    I worked at Hamilton Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Individual recognition for professional achievements, opportunities for advancement, competitive salary and great benefits. Clean and attractive facility to work in. Patient focused.

    Cons

    The organization's culture on environmental appearance can cause undue stress for managers and staff both. Limited recruiting area for professional staff. Meeting staffing requirements difficult in between the local college's annual graduation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up some on the environmental appearance. The organization's culture in this area makes it rigid and stresses staff. Continue to develop sources from from which to recruit staff.

    I have been working at Hamilton Medical Center

    Pros

    I learned alot while there. I was hired as a new nurse. I chose the renal floor. Im glad I did. I believe i developed great skills that will help me in my future as a nurse.

    Cons

    nurse to patient ratio is rediculous. They only think money and not aquity of patient load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    base the staffing grid on aquity and not money. You would keep more nurses if you did this.

    I worked at Hamilton Medical Center

    Pros

    Hamilton Medical Center is a general hospital in a small town and the employees are generally long term as there isn't much competition in other places to work. Everyone knows everyone and you begin to feel like family. Pay is better than one hour north, but quite a bit less than an hour south.

    Cons

    It's all in who you know at Hamilton. If you are liked, you will advance quickly. Pay is average for this area, but the benefits have been steadily declining over the past few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff should be treated equally. Favored employees should not be treated differently. Steps should be taken to ensure that staff are treated well so that they are happy at their jobs.
