Big problems here can't recommend
RN Staff Nurse, Oswego, NY - November 7, 2015
Small town mentality here. Behind the times when compared to bigger hospitals. Employees are expected to cover low census by staying home on call @ $2.00 /hr. You need to use you Vac time or Pl time to make up the lost shift in your paycheck. You will be told this when getting hired but it is very frequent. You have the option to float but it usually means you get abused . It becomes difficult to take real time off if you use up your time sitting home on call. You may be expected to come in, then go home, only to get called right back in. Some employees come in late routinely while others get fired for time and attendance issues. Shift report includes a lot of local gossip. They constantly talk about privacy but if you work here and are hospitalized everyone hears about it. Management needs to be replaced with real management people. Documentation is horrible and seems to be getting worse. Always firing people so you never feel safe in your job here. I could go on but I think you get the picture.
