Cardiac Monitor Technician/ Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Cleveland, TN – January 17, 2019
Uncomfortable working environment. Not very welcoming of new employees and change. The moral of everyone always seemed to be negative. The employees seemed to be there because they had to be, not because they loved it.

Stressful to say the least. The equipment was in terrible working order. The roof leaked and was dropping pieces in parts of the building. Poor working conditions, in the summer it was hot. Management had no intention of fixing air conditioners. There was often flies buzzing around rooms and at the nurses station. Poor lighting in pt rooms. Staff with unsafe nursing practices. With staffing ratios management expected falsification of documents in order for the job to get done. There wasn't any other way. It's sad because it didn't use to be like that.

As a CHS facility this organization is governed by a culture that decreases, sometimes stagnates, the ability of supervisors and managers to bring forth necessary changes to give the patient care staff members the necessary resources to effectively do their jobs.
the most horrible place I have ever worked. the hours are long and they pt/nurse ratio is dangerous. they don't care at all about the patients or the employees. they don't care that the patients aren't going to be cared for as long as they get their money. the products we had to use were cheap if we had what we needed at all. the last nursing officer we had stayed about 2-3 months before she got out. the doctors were unhappy and complained all the time.
Love my job, just needs better job security. Constantly worrying about if you have a job is not fun. I have a great boss and great colleagues, just need to make sure I have a job tomorrow. Tennova is great!
All the equipment was broken and took forever to get it fixed and worked on. When something went wrong you were always demeaned and told that you done it wrong. Everyalways came through the grape vine instead of having a departmental meeting
