Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be a great idea to contemplate the implementation of a New Grad RN Residency program to aid new nurses with the transition from student to nurse.

    I worked at Community Healthcare System

    Pros

    Management came with good experience and was there to back you up when necessary. Co-workers were a great group of people to work with!

    Cons

    Mandatory uniform changes; high turnover rate for staff; some systems were outdated and archaic; strict attendance policy; poor communication within different departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is essential to retain good staff. I saw so many good employees leave for opportunities elsewhere because Community wasn't doing enough to hold on to worthwhile employees. Nurses can get jobs anywhere, even in a tough economy!

    I have been working at Community Healthcare System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good employees, decent insurance, bus service from parking lot, good doctors on staff, updating and expanding building finally. Cafeteria now offers healthier choices. Offers many types of services.

    Cons

    For all that is expected of employees the pay is low. Not enough employees to cover load. Benefits being taken away or cut back. It's more about money now not as much about patient care. It's all about putting on a "show" for patients. Most employees unhappy and management could care less. Their attitude is if you don't like it leave there are hundreds that want your job , (but they don't realize once they see and figure things out they will leave too) Employee turnover is high. Communication from all levels of management terrible. Raises go from 0-2%. Raises don't even cover insurance increases let alone cost of living. Very strict attendance and tardy policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Need to work on employee retention. Too many good employees leave not so much because of job duties but because of management attitudes from supervisors to the top. Management needs to realize happy employees makes the organization better and patient satisfaction better. Value your employees. Pay a decent wage.
