Unsupportive and hostile work environment
RN (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – May 1, 2016
Poor staffing, unsupportive and uncaring management who will place you in unsafe, unethical situations that could and will compromise the lives of patients and your license at every opportunity, unrealistic expectations, a "good old girl" culture (old timers rule), declined vacation requests, even if provided a year in advance, hard workers penalized as others will gladly ride off of your hard work and literally sit around gossiping while you suffer, mostly a travel nurse staffed area (in my department who mostly do not renew their contracts) and God complexed physicians who belittle you at every turn....these are just a few reasons to run, not walk away from this organization. Best thing that could happen to them is a Sentara buyout, who, by the way, I recommend highly and cannot say enough good about.
Do not expect to eat or to use the restroom for 12 hours while you are on the clock.
