    I have been working at Our Lady of the Lake RMC full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the staff lived the mission and core values. Very updated on current technology. The work is hard but the staff works together to help each other. There are many smart and intelligent people working at this organization. I recently had surgery and the people were excellent!!!

    Cons

    There are lots of changes in this organization. It would be great if acute care staff would be able to share in the activities that are meant for the staff to be accommodated. Acute care staff can hardly make time for breaks and lunches, they should be able to take food out and enjoy it once they can take a break.

    I worked at Our Lady of the Lake RMC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Most of the staff lived the mission and core values of the organization. The onboarding and orientation is second to none, and technology is better than most companies.

    Cons

    The leadership that affected me and my role, did not always live the mission and core values of the company. There was no career development to retain great employees, and the pay was not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your good people, so that your retention rates get better. Please live the mission of the organization.

    I worked at Our Lady of the Lake RMC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very large christian-based organization. Allows open prayer

    Cons

    No Education Department for continuing enrichment in patient access or for initial new hire. Really big problem. New employees are hired with no or very minimum experience, but horrible training is provided. Very disorganized. Slap in the face by department directors to the dedicated missionaries who make this facility possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider training patient access employees from the beginning for 90 days. Require national certification within six months of hire.

    I have been working at Our Lady of the Lake RMC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff for the most part are very friendly and easy going.

    Cons

    Completely understaffed and heavy patient ratios especially considering the acuity of the patients. Low pay, not great benefits. Lazy ancillary staff that don't want to help, everything falls on the RN to do. Empty promises of hiring more staff. High turn over, I don't know how this place is considered magnet status. Constantly out of supplies and nutrition for the patients. The meal service is a nightmare the trays take a long time to come and patients get really agitated and some have had their blood sugar drop from waiting too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more RNs staff your units better, pay them better, hire better employees (ie. CNA and CSRs that are more capable with good work ethic)

    Pros

    Great benefit package and work environment.

    Cons

    Very busy so you have to be flexible and ready to fill in case of environmental disaster e.g. hurricane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have an ex employee who leave in good standard through no fault of their own e.g. to complete treatment for cancer. They should be given a chance to return to work and not be rejected.
