Good place to work! Dedicated staff!
Registered Nurse/ psychiatric / (Current Employee) – Oconomowoc, WI – September 11, 2017
Exposure to many very acutely ill patients. Rogers is requiring staff to do a lot of continuing education, which is appreciated! Every day is different, there are several ancillary staff on unit. Generally.. the culture is good. As is everywhere, there are some staff who work in psychiatric nursing who should not be working with this type of patients. Empathy is a must as well as good boundaries when working with this population. One needs to remind self daily about boundaries! One also needs to remember these patients are ill,..not "just playing games." Because we see the patients for such a short period, one downside is that one never knows how things turned out for them, unless of course they come back to hospital. This happens quite often.
Positive changes happening
When patients stay too long and they start to "slide backwards "
