Employees are disgruntled and treat the patients like animals. Some of the staff actually provoke patients to be able to give them shots to go to sleep during their shift so they don't have to deal with them. The physicians spend less than 5 minutes with each patient and lack regard for best practice or patient safety. Management and shift supervisors are incompetent and do not help out when the units are busy.
For those thinking about employment...You will be lucky to receive 3 shifts of orientation before you are on your own. Management and co-workers are not helpful and are quick to "throw you under the bus". By far the lowest paying RN position around and they can't keep employees so you will be called in 7 days per week and sometimes forced to work 16 hour days.
In terms of what I learned...I learn from examples. I think examples come in two forms: good and bad. Needless to say, my experience with this facility was bad (an understatement). However, they set an example of how I would not treat employees and signs to look for with a bad facility.
In short, if you're looking for employment...RUN!
