    Pros

    I like the work environment. Everyone gets along for the most part

    Cons

    management sucks. They are concerned more about the employee's interaction with one another instead of patient safety in my opinion. There is really no room for growth in this field

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Currently the system is doing well financially.

    Cons

    Administration is lacking in culture and mission

    Advice to Management

    There is no sense of purpose at this organization. Everyone is just a cog in the wheel. On the administration side management needs to bring some focus to the value of everyone's contributions. People need a sense of purpose.

    I have been working at Abington Memorial Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hospital is clean, the staff is surface-friendly, the CA pay is exceptional compared to other hospitals, and as a float pool CA, I'm always able to pick up extra shifts.

    Cons

    Extremely short staffed with nurses in every department. You may go weeks without working on the floor because the hospital needs you to watch patients on suicide or safety precautions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more nurses. That truly does affect the entire flow of a department. If the nurses are spread thin and stressed out, they have limited patience for clients or anyone else. I have witnessed nurses throw things at one another out of anger, get berated by a patient's family because she can't get a box of tissue right now because her other patient is 5 seconds away from a rapid response, and skipping breakfast, lunch, and dinner because there is simply no one to cover for a 15 minute break.
