FMC CAP program

  1. Has anyone had any experience with the Fresenius CAP Program and any positive feedback? My unit is starting this program and the nurses are worried because we are already stressed out with our workloads.

    They make it mandatory? I would not be surprised given that the company pushes their agenda from top to bottom.

    I used to work in a Fresenius chronic unit but I went back to acutes before I had to worry about the CAP program, because if I remember right, you have to be there for a certain period of time before they require it.

    I did see that my co-workers who had worked there longer than me were stressed out by having to do the extra stuff on top of their already busy, busy job. They were making posters, giving little lectures to the techs during their lunch breaks, and all that kind of nonsense, just to earn the points or whatever to climb the clinical ladder.

    I don't mean to sound negative, but I thought the whole thing was just added stress and nonsense, considering all of the other tasks that we were required to get done in a given week or month. I always felt like it was one of those "brilliant" corporate ideas designed by non-clinical suits in office suites.

    I agree now it is just more stressful at work having to worry about more things to do I heard that it was supposed to help out the clinical managers so they don't have as much to do. As usual dump on the middle class.
