    Pros

    High pay and nice people

    Cons

    Staffing ratios are a huge issue, way to many patients per nurse, not safe. PCT's are very lazy. Doctors do not know how to coordinate with each other and it is at the expense of the patient. Very disorganized and frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Administration needs to realize how staffing and treatment of nurses is affecting their nurse turn over rate. When more than 6 people quit on a unit at a time, that has to show you something is not right with the structure of this organization.

    Pros

    The people are nice. It's a small facility so you get to know everyone.

    Cons

    Patient care is awful. I would not come here for any kind of care. The nursing staff is very mean. Profits are more important that quality patient care. You are constantly in fear of losing your job to more layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in modernizing the facility and hire people with a more positive attitude in the nursing departments.

    Pros

    Fantastic Professionals never bored. Good clinical programs.

    Too much focus on profits . Affects staffing ratios.. Job combining very common.

    Pros

    Very satisfying for a first job as you are able to become familiar with the entire hospital and the employees in most departments.

    Cons

    The hospital needs updating. It has the space, but not the money to expand the therapy department.

  9. Work is fulfilling, and coworkers are excellent.

    Pros

    awesomeness of fellow staff nurses
    autonomy and flexibility
    opportunity for advancement/department transfers

    Cons

    lack of supplies
    sometimes staffing isnt optimum

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staffing and patient satisfaction more than your budget. Through adequate nurse:patient ratios, improvement in infection rates and patient happiness will follow.

    Pros

    Friendly, upbeat and positive environment

    Cons

    Advancement is not good
    Pay is low compared to other hospitals/or similar positions

    Advice to Management

    Increase in pay goes a long way. Increasing the workload consistently without pay makes me and other employees not put forth 110% effort.
