Pros

They express a desire to be a top rated hospital.

Cons

Consistently changing of unit director/managers about every two years creating chaos and uncertainty. The CEO is a visonary who generally selects autocratic executives in a continuing effort to achieve his "vision".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The board should take a long hard look at the disaster they have created based on their lack of oversight, and also consider the impact on medical and support staff. The essence of any good organization is the manner in which they treat their staff, and that treatment is reflected in the concern and care for their patients.

    Pros

    They treat their employees well here and offer fair benefits. They keep their staff so you will be working with the best here. Many employees have been here 20+ years so there is excellent patient care. They are a regional hospital so all types of patients and illnesses come here leading to a fun and challenging environment.

    Cons

    This hospital has been doing through lots of financial change and stress due to the new health care act. The health insurance is not competitive with like facilities in the surrounding area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your benefits package to retain employees.

    Pros

    Then opportunity to get education when hired under an EPIC position is outstanding. I believe Margo Karsten wants a positive change.

    Cons

    Bad Atmosphere. The Old Guard is still calling the shots even though Margo Karsten is the new CEO. Good employees are singled out, persecuted, and made an example of of how not to be if they are outstanding employees. The advice from the employees working long term is to keep your head down, do not help out beyond your position and stay invisible. Older employees causing the discontent and blaming the problems on the new employees. Education opportunities dismally inadequate for most of hospital. The hospital wants to be seen as a great place to go for both jobs and healthcare, but lacks the commitment to either quality measure. Engagement of the employees is not the way, but better management is the key here. Have you seen the employees come in for their shifts and only see sad faces? ANY employees filing a legitimate claim are always informed as a standard answer 'there was no evidence' for your claims allowing for more harm than good and decreasing the morale. No career avenues for anyone, which makes honest claims. Firing is always on the horizon. Benefits are not competitive. 6 holidays a year and not great health insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The claims the employees are making are legitimate. Instead of persecuting these personnel, embrace them. This hospital has to realize we are in small community. In order to get patients to want to come here and employees to stay is to treat both better. Acknowledge your shortcomings and say 'how you are improving' the culture and treatments. Just flashing we have some award of great healthcare does not impress anyone. Actions do! Not necessarily the upper management, but the management underneath looked upon as dishonest and is NOT trusted. Too much gossip and backstabbing going on underneath the Upper Management. This is a problem, since this is a SAFETY issue.
