    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Pikeville, KY
    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Pikeville, KY

    I have been working at Pikeville Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The group of physicians I worked for was the only pro to this job

    Cons

    COO has a GED, upper management consists of friends and family of CEO regardless of education. None have any clinical experience. Complete disaster

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People with the most clinical experience and highest education should be in upper management. Those without a college education should be in lower positions, this is not rocket science.

    Former Employee - Respiratory Therapist in Pikeville, KY

    I worked at Pikeville Medical Center part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-Workers (not administrators) are the best and family like

    Cons

    Lowest paid hospital in the state of Ky, No respect from management, write ups for time over a break/lunch and time under a break/lunch. Management uses constant fear tactics about losing your job. Administrators with nothing more then a GED in education. Extremely high cafeteria prices, like $1.25 per banana high. Creative scheduling,, (you may work 13 hours a day, but have to leave early on your last day so you don't get overtime. Never ending pounding about how they are the best hospital in the nation, every single day, they claim to hang with John Hopkins, and the Mayo Clinic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take hospital administration classes,
