Poor management and nepotism galore
Direct Care Associate (Current Employee) – Catawba, VA – April 7, 2018
The best part of my job is making a difference with patients. I have some great coworkers who are committed and flexible. Staff are frustrated and morale is at an all-time low. Staff here do not feel supported. The work environment is unsafe for both patients and staff. Management is hardly visible and not supportive. Nepotism is rampid. State benefits are very good but the cons outweigh the pros here.
If you voice your opinion here you could be targeted by management for retaliation. If you're a yes ma'am type person, you shouldn't have any problems. There are many issues here that need to be addressed such as low staff to patient ratios, staff retention, management competency, aging facility, lack of technology, favoritism, accountability, etc.
There is so much potential for this hospital if leadership changed their philosophy....
