    Pros

    Good work environment. People are very friendly. Everyone was easy to work with.

    Cons

    Was poorly managed and disorganized. The schedule was not organized accordingly and we were frequently short handed.

    Advice to Management

    I believe they need to work on scheduling. They need to have a certain amount of assistants on the floor at all times.

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital (San Jose) full-time

    Pros

    Great co workers, many people who have been there over 5 years

    Cons

    Great co workers, but culture and professional accountability needs to be higher at all levels. Seems like all decisions come from "Corp' and not based in what in clinically or professionally relevant. Everyone is overworked

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital (San Jose) (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Staff. Some of the managers really care for their employees while others mainly stress them out. But as a whole the organization does try.

    Cons

    Management shows little concern for staff or patient safety while concerned only with patient scores. Don't they realize it's all intertwined?

    Pros

    Great team of nurses to work with, very supportive.

    Cons

    Not the best pay or benefits, very resistant to work with union and administration doesn't seem to care to improve work conditions if it involves spending an extra nickel.


  8. Working at the acute hospital was ok. They preach they are a team that support their work staff but DO NOT!

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital (San Jose) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are fair, salary was fair and coming together to support their employees was not. People are human, mistakes occur but patient care & safety are ALWAYS the priority.

    Cons

    The lack of a team approach, no support and understanding for an employee forced to resign does not make for a cohesive affiliation.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees that give 110%, stay overtime to make sure each client receives the best professional care necessary to meet their needs on their journey to reclaim their functional independence, h& help the family train to care & help their family member..... John Lennon was right.... "Life happens when your busy making other plans."

    when there are multiple complaints about a doctors behavior, there needs to be consequences.
