unrealistic expectations of employees
LVN Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 1, 2015
Always understaffed and supervisors expect you to do everything from med pass for 30 patients (only one of me) and at the same time take on admissions, answer phones, do treatments, call in labs, schedule appointments, and the list goes on! It's unsafe and unrealistic. Also, we are more of a psych facility because this company does not care what kind of patients they accept. This company is all about making money so they don't want to hire desk nurses or med aides to help us and accepting all kinds of patients that should be in different types of facilities such as lock down units, just so unsafe! The only reason I've stayed as long as I have is because I adore the people I work with! But am considering changing jobs soon, if only we could get some help around there, or change their expectations of hall nurses.
great people to work with, made lots of friends
