    I was given a great opportunity to expand my knowledge and learn a new skill that can only be learned on the job!

    I worked at Parrish Medical Center (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers were the best.

    Cons

    They stopped giving merrit increases and people stopped going above and beyond. You can only say, "Be thankful for having a job so long."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before making the decisions to hire outside companies to manage "certain areas" within the hospital it would be wise for administrators to spend time in that area. It is certainly possible that your employees could have handled the "job at hand" without putting the department in the red by hiring a manager with a very large salary (that was totally unqualified for the job, with a salary that was unaccounted for). The hospital paid a large amount of money to hire this company when the employees that were already there were perfectly capable of doing the job. Why not give them raises and more responsibility? It felt as if someone at the top did not want to take the time to see what was needed in the department to produce better outcomes. When in fact they could have saved a lot of money by using the resources that were available. At some point, our opinions stopped mattering which is what intrigued me about this organization to begin with. Why even distribute the Gallop survey if you are not gonna use the feedback that employees give you?

    I worked at Parrish Medical Center as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Benefit package
    - SOME of the staff

    Cons

    If you happen to be in the sight line of a VP, Director, Manager or Supervisor that just does not like you, you can be let go for absolutely no reason. No matter how long you work there, you will be let go without warning and without notice. I saw MANY terrific employees ("Care Partners" - that's what they call staff) that were wonderful and valuable additions to the organization, but were there one day and gone the next. Be careful who you trust. It is not a "Healing Environment" for staff at all....it never will be as long as current leadership is in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the Board of Directors. Start at the top of this organization and work your way down. You will eliminate the majority of your problems.

    I worked at Parrish Medical Center full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Parrish is one of the largest employers in Brevard County, however, there is a lack of people skills present in some of the supervisors. They pay well and have excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Human Resources lets Department Supervisors handle the disciplinary duties, what that means is that there is no eversite for the Supervisor and no recourse for the terminated employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your employees names and supervise your Supervisors when terminating employees. Some Department Supervisors are not people-friendly.

    Family-like among coworkers until new hospital built; then backstabbing and major butt-licking.

    I worked at Parrish Medical Center

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits and the patients for the most part were receptive to education and info from the RNs.

    Cons

    Senior management would not listen to workers about problems with managers, or the middle management did not pass along problems between workers and immediate managers. Middle-management did not want upper mangement to know of any problems so it made them look good. Quite a few excellent nurses left or were forced out. These were nurses with years of experience. You could build up a large amount of PLB (paid leave bank); but when you wanted to use it, you were told "we will be short handed if you take days off". Upper management always sided with doctors whenever there was an issue with the nurse and doctor--no matter who was actually right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each member of management should work the floors on each shift once a month and not be given the easiest job or team and do not identify yourself as a member of management level. You need to see ALL the problems associated with each shift and see for yourself that your daytime job in the high up secluded office does NOT offer very good solutions to the problems. Listen to the workers--they come up with some very good solutions that really work.

    Pros

    Since they are the only hospital in titusville---I guess I would say to make money

    Cons

    I worked in Home health as a traveling PT. I found the nurses to be old school and are not very rehab orientatated as well.
    The director is very fake person, though appears friendly on the outside. The office staff are very nosey and are huge busy bodies. Once, when my drivers license was expiring I recieved a call from 1 of the busy bodies asking me if I had renewed it. They must have gone through my file and wrote the expiration day down on their calender months in advance.
    The management in home health, like to talk down to the employees and keep them under their thumb. They always asume the worst in you and are constantly checking up on you. The managment doesnt work in the field, except when they decide they need to come out and harass you for some ridiculous company policies. Most of the talented nice nurses end up leaving them because they can't stomach them for too long. They have you performing so many ridiculous company rules that you either get burned out or give lousy care. Since I don't give lousy care, out the windows go the policies. Then, they make you feel like a dirt bag while they stuff their faces with cake/goodies in the office. I respect religious people but not when they force you to get in on their act. At Parrish (including the hospital) they make you read these stupid godly healing stories. They also make you repeat the really lame parrish sayings outloud. They seem to think they are the only ones who can give good health care.
