    I have been working at Holy Cross Hospital Silver Spring MD full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    High grades for computer software
    Less than average patient loads
    Decent Pay
    Excellent SICUt

    Cons

    Many RNs and front line staff are unable to communicate clearly due to language barriers. Poor customer service on general floors and ICU
    High turnover of RNs after they fulfill contract obligations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove "senior" staff that no longer care about the company's vision.
    Hire a work force that is able to speak English. Many licensed professional lack the ability to communicate effectively to the patients you serve.
    Reach for Magnet Status! Until you do so, you will continue to have a weak, unproductive work force.
    Find out why respiratory therapists are not helping RNs - they don't answer the phone or spend much time on the unit.
