Wish I could be more positive but I cannot....
Emergency Department Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Taunton, MA – September 5, 2016
Worked as an ER nurse for over 7 yrs at Morton. When sold to Steward, many changes took place but notably the decrease in supplies snd staff necessary to do work in the department. The morale of the staff was low, short staffed alot of the time with 4 to 6 heavy patients given to one nurse. With these numbers, mistakes could be EASILY made and nurses cant be expected to give the patients the care they deserve. The pay was good, especially those nurses with 10+ yrs experience. Unfortunately, people did not work as a team and that is disheartning as in an ER, you need your coworkers to back you especially in critical situations. Wish I had more positive to say but I just do not.
Pay was excellent for staff level nursing, free parking, good ER doctors
Nursing staff not working as a team, staffing problems, ie not enough licensed or ancillary staff in the ER, too many patients to one nurse, lack of supplies, lack of fairness and respect from management and also coworkers towards each other
