RN (Current Employee) – Goldsboro, NC – November 24, 2018
Not a good place to work or being a patient. Disrespectful to military community and families. The very definition of the Peter Principle (promoting to incompetence). Many of the nurse managers only have worked at WAYNE so seeing the forest despite the trees is impossible and the old school way of hierarchical leadership is very much in play at this organization. Most of the nursing staff leave due to lack leadership so there is a large amount of travelers present. This place could have potential but the leadership is lacking.
Teamwork with frontline employees
Management does not follow vision or mission/ no empathy from management or opportunities for growth
no team work. very over worked and under paid. you get a 30 minute lunch out of 12 plus hours. all the nursing assistants are over worked and do not have a minute to stop and help a coworker. the nurses are busy and do not have time to help you. it was an everyday norm to come in and have 15 to 20 patients to bath by yourself. physical therapy would come around and get everyone up in the morning and then leave the floor for lunch. most patients were ready to go back to bed before physical therapy got back. so on top of all the baths, call lights, feeding patients, helping the nurse get patients settled in from surgery or admissions you also had to put patients back to bed. no matter how big and heavy your patient was it was an act of Congress to get help. the nurse wasn't going to help because most of them think they are too good for any nursing assistant duties. supervisor was nice and fair about holiday schedule but she would always side with nurse on any complaints. if nurse complained on you then you got called in the office and got in trouble but if you told on nurse it was ignored and sometimes turned around on you. this is the worst job I ever had.
Central Sterile Technician (Former Employee) – Goldsboro, NC – April 22, 2018
Central sterile is a fast paced job that requires dedication and attentiveness. It also requires spending free time working and it can be a lot but it’s an amazing position that has tons of opportunities for advancement. Highly recommended
The manager counseled people for being out due to deaths in the family and then she turned around and stayed out for a sick cat. Talking about double standards. People working 8 hour shifts get the same break time as someone working 12 hour shifts and some get more time. That’s egregious. 12 hours is a long time on your feet and you’re only promised 30 minutes. God forbid you take more
you only get a 30 minutes break for a 12 hour shift
A typical day at work would include getting the rooms setup and the first set of patients over for surgery. Dealing with the different doctors, nurses and scrub techs can be a bit of a challenge but knowing you got through the day and your patients were well taking care of is the most enjoyable part of the job.
