Suggestions for improvement

  • I would revamp the current administration staff, get rid of all of upper management and start over. I would also get rid of most of the nursing supervisors and replace them with nurses who still work at the bedside part time, so they understand the needs of the nurses and not the needs of upper management, which never aligns with the needs of nurses. I would provide adequate staffing on all units. I would hire more housekeeping staff so rooms would get cleaner faster, in order to facilitate last minute needs of the patients (ex. transfers to the ICU), which also speaks to more adequate staffing. I think more nursing resources is always a good thing and there can never be enough. Making sure your staff feels supported and appreciated goes a long way. I would also provide cheaper parking options to staff.

What I like about the company

My current manager is very in-touch with nursing staff and stands up for the nurses under her direct supervision. She is approachable and works with you when problems arise. The nursing supervisors never listen to nursing when it comes to patient placement issues or acute staffing issues, they seem to have their own agendas and the plan changes from supervisor to supervisor, but my current manager stands up for her nurses and their needs. The nursing staff and support staff I work with is incredibly welcoming to new employees and there is always a helping hand around when you need it.

What I dislike about the company

The nursing supervisors never listen to nursing when it comes to patient placement issues or acute staffing issues, they seem to have their own agendas and the plan changes from supervisor to supervisor. The upper management is very out of touch with the day to day issues of the hospital and has little respect for it's nursing staff. After the nursing strike in 2017 there has been a lot of hostility and resentment between the two.
