    Pros

    The staff who work here care about the patients and work very hard (well most of them).

    Cons

    Money is more important then patient care. Every thing was about the bottom line!
    Budgets were cut. Departments could not buy things they needed to do their jobs. It pitted people against each other. The never ending threat of losing your job was swung around like a hammer.
    People punching out to finish their job so they wouldn't go into overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of demanding more work and telling people they should be thankful for a job. A thank you goes a long way.

    Former Employee - Family Nurse Practitioner  in  Brighton, MA
    Former Employee - Family Nurse Practitioner in Brighton, MA

    I worked at Steward Health Care System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large medical center which is a teaching hospital for Tufts Medical School and several nursing schools in the area. Many resources for further education and training. Journal clubs, large medical library, many research and outreach opportunities. Doctor's and midlevel colleagues are supportive and knowledgeable. There are several opportunities for advancement in a particular area.

    Cons

    Focus is on how much money hospital and practices can make with little focus on patient care. Use a old fashioned cookie cutter model for all patient's. Staff and administration are generally not supportive of physicians, PA's, and NP's. There is no sense of a medical team - it's more PCP'S and nurses vs. administration vs. other staff. Communication is the same and I often found that groups had difficulty communicating clearly with one another. Ultimately this would affect patient care on a daily basis

    Charts are often still in paper format despite having EMR in the office for over 2 years. Even scanned paper charts in the EMR were often missing information creating a lot of extra work for staff and PCP's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to PCP's as we intimately know our patient population. Would like clearer communication and all staff meetings. Continue having medical and nurse practitioner student's in the office - they bring valuable new insights/information and their enthusiasm.
