I worked at MedStar Washington Hospital Center part-time (more than a year)

Pros

The nurses and doctors are the absolute best on the neonatal units. Smart, kind, attentive, and hard-working.

Cons

During my employment there were two strikes by the nurses because of conflicts between them and Medstar. They were not always treated as they should have been and the turnover rate was extremely high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support your nurses!

    I have been working at MedStar Washington Hospital Center full-time

    Pros

    Good variety of patient diagnoses, diverse staff, good benefits, good support from union

    Cons

    At times RN to patient ratios are concerning, at one point charge RN had 5 patients (not the first time I've seen it happen), unsupportive and occasionally bullying management, no monetary benefits from being charge RN or preceptor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to associates' suggestions and act on them, don't hate the union, adequately staff your floors because patient safety is constantly an issue, be more careful about bullying new associates
