Being supportive of their nurses, a "good job" and "thank you" goes a long way. Listen to your nurses they are the ones on the floor doing the job. When you are in an admin office day in and day out you are blind to how things are running on the floors. Trust in your nurses
Was called within one day of applying online. This is highly unusual as a provider. This should have been a red flag that this company had slim pickings. I was working within two weeks of the initial phone call from the person who scheduled my interview. I am not sure any references were even contacted. Whatever is discussed about your job description in the interview should not be taken seriously. They are not actually interested in treating the inmates!! They will romance you with a higher than typical salary and seem interested in your ideas and visions. Once you start, they expect you to have a conflict with leaving a good paying job verses addressing the corruption and unethical practices. If you are breathing and willing to accept the job you are hired. If you promote high moral standards, good work ethic and safety of patients you will not be employed for very long. They want lazy cynical staff who just want a paycheck. They just need people to fill slots to prove they are honoring their million dollar contract with the correctional facility.
Wasting so much time trying to get care for inmates only to find out the company doesn’t want to treat to many people and really doesn’t care about any of their employees. It took me almost six months to figure out management isn't ignorant or ill equipped. Management was doing exactly what they are trained to do. Keep expenses very low while increasing profits. Your supervisor already knows this. They will bully anyone who starts to speak up for the lack of treatment for the inmates. You will be pressured and start to fear for your job if you advocate for your patients. You begin to fear for your job and your license every day. You eventually realize if you don't resign, they will find a reason to fire you. You will be so stressed out because you have witnessed other excellent employees be walked out with obscure accusations. You know that even if you do resign you now have a blemish on your resume because they will not give you a good referral. A job does not get any more stressful then this one!!
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Wellpath a better place to work?
Make the job about the patients and the staff , not about the profit margin
At times it can be fast-paced, but there are several times when I’ve had done time to work on treatment plans, read literature, and review charts.
