Florida Hospital has a motto of caring for the patients, but they do not care for the employee. They do all they can to make the departments work understaffed yet wanting first class treatment for their patients. The management and CEO have forgotten they were once the little people and have no respect for their employees. The best part of the day was talking to patients and listening to what their needs were and to help obtain them. But that was difficult as we were under the numbers game. I worked very closely with Centra Care and the Cancer Center at the hospital and had a great working relationship with them. I have learned that I must respect our patients and continue to do my very best to serve them.
we did cart filling ,IV's and odder entry, also Pyxis filling and that was my favorite thing to do ! I also learned to do TPN's. I enjoyed working with my coworkers we were a small Pharmacy and got along GREAT!
Working as a nurse for two years, my most vibrant memory of this place is when the hospital was at 115% capacity and continuing to admit patients. I worked on a cardiac unit that had non-cardiac patients in "rooms" that consisted of beds in our hallway. They had a small divider for "privacy", a communal restroom (even for patients on isolation), and no working suction or oxygen. God knows what would have happened if we had a code for a hallway patient. Nurses were an afterthought as patient load was increased without an increase in staffing. And they wonder why our HCAHPS scores are so low? Nurses expected to provide world-class service with bare-minimum resources. Upper management only stopped placing patients in our hallways after a patient went to the local newspaper detailing his hospital stay and rightfully subjecting the hospital to bad publicity. Outstanding unit management did everything they could, and was one of the few reasons I genuinely loved to work there. However, an apathetic upper management with no regard for the work force of the hospital is not a sustainable business model.
Learning hospital, excellent as a first job for new nurses.
One of the things you learn is that you are wasting your time at a sub-par hospital
You can get along fine as long as you don't question management or have any allegations against you, then you are guilty until proven innocent and you are terminated with no explanation or opportunity to present your side of anything. Management only cares about making profits, any way they can.

There are good benefits however, at a high cost. This job asks for social workers to participate in a role that was never taught at the University i.e. setting up medical equipment for Patients, working with home health care, little talk with Patients. So basically everything I went to learn about regarding clinical practice is lost with this job as we are not using the education we were taught. You basically learn how to do this job fully from training and working at Fl hosp. there's no prior education on how to prepare for this job...I think they are not using the social workers for their skills, it's mostly for the title.
Less micro managed
Not doing any clinical work, doing things I never went to school for
