Disgusting colleagues, lying, and rude patients

I have been working at Maimonides Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great health benefits for 1199 members, when you make 5 years you get 4 weeks vacation, flexible and understanding Manager when it comes to work schedule and family issues. Manager/Supervisor will work with staff.

Cons

You have staff that have been at the company who refuse to learn other colleagues work, they pick
and choose what they want to learn.
If you are computer savvy they try to get you
to teach them how to use the program(s) in the department when they have an MIS department who
has staff who is specialized in assisting.
If you are quiet or do not like confrontation they allow other staff members to harass, talk to you how they may normally speak to a family member at home.
In addition, if you are a new person and you are capable of learning different area's of jobs in the department it now is expected of you to perform that job when the usual person who does the job may have called out sick or is on vacation or has a personal day off. The job function isn't rotated between staff who has been their for a long time and someone who is new.
The patients lie and cheat the system and if you realize it the patients attempt to make you feel like you are crazy for even bringing it to their attention. When systems are running slow or you are taking care of a cuurent patient, the new patient isn't understanding of the issue with the system, or they become very inpatient and rude with you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure all staff members are at the same level when it comes to using computer applications or office technology. Make sure all staff members are knowledgable in doing each others job regardless if they have been there for a long time or are new. Have Supervisors/Managers available to monitor how staff members treat each other in their presence, and out of their presence.

    Pros

    Maimonides has some of the most extensive computerization of the patient care record in the country. The MIS department is convenient to public transportation.

    Cons

    Management operates from the view that bullying is good and does not know how to interact with a professional staff. It is difficult to create a team to work on improvements and go-lives because it is like a revolving doors. Some project managers are worse than others and therefore their team is constantly changing. It is not uncommon to have an 8 am meeting scheduled on the same day as a 5 pm meeting for a 9-5 position. Then management will call you in and ask why you left 5 minutes early. 'My or the highway' is a phrase often heard within the confines of the former auto garage, now the MIS department, across the street from live chicken industry..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the entire upper level management's mindset. Physical and verbal abuse needs to stop.
