I worked at Antelope Valley Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

They have a reasonably good clinical pharmacy program.

Cons

There is a lot of cattiness and talking behind people's back occurring. The present Pharmacy Director has made a concerted effort to stem this. However, the nastiness is pervasive and hard to quench. Working at AV Hospital, therefore, is difficult owing to the negative work environment in the pharmacy department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not reward negative behavior such as gossiping. Try and reward people for positive helpful behavior.

    I worked at Antelope Valley Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have some good programs in the Department of Pharmacy, and integrate all pharmacists into a mixed roll of clinical and distribution, which makes working there interesting and diverse

    Cons

    Management is not always supportive. There tends to be a catty environment, with a lot of gossiping and back-biting, which for the most part was left unchecked. Management, however, started cracking down on unprofessional behavior during last few months of my employ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try more positive reinforcement of employees.

  2.  

    The experience is poor b/c of an unsupportive upper management and understaffed and overworked nurses.

    I have been working at Antelope Valley Hospital

    Pros

    To obtain RN experience within a diverse population of patients. Work here if you really don't have an option due to the economy.

    Cons

    Understaffed, lack of relief nurses (too many interrupted lunch breaks and very late lunches as a result of this), poor support from upper management, lack of praise for accomplishments from upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more nurse techs and relief nurses--so we don't pass out from starvation and exhaustion. Much better support from upper management is necessary to increase work morale. If this doesn't change, more nurses will end up leaving.
