Poor Management; Cares more about money than patient safety
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Illinois – October 29, 2016
I worked for OSF for many years. At first it was a wonderful place to work, but then they restructured their management system; it all went down from there. Management cares only about money, not its employees, and will even risk the patients' safety to save a couple of bucks. Also, if the management doesn't like you, or you are an experienced nurse (ie. more expensive), they will find a way to push you out, make you quit, or even find (or fabricate) a reason to fire you. They would rather pay a new, inexperienced nurse less money than pay an experienced nurse more money. In addition, for months before leaving, the nurse to patient ratio was to the point where it was very unsafe. Many nurses were upset that they could not provide the best patient care that they knew they were capable of, and were even worried about their licenses. The salary is the worst out of all the hospitals in the area. The only good thing about OSF were my coworkers.
The coworkers in my department were amazing.
Management, patient safety concerns, favoritism, salary; pretty much everything.
