    B5 is considered the deep end of the pool. I feel like I have a strong foundation for future career aspirations.

    Cons

    Nurse to patient grid particularly on midnight shift does not account for patient acuity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust grid levels

    Pros

    Henry Ford Health System offers some incentives to their employees. Some of those incentives include tuition reimbursement for employees who are looking to pursue more education, or even continuing their education. This is a nice incentive that not many companies are offering to employees today.

    Cons

    There is a consistent issue with staffing throughout the system. Many departments lack the manpower that is necessary to function as a whole correctly. As a result employees often feel the brunt of the impact that this has had within the system. Many employees feel as though their concerns are simply disregarded when presented to any type of management or superior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spending more time with employees concerns and appropriately addressing them as necessary. Making employees feel valued by addressing theses topics can have a significant impact over time. This may also help to address issues such as appropriate staffing.

    Pros

    Friendly management, RSV (retirement) package, commute and team environment.

    Cons

    Scheduled templates which does not offer flexible scheduling.
    Management requires staff to find own coverage to cover weekend off requests. If coverage not found, CTO is denied even if it involves vacation request.
    RN's opinions are not valued by middle management regarding safe nurse/patient ratios

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incorporate RN's opinions into the staffing the unit.
    Develop a scheduling committee to incorporate flexible scheduling for the staff.
    Discontinue unit policy "Employees must find own coverage"

    I have been working at Henry Ford Health System full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flex time, benefit and its a job. Good team. Could be better, they've taken out a lot of perks from when j remember. Not good at all

    Cons

    No raises, cultural company has "it's not my job, I don't care- I hear that all the time, and it is sad. Company can be on top if the owner shows appreciate and gratitude towards the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders need to get train and be fully skilled professional. Some manager get thrown into the position because hey have been there for years- not a great idea.
