    Pros

    Faith based and patient driven with focused on healing all people with compassion, faith, and excellence.

    Cons

    Roper's physicians partners group is more growth driven and not as strong in the compassion, and faith area, as well as focused on growing middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on your patients, physician offices, and staff, and the growth will follow. Also, increase the faith base element to the physician's partners group. An opening pray at quarterly meetings before lunch would be nice would be nice as well as closing the meeting with a pray.

    Pros

    Roper's environment is one you really feel like you matter. Genuine concern for the patients and the community. There are many reasons why they are voted the best place to work in Charleston.

    Cons

    In my case an upper level manager had no clue what we did in our department. Immediate supervisor was great and as well as the one above this particular person. You have this most places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure all of management is on the same page with the same understanding of its employees.

    Pros

    This is a company that is constantly striving to remain competitive in a tough market to be competitive in. The politics of healthcare make intense scrutiny of every move a very real challenge, but RSF rises to that challenge and continues to do what's right.

    Cons

    The politics of a competitive healthcare environment make it very stressful if you are not accustomed to that sort of thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time acknowledging and rewarding the people in positions whose positions are NOT hard to fill and not just those in which there is a shortage of good employees.

    You have the occational management that is not willing to work with you on anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very supportive of those employees that are trying to further their education to better serve you and would beniffite them.

    A good place to work

    I have been working at Roper St. Francis Healthcare

    Pros

    Friendly environment with diverse job opportunities. Staff are well informed of issues that affect healthcare. My schedule is flexible and the medical benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Comparible positions at other institutions pay higher. There are plenty of chances for professional development, but many of the available positions posted are lateral moves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an open mind. The realm of nursing is huge with many diverse people.

    I know there are necessities with regard to charting and "paperwork", but all this takes away from the care of the patient.

    I have been working at Roper St. Francis Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Shared governance, applying for magnet certification, multiple certifications, Management pushes education and certification of nurses, tuition grants are available and certification applications and exams are paid for.

    Cons

    Nurse to patient ratios close to unmanageable, census is rarely stable, recertification exams are not paid for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always think about how you would want your loved ones cared for and the how patient care can suffer with each extra patient under one nurse's care. We may be only able to get the basics accomplished, excellent care sometimes means some patients need a lot of extra time that at these ratios is not going to happen.
