    Pros

    You get a paycheck. I would also like to think that I am making a difference because I do like to help people and it is the reason I chose to work in healthcare.

    Cons

    The hospital has been having serious financial issues for years, and their way of "fixing" the problem is to eliminate staff. This has caused a serious burden for the existing staff, causing burnout, low morale and questionable patient care. Employee morale is very low across many departments and across different job titles.

    Advice to Management

    I have none for management, they won't listen anyway.

    Pros

    I met a lot of interesting people. Scrubbed in in a lot of different specialties which I enjoyed very much. Assisting a Surgeon in surgery was so very rewarding. I was born to take care of people, it is in my blood.

    Cons

    The downside was having to leave. I loved working there. I miss the Surgeons, RN's, and all the other staff. It was really fun working there.

    Pros

    New facility, EMR, great co-workers

    Cons

    Unsafe staffing ratios, three managers in the two years I was there on one unit; three managers (and then no manager) on the other unit in one year.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe things have changed, but it was unsafe to staff the inpatient units with nurses caring for 7-8 patients at a time. They need to hire managers who are willing to work for the rights and safety or the patients as well as the nursing staff--not one or the other.
