I worked at All Children's Hospital

Pros

So much good work is done here by everyone. Great learning environment that provides amazing care to the sickest children

Cons

However, despite the former CEO's adage that it's a privledge to work there and you get paid in "sunshine" at the end of the day, you have to feel like you are cared for. Which you aren't

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up with local salaries!

    I have been working at All Children's Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Self scheduling. Your request is usually met unless one of the golden nurses wants it.

    Cons

    The NICU is bigger than they can manage. Too little attention is given to appropriate nurse to neonate assignments and evidence based practice is not being followed. For example: Ampicillin is not supposed to be run through the same line as Dextrose and Amino Acids. TPN is full of Dextrose and Amino Acids and they continue to run them together even when I showed them in Neofax that is was not compatible. There are many more examples. In addition, there is a group of nurses that always get the assignments that they want and never give others the opportunity to get the experience with the more critical patients. Co-workers are rude and there is very little team work. Pumps and alarms would go off all night before another nurse would check on it if it wasn't their assigned baby. Sad....just sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about some team building activities and some better understanding of what evidenced based nursing is!

    I worked at All Children's Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Very dedicated and caring front-line staff who are focused on the core mission of helping sick children and their families.

    Cons

    Lots of politics and back stabbing among some senior managers. This has gotten worse since the acquisition by Johns Hopkins Medicine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The board should hire a proven CEO from a top rated children’s hospital, versus the current plan of just installing someone from Johns Hopkins Medicine.
