I have been working at BayCare Health System

Pros

Lots of training! They really emphasize education and pay for it. My managers were very competent and professional.

Cons

I worked on a very busy floor, and sometimes none of my patients are able to be independent even with basic needs. Almost every shift I have a 'primary' patient that I do all the vital signs, accuchecks if needed, bathe, change bed linens, and chart I&O, everything a tech would usually do for the patient/RN. This is ok if the shift is going fine and the patient is somewhat independent. But occasionally the patient load is really heavy and its that extra little bit that can cause an otherwise busy day to go spiraling out of control.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Healthcare is a competitive business, but one more tech per shift on a busy floor can be the difference between retaining good staff and hiring a revolving door of new grad RNs and techs with no experience in a hospital.

    Pros

    Baycare is a company that is most of the time trying to do the right thing for the patient. It is not a compay that is driven by a shareholder's interest, unlike many other Healthcare Corporations of America.

    Cons

    The health insurance is not the best available. One of the downsides is that Baycare is a catholic based organization and their healthcare policies are still driven by that foundation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give insurance coverage to your employees for fertility and birth control issues. Don't let the catholic dogma control the wishes and well being of our team members.
