Overall good experience with Baptist

Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Little Rock, AR
Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Little Rock, AR

I worked at Baptist Health (Arkansas) full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Professional environment and most of the doctors were good to work with. Never really had anyone give me a hard time about anything. Pay is decent but on the lower side. They opted for the better charting system compared to other local hospitals.

Cons

Better benefits at other hospitals in the area. Staffing was an issue at times. Outdated equipment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Update equipment and try to to be a cheap on patient care supplies.

    Pros

    RNs, MDs, and the rest of the hospital staff are very professional and dedicated to serving patients and families. Great work atmosphere and culture. Prayer with patients and coworkers is not only acceptable but encouraged. Employees here simply go above and beyond for patients and each other. It was a great organization to work for.

    Cons

    Busy and demanding shifts but that is to be expected at a hospital. At end of the day it was always worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Senior leadership, throughout the history of Baptist Health and today, is constantly looking forward. Every decision is made with the future of the organization and its human capital in mind. Leadership attempts to be as transparent as possible by sharing information and the rationale for decisions with employees at all levels of the organization whenever possible. Daily "huddles" provide every employee consistent information about current institutional events and a forum to share information among their team members. The people and culture of the organization definitely set it apart from others. Over the past 20 plus years I have seen the culture become somewhat less rigid and believe this is an improvement. However, in an organization this large a somewhat rigid culture is necessary; we are dealing with the lives of others. Overall the people who work here do the right thing and are there for one another when needed; we care about each other's success, take a great deal of pride in our individual work, that of our team, and beyond. Finally, Baptist Health is committed to education as evident by their financial support of Baptist Health Schools Little Rock, the employee tuition assistance program, and the support of continuing education and career paths in place to assist employees in their personal growth.

    Cons

    The organization is very large which can make it difficult to get some things accomplished in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what has been successful in the past. Also, continue informing all employees as much as possible. When there is potential for misunderstanding and employee resentment try to share the rationale for decisions made to benefit the system early as opposed to later. Once people get upset and begin talking among one another it is too late; the damage has been done. While some information cannot be shared until later, when possible attempt to explain financial decisions and how they benefit the long-term success of the organization as they are being made.

    In the current climate it is obvious that spending must be reduced. However, reductions to continuing education monies are lethal. This benefit attracts and retains trained talent, while ensuring that practitioners are skilled in the latest procedures and techniques. Quality continuing education for allied health professionals is not always available by distance education. And face-to-face interaction with other practicing allied health professionals is invaluable.
