Jail health as a program is very important to Dallas County corrections. The program is not as organized as it can be, too many people slip through the admission process to the jail where many conditions are not identified or treated before arriving on the floors.
taking care of 5-6 patients at once even when being charge nurse patient care and satisfactions is very important management was not always that good very fast paced and stressful, did not always get help from other staff members but PCT's were very helpful managing several patients at once and covering the whole floor the gratitude and positive attitudes of the patients and their families, very good resources
I loved working at Parkland. There was always a learning opportunity. So much room for development and growth. Very Nurse friendly environment. If I would not have relocated I would still be working there.
A nice place to work especially serving people in need. Working ther at Parkland is quite challenging and you learn and update your professional skills more often. Team work is very important and practisec

Parkland is a great place to work lots of hands on experience, once you work here you can work anywhere. They have great benefits. Credit Unioon on Campus.Parkland serves the community and help our patients to qualify for some type of insurance. The have people that donates to charity as well to help the homeless.I have never known them to turn patients away.
I would come in at 6am see what's on the board and the meals set up . I learned to always be respectful to all the patients and visitors. My management was great they communicated very well. We had a lot of different cultures in the work atmosphere It fun working with other cultures you get to learn a lot of things.
There is great job security. You work in teams and everyone gets to have input. I support the equipment the hospital needs for patient care. There is a lot of walking and lifting. Managers are very supportive and open to suggestion.
I enjoyed working here. The staff was great! The floor I worked on was high risk,but the staff working on the floor made the day fun. We took care of isolation patients which required added precautions, such as wearing isolation gown, shoe covers, caps and gloves before going into room. Even with its negatives of wearing the gear, the work on the unit was exciting.
Nice work envirnoment
Some of the RN's are not team players and they are lazy!

Parkland is a good hospital and a good place to work, however their lacks a work life balance with lack of flexibility. The hospital pay is above average but raises are sucked up by rising insurance cost

The management there has too much favoritism. And when you have a problem with another co-worker they'll believe them over you. And you can never go and could have a talk with the management about situations that is going on on the floor. But there are some co-workers that you will get along with there are some there that will stab you in the back.
Dealt with patients face to face depending on the area that we worked in. Interacted with patients trying to make them feel comfortable and calm during a tough situation. Learn a lot of different positions duties while on this job.

There is some fairness for some and not others. There is no understanding from management for emergent issues. You recieve more points of occurences if you call in on a weekend or 2 hours before your scheduled shift. Even for emergent issues, like a car accident on the way to work, even with a doctor's note.

This institution's mission, goals and culture is one that matches with my personal values and principles for the love of meeting the needs of those who are really in need of help and those who could not receive help elsewhere.
A homogenious culture of people from all parts of the world, and accents
