    Pros

    If the hospital was still open, I most likely would not be looking for a new employer. When it was open the people made it feel like home.

    Cons

    It closed. Benefits now cost more due to a low number of employees and Obamacare. I can not think of anything else to say.

  3. Great workplace, but didn't enjoy my temporary position and wasn't allowed to move throughout the department

    Pros

    Staff is incredibly friendly, has a lot of company events to get to know everyone and give back to the community, great pay

    Cons

    Orientation is long and boring, the way you have to log your hours is a pain to do every day, don't get much time off,

    Advice to Management

    Shorten orientation, consider updating the check-in and hours system, have more employee parking, and

    I worked at Deaconess Hospital

    Pros

    Nice coworkers and ok pay.

    Cons

    Poor management, communication. Closed-minded. Not abreast of technologic advances.

  6. I have been working at Deaconess Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is no greater satisfaction then helping patients and families through experiences that could be frightening; you let them know you are there to help in any way you can.

    Cons

    Working for a for profit hospital has shaped what can be purchased vs. what is purchased for all of patient care.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to see some management take care of the employees. If the employees are happy, it will show in their work and have a wonderful effect on patients and families.

  7. Great experience with this company.

    Pros

    Well, the wage is $10/hr which is very good. The environment is clean, warm, and air conditioned.

    Cons

    The management is a little shaky, and it is supposed to change soon. Also the schedule sometimes leaves necessary positions unstaffed for a shift. Plus, day shift gets automatic preference instead of night shift.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on making the two shifts more equal. We need better communication between the top and the bottom, who need guidance.

  9. Good company, poor patient/nurse ratio

    Pros

    Consistent overtime. Access to resources. Managers available to talk to when you need help/questions answered. Easy access to hospital, free parking.

    Cons

    The patient/nurse ratio made it hard to safely care for our patients. Seems like the hospital was never consistently staffed to appropriate levels

  10. understaffed, poor management

    Pros

    this is a small hospital

    Cons

    medical staff don't consider therapist input, most respiratory staff have not worked at any other hospital so do not have a broad respiratory experience. Understaffed and no concern for number of treatments not given. Management not concerned with level of patient care provided and poor employee morale.

    Pros

    Work alongside other healthcare professionals and get to interact with patients daily. Decent work/life balance the longer you work here. Get to work with little or no supervision and are expected to be competent enough to perform your position. Tuition reimbursement programs.

    Cons

    Do not expect go get praise for going above and beyond your position. Operates with a no news is good news mentality from upper management. They are VERY strict with operating within scope of practice which is understandable in a healthcare setting but not for someone who wants to move forward. Opportunities for advancement are not advertised very well nor information available for how to even do so. Upper management gets irritated if you inquire on how to move forward/pick up further certifications and see it as a distraction away from your position. If you want to move forward in healthcare, you have to do it on your own time but they do help with college costs.
