    Pros

    Facility willing to train New Grads. Offers a decent medical, dental, life insurance package. Facility is represented by the union.

    Cons

    The facility is frequently short-staffed. There are many times when you don't have beds/ rooms for the patients or the supplies you need.

    Advice to Management

    They need to put people in management positions that understand or find out what is going on in the unit.

    Pros

    Dynamic environment with various patients from neonates to geriatrics.

    Cons

    Management preaches attention to patient care, but overwhelms with workloads with no regard to time or location. Punitive & chastised for insignificant errors, such as not removing equipment from a room. Dichotomy & dissension between management & workers.

    Advice to Management

    You could benefit from actually getting out on the floor & simply shadowing employees to see how frustrating computer charting can be, how responding to patient's needs doesn't always fall into the "allotted time" matrix for care, how easy it is to fall behind if an emergency or change in status occurs. Before you simply make policy decisions, research & gather feedback from those you expect to execute changes. Why not give more positive updates and compliments to encourage teamwork & support.

    Pros

    Clinical practice protocols there were very strong

    Cons

    Archaic systems in place, ie was still paper system which eventually became an hybrid of paper & electronic. Still not very efficient, but slightly improved.

    Pros

    I liked Tenet and Fountain Valley. Unfortunately, the hospital had changed. They had the greatest HR manager while I was there, unfortunately he retired. He was so "gung ho" on everything. He would email us with so much enthusiasm.

    Cons

    Allowing micro management and bullying to go on regardless of reports to ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to control everything. You can't control some employees.
