The current leadership is ruining what used to be an excellent hospital.

Pros

Reasonable benefits.
Some very dedicated, hard-working employees.

Cons

Most of the Inova Fairfax Hospital Senior Leaders are overpaid, cold-hearted individuals who are relatively new and simply don't care about the organization. This is so obvious with every decision they make. The morale among the staff and middle management is so low yet Administration is oblivious to the mess they have created. There is so much dysfunction. The CEO rules by intimidating and treating others with no respect. Excellent people have been displaced from their jobs with little care by the leaders who forced these ridiculous changes. I feel sorry for the patients who are the ones who will ultimately suffer due to the actions of a few individuals who care about no one but themselves.

Advice to Management

Move far, far, away. Please.

    I spent my entire nursing career of 32 years at INOVA Fairfax making a difference at the patient's bedside.

    Pros

    I loved coming to work daily because I sensed I was valued as a team member to care for the patients I was assigned to daily. I was heard and respected for my experience and knowledge and participated in many unit, hospital and system wide committees to make positive change.

    Cons

    Some changes lately impacted on the more experienced, longevity, and higher paid staff that gave a feeling of being devalued.

    Advice to Management

    When a staff member has been down and out and struggling to return to what they do best; don't kick them down further. You need to give them a chance to prove themselves before yielding to preconceived ideas. Longevity, experience and loyalty have got to count for something.

    Pros

    They will hire those without experience to train
    A lot of team work among nurses and techs
    They give yearly raise even though they are extreme penny pinchers

    Cons

    Constantly short staffed Techs had up to 24 patients on an average night (this was a big unit)
    Nurses had 8 patients per night, forget finding float staff
    They are extremely anal about clocking in and out exactly on time (by the minute)
    Low pay
    Scheduling was a disaster

    Advice to Management

    Stop managing 6 floors at a time and just have one floor to take care of!
