The management is CLUELESS!!! There are so many infractions that are taking place in that hospital that I am surprised that there aren't several lawsuits against them!!! Some employees are hardly putting any effort into their job. They just clock in to gossip and get paid for it. They clock out without finishing their job so the patient suffers. Then there are the few who really like their jobs and they don't walk out that door until they finish their jobs. I think that we need new management. Someone who will be willing to get out of their office and see how the hospital is really being run. And hopefully put a stop to the financial WASTE and the patient NEGLECT. And it is NOT just the nursing staff. It is ALL departments.
Calm and friendly.

In our department it is not very good. I don't know what it is like outside of the department. I hear rumors about other departments. But, can't speak on fact. I had a friend working in another department who quit for the same reasons I am posting. So, even though Altru tried to have a good work environment I think you have too many "older generation" people here that won't allow it to change. Until they are gone its going to be hard to change the environment and culture.
