    I worked at Baptist Memorial Health Care part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great RN staff--very knowledgeable and caring. Fair salary and good shift differentials. Lots of opportunities to make time-and-a-half even for non full-time staff. EPIC charting

    Cons

    Heavy patient assignments. High RN turnover. Management. Very slow computers--they spent millions buying EPIC but never upgraded the computers or servers!

    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Health Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You learn to be self-sufficient.

    Cons

    I have been a nurse a year now. So far my entire nursing career has been at Baptist , and I can see why retention is an issue. For example, there is not enough staff for the demand of new patients, and yet the hospital (Baptist-Desoto) is building on to the ER to hold even more patients. Another issue is a program called KATA. There is a constant creation of new "KATA procedures" that should be stopped. Actual direct patient care staff input is NOT apart of the creative process. The managers/higher ups DO listen to the actual floor staff. They know the problem, and yet nothing is done to fix them. There is always a new "innovative" step being added to the direct patient care staff members workloads. Almost ALL of these steps are pseudo-fixes. Last but not least, the constant harassment to come to work on your off days.

    Advice to Management

    The staff is overworked and piling on more busy work to do is unhelpful.

    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Health Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee recognition for service, friendly staff and administration. Clean facility.

    Cons

    Constant focus on length of stay in the emergency room: managers out of touch with what goes on in the ER vs their plans to maximize HHCAPS

    Advice to Management

    Try spending time working or side by side with your employees before implementing these ridicukous standards and goals

    Pros

    Great place to work. Cooperative and helpful staff as well as supportive management

    Cons

    Support staff such as patient care techs, are not compensated adequately for their valuable contribution

    Advice to Management

    Revisit compensation for patient care techs so quality staff will be drawn to that valuable job and allow us, the RNs do our job monitoring and caring for patients

    I worked at Baptist Memorial Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Actions reflected their faith
    Good management

    Cons

    Higher than normal workload

    Advice to Management

    Find front line staff members, ask their input on workload, ask if it makes them want to work elsewhere, and then value that input in future decisions.

    Pros

    I work in the Women's hospital so it's a little different than the main hospital. Pros are benefits, scheduling is flexible, and nice perks during nurses week.

    Cons

    If you get a point it stays on your record for 2 years, working weekends, and the Women's hospital base pay is lower than the main hospital which I think is unfair. Ohh and the most ridiculous thing is we dont get paid extra for working on holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Make pay equal across hospitals, bring holiday pay back, and invest in weekender program
