I'm an RN from the Philippines and I am being signed by them after passing the phone interview. Can you please feed me some info regarding this staffing agency. I need some help before I sign the 3 yrs contract they send me. Thank you!
I personally found them very unorganized. They hired me sight unseen simply to help get a case covered. The only reason I stayed with them for even 5 months PRN is because it was 1 day a week with a patient I had been caring for 5 yrs for. They were very unprofessional - while I was filling out a few paperwork to make the hire official - the entire office went to the back of the office for a 401K meeting...without telling the 3 people in the waiting room it would be an hour before they would be back! ( We could hear the meeting and I lived an hour away so leaving and coming back later was not an option) They had 2 nurses show up for the same shift once. They had nurses that did not document any of the meds, wound care, injections, etc and nothing was done about it. I had to BEG for blank MARs for my patient - I wrote all 15 of his meds out by hand each day I worked for the 1st 2 months. They actually discharged my patient's case to another agency w/o telling me and I showed up for a shift. Never did get paid for the last shift I worked. The only good thing about them was they paid a decent wage. I heard through the grapevine that there was a few complaints lodged against them . Anyhow....that is just my experience. So just be careful!
