Very poor conditions for nurses and their patients
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 19, 2017
The management at this facility is solely interested in filling beds, rather than actually providing good care for the patients. The director of nursing has some of the poorest patient care skills that I have seen from management, and therefore has very little insight into what nurses need in order to perform their duties. A lot of favoritism and gossip between employees. Unsafe working conditions due to unaddressed violent outbursts from patients, broken equipment, and poor staffing ratios. The kids are the best part of this job, but advocacy on their behalf will be ignored by management. Many nurses practicing unsafe and unsanitary habits, such as not wearing gloves or washing hands.
The kids are awesome. The pay is ok. Plenty of hours
Uncaring management, workplace drama, moral burnout
