Cons: everything else
I worked at the cancer center in everett. The management team was awful. They gossiped about staff and patients. TEC claims to act swiftly with HIPPA violations but I witnessed daily RN's, PA's and MA's breaking this law. If you want your medical care private or not be made of fun after you check out, I would suggest going somewhere else. The biggest offenders are in lead positions. The manager there is lazy and too scared to stop it. The facility should be fined due to all the HIPPA violations. One RN was looking up her husbands information, when told she shouldn't due that, stated it was a dumb law so she wasn't going to follow it. Nurses not involved with a patients care go into their charts with no repercussions because the computer system used at that facility isn't the one used clinic wide so there's no way of tracking these violations. The worst part was the way the medical staff said horrible things about patients and their family members. Patients were picked apart behind closed doors. The bullying and retaliation used by staff is in epic proportions. They even had nurses stealing supplies and placing IVs on each other. When one nurse did the right thing and reported it everyone turned on that employee. There was a couple of RN's that loved their job, and the patients they cared for. But they have left the facility and are missed. If one of my family members got cancer I would drive the extra miles to seattle instead of going there. It's all about profit and not patient care. Stay away from that place!
