    Current Employee - Nurse Practitioner in Granite City, IL

    Pros

    Excellent pay.
    Excellent time off.
    Very kind co-workers and middle management.
    Fair benefits, though you had to use the hospital for health insurance in an inner-city.

    Cons

    Poor organization of management. Individual offices with little to no supervision, very laissez faire. Problem providers and employees were kept because of the political/financial burder of removing them.
    Poor operations management--buying was disorganized and inefficient. Central supply would be a much better solution to supply offices with supplies. As it was product constantly expired before it was used. There would be hiatus from buying new, so at times difficult to acquire supplies.
    High turn-over in executive management, very green upper level management--poor inner city system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need experienced management, not simply a variety of young men at their first executive position making an attempt up the ladder. Move the hospital out of the inner city or at least build an additional. You will never compete as a big provider in that location. Most people are not going to seek care at a facility with that location.

    Pros

    At the most, some medical benefits and a salary, even if below the market in a local area with many hospitals, research, and centers of excellence

    Cons

    Small hospital with many long term employees. Many complaints from long term employees about the organization and lack of consistency on a day to day basis.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse

    Pros

    They hire nurses who are new graduates.

    Cons

    No training for new nurses. You don't get a preceptor. They just throw you into the deep end and you sink or swim. The patient load is VERY heavy. 8-12 patients per RN on an orthopedic floor is not reasonable. They call you off for low census if the patient load is less than 7 per nurse. They complain bitterly if you work overtime. I saw many nurses clock out and then stay over 2-3 hours to complete their charting. Very little support and a very high pressure environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current patient loads per nurse are not safe. Hire more nurses.
