    Pros

    Great co-workers and knowledgeable nurses and Free parking and competitive salary

    Cons

    3:1 nurse to patient ratios in the ICU are a very common occurrence --- on a Friday in January 2015 each and every nurse had 3 patients ---- God help you and the other 2 patients when you are busy with one going to CT or doing a bedside procedure; Care because of this is absolutely horrible

    Advice to Management

    Administration needs to seriously concentrate on nursing ratios.

    Pros

    You can use your ID badge to purchase food in cafeteria, coffee shop - no need to carry cash.
    Staff (RN, techs, etc.) are pleasant to work with

    Cons

    Upper management's open door policy is a farce
    Necessary changes require meeting after meeting after meeting - very slow process
    Management turnover is high. Disappointed with the "recommended resignations" of talented people who are excellent clinicians.
    Disconnect between private physician groups and physicians that are employees.
    Message delivered from upper management is clear: Production outranks patient care

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you're management and not at the bedside. Listen to the clinicians. Practice what you preach! Communication from upper management to employees lacks honesty. There is very little follow-up communication regarding employee concerns. Deal with the REAL issues and have less meetings. Morale is down and that doesn't improve by sending upper management on retreats. Instead, send upper management on share days with the staff who take care of patients. In doing so you can experience the headaches you cause as you make decisions from behind a desk - far removed from where the issues take place.

    Beware of Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. Talk to other employees before signing on with Sinai.

    Pros

    Sinai has a history of being a leader in Medicine in the community.

    Cons

    I have worked in four different hospitals. Sinai ranks as the worst (by far) in terms of how they treat their employees. Regardless if one is a tech, a nurse, a physician, support staff, secretary--you name in, the vice presidents categorically seem to actively pursue the philosophy of "the beatings will continue until morale improves." This is NOT a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Senior Management: You are working with fellow human beings. Treat them with respect and kindness. Otherwise, you will continue to see a mass exodus of employees who flee from your draconian practices. It's not too late for you to regain some respect within the medical community. Right now, though, the word on the street is to avoid Sinai. It is you, the management, who have set the tone so that this opinion exists. It is the truth.
