I have been working at Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits\ potential for lots of OT\ schedule up 1 mo. In advance.
24hr\7 day week inpt. Pharmacy only. No outpt. RX's. Lots of different shifts.
Hospital under expansion. Use Pyxis med. Automation on RN floors. No tech order entry allowed. Low turn over of staff pharmacists. High turnover RX Director as well as hosp. CEO.

Cons

High turnover RX Directors. Current director very weak. No appreciation from director or hospital admin. Always in the process of change at the worst times of year. Process improve..during flu season such as Thanksgiving &Christmas. Adding more & more responsibilities with no increase of pay. Hospital has a union. Promotes laziness and milking jobs. The hard working get overlooked and frustrated. Higher inexperienced techs & expect those already doing double to train with no relief to do their own work. COmmunication is poor. Have worker's comp. Injured techs still working in dept. Against hospital policy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need weekly staff meetngs with Technical staff. Not just RPhs. Need to control out of control techs that create drama amongst staff. Cut out the trouble makers. There are many excellent hospital techs that have excellent work ethic, keep to task and keep their mouths closed. Cut out techs that are doing everything they can to call the union for retribution and personal gain...hurts entire dept.morale. Get tough, follow thru. Act immediately. Do not wait.

    I worked at Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Clean, up to date facility in nice, safe area. Pleasant staff and coworkers. Good wages.

    Cons

    Incredibility under staffed and lack of resource of floor to ask questions due to staffing issues. Orientation extensive but on floor documentation very difficult due to half paper/half EMR with slow running computer system and an excessive numbers of steps to complete daily documentation forms and patient handoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Desperately need to streamline your forms and processes- it shouldn't take 20 minutes to complete a form because your computer service is slow and the form requires looking up codes and placing extra check marks in boxes to progress from one page to another.

    Hospital certifications look good as far as a PR perspective but you shouldn't be undertaking a certification if to implement it you further decrease your diminished workforce forming superusers and evaluation teams leaving your floor staff desperately short to the point your paying staff their breaks/lunches and giving your charge nurses a full case load....short staffing the floors increase your risk of employee burnout and puts your patients at risk for care errors or care unavailability.
