The workplace culture is that the nurse is responsible for everything. The most difficult part is not having the tools to perform your job and no additional staff to assist you when you are in need. I love taking care of my patients and providing them the education to navigate the healthcare system.
Arrive and review patient assignment, research and study patient chart prior to report. Obtain report from co-workers and introduce myself to patients. Review tasks and medications for patients and help in patient care.

Floor nursing in general can be overwhelming but on this floor there is a great group of nurses that come together to assist each other through the nights that were tougher than usual. Management was great in accommodating my schedule while I was attending school. Loved self scheduling.
medications were free under health plan, dental and vision were great, self scheduling, flexible management on this floor
health benefits were not the greatest, high cost to visit doc, very stressful, very busy floor, not good at hiring before the busy season starts

Corruption is the best word for this place. HCA has a history of it and BH follows that lead. The stories I could tell would shock most people enormously. Management also staff splits and lies about the staff. There are many safety issues and HIPPA violations.
Lots of excuses from management why we can't make the improvements that are needed. For example-new instruments that sit there unused for 9 months because of lack of staff to implement them. Technologically lacking. Management does not do enough to help staff do their jobs better and smarter. Not enough staff, always asked to help out because of managements lack of staff planning.

Work hard for little pay. It's a good job if you have two incomes. 32 hours is the most hours you can work. register patient in the ER, on your feet the whole eight hours 30 min. lunch with no other breaks. Working around doctors and nurses to get your job done.
I've been working for this company for 2 years. HCA has a union which has completely screwed me out of 500 a month. Terrible company. Terrible management. Terrible employer. The focus is money, not patients. Whatever makes the most money for their shareholders including cutting compensation for all staff.
