Suggestions for improvement

  • UM manager needs to develop objectivity over favoritism. Ver Hateful

What I like about the company

NOT ONE THING. Revenue is the bottom line. Patient care is so far down on the totem pole, it is nonexistent

What I dislike about the company

They make fun of their patients, they are noncompliant in so many JCAH standards and, as a result, if you are an RN it will fall to you, administration is secretive and cliquish, Very heavy administratively in spite of a desperate need for direct care staff, peers will back stab you at a moment's notice to advance their position, advancement is not available, nurse managers have no clue how to perform direct care nor do they care about what does or does not occur on the units, numerous JCAH violations, the environment of the entire center is hostile. they will fire you at a moment's notice, they have no desire to listen to an employee's suggestions at quality improvement, LVNs supersede RNs, their medical records remain on paper, many professionals never or infrequently document on true patient status, the idea is to defraud any insurance they can as opposed to promoting pt health and discharge, Leadership feigns ignorance to the fraud and not admitting to acquiescence to allowing a significant federal crime, HR records are falsified to support their accusations of you, do not expect a positive performance appraisal as they are all subjective in order to give a raise of $250/year

Support from management

Expectations are not realistic, have been told by management "it's my way or the highway," and have been informed "we are not authorizing any continuing education, that is on your own time."

Teamwork

Teamwork is nonexistent with management and management is dismissive at best; with other staff members there is teamwork and very good communication with one another.

Freedom to work independently

Management says they will not micromanage, yet they do the opposite.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Senior colleagues are not always appreciated and supported.

Career Development

I was told that continuing education was to be completed on my own time; I work 8-5 M-F, most professional development training is conducted during normal work hours. I recently requested a 1/2 day training, that I am paying for, and was told I had to get "permission" first.

Overall compensation for your work

GET IT IN WRITING, I was told when I was hired that I would get a certain salary once my internship was up, that was not the case at all and I am making less than many of my co-workers, who are fully licensed.

Office / Work Environment

The offices themselves, in the unit I work on most often, the temperature varies greatly, one day hot then next everyone has to wear their jackets, there is not enough computers for everyone to complete the demands of the job, do not consistently have the necessary equipment to perform my job, yet when I purchase these items I have not been consistently reimbursed, was promised a certain items when I moved to my new position and a year later I am still waiting for these items.

Environmental Friendliness

Minimal at best, we have a company come to collect items that need to be shredded, other than that we are not eco-conscious.

Work-Life Balance

I have a salaried position and it is not uncommon for me to work 60 plus hours a week. The management is indifferent if you have a family life or a life outside of the job.

Company Image

No.

Job Security

We are told that we are expendable.

Workplace Safety

I am not sure if it is OSHA compliant or not. They do maintain mandatory on-line training on how to prevent accidents in the workplace. If you are in a salaried position, this is on your own time, if you are hourly then you get compensation of a few hours to complete the training.

Challenging Work

There is not enough time to complete all the work that is given.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity in regards to people, yes. Diversity in regards to ideas and opinions, no.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay employees what they are worth (which is why so many leave) and hire people who have a sense of ethics.

What I like about the company

I like my co-workers and the location, it is easy for me to get to and most days from my job.

What I dislike about the company

I dislike the lack of ethics, micromanagement, condescending and dismissive demeanor from management.
