    I worked at Desert Springs Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly CEO (Sam) who knows everyones name and staff who care about patients. There are some really great managers there as well. Great payscale.

    Cons

    Seasonal patients so it is busy in winter and not so busy in summer. Have to use PTO to cover shifts missed when there are not a lot of patients to treat. This is common at all hospitals in Vegas though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work of engaging your employees and making it fun to come to work. Keep hiring the right people for the positions available.

    I worked at Desert Springs Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The majority of the staff was great, very family oriented, salary reasonable and an overall great team to work with; Time off policies were very flexible and kept a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    My particular position lacked education and training as well as a defined set of tasks/responsibilities. Management issues for that unit (organization and listening skills lacking) as well as understanding everyone's position. It's hard to have a manager managing nurses for example when they know nothing about nurses and they are not a nurse. Also on a smaller unit you don't have as many resources and staff coverage, so you end up being well rounded in covering other's positions so they can have days off.

    Advice to Management

    Learn everyone's role so you can better understand your employees and flow of the unit . Also listening to their concerns is a huge part of good communication and the employees feel valued as well.
