Support from Management
Poor leadership from mid-management level on up. The purse strings have been tightened since Obamacare was implemented, and they do nothing to advocate for the hospital at the state or federal levels. RNs are being replaced at the clinic level and replaced with MAs to do the same job; this creates a less safe environment for patients (refill mistakes, potential injection mistakes, etc.).
MDs in the hospital are amazing, but at the clinic level, they did not treat RNs with respect, and they made RNs feel like "over-glorified secretaries." Really sad.
