    great nurses to work with, skilled, and kind.

    Docs can be condescending and are arrogant...not all of them but many of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Good Samaritan Hospital (San Jose) part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are very pleasant and work as a team

    Cons

    Change in Manager's, not able to sub stain good management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look into who you are hiring to manage departments because when you have a manager who does not have any experience in the type of department they are over seeing the staff have a hard time functioning, especially when the manager got the job because of who they know.

    nobody cares to work there, treat everybody like just a number, high turnover, no parking, foreign RN's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no culture there. HR sucks and the unions have to constantly fight with them for anything.

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital (San Jose) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    cafeteria is improving from lousy food to mediocre

    Cons

    Not enough time allotted to patient care every floor is short staffed relying on nurses to do everything; some nurses go 8 hrs without breaks and even go without lunch....I don't know how they can complete their shifts. They are even asked to work over or stay additional shift or called without enough sleep to come in early.....worse experience as an RN

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money on what matters you know what is necessary to run a good facility=it's not just about how much money you make for stockholders

    Pros

    My coworkers are awesome and it has been a blessing to have a supportive coworker team atmosphere

    Cons

    Lack of pay and staffing is horrible. Lack of staffing and high acuity makes being a nurse very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your nurses support and decrease the number of patients. Acuity is too high for the nursing staff per patients.
