Is their any Western Australian Nurses here who have had the please of being stuffed around by NurseWest?
More importantly, do you think they have any employees yet? I have not seen one NurseWest nurse in all the hospitals I work in.
If anyone else is interested, NurseWest is the government "agency" of nurses that are payed less than agency nurses, but have other benefits, listed below.
The hospitals are no longer allowed to contact the nursing agencies to book nurses. They have to ring Murse West who then rings the agency. So, we now have a middle man.
All the management positions are filled but still, where are the NurseWest employees????
When NurseWest runs out of Nurses, then they ring the agency for more. Since NurseWest has come in, I have been getting more work with the agency!!!!!
I have been stuffed around by nursewest, but will not post it here as it is pending investigation.
The Western Australian ANF journal says it will take 4 or 5 years to take off. Meanwhile, these people are getting paid to run an organisation that has no nurses. Such a waste of the health $$
But, how many nurses do you think will take a pay cut of $5 to 10$ an HOUR for the benefits offered. I certainly wouldn't!!
What do you think?
