing my license from working at this place of horror, I failed probation thank God, that way I was able to collect unemployment until I got my next job at a REAL HOSPITAL.
EVERYTHING from air quality, lack of professionalism, death trap, unsafe, dangerous, too hot
