Poor management, lack of respect for employees, deceptive hiring practices.
Registered Nurse II (Current Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAMarch 26, 2018
ESH is in serious decline. Poor retention of licensed staff leads to unsafe staffing ratios. They advertise as no mandatory overtime yet unwanted overtime is on your schedule and disciplinary action taken if you refuse to work the overtime. Employees have been seriously injured due to poor staffing and training.
You can not plan appointments in a timely manner due to schedules being completed late. Requests for time off often ignored.

Stressful environment to work in. Electronic medical record is not in place.
RN II (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAJanuary 8, 2018
Management is in the dark ages of punitive managing. Rewards or compliments are few and far between. The entire facility is critically understaffed. The turn over rate is high because of mandatory overtime that there is no policy for and because of the already discussed state of management.
Pros
There are very few salaried positions in nursing and there are many state holidays.

the hardest part of the job
RN II (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAApril 18, 2017
The hardest part of the job was keeping my staff safe because of the clientele (criminally insane). When these residents came into our facility they were really mean and did not care who they hurt or what they had to do to get what they wanted. The staff was eager to learn ways to protect themselves and the inmates safe from harm.
Pros
taking care of the residents with a true mental illness
Cons
dealing with the negative attitudes of some of the inmates

Pros
Great job

Short staff and sometimes unfair employee staffing.
