    I worked at Western Medical Center- Santa Ana full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers were nice, and they had CNA's most of the time.

    Cons

    Transportation is slow and very rude, when they had sitters on the floor, they took it out of the staffing making the nurse work without ANY HELP!! Charge nurses/management tend to have favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do NOT take the CNAs from the ratio, sitters should be extra. Please pay your nurses more because all the good ones will eventually leave.

    I worked at Western Medical Center- Santa Ana part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Quality care to trauma patients. Friendly staff. Good "teamwork" oriented culture throughout the hospital. Grossman burn center is awesome.

    Cons

    Broken/outdated equipment. The clientele is mostly uninsured/homeless/uneducated or some combination thereof. Makes it really hard to give quality care with such limited resources.
    The pay was definitely the worst I've ever seen. After 6 years in nursing, they offered me what I made as a new grad. Pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place is so broken, I'm not sure it can be saved. Patients with insurance don't want to come here because it's perceived as "ghetto". Hospital doesn't appear to have any contracts with managed care companies. Doctors don't want to bring their patients here. All if not almost all of the inpatients originate in the ER. I really don't know how this place has kept it's doors open for so long.
