Suggestions for improvement
- Better PTO, Staffing insentive program to cover open shifts-OT pay is not enpugh in areas of constant shortage, Higher pay increases based on performance per staff who actually work with employee-lower to mid level supervision performance evaluations. More HR involvement on units talking to staff to improve employee satisfaction, what we want or need. HR has become the penny pincher for the CEO and not about employee rights and satisfaction. The balance has shifted toward employer and profits. HR doing more community hiring events, panel interviews with floor staff involvement interviewing new team members. More events to make employees feel valued. Our employee appreciation lunch is cafeteria food, we want to see out family, enjoy time with them. Other companies offer $5 seabreeze tickets to a company work picnic, another 20 Darien Lake tickets for work picnic. We need to get off site, enjoy life and feel appreciated so when we go back to work there is motivation to perform better.
What I like about the company
I love my patients and the core team of nurses who have been there sticking it out caring for eachother from covering for shifts working doubles and 12 hour days to give eachother breaks, days off and making sure we dont miss lifes important family moments to feeding eachother, moral support and rest.
What I dislike about the company
The management team says they have fought the VP for additional help, pay insentives, raises and relief has been rejected due to budget costs. This team of extrordinary people working to fight addiction is burned out and beaten up. Being seperate from the hospital the building is run down, dirty, broken counters, furniture etc. The hospital is beautiful and clean. The pay and insentives are slightly better inside the hospital. This health care facility has become more of a business, not caring for employees, taking away benefits and low to mediocre pay. We are asked to do more with less daily. We are taking care of people but are not cared for. We miss meals, bathroom breaks and take constant verbal abuse about what we do wrong, dont do enough of and need to do better. We lose paid time off when we cant take it and reach our cap for staffing issues that are constant and unrelenting. In the past 4 years as a nurse Ive received benchmark raises bringing me up to what other nurses make totaling about 1.00 over four years. Its a slap in the face from a company making millions if not billions. The was no hey you worked hundreds of extra hours, havent called in sick and did tons of tasks to help keep the init afloat raise. No thank you for the hundreds of comments on patient surveys that said I was amazing, I made a differance, I actually made them feel cared for. No positive recognition except for the co-workers and patients I care for which keep me coming back. It feels like this employer feeds on that and uses profits to line CEO and upper management pockets, making money off our backs, sweat and tears. Giving no recognition or compensation back to employees result of men in high ranking positions in a predominately womens career field. Security officers predominantly male at the location make nearly what some nurses do. I am a nurse and find it deplorable that caring for people is not valued. Nurse week is now hospital week, nurses cant leave patients to enjoy anyway.
