Typically work short staffed, without getting breaks, which ok that might be health care anywhere. Management does not take active roles in assisting with problems between coworkers even when multiple complaints have been made. Customer satisfaction ratings are all the company cares about, so when patients treat staff badly it is typically ignored. I have learned that health care is a lot easier when you have a wonderful, supportive, group of people you work with closely, so the staff on your shift. There is also a very true ring to the term "shift wars" and I have seen the favoritism towards a certain shift regardless of productivity or complaints. The culture is tense and requires thick skin, it can be difficult to know who you can trust. The hardest part of the job is the disrespect between shifts and at times the roles of staff. The most enjoyable part of the job is taking care of those people who really do need your help, watching someone heal physically and emotionally is very rewarding.
