I worked at St. Joseph Medical CenterPros
Large facility that has many positions available to choose from.Cons
Talk is cheap. Although there is plenty of talk describing the missions and values all employees are to strive for; when it comes to actually valuing the employee as a respected hard worker, the bottom line is the first concern. Managers are so far removed from the clinical setting, they are not available when you really need them. Charge nurse positions are not encouraged yet very needed. The staff to patient ratio is always a concern. Even the units that are "money makers", do not get the staff ratios they require to prevent burn out and vacation leave when asked for.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Provide more staff FTEs so people can take their vacations and not burn out because they are overworked.
Don't expect full time employees to then be on-call every other weekend or every other evening or some combination of these options.
Split these positions and realize that the on-call time is exhausting.
Double back pay does not do a thing for a person's mental well-being nor allow that person to care for their lives outside of work.
Most people have family, spouse and/or elder members that need their attention, too.
On-call hours should be for staff members that only have part-time FTEs or choose to do so, not be part of the job description.
12 hour shifters should not be expected to work more than 3 shifts / week. Working 4 - 5 12 hour shifts/week is a killer, no matter what age or fitness level you're at. All you want to do when you get home is eat and sit on the couch or go to bed to get ready for the next long day.
Hire people to answer the phones, don't expect the nurses to do everything.No opinion of CEO
