      Family-Feel community, but many challenges. Great potential for growth.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Family-feel community, feel supported by my peers -Adaptable scheduling -Opportunities for education and experience. Lots of opportunity for training.

      Cons

      -Too many demands, too little compensation--staff members are leaving due to lack of financial incentives. -Charting system is inefficient, often duplicate charting, waste time charting instead of caring for patients; new requirements for charting almost every other week. -Constant logistical challenges--ie, poor communication (have to call pharmacy, phlebotomy, materials, dietary MULTIPLE times in order to receive what you need) -Throughput is either too slow or way too fast, no consistency. -Many doctors fail to write orders or don't correctly input orders, requiring the nursing staff to fix order sets. -Confusion over which provider is caring for patient, especially for cardiac surgery patients (no clarity over whom to call for orders). -Only ONE charge nurse for ICU is not sufficient for support needed. -Not enough staff support: staff are floated to other units, yet often no resource staff is available to aid in patient care or to land crashing patients. At best, we'll have one PCT; usually, no PCT available. Occasional tripling of patient assignments occurs at nights, as well (fortunately, less common during day shift). -Excessive micromanagement; almost-constant audits. -Staff communication device, Vocera, is full of bugs and has poor voice recognition. Requires repetition of names and requests.

      Pros

      Great Benefits, even offers insurance for your pets. Beautiful new facility not far from the highway. Easy free covered parking. The grounds are absolutely stunning. Competitive salary amongst healthcare industry which says a lot because I have worked within some of the most renowned hospitals.

      Cons

      Biased management, preferential treatment of certain employees. Job expectations and hours of employment changed multiple times without notice. Employees that were supposed to be equal as in job titles were not treated as such. One lead person was the ring leader that never worked unless management was present to occasionally crack the whip. This team lead spent all day “making copies”, yet was prized as an exemplary lead. I have never worked for an organization where the leads are missing for numerous unaccounted for hours, leaving the new employees to figure things out on their own.

      Pros

      Good opportunity for advancement. Plenty of opportunity in the different aspects of healthcare.

      Cons

      Benefit package is good, but healthcare is getting more restrictive to using only Adventist Healthcare for things ranging from physicians to imaging. It is low cost to stay within the system, but if you want a specialist or a procedure outside of the system you will have to a lot more.
