A typical day and management
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Smithfield, NC – September 28, 2017
A typical day includes hand-off reports, initiation/administration of medications/blood products, shadowing more experienced nurses during unfamiliar tasks/procedures, acknowledging/carrying out physicians orders, collaboration with other members of the healthcare team, and timely/accurate documentation. I greatly enjoyed working with the other nurses and I was able to learn and observe so much. This is a good place to start, but NOT a good place to stay.
The management was terrible. It would take days, and sometimes a week or more, to receive a reply to an email/phone call. There was little to no interaction between management and those who worked on night-shift. Job positions were threatened based on nothing more than hear-say. Management possessed a hostile and threatening demeanor and did not show necessary qualities that one would expect such as flexibility, logical/rational thinking, fairness, equal treatment of employees, or maintaining a calm/collected manner during times of stress. Management showed poor ability to separate between what was personal and what was professional by often taking out stress/frustrations on employees with little to no provocation.
