    This is a large corporation that has multiple hospitals that are allowed to run quasi a independent.

    Cons

    Purchase supplies in bulk to save and start creating uniformed standards for mental hospitals

    I worked at United Health Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the teachers and support staff really cared about their students.

    Cons

    Worst management ever. Principal was a puppet to the corporation and all they cared about was meeting their budget and had total disregard for anyone trying to do their job in a safe and humane way. As a result, staff cut corners and conditions were horrible. As a teacher I was never supported. Administration resented any reports I filed about the dangerous working conditions. I was written up for filing these reports. Confidential information was stored in a basement and accessible to anyone. Personal information was left out for students to see. When students threatened the teachers management ignored their wrong doings. The rights of students were ignored as well. Too many things to list, but it was a very unsafe working environment. I had to leave.

    Clinical Systems Analyst

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at United Health Services

    Pros

    Steady work and teamwork, work for five hospitals and get to meet a lot of people. Learn many new things and new clinical systems.

    Cons

    On Call is horrible!!! On call is a week straight and you dont get to sleep because the calls dont stop and you work a full shift in the day while taking another phone line that the physicians call you on. Then you work a fulltime night shift because of all the calls. Call is being abused. Very dangerous if you are driving into work because you are exhausted from call. There isnt enough staff support to support the five hospitals and the helpdesk is short staffed and functions as a call center rather than helpdesk.
     Poor staffing for electronic health record implementation and support. Doctors are always upset because of the amount of support.

    Pay is decent but you get 1% raises each year. If you do tuition reimbursement you have to stay two yrs working for UHS as you are bound to contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to lead by example. Discuss changes with staff that are doing the work because it affects them. Some management staff need to go back to school to learn leadership skills and how to speak to employees as to not put them down.

    I worked at United Health Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Good benefits and there's always shift openings. You can pick up overtime very easily..
    -I hate having to write this because I loved the work. I really felt as if there was an opportunity to help our patients.

    Cons

    -The reason there are so many shift openings is because every morning supervisors go through the schedule and cut staff. It would be understandable if there was an abundance of staff, but there's not. Supervisors would pull staff from a 1:1 patient to go to another area because staffing was low.
    -Patient care is far from top priority.
    -Management is awful. The majority of them are completely unsupportive, unprofessional, and show favoritism to a handful of staff members. They turn a blind eye to some seriously repugnant behavior.
    -Patient safety falls by the wayside. There were several instances in the time that I worked there that a patient was hurt or injured and proper care wasn't given.
    -Some staff shows absolutely no respect to patients or their belongings. If a patient comes in with something a staff member likes, it's a free for all and management really cant be bothered to address it. Absolutely disgusting.

    There's so much more to be said, but I'm going to leave it at this: this 'hospital' is a very dangerous place. If you value integrity and your licenses, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some people there that are doing right, but the bad outweighs the good. That place needs an overhaul in the worst way.

    Pros

    the people i work with day to day are amazing and make the days bearable.

    Cons

    minimum pay for maximum stress, always understaffed with high acuity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get some management that will agree to stay first, then i would tell them to get more staff so we aren't always doing 3 peoples jobs each all day. having a new DON give notice after 2 weeks because she has never seen a company run so poorly should have been a wake-up all. don't you see that the door has been revolving constantly. 12+ people have quit in the last 12 months!!
