I worked as a CNA for Atrium Health. We were woefully understaffed all the time, but we all tried our best to work together and make it through. I was PRN and only downside was they clearly didn't pay attention to the days I absolutely could not work because they would message me every single time asking if I could work that night.
What is the best part of working at the company? Taking care of patients and their family What is the most stressful part about working at the company? Understaffed, little to no upper management support, put in unsafe work environment due to lack of training, and communication! What is the work environment and culture like at the company? Toxic most days, constantly told to take care of patients in which case, new grad RN’s aren’t trained to manage their care. Also patient to staff ratio is unmanageable leaving patient at risk for harm and RNs at risk for malpractice. What is a typical day like for you at the company? 12-14 hour shift with little to no time for lunch/dinner breaks, constantly asked to care for high equity patients with over a 1/4 plus of the staff having no idea how to care for this patient population. Care event reports are not encouraged, but frowned upon.
What is the best part of working at the company? Taking care of patients. It bring me so much joy What is the most stressful part about working at the company? Working conditions What is the work environment and culture like at the company? I had a mental breakdown. I have mental health problems and nobody cared. They pushed me out and I was an employee for 9 years I recently resigned
I was a coder at AH. My team was good but everyone was guarded wrt knowledge sharing, hardly any collaboration. In order to learn more I always volunteered to cover for someone when they took PTO as that was the only way I could develop my skills. Multiple requests to leadership to work on other specialties to learn more were ignored. This was not because I was bad at doing my work. No support from leadership to grow within the organization. Leadership is only concerned about their bonuses and higher management only concerned about revenue and not fixing problems related to database and software which made it harder to do our work - this could be because of multiple mergers because for the last 3 years they did not even have annual performance reviews.
My experience with this employer would have been 95% positive if not for the merging of departments with the main facility. At that time many people left and things became ridiculous.
