A typical day starts with first being understaffed. They NEVER have enough staff! You are then bombarded with nothing but paperwork. Your entire shift is constant writing because they do not have electronic medical records. The patients are allowed to do whatever they want and management will tell you to let them do what they want. There is NO support from administration and the rules are ever changing. There are a few people that have been there for years and they do nothing but cause trouble for new staff (backstabbing, two-faced, manipulative individuals). There is also favoritism and certain supervisors are allowed to do nothing and get away with it. The health insurance is pretty good, but that's the only thing they have to offer. If you decide to work there (please, don't!), Once your shift is complete, you are so tired and they will call you constantly to come in on your off days. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT take the sign on bonus because you will not stay and they will want you to pay it back. Oh, I forgot! Their differentials suck! If you work nights and it's the weekend, they will only pay you the weekend differential, not the night differential. Who does that???
Low pay, Poor management, No support, Too much paperwork, Lack of structure
