    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    variety of different units to gain exposure to but I was only able to work in 2 units while completing my internship, fast paced environment

    Cons

    employees seemed overworked and could be snappy at times, was yelled at for simply asking a nurse if she knew where one of patients were since she wasn't in her room

    Advice to Management

    hire more people to make work load more manageable, instead of giving your current employees ridiculous case load sizes

    Pros

    big rooms, private, very family friendly.

    Cons

    Becoming very corporate. Used to be a great environment to work in, beginning to change as focus has shifted toward becoming magnet status. Employee appreciation has deteriorated.

    Advice to Management

    Get better at appreciating employees more.


  6. Caring, friendly, knowledgable employees staff this community based hospital!

    I worked at Mills-Peninsula Health Services as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unlike many of the teaching hospitals and other large hospitals in the area, Mills-Peninsula Health Services is a small, community based hospital. Because of this, the employees and the the management know each-other. They are able to collaborate in order to make sure the hospital is flowing and patients are getting the best care possible.

    Cons

    For me, there really were none. The building as just been completely re-built, so the patient rooms have the top of the line equipment! There are also beautiful courtyards, as it is a strong belief that peace and nature can help healing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be a part of the action on the floor, you never know what is actually happening within the hospital until you see what the nurses, doctors, case managers, and every one else involved in patient care are doing!


  7. Solid company going through a lot of changes. It is becoming more corporate. However, many quality people work there.

    I have been working at Mills-Peninsula Health Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful health insurance, decent paid time off. Quality varies from department to department but overall they try hard to do a very good job.

    Cons

    Flat organizational chart means little room for advancement. Things take a long time to change.

    Advice to Management

    Create an ombudsman that employees could speak with and advise about needed changes.

  9. Big Brother, MPH, tells you when, how far, and how long you HAVE to do it without consideration of what Happened to you.

    Pros

    If you are a nurse, at least you can contribute your skills and knowledge. However, computer charting and inane ever changing polices knock the backbone out of what one is called to do in giving ample care to the patient. Here, it's about the money. For who? The hospital.

    Cons

    Little care, thought, or consideration of a Professional's needs. Work related injuries are shunned as being "much to do about nothing." Policies forever change without input from employees. Those that implement these policies are most often inexperienced and focused on only their "expertise" while disregarding the flow of the entire system or purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Management states that the hospital is about service, expertise, and functionality; however, the real protocol has little to do or concern about those who are doing the work. Nurses are treated with total disrespect.
