I held a position here for approx 10 months. I experienced a very hostile work environment. There are very good things about this hospital but unfortunately too many managers turn there heads when it comes to staff being hostile/bullies towards other employees and even patients. Most bullies have been there for decades leading by example and they feel and behave as if they are untouchable, and from what I’ve witnessed they are. Especially on nights. I’d be very cautious taking a position here, having a union doesn’t change big business and this business has blatently shown that they do not care about their (newer) employees, their safety or putting an end to this growing concern when 2/3 of workplace violence happens in hospitals. It’s been brought to their attention multiple times and nothing noticeable has been implemented for improving the work environment or safety. I was verbally attacked in the ICU by a fellow employee over his perception of our assignment and then followed to a break room where I was chased around tables as I fearfully begged him to stop, the incident was recorded by one of 3 whitnesses. The hospital took over a month to do an investigation ( The same 6 Foot tall male employee has a few incidents that have been reported to HR for his hostility towards fellow staff) they intimidated the person who recorded the incident and made them delete it. I was left to deal with his retaliation and increased animosity at night with no management and no intervention of any kind. Nothing was discussed with me or implemented to ensure that this wouldn’t happen again as he just had a separate investigation in July for the same uncontrollable behavior. I’ve heard nurses scream deragatory statements towards patients and because of fear from retaliation they are allowed to continue this behavior. I heard over and over when I started that management does nothing, so far it appears to be true. I couldn’t handle the environment and left. Unfortunately a few bad apples do spoil the bunch when they are left to rot. I tried to seek help and so far this doesn’t seem to be important enough for anyone to do anything. I’ve reported this incident to the proper people at McLaren, The Lansing Police Deaprtment, EEOC and tried to obtain a PPO against the individual and was denied.
