- 0Nov 19, '08 by eddyThey've gone downhill big time over the last 9 months. I used to work there for my agency, but they decided to go exlusive with a new upstart agency that undercut pay. Since then, the place has been a joke to the career agency nurses in town. Some of the worst nurses go there because they are the only ones willing to work for such pathetic wages.
I would avoid that place like the plague until they change their operations.
- 0Jan 12, '09 by mediadv8Quote from hotdog19dGlad to see other people from other parts of the country who experienced what a MESS Select is. I thought it was just our hospital. OMG - the nurses are mad, frustrated, cursing and quitting like you wouldn't believe. They can't even keep the agency nurses. They focus more on corporate BS in the THREE solid days of orientation that you MUST attend, then throw you to the wolves. Patient ratios are ridiculous. The charge nurses that we work with are constantly in TEARS, cursing, crying and frantic. THEY"RE going to end up stroke patients! They actually fired our secretary, who was an absolute GODSEND (brilliant, fast paced, great worker) because she was kidding around and put her nurse friends nickname on his locker ('douche') WITH his knowledge. Now we have only ONE unit secretary and she only works 6 hours a day. After that, WE have to answer the phones, put in our own labs, etc. etc. Shows you how much they DON'T care about their nurses - I'm already overworked and now I have to play unit secretary? One would think they could have just repremanded the poor girl. I'm only per diem and am looking elsewhere for another nursing job, which there are no shortages of. I'm not going to put MY license on the line because this place is, apparently, a national hot mess of a hospital. Glad to read the posts - I thought it was just our hospital. If you want to keep your license, enjoy nursing, avoid working 2-3 hours PAST your shift every day giving report, and being generally happy, do NOT work for Select Specialty Hospital........ANYWHERE!I took care of a few pt's that came down for surgery and that place is a zoo! I wouldn't want anyone I know staying there, and you couldn't pay me enough to work at Select.
