Management never follows through with what employees ask for. Management is in their offices and don't seem to ever visit people on the floor to see what we need. They just don't care. They choose favorites in departments and let them get away with everything, while others are left to do all of the work. Asking HR to help doesn't help. They always act like there is nothing they can ever do.

West Boca Medical Center is a great place to work. They promote within, I felt as if I was always challenged and given opportunities to advance myself and appreciative for working with and for such a great company.

If you’re able to adapt to extreme micro managing, this is your place. This location is extremely stressful with no team Effort. We went from a zero turnover rate to 100% once this person has taken over. Money is good, however not worth the type of environment you’d be working under. Beware. Sometimes things aren’t always about money. Time off is almost impossible, and if approved they make certain you know that they can take it away. Highly suggest you look elsewhere unless you are willing to become someone’s robot.
Called off when census is low or sent home after patients are discharged and slow on units. You have to take PTO or not get paid. Other nurses you work with are nice and helpful. Large turn over. Minimal PTO hours earned for 1st year and 2nd year not much better. Cafeteria food is very expensive and needs to be upgraded with better food selection. Positive aspect is working close to home.
driving time to and from work
staff sent home a lot; have to use your PTO, and eventually you have no paid time off for your vacation

Working at West Boca Medical Center was a great experience. even thought is a small medical center, it was a great place to work for. Most people were friendly and happy to be there. about 10 of my coworkers had been working there since the hospital first open its door. about 35 years ago. That says a lot for a work place.
Team player coworkers
I was working night shift. Thats why i left and one specific indian supervisor that hates people.
Up until the last 2 years I was pleased with working there; however I was not working in the West Boca Medical Center per se, I was in a Tenet offshoot medical practice. I worked often a 10 hour day including going over reports, prescriptions, patient charts. This was along with seeing patients at the MGMS90th percentile. My half days often ended after 4-5 PM, and I could work up until after 8 PM on my full days. The most enjoyable part of the job was patient care. The least was medical records, slow information with regard to labs and ancillary test results through the new EHR system, and constant employee turnover.
Security Director (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – July 9, 2017
I worked for an outstanding role model and supervisor within the Operations Command.
My transition into the field was seemingly smooth. And although not under the provisions, nor the control of the Operations Director, I was placed into a role without any formal training and/or guidance.
This was the role and sole responsibility of the security firm under which I was originally hired; this company served as a third party/contractor to the medical facility.
i loved the people I worked with, great location. Hardest part of any nursing job is being able to multitask and be quick yet efficient . I learned a lot since it was my first nursing job, they did give me a great 12 week icu program where I went to class and was also able to do on ands practice in the hospital shadowing a nurse. At the end i was able to manage my own pt and i had to pass an icu exam to be able to be on my own.
