This is a great place to work if you have no life outside of work. The nurse to patient ratio varies from 1/25 to 1/42. The aide to patient ratio is not much better at 2/25 to 3/42. And frequently, due to being consistently understaffed, that ratio becomes 1/25 to 2/42. This means that in addition to the daily medication administration, wound care and endless charting/documentation, nurses are often pulled to the floor to assist the aides. A 12 hour shift can easily last 14 or 15 hours. Administration refuses to bring in a staffing agency and insists on running with minimum staff, going so far as to send aides home when they have multiple units that could use them. It has become sadly obvious that the main focus in this facility is no longer patient care. The staff itself consists of those that are "lifers" that, despite everything that they see going wrong, are devoted to their patients and coworkers and those that last a few days or weeks before they randomly stop showing up for their shifts. This facility would be a great place to work if the staffing allowed for more than subpar patient care.
The patients and most of the employees are great
Way understaffed with no apparent plans to change
