    I worked at El Camino Hospital part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people in this hospital are the best people that I have worked with.The hospital is brand new and first class.It provides the best care that for a patient.Great pay and benefits.I have heard that they are the highest paying hospital in the Bay Area. Way above Stanford Hospital and Washington Hospital. Most managers will also allow you to accommodate to get your degree by working out your schedule with them. They also provide training for employees who want to improve their skills at healthcare.

    Cons

    Definitely,there is no perfect workplace in the world. There will be people who are challenging to work with due to either laziness or arrogance. Also,the hospital was severely affected by when it opened a brand new building back in 2008 as it increased its rates and it was the time when economic meltdown occurred. But I think that they were able to bounce back from it considering that it is one of the primary hospitals in the Bay Area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They must try their best to adapt to the changes in the Healthcare systems especially now that Obamacare has been fully implemented.

    I worked at El Camino Hospital part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Supportive environment. Supervisors very accommodating. Everything is very systematic. Patients and employees genuinely enjoy contributions made by volunteers. Scholarships offered for certain majors. Recognition and rewards at annual/bi-annual assemblies. Perks include: discounts at the nearby See's Candies and one free cup of coffee from coffee cart!

    Cons

    Very few leadership opportunities. Sometimes it's hard to find someone to take over your shift(s).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An online forum that would allow volunteers to coordinate shift availability with ease would be nice to have.

    Pros

    Clean professional environment, innovative, great support staff, management and doctors work collaboratively with nurses, flexible schedule, great benefits, great amenities for patients.

    Cons

    Very focused on staying within budget. Getting sent home early or getting cancelled for 4 hours and then having to come in at odd hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The patients we see on the medical floor often cannot do a single thing for themselves, yet demands are so high for the nursing and support staff. Confused, combative psych patients, dressing changes that take an hour, multiple tests that need to be done off the floor and needing at least 2 nurses to get obese patients into and out of a gurney, admissions you don't have time for, family members with a lot of questions not answered by the doctors, needing to be fed, turned, bathed, pulled up, frequent diaper changes. I believe the medical floor works the hardest and yet has the highest nurse to patient ratio. It is time to take action and drop the ratio to 4 to 1. This is what is needed for patient safety, it cannot wait for the next law to be passed. Please budget this in. Medical nurses drop like flies due to stress, burnout, and injuries.
