    In the end, it's still a business and you're only valued so much.

    Pros

    Making a difference in the lives of those in need. Working relationships within peer groups.

    Cons

    Finger pointing from middle mgt not wanting yo take ownership and hold accountability. Therefore a lot of finger pointing. Have to learn how yo CYA! Too quick judge and to perceive inaccurate information without asking more questions or explanations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions are more often given to men over women by the hiring women directors in areas of Front office operations.

    I worked at Baptist Health (Florida)

    Pros

    Lots of different patients in ICU. Nicely laid out ICU. Clean.

    Cons

    Low pay. Nit picking. They cannot keep staff. Many nurses in ICU not happy. Mandatory is their favorite word. Cannot get time off. Always feel management was trying to intimidate staff. Hourly rounding in the ICU, really? Observed Nepotism with promotion of charge nurses. Never felt I was treated as a professional nurse. Coworkers always complaining about lack of assistance from certain charge nurses and ACPs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of hourly rounding in ICU. Nurses are usually outside their patients room (at a desk) or they are in their patient's rooms. Stop trying to script how nurses work every minute of everyday. We are college trained professionals. Pay experienced nurses better! Stop calling everyday for nurses to work overtime, only to have them float to non ICU units. Large patient nurse ratios equal waitress work not patient care !!!

    Pros

    Good place to work
    good pay
    excellent service
    knowledgeable staff
    Plenty of free parking for patients/visitors
    Security staff do an excellent job

    Cons

    They fail to follow their own rules/policies, which they enforce aggressively.
    If you question what they do or how they do it, you find that you have resigned your position
    Security staff undermanned and underpaid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to save money by putting managers and vice presidents in positions that they know nothing about. Shorten your hiring practices it takes too long and it doesn't accomplish anything. Make sure that your policies and procedures apply to everyone just not a certain few. Your organization goes out of its way to hire what it considers to be top of the line staff, but if you want to keep them you have to make them feel that they're invested in what's going on around them instead of threatening them whenever they voice their opinions.

    Pros

    Baptist Health Systems is well established and has plenty of customers. The main hospital is not for profit but the company holds lots of real estate and is always planing how to expand and how to get more customers from their competitors.

    Cons

    The company continues to grow but the employees' salaries don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share. Reward those getting their hands dirty in order to make Baptist Health a great hospital.
