While contracted at Riverside Kaiser I witnessed a baby being dropped from a scale on postpartum and several babies receive the wrong breast milk! Horrible nursing skills and lack of patient safety!

Wow. I resigned from Kaiser in June to take an ER job on a military base to be with my husband. That didn't work out I am back and I finally got rehired by Kaiser and start next month. I could not wait to get back in if you have never worked anywhere but Kaiser you may have a negative attitude. But go try working somewhere else and nothing different. I think the Kaiser is awesome their pay for benefits you don't like that department here in transfer. It's that easy that's what I love about Kaiser. Guess you don't know what you have until you lose it

I worked in ophthalmology which you can only start as on call...meaning if someone calls out OR you can offer to cover a shift for someone-which I had no idea you could do so I went weeks without working sometimes because the other person hired the same time as me , did know this. The only way you work your way up is seniority. There was a few people there at least a year and they were barely starting to work more than 24 hours a week

I left one year ago because they used me for 7 out of the 8 months there. 2 our 2 schedulers left which left me to schedule for the ENTIRE IR department which I was not trained for. Way too much stress for one person. Others ended up trying to help but I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I did it for self-preservation. Others that were hired after me, never came back after one week. I did stick it out for 8 months until 2 people were trained. Went back to a lower paying job because of them. What a shame. They lost a great employee but their loss.You never know what will happen......

Hostile environment and management and compliance don't act. Zero tolerance doesn't mean anything!
