I worked at Children's Specialized Hospital part-time

Pros

beautiful facility, top rate care, great nurses

Cons

management less than acceptable, no communication between nurse manager and nurses, scheduling done by a secretary atrocious, holidays you did't even get a meal had to pay for by self, paper towels always empty in the rooms, nothing to dry hands after washing, when short staffed nurse manager never stepped in to help on the floor just sat at her desk on the computer making it dangerous for nurse:patient acuity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

let nurses do their own scheduling, management needs to communicate with nurses, nurse managers shouldn't be afraid to touch a patient and help out if needed

  1.  

    Children's Specialized has a superficial well respected name. Working on the inside is a great disappointment.

    I have been working at Children's Specialized Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful new building; kept clean, though hand sanitizer and paper towels often lacking.

    Cons

    Hypocritical administration: say to the public one view of how they treat the CSH 'community' and treat employees quite differently. Distant, rigid CEO who has "favorites" and overlooks rules for some; punitive toward others for same rules. So, there is much petty talk; negative remarks are said against people you work with. You do not feel comfortable with all the negative gossip. Narcissistic medical leadership. Wont listen to others' opinions. Overall, no adherence to own advertised 'culture'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All rules should apply to all persons with similar job descriptions. Getting too top-heavy again with more administrators being hired and fewer staff to serve the children and families. Replace the chief doctor. Stop nepotism.

    I worked at Children's Specialized Hospital part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to help disabled children and it's very rewarding to see the children smile because of what you do for them.

    Cons

    It is difficult to work when the nurses and assistants are nasty. And it takes a lot of time that they don't give you, to learn the needs for these children. The staff expect you learn it in one week.
