I have a question for you nurses out there. I went to an orientation today and left feeling like I needed to have a psych. evaluation before I went to work there.
This hospital has about 240 beds, not big or small. The gal from HR went into policies on sick, lateness and other HR issues. I left feeling like I was signing up for prison. It seems like more and more hospitals are so rigid in their policies. I didn't feel like I wanted to work there. I am human and I will be late once in awhile as well as sick.
Do we not have enough stress in our work? The hospital I worked at in Huntsville started a policy of so many points for each late, call in etc. My husband didn't have this kind of rigidity in his work as an engineer, nor my daughter at her work (computer analyst) nor my son who works for the school board.
I really wished there was a way to find out about the type of policies an institution has before committing to it for work.
Is it just me? What do other people think?
