Sorry Milwaukee nurses and patients. Our GAIN is your LOSS. This CEO is headed your way. Look out for major changes.... and not for the good of nursing or patient care!
If you have supplies you need to take care of patients.... say goodbye.
If for you thought you worked short before.... get ready for it to get much worse.
Get ready for major layoffs, tell your health insurance goodbye, need that prescription.... good luck!, got a pension plan.... so sorry, but it will be gone shortly.
Get ready for one of the most ridiculous code of conducts... which basicially allows for patient/family abuse of nursing staff like you have never seen or heard of before.
Prepare for the outsourcing of jobs to other entities under the major umbrella of the organization this guy comes from (Goodbye LPNs, CNAs, medical record people, Bio-medical techs). Oh, and don't expect forwarning... you will arrive at your job and work for a few hours and security and police will show up to take your badges and keys and see you off the property with a warning that if you come back on the property you will be arrested.
If you have flexibility in your schedules, like 12 hours, weekends only, etc... say goodbye. Welcome to 8 hour shifts and every other weekend and you can never get a "set" schedule to plan anything.
Expect to get written up for those little things like coding a patient (you didn't get pre-approved overtime for that code... shame on you).
Expect to model your organization like the airlines... because they have the best safety record. (Forget the fact that the services they provide are terrible.)
Expect your morale to plunge to a level you didn't know existed, and then some more. Expect to be told on a daily basis how horrible and terrible nurses and your nursing care is.
Expect to shut up, smile, and take it! Keep this in mind... like all CEOs he will be a short timer... he will wreck havoc, and go home with a smile.
