    I worked at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are really good, can not say that about anything else

    Cons

    Lazy nurses, charge nurses only care about the nurses and could careless about the CNA's or other support staff. Nurses are rude and lack respect for CNA's. Not enough compensation for the amount of work a CNA has to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more and do not automatically take sides based on someone having a higher job title.

    I worked at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Up to date equipment, nice rooms.

    Cons

    Absolutely no team work.
    I was told I would be working every other weekend during interview. Once completed orientation, I worked sometimes three weekends in a row. I wasn't told about mandatory over time until my last day of orientation. Employees that have worked there longer can adjust the work assignments to their needs. Current nurse's drive away new nurses. Pay grade is extremely low for the amount of work required. Always short staff! Not a very clean place at all. Most medical staff don't wash their hands in between patient care! Constant plumbing problem. I understand we all need a job, however, I recommend waiting on another job to come through before accepting a position with gsrc. I would wait for upper management to clean out middle management. You will get nothing but lies from the time you enter the door for an interview. Job hunters, new grads, beware!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your department directors and department managers

    Underpaid and understaffed

    I have been working at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a full time job.

    Cons

    Work load increases but salary and number if workers stay the same. Lab is so understaffed and needs organization. Looks like dinosaur age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your lab employees and listen to the needs and concerns. Stop looking at the "numbers" which means money in HCA hands and no concern for employees.

    I have been working at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice rooms, equipment and supplies

    Cons

    High acuity of care required for very sick and injured patients and constantly short staffed requiring a higher nurse-patient ratio. Impossible workload. dissatisfied patients with care due to nurse being too busy to render proper care.
    Mandatory 4 12 hour shifts a week and not informed about it until the middle of your orientation. almost every day spent an extra hour and a half finishing up at the end of the shift I was working up to 55 hours per week which was forced upon staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    middle management needs to be cleared out due to lack of caring of staff and favoritism. unfair treatment. bad behavior is tolerated on a regular basis with no consequences. Certain nurses out right drive new nurses away and brag about it and are not called on it.
    nurses should be compensated for their experience and not paid much lower than average
    salary.
    Be honest in the interview process and tell potential employees that they are mandatory to work 4 12 hour shifts per week totally 48 hours

    I worked at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits. Friendly employees. New beds added. Good heart center.

    Cons

    Patient care is sacrificed for the almighty dollar. Charge nurses have a patient assignment. Patients wait days for a room. No privacy or confidentiality. 7-8 patients per nurse. High turn-over rate. Hospital never goes on diversion but two area hospitals do which only makes the ED even more stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start putting more empasis on good quality patient care and caring for your employees and less emphasis on trying to make as much profit as possible at the expense of patients and employees.
