    Pros

    Pros

    There were many pros. The people, the patients. The staff were great people. The benefits were fair. The computer system was fantastic and the education I received there was superior.

    Cons

    Management has made a mess of a place that 10 years ago was once a great place to work. It can not retain employees now. Those there are trying desperately to get out. It's sad to hear of the deterioration. It is also sad for the patient's and the community.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone in there who supports and respects their employees and cares about putting the patient first. In order to take good care of your patients, you have to take good care of the employees who are the caregivers. Very sad

    Pros

    If you're willing to work, they will use that drive

    Cons

    management believes in letting others take responsibility; firm belief that there are always applicants to be hired more cheaply.

    Advice to Management

    experience needs to be recognized with pay, not platitudes.

    Pros

    Not many pro's over the last couple of years. other than it is local.

    Cons

    Management could care less about any of the staff, doesn't matter how long you have been there you are still treated bad. Most of the staff there now are new grads with little to no experience, most of the seasoned nurses left when the LPN'S were demoted .and our director of nursing was let go, Very few seasoned nurses remained, NO job security, patient to nurse / tech ratio is not safe. We are not paid if we don't get our breaks, we are told to be there 20 min before our shift starts but not allowed to punch in early, When I started 8 years ago it was a great place to work, now it is a place to earn your pay and go home.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your staff for a change, try working on the floor your self to see how it is .

    Pros

    Flexible, Convenient, Good learnign experience for new starting employee. Small town Hospital feel.

    Cons

    Salary range for position is not on par with other major organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the staff you have and compensate accordingly. The work expected of the small team is great compared to other comparable institutions resources for the same build prospective. Without some re evaluation and soon continued losses seem eminent to the IT team.
