Unprofessional and Dissppointing Experience
Patient and Nurse (Former Employee) – VA – March 3, 2013
From the outside and inside, SRMC attempts to portray their "Spotsy" attitude, which they will claim is exemplar to other facilities; however, don't judge a book by its cover. What a joke! Their census fluctuates so much- the hours aren't there, and getting cancelled in a career that's suppose to offer such stability...disappointing! The morale is just as bad as most other places because, as usual, the nurses are overworked and understaffed-yet, expected to take care of their "customers"--because that's what patients are nowadays! How can you be a nurse to someone and provide excellent care if you are constantly worried about stepping on someone's toes. It's not the Hylton people....and so our job is to help you get well-not increase the likelihood you will decide to extend your stay! Management is horrific and they are so busy trying to win other hospitals' patients over, they miss the whole idea of fantastic healthcare! Not to mention, many of the units haven't been designated with a speciality, so instead you have a pediatric/oncology/med-surg/etc floor...because that makes a lot of sense, right!? The upside, they are newer and just want patients who can afford to pay, so their equipment functions for the moment. Other than that, they won't last and be in the class of other disgraceful hospitals before too long! Don't go the extra mile down the highway for care, you are far better off at another facility! Bottom line....get over yourselves SRMC!!!!!
terrible for nurses, turn people away, dwindling census
