Pros: No 12 hour shifts
Cons: Poor management, no raises offered, too much workload on a single person
The staff that provides direct patient care is a pleasure to work with. The management personnel do not truly care about staff. It's a family affair, meaning most of management at this facility is in some way related to the administrator, friends, or once upon a time a former co-worker of the DON. The DON has a funny way of showing appreciation. Most of the time the DON rarely speaks when passing you in the hallway. In addition to not even acknowledging you, having a sick family member or even yourself being ill does not concern the DON. You're expected to report to work. The scheduler decides who has days off when requested. Only select few are granted time off requested. Reprimands are the daily usual at this facility and are not done so privately. Unit managers pass on work to floor staff and do not offer help at all during emergencies or when staff feels overwhelmed. You cannot even count on the managers to answer a call light, offer a patient help to restroom, or ask if anything they can help with. This place do not give raises and when there is an opportunity to grow, the outside public has a better chance. I would not recommend anyone applying at this facility.
