    I worked at Wishard Memorial Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Multidisciplinary approach to patient care, several opportunities for interactions with senior management, friendly staff - many have been there for years and take pride in what they do. They have a great mission to Advocate, Teach and Serve with an emphasis on the under-served population of Indianapolis. All of the employees know the mission and take it to heart when performing their jobs.

    Cons

    CPOE system and the process for updating/improving the system, education of the medical residents regarding the different IT systems at the hospital and hospital policies and procedures..most of this is done by the staff during "real time" while also taking care of patients.

    I have been working at Wishard Memorial Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The doctors st the out patient center are great. The genially care about their cliental with that said, they prescribe too many narcotics to their patients.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Some managers have a warped since of how a center is ran. No triage is done and it is impossible for the patients to get an appointment, except for those who work the system. This brings a flood of inappropriate patients in. The centers are full of cronyism and makes you wonder who's in charge. I would not recommend working there unless you enjoy spinning your wheels with no real change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new managers. Don't let your employees suffer for your year end bonus.

    Pros

    Provides services to every patient equally of socio-economic standing. Has many programs offered to community however the system is flooded. As a nurse I feel like I'm doing a great job to for our patients. Many of the staff work together as a TEAM.

    Cons

    With the system being flooded it takes a while for patients to get seen and commonly that is a complaint. However, having the opportunity to have services is the first key. Refining is the next goal- currently being worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Issues always arise with different levels of management. Upper administration is understanding and really tries to help. Middle management does not always either have time or is not stating understanding of issues. Also sometimes hard to get feedback on status of issues and situations.
