    I have been working at North Kansas City Hospital

    Pros

    They trained well. I enjoyed working with professionals.

    Cons

    Very strict rules, not family friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's the people that make the experience good for their patients. It's difficult for a person to maintain positivity, when management makes the work environment negative.

    So glad I left

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice physical place to work. Building is being updated but is far behind other area hospitals in decor. Food is fairly good compared to most hospitals. Traditional retirement program.

    Cons

    Disrespect abounds. If you are a nurse expect to put your license on the line. You are urged to violate nursing standards and hospital policy. If you have an integrity stay clear. You will not be promoted for experience or expertise. You will however be promoted if you party with the "right people" If you are a normal working person that cares about patient care, and your family don't bother. Pay and benefits falling below competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward integrity, promote excellence, actually care about patients and healthcare more than medicare reimbursement or pandering to staff physicians.

    So much micromanagement on a collegiate model. Very confusing, disrespectful.

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very nice facility physically, undergoing continuous remodel. There is a new state of the art ED which just opened within the last year. Employee appreciation dinners twice per year, and night staff are not left out. Computerized documentation is user friendly.

    Cons

    Every unit follows its own policies,make floating as a nurse to another unit a nightmare. Point system used for tracking and monitoring call-ins utilized methods with make the best, most responsible employees appear as irresponsible. Orientation was dismal. I was told an exit interview was customary; no such interview was offered.

    Former Employee - Pbx in North Kansas City, MO

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There are some great people and overall the company is supportive of employees. It's been around a long time and isn't going anywhere. People in the community think highly of the hospital and many employees seem happy and proud.

    Cons

    Top people make all the decisions. It's not what you know, it's who you know. Lots of favoritism in some areas. Certain departments are dead ends and others get lots of attention. Employees that are rude, incompetent and have bad attitudes don't get fired, they just get more power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to input and recognize that employees at all levels can contribute. Don't be afraid to get rid of the bad apples.
