I have been working at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center full-time for more than 3 yearsPros
They will hire Anyone! Good place for a new grad with no experience.Cons
Some of the "older" experienced RN's look down on the new RN's. Staff has a negative attitude, condescending comments and attitude are the normal. This is called "lateral violence". (If you are a victim of lateral violence you should consider taking legal action.) Senior management just tolerates it. The bad seeds are never disciplined, so it just continues. Most of the decent well adjusted people move on after they have a few years experience. The pay is incredibly low compared to other hospitals in this area.
Always understaffed to the level of being unsafe for the patient and your nursing license!! Never enough Nursing Assistants. 32 bed unit operates with one Nursing Assistant when it should have 2 - 3. This means NA will only take 2 of your 4 pts. So RN has to do total care on Two patients ( all vitals, all bathroom, clean all poops, empty trash and linens. Zero help with this patient, no matter the acuity). Then when the other patients need help NA is not available because he/she is too busy with other pts, overloaded.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Take appropriate corrective action with your experienced staff. Stop playing favorites. Lateral violence should be zero tolerance!
Attention Unit Directors : Staff your units appropriately for safe patient care. Stop focusing on coming in under budget so YOU can get a BONUS. Do whats right for you patients and your hard working staff for a change.
Cut out all the BS corporate talk where you go through the motions of acting like you hear us and Actually Listen, Then take action based on that feedback.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
