RN (Former Employee) – Emergency Room – April 19, 2017
I don't normally work travel contract (I'm an RN), but a few years ago was forced to when I wrecked my car and needed some quick money.
I took a 13 week contract at Yuma.
WORST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE.
The doctors own the hospital, they couldn't care less how long patients wait, and they treat nurses like cattle. Once patients are admitted, it's typically a 12 hour wait for a floor bed. Since it's the ONLY hospital for 2 hours drive in any direction, the people in the area are FORCED to go there.
About 2 weeks into the contract I commented on a FB post, and people in Yuma didn't like what I had to say. Enough people didn't like it that they complained to the Medical Center, thinking I worked there (I didn't mention who I worked for, but they assumed)...
Within 8 hours, my contract was cancelled. But that wasn't the worst of it.
They released my NAME AND CONTACT INFO TO A REPORTER, who immediately wrote an online "expose" on me.
I quickly found myself unemployed by my regular job as the "expose" found its way to AZCentral.
Right to work state, they don't need a reason to fire you... except they don't like the fact that you have freedom of speech.
I understand THEY had the right to fire me... but they did one better. They TRIED TO RUIN MY CAREER.
They TRIED TO DESTROY MY ABILITY TO GET A JOB ANYWHERE, FOREVER.
Watch your back if you're considering working there for a single second.
You may find it's the last time you work...
