    Pros

    The Staff is very helpful and works well together

    Cons

    Staff nurses are required to sign up for call shifts. If you get downstaffed and called back in you do not get time and a half like you used to

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to figure out how to allow employees to sign up for call at home

  2. They truly care about their patients

    Pros

    Working in the SICU gave me skills that I never could have gotten anywhere else. I worked with some of the best nurses and doctors in the country, and I'm proud to have worked with them.

    Cons

    As in most businesses in the country, there is often head-butting between staff and management, as their focuses are different. Staff advocates for the patients and their families, while management is looking at the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what it was like to work in the positions you now manage. The problems you noted as a "worker" are still there, and you can now do something about them.

    Pros

    This position was a perfect fit for me, it was a contract temporary position.

    Cons

    It turned out that the Manager had someone hired for the position before I started working temporary.

    Advice to Management

    I loved working for Denver Health

    Pros

    Great people and benefits. This hospital is rapidly changing. The hospital has applied for magnet status and there are multiple opportunities to flourish and advance in the nursing profession.

    Cons

    The hospital is a safety net facility and as such, seems to have consistent and regular financial problems. Even as a nurse, job security can be a worry.

    Advice to Management

    Nursing management is excellent. However, the focus on lean process improvement has been overdone.

    Pros

    Excellent mission. Employees are great to work with and believe in mission (department specific). Pay is decent, for a true non-profit hospital serving the underserved. Benefits are excellent. Great location - public transport and trails available.

    Cons

    Slightly under-resourced. Certain departments need training. Systems are inefficient. The IT department needs work. Professional development budgets slim and very little offered in terms of on-sight professional development.

    Advice to Management

    Denver Health could be so much more LEAN if more lean systems were put in place. Too many arbitrary systems with outdated technology. The place would save $$$$ if it had a competent IT department / infrastructure.

  8. Love the mission and vision

    Challenging, fun co-workers like familty

    Management does not use budget money very will. They promote people with no knowledge of the group they are managing.

    Advice to Management

    Need to promote people that can do the work and know the systems they support.
