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

    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.

    I have been working at Abington Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Knowing that your able to be a positive person for patients who are sick. Helping or just having a small conversation with the elderly who may not have family members there with them during their time of need.

    Cons

    Overworked, duties constantly being added to job your description and management unappreciative of the work being performed. Admissions positions that were of another salary grade were phased out yet to be placed on another and lower grade making those employees who previously performed the job reapply for those positions. The salaries not comparable to the City Hospital at least 2 to 3 dollars lower . Yet the demand of patients is just as much or more as a City Hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Before making decisions on how the job can be performed and your staff can better be utilized speak with the staff that's doing the job.
