MADISON, WI.-- I AGREE 100%!!!!!!!! Stay AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Management likes to play the favorites game. If you are well liked you can have time off and pretty much do anything you would like without recourse. However, if you are not a favorite be prepared for write -ups, the hardest work schedules and patient assignments, normally 1:5 nurse:patient ratio. Additionally be prepared for inconsistent pay raises. You can have excellent performance evaluations and receive less than the cost of living raises($0.28 - $0.35) You will find nurses who provide the poorest care and spend the least amount of time with patients are rewarded to the greatest degree($1.50 - $2.00). Advertise for nurses with 2-3 years experience and hire many new grads. Further, these nurses are placed with the most critical patients. Agree with the exploitation theory! Do not bother bringing things to the attention of supervisors like: Copying previous shift assessments; no patient rounds; unconscious patients lying in stool and urine until dried on sheets; -- most do not care! IF YOU DO -- you will be tagged as a complainer. Little Secret: If you do hire on here, pretend that you are either gay or lesbian and you will not be written-up or reprimanded for anything.

OMG...you couldn't have summed it up any better..this hits the nail on the head....horrible company to work for...all about the money they are for profit....you put your liscence on the line everyday...no help with critical patients on drips, wounds,lots of comorbidities and management only see the wrong in what u do...the family is always rite...no backbone from management to help u. So glad I left....lots of new grads with little time on the floor and left to fiend for themselves.

Facility not only prides itself on 'bullying", but ENCOURAGES it & retaliates if this is reported to Chief Nsg Mgr .....mgt is nothing but a pathetic joke......if a pt or staff reports something, it is automatically "assumed it is true" & u r put on probation (i.e: nsg assist says u took too long to help her when all she did was sleep & play on computer all night & YOU get written up)! Acuity is horrible.....some staff sit & play on computer all night because their assignment's are so easy & others run all night to try & keep up.....one of the nsg aides on 7P shift reports u to mgt if u don't kiss her butt & mgt threatens to put u on probation for this......u r automatically retaliated against for reporting ANYTHING that has to do with the "click" the mgr there protects & covers for.....most of the staff r really nice but watch out the miserable b..ch on 7p & don't bother reporting her bullying 'coz it will only get YOU put on probation! I hated it there.....it was soooooo disgusting.
