Worst company in healthcare
Nursing Float Pool (Current Employee) – Woodbury/Maplewood – June 29, 2015
HealthEast is by far one of the worst companies I have ever worked for in the healthcare field. In my first two months of employment, SEVEN clinic managers, and directors have resigned, over a dozen nurses, and countless doctors - all quit. Why? Poor management, favoritism, lack of staff, poor patient quality, just to name a few. It's sad really. A company built to help people that continually turns patients away for being even just 5 minutes late for an appointment, has little to no policies in place, and quite frankly - horrible quality/infection control that will make your skin crawl.
Mind you the pay is good compared to others, but certainly not worth the headaches. There was very, very minimal training when starting a position. When staff asked for additional training, they were told "that's not how we do things around here." If you ever need help or an answer to something, expect to get 7 different answers from 7 different of your 'managers,' and expect the final answer to change in one week. Employees are continually picked on in front of other staff, driven out of their positions, or pushed to their limits so badly that they ultimately resign. If you are not a favorite, or if you're someone new, expect to be treated that way. There were so many red flags for me well before I even started my position. I should've listened to them. I never would have wasted my time.
HealthEast's motto should be, "Everyone is replaceable - employees and patients alike."
Awesome co-workers, decent pay with great health insurance benefits
Management (or lack thereof), Poor patient care, No policies - they make up rules as they go and they're different for "favorites"
