I worked at WellStar Kennestone Hospital

Pros

the float pool position that I worked provided flexible hours with industry standard salary. I enjoyed providing care to multiple departments within the hospital

Cons

Working as a floor nurse is a difficult profession regardless of the employer. While I enjoyed
my co-workers and manager, I decided that 11 years of bedside nursing was enough for me. I left not because of Kennestone but because I needed a change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Small changes that are needed sometimes become bogged down in red tape. Leadership needs to find a way to streamline changes that provide more flexibility in the system.

    I worked at WellStar Kennestone Hospital

    Pros

    WellStar Kennestone Hospital provides a generous employee health, vision, and dental plan. They also provide 401K investment opportunities, with up to 4% employee fund matching.

    Cons

    WellStar Kennestone Hospital promotes an atmosphere of betrayal and mistrust between its coworkers. Instead of engaging in teamwork, employees are encouraged to write negative reports about one another to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An effective hospital requires the collaboration of numerous people in various roles. Instead of having your staff to police each others activities, it might be more effective to teach them to work as a unit and support each other.
