    Former Employee - Nursing in Santa Barbara, CA

    I worked at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Not the best, there are better in the private sector, but for this local community they were excellent. Shared governance, meaning employees have some say in how things are run. Much less tolerance of rude or prima donna MDs or managers than in the past. Beautiful area to live in, lots to do outside of work and a nice community. Great weather. No snow! Never! Brand new facility completed in 2012. Has generous reimbursement for continuing education, supports professional growth. A good general hospital with excellent doctors. 99% of the doctors are really great to work with. Lots of different floors, departments, so lots of opportunity to find which area is the right fit. Has affiliated with university for advancement to BA & MA degrees onsite and by computer.

    Cons

    Smallish town, no other hospitals to move to. VERY expensive housing. One of the most expensive places to live in the country, unless you commute 90-180 miles/day (RT), which is also expensive with little public transportation. Management in general disconnected from employees and patients, seems to care more about appearances, prestige, and survey results than reality. (Some departments are very good, others not, as far as management) Parking difficult for employees and visitors. Hospital has large amount of "extra"capital, puts it into real estate and structural changes rather than employees and the community. Seems to have delusions of grandeur, trying to compete with metro Los Angeles hospitals. Management very dollar-oriented, focus is on getting patients in and out as quickly as possible. Employees get paid time off hours based on hours worked, so any sick time really comes out of what would be vacation and holidays in the private sector, meaning there is no extra allotment for sickness. Quite a few non-professional employees are either rude or tend to ignore visitors and patients. Very few women in upper management--the glass ceiling is alive and well. Not much room for upward mobility. Hires from outside more than from within for management. Pay is quite a bit lower than in Los Angeles area 100 miles south, but cost of living is higher due to housing. Working night shift is (or was) a requirement for new hire nurses,, which is very difficult/impossible for some people, and can be physically detrimental for those who don't tolerate it well. (Most shifts are 12 hours). Nursing shifts are cancelled for "low census" (as in most hospitals), but this is something that does not occur in any other professional work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more time off. Private sector professionals get 10 vacation days (2 weeks) plus 10- 12 holidays , plus 10 sick days. Pay RNs a salary instead of hourly. Have electric shuttles between the parking structures and the hospital entrances, at shift change and during the day and evenings for visitors as well as employees. Pay more attention to critiques made by employees and the community, and make an effort to resolve the problems. Invest some money in the solutions instead of claiming that it's "impossible" to increase hiring budgets or give bigger raises. Offer financial incentives to local homeowners to rent to employees. Fewer committees. Decisions don't all have to be made by a group. Management needs to take responsibility and make management decisions sometimes. Mentor, train and promote from within, and promote more women.
