Get the charting computerized. Writing out the care plans is unnecessarily time consuming, cumbersome, archaic and unbelievably bad for the environment. It also does not foster good, easy communication among staff.

Report answer

Pay your field nurses more .from the Rn's to the HHA's .The management need to get from behind their desk and go out more to see what type of traffic, patients, environment locations we have to deal with on a daily .Never pay new incoming employees a higher wage than those who have been there 10+ years.It's a slap in the face to those who work hard but continue to deal with frozen raise(3-4 years) then make a big deal out of giving 2%."We take care of each other " has now become management takes care of themselves . If you have multiple GOOD nurses quitting due to a bad manager don't replace the 6 good nurses ..FIRE the one BAD manager! When corporate comes to the office stop asking the managers how are things... go out with the 8-12-16 hour shifters who are on the front lines and deal with patients to get a good feel whats going on. Sad part is that No one in corporate will read this and make any changes.
