Anything you can tell me?!

I've read some pretty bad stuff about the management styles and a little about the ?Medicare/Medicaid fraud that Tenet were found guilty of .
But this was stuff that was posted several years ago.
I've looked at their Joint commission reports and they seem to be doing well there, but wondered about RN to pt ratios, nursing morale,staffing levels generally, safety Emergency room etc etc

For what it is worth, every nurse I know that works at Piedmont wishes she could quit and work at another hospital.

I would stay away both as a patient and employee.
