During our entire Magnet run, they had fliers posted everywhere,
"Magnet, higher nursing satisfaction, better nurse to patient ratio's"
Well apparently their idea of better ratio's means giving us more patient's.
Our ratio just went from 4 TO 6
when giving chemo, this is on a medical/oncology unit.
We have busy medical patient's to care for also when giving chemo!
A 50% increase, and that's nursing satisfaction.
We have lost 2 of our best charge nurses and more are looking for another job.
be a good job TEMPORARY MANAGEMENT HAS RUINED!
awful isn't the word Dukegirl
Dishonest, unprofessional, and zero integrity says it better for Durham Regional management
I just got out of there 3 months ago, from unit 5-1.
I left when as soon as I realized how to know when my nurse manager was lieing.
When her lips were moving!
I wouldn't recommend any nurse this hospital to work at.

I talked to a couple of friends who are still on the 5th floor....but BOTH LEAVING
They say things only continue to change for the WORSE
If you a new grad please be careful...
Durham Regional will tell you what you want to hear,
then after orientation things will change
HIGHLY advise you avoid this Hospital!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
