UMMC IS THE ONLY LEVEL 1 HOSPITAL. AND HOLDS SUCH A HONORABLE AND WELL RESPECTED REPUTATION, FOR HAVING A HIGH REGARD FOR THE HUMAN LIFE...HOWEVER...During my time at UMMC it really could have been better. Appreciation plays a HUGE part in life, not just work! But when you do your job and at times somebody elses, a simple thank you would be nice. The lack of staff, favoritism, laziness, sarcasism and personalities clashing was a bit much. But,the rudeness,intimidation and some of the remarks that have been towards some of the families by SOME of the staff, ( PCTs,nusre asst. LPNs, & RNs) at times, me soooo mad. That's what I had the biggest personal, heartfelt problem with. I'm only speaking for my dept. And those that I worked with. NOT EVERYONE was this way. But I can count them all on one hand.
So, I'm not here to say DON'T join the UMMC family.(KEY WORD FAMILY) If you are genuine, caring, patient, and want to make someone else feel better, your NEEDED. If your just in it for the money, or because "ITS A JOB"...Just know....WE ALL KNOW WHERE WE HAVE BEEN BUT NONE OF US KNOW WHERE WE ARE GOING, OR WHO MAY HAVE TO CARE FOR US OR SOMEONE WE LOVE!!!!!
And my advise to the "UPPER MANAGEMENT", COMMUNICATION!
Talk to your staff, ( we are bedside) talk to the families, and patients that can. Get a better perspective of things😕
Exercise, and patient appreciation
LACK OF......patient concern, staff, and "teamwork"
