    Pros

    Great for building experience, learn how to be proficient at IV's, and looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Nurses tend to lean on Techs to do a lot of tasks that they don't want to do. Staff is overall great.

    Pros

    Some really great coworkers, easy commute, smaller environment

    Cons

    Horrible CEO who looks at both staff and patients as numbers not people, his major focus is on profit. While I understand with reimbursement cuts hospitals have to closely monitor budget but their are ways to be financially responsible without sacrificing quality of care......to me it seems fairly easy to make the connection between doing the right things for staff and patients, providing quality care and ensuring safety - all these things will increase numbers, increase profit and increase patient and staff satisfaction. Keep cutting as numbers go down ....keep sacrificing quality of care until nothing’s left. Bottom line you have to invest and put your heart in if you want the hospital to be successful and see a profit.

    Advice to Management

    Do what’s right for patients and make decisions based on how you’d want yourself, your family/loved ones and friends to be cared for. Would you want yourself or your loved ones to be admitted to a floor or treated in an emergency department without adequate staffing .....having delays in call lights being answered, delays in pain being managed and possibly even delay in rescue of life threatening change of condition. Staff wants to provide excellent care that’s why they went into healthcare, give them the resources and support they need to do their jobs and give patients the care they deserve.

    I have been working at Bayfront Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    hmm, not much...the doctors are great to talk to and get orders from. Most respect nurses. Ipod touch to scan medications and round on patient.

    Cons

    This list is long. there is not a defined place to look at patients information, you still have to use multiple systems to look at patients information. IPod touch is neat because you have portable system but I can't look at lab values, doctor notes, or previous vital/output trend. You have to use another system for that. There is paper charting and we still have to verify and sign every other on paper.

    Staffing is joke, med surgery nurses float to a pcu level. On a pcu level you could have up to 6 patients with no free charge nurse, charge nurse has 4-5 pts as well.

    Management, haha they are too worried about threatening people and suspending them than anything. Oh don't forget let's test the staff to see how long a call light gets answered by going in patients room and telling them push the light and see how long it takes.
    Oh and pay is horrible, pays way less than other facilities for more work.

    Advice to Management

    Help staff, stop worrying about little things and get down and help. By calling the nurse to tell them, patient needs to go to bathroom or IV is beeping is not good enough. Be in charge and useful.
