I have been working at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Large regional teaching hospital with variety of career opportunities for new nurses.
Plenty of educational opportunities offered.

Cons

Pay scale is on the extreme low end of the profession for a 4-year degreed nurse and annual raises are a joke.
For the largest healthcare organization in the region, the health benefits offered are embarrassing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a mass exodus of experienced staff (doctors, nurses, etc.) for a reason. Being one of the largest employers in southwest Virginia gives you the ability to dictate pay, quality of benefits and work-life balance, but ultimately employees will leave (or moral will suffer greatly) if they feel they are not being treated fairly.

    Former Employee - Safety Attendant in Roanoke, VA

    I worked at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had the opportunity of working with many skilled, caring individuals.My position gave me an opportunity to offer compassion and care to people who were going through very traumatic times.

    Cons

    Disappointed that many of the doctors and nurses seemed indiffernt to the patients needs. Sometimes a patient would have to wait half an hour or more for a nurse to respond to the call button. Delay in patient care was often the result of paperwork logjams at shift changes. Best staff to work with were the ICU nurses on 9 South.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that your patients are customers with medical needs. The patients should be your first and greatest concern. Attitude begins at the head and trickles down.
