    Pros

    First, it's kind of the only game in town but aside from that, the employees are predominantly nice and well-intentioned. There are a few who act like you are intruding on their turf but that's true anywhere.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem like there's a rhyme or reason for staffing ratios. Some departments have people sitting about chatting all day while others have staff running around like crazy people with too much to do.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employees when designing procedures.

    Pros

    New management really cares about the patients as well as the employees. Work is hard and challenging, but a good place to work. Family comes first when it is needed.

    Cons

    Not enough employees. There has been change, thus growing pains

    Advice to Management

    This is tough. You have to work hard and prove yourself.

    Pros

    I really liked my co-workers. They hire good people, and everyone seems to work really well together.

    Cons

    I did not like the patient to nurse ratio. There were not enough nurses to care for the more acute care patients. I rarely got a full 30 minute lunch break.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be willing to work on the floor to help with high workloads.

    Pros

    The floor staff are amazing to work with. These are people who love what they do and want to make a difference in peoples lives. The PPL is good.

    Cons

    The CEO needs to get a clue. Always talking about making cuts, seriously underpaying their nursing staff, since they are the only game in town other than clinic or nursing home.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your nurses!! Quit cutting their pay or changing their opportunities to get ahead. If you need to make a cut cut your own salary!!

    Pros

    One of the highest paying employers for RN's the Black Hills area, but still far below the national average.

    Cons

    Poor benefits Rotating shift work No student loan repayment

    Advice to Management

    encourage more balanced and healthy lifestyles for employees- The happier and more rested your employees are the safer and more satisfied your patients will be.

    Pros

    The wonderful patients. No others.

    Cons

    Management is disgraceful. It is supposed to be non profit however everything is done in regards to making money! The patients and their families have no rights. What the doctor's say goes no questions asked.

    Advice to Management

    You better change your ways! One day another health care system will come in when that happens no one will choose to use Regional Health.


  11. Do NOT recommend working here!

    Pros

    It's a job. The staff that I work with are the only reason I stay.

    Cons

    Management is horrible! They constantly are passing the buck or even worse blaming the staff for the problems. When told about issues nothing gets done about it. Direct supervisors will choose to ignore a problem or completely deny that they are the problem. Staff retention is awful and getting worse. In over 6 years of employment over 16 months of that time has been spent in MANDATORY overtime while managers take 3 week long vacations. They are not leaders they are bosses. They do not lead their staff through the tough times they simply stand back and boss them around to do things all the while telling them they aren't doing it good enough. They do NOT support continuing education even though they say they do. They will schedule you a night shift the night before mandatory education like ACLS, BLS, etc. Overall, I would NEVER recommend working for this company. Staff satisfaction is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Start treating the people that actually do the work better. Listen to them; especially when they come to you and tell you the problem. Take responsibility for your own actions. Get rid of direct supervisors that are the reason for so many problems!
