    Pros

    The people you work with are caring and nice. They try to work best as a team.

    Cons

    Medical surgical units don't have free charge. Kind of like one man for himself. They want you to provide the best patient care but yet under staff you. They almost always take patients side. If census drops they send home aids/clerks then we end up getting more New admits and are screwed. The people try to work as a team yet it is hard when you have your own heavy assignment. No support from management they just threaten to write you up or do write you up yet never help out the floors. Not very much support for new nurses either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more supportive to your units and stop threatening people with write ups. Directors help out your floor! And be more supportive to new nurses!

    I have been working at Baptist Health System (Texas) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The hospital I work in is medium sized and everyone employed there is very friendly. It feels like a large extended family. The theory is that the patients come first, always.

    Cons

    Not getting my hours as a pool employee and feeling overworked due to cutting staffing too short. Hearing patient complaints about not getting needed care because "everyone is too busy."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the unit managers are not very helpful to new staff and do not always work well with other departments.

    Pros

    Pay Check, Desk, Computer, "tele-phone"time

    Cons

    Business management does not care about you as a person, they treat you like a replaceable part, they use you up and spit you out, they work you dry give you a pat on the back and give you more and more work. They let the ignorant, loud, lazy people slack off and take advantage of the hard workers. They do not help you succeeded, management would much rather stir up drama and watch you fail and laugh behind closed doors about it. Their training is poor and management wonders why productivity is so bad, they blame it on their employes instead of themselves, they breach security and confidentiality agreements by sharing passwords, managements and employes are ALWAYS gossiping!!!!! Workers like to call you out on petty errors, and CC every one and their momma in email (not professional), NOT team oriented at all. TOO much drama, keep out of this place! Don't go to HR either, management WILL retaliate and make your life worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up, learn how to manage properly and professionally, cut the gossiping and immature behavior, learn how to do the job you are trying to manage!
