Pros

pay scale for staff rn decent, exciting changes being made to accomodate more Kaiser patients. Leadership that involved with direct patient care are supportive in what can be a difficult political situation with budget cuts.

Cons

they take advantage that this economy makes it hard for people to leave. Directors are insensitive to demands made in what seems to be mean spirited at times.Parking is a disaster. Unrealistic expectation and poor coordination of mandatory inservices and meetings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember what if feels like to be powerless. HONEST reasons regarding why difficult decisions are made. We lose respect when hidden agendas are revealed. Hiding behind etiquet keeps you from looking real. Give an answer to the grumbling ...learn the value of a quality explanation. If you listen to the people at the low end you would be surprised at the cost savings that could be realized. They see more waste because literally they are the ones throwing things away. You give great care to customers but employees are also your consumers and have brains, hearts etc.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good, the hospital itself is very clean and other staff are friendly to one another. Hospital offers many new and hight tech procedures for a relatively small facility, they seem to strive to stay current with the latest technology.

    Cons

    The parking, new employees must park offsite and take shuttle from satellite lot. Management hiring practices are questionable, some of the attitudes are a little too big for the britches.... just because the person has the right degree does not necessarily mean they are right for the job. Hospital is trying to be progressive and magnet oriented but old habits keep the dream from becoming a reality.
