Wouldn't work at Kaiser again-they call it killer kaiser. In years past, seems like a lifetime ago, we had a pt pt in the unit, MD made him no DNR, then wanted us to stop nourishment and fluids, nurses refused, told him to move the pt out of the unti, he refused, we refused, media was called, things blew up, a few resigned, to the delight of the mgmt,
I'm hiding rather than work there ever again
Anybody who wants to come to LA, PLEASE!! COME, we need nurses, badly,
and yes, Kaiser has separate unions for RN's and everybody else, also, used to be you had VERY set days off, mine were every other weekend, then Thurs, followed by Tues, didn't matter what else you had going on in your life, switching days was virtuallly impossible, I hope for all the ones who stayed, things got better. Hope for improvements.
Another reason I left hospital nursing.
