Fact: This hospital is one of the lowest ranked hospitals in the Denver area. Patient safety means nothing to incompetent nurse managers. They staff the units according to a money-making "matrix" and throw the overburdened floor nurse under the bus when something goes wrong. And things go wrong a lot. It's a broken system. As a floor nurse, expect to use your hard-earned BSN constantly emptying trashcans and stocking supplies while monitoring EKGs and standing in the bathroom with patients, sometimes for hours. (Janitors and CNAs are quite sparse.) Coworkers can be nice, but you'll be singled out by managers if you don't keep your head down--way down--and smile, smile, smile.
Clueless, m-e-a-n nurse managers
