October 2017 - Anti Bullying Awareness Month
Mission hospital is no longer the go-to hospital for women’s services in Orange County.
There are other facilities that have far surpassed them... more in the areas of patient satisfaction, innovative technology, medical standards, & modern equipment.
I was born at Mission hospital 40 years ago. It was a dream of mine to work on that floor one day. I thought that dream had came true several years back. I thought I had landed the job I would retire from. Unfortunately, it had become like a sequel from the movie Mean Girls but with a hospital setting.
The saying "nurses eat their young" is what many nurses will experience when they go to work today. I have witnessed this countless times throughout my career and eduction. I’ve seen it happen to others and myself far too many times. Since I was 18, I’ve trained or worked in many hospitals from California to South Carolina, either as a RN, BSN, LVN, CNA, or EMT. Now at 40 years old and with 14 years experience as a RN, I am no longer going to be a bystander.
Bringing awareness to this issue is my goal, especially for patient safety, for all the nurses who don’t even realise they are being mistreated, or who are too scared to speak up for fear of losing their jobs, for fear of retaliation and for all of the young new nurses who don’t deserve to work in toxic environments.
I chose to leave Mission hospital seven months ago because this behavior was directed towards me by the nursing supervisor of over 30 years and by several veteran nurses. When an example is set at an organization starting at the top of the nursing ladder, everyone suffers. It becomes an accepted culture. The patient satisfaction goes down. The employee satisfaction goes down. It’s not fair to all the truly wonderful nurses who are there for the right reasons. Mission has some of the most talented, kind hearted, hard working nurses I’ve ever worked along side of.
God blessed me with the REAL job of my dreams just after the cardiologist suggested I find another job after developing heart palpitations that I started experiencing while at work there.
Now, working at Kaiser Irvine, I can say I’ve never seen such a well ran facility. Employees are treated fairly & with so much respect. My co-workers are pleasant to work with and we work in a kind environment. The supervisors and nurse leaders are professional at all times and to everyone. There is a anti-bullying culture and a no tolerance rule.
Every good nurse deserves to work in a safe environment like the one Kaiser Irvine provides. I pray that God helps every person involved in situations like these to heal and find peace.
I had two level artificial cervical disk replacement surgery in their neuroscience tower. It was very important to me that I went to the best! Dr. Robert Jackson and Mission Hospital’s neuro tower... more are phenomenal!!!
I will highly recommend not to use this place number 1 personnel not very helpful with information poorly customer service number 2 takes 1hr to do registry 1hr to get pass to second review of paperwork???... more And then to wait again for a technician......then a long wait. finally got called and then another wait to get a film from other department . in sum a lot of miscommunication. Did I mention that I called at least 7 times and talk to different people just to confirm that I was approved by the medical group. A day wasted on our beutiful medical system.
