Registered Nurse, Surgical Intensive Care Unit in Indianapolis, IN
Great place to learn, but always horribly understaffed
After 4+ years working for IU Health in the ICU/Critical Care world, I can confidently say that they no longer value their employees and are focused predominantly on the bottom line. While patient care standards remain as high as ever and care teams work diligently for their patients, middle and upper management have lost touch with what makes a workplace a good workplace. Units are constantly understaffed, resources are allocated in an unreliable and unfair way, staff turnover is constant, and only new graduates are hired to replace outgoing senior staff. Management does not have an active or helpful presence on the units, and have lost their ability to advocate for workers. The corporation's demands on bedside staff are unreasonable, unsafe, and unmonitored. I've learned a lot from my time at IU Health as a Critical Care RN, and am truly sad to be leaving such high acuity patients and opportunities to learn, but I simply cannot stand by as IU Health relentlessly tells their employees (by the decisions they make) that they aren't valued.

Great job, really enjoyed working my jobs within iu health. Had pretty good management and always enjoyed co workers. Would recommend iu to anyone. Health benefits are great. Several other perks of working for IU
Understaffed and underpaid
You can go anywhere else and make more money as a RN in the region, they tie the hands of your manager to how much you are allowed to be paid. My manager, in an effort to keep me, referred me to HR to see if they could do anything about this but they just gave me the run around stating that there are future plans to make pay more competitive within the area, stayed PRN and 2 years later, even in the pandemic, they are still only just discussing what they are going to do about making pay more competitive. This company hires travel nurses for 3X the pay of their staff nurses as a bailout because they are so understaffed patient to nurse ratios on a medical floor may be 7:1 on the regular even though you are told otherwise upon hiring.
