    I worked at Bon Secours Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind. Not the best place for new nurses to start. Mean staff, short staffed, too much gossip

    Cons

    Do not orient new staff long enough- as a new grad you get about 5 weeks training (some of these spent working as a Nursing assistant due to short staff) supposed to have 12 -
    Nurse patient ratio is ridiculous, dont get to spend hardly any time with each patient and provide proper care
    Staff are cruel to new nurses- get annoyed with questions, older nurses talk bad about you every time you turn around and treat you like an idiot
    Not as patient focused as I thought- used to be that everyone I asked had something good to say about an experience at st francis...nowadays hear only negative things
    Short staffed- constantly having to work as nursing assistant d/t shortages- staff also call in sick regularly whenever they want its like if you dont feel like working one day, just call in sick no biggie

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees! Environment needs to be more supportive for new nurses and talk to your older nurses about openly speaking negatively about new employees...it DOES get back to them

    I worked at Bon Secours Health (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Mission and concept created to "Serve" those in need

    Cons

    Management-consists largely of non-educated persons "accidentally" rising within the system based entirely on "connections" Demonstrative of an extreme clique mentaility! Pushing out employees dedicated to providing service and care. HR refuses to investigate complaints of harassment and signs off on retaliatory terminations! The mission betrays itself with it's approach ( selection) of middle mangement

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's and base your actions upon evidence supported with FACT! not hearsay of employee's with "Agendas"!

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my first few years working there most of the staff was nice and I felt that I was helping people my boss was wonderful and life could not get better. I think the benefits were good and the longer you stay with the company the more PTO you get I did think that some of the people that worked are generally cared about me I have great co-workers in my department

    Cons

    I'm sorry to say that discrimination is still alive and well at Bon Secours I had a boss from hell and she wanted to upset me to no end she wanted to break people down she enjoyed seeing them sweat and if you were white and she really wanted to mess with you. Supervisors unfair they lie and do not give you credit my supervisor wanted to make my life hell and also other people treated bad too. Also they have their own little favorites like other supervisors that come along look like they're there for support when they're just trying to make things look good for that boss I saw a lot of people people leaving very good people leave that work supervisors and they couldn't stand it anymore so they left I wish they would have stayed I finally had to leave because of my stress level and to keep my sanity.

    Advice to Management

    Don't go around scaring your employees act like you care about them show them some compassion like you did me at first and then I understand that the person that made my life hell was finally let go later but the damage had already been done and what the sad part is that I would have stay there until I retired because I really love my job

    I have been working at Bon Secours Health part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many great people at the staff level in therapy dept.

    Cons

    Senior Nursing and clinical leaders are our of touch and have no idea what they are doing. Productivity expectations are too high. Company is profit driven and it shows. High burn out risk for staff.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders who are competent, care about people and have character as opposed to those who are just there for a paycheck and retirement benefits.

    I worked at Bon Secours Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Off on weekends and this is good for a call center. Team events were a plus.

    Cons

    The manager was incompetent and did not have a college degree. Training was horrible. The younger team lead did not know how to lead the team. She did not motivate anyone. There were too many tasks going on at once.

    Advice to Management

    Train your leaders on how to train staff so that everyone has consistency. I suggested that there we're alternating tasks, some do emails, some take calls etc. It was very overwhelming to do everything. Maybe it could just be a center where employees just answer emails, unassigned cases. Management just needs help in making the workload a little better for employees, It was very stressful for me, I dreaded coming to work. Half of the team transferred out of the department due to lack of good management.

    I worked at Bon Secours Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot of over the years. In the beginning it was a good place to work, it felt like being part of a family. Made many good friends. Great teamwork in some departments.

    Cons

    Short staffed everyday 2-3 people, every shift. Lots of unexperienced nurses being hired and not properly trained. Management focuses on everything but patient care. Patient satisfaction is talked about all the time however most EVERY department works short, housekeeping, nursing (for sure), kitchen staff. You cannot provide adequate patient care without the people to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent. Do not base promotions, raises off of who your friends are. If you are going to be in a position of management telling others how to do their job then most likely you should know how to do their job. For example, if you are the director of a unit then you should have previously worked in the same type of unit. When you treat your staff like they matter and that you care then they will go above and beyond to help you. Hire some staff, some experienced staff. No one wants to go to the hospital when they are sick and be taken care of by a brand new nurse especially if that nurse sits at the desk with ear buds in watching movies and tv shows. Get back to the roots of what Bon Secours use to be. For the upper management writing checks for (1/2 million- 1 million) for equipment that is never used- GET RID OF THEM, they are wasting your money. Hire someone who has a clue as to what they are doing not someone that can talk a good game, they need to be able to walk it too.

    Pros

    Small town. that needs local care

    Cons

    Port Jervis
    I worked there for 30+ years and fired 2 days after my anniversary, Excuse was to many call outs even though I had 30 days in sick bank and my mother got ill and I needed to help her. they have done this to over 2 dozen other long time employees so younger less expensive nurses took their places. They have closed maternity ward, outsourced ER unit and now controlled out of Virginia. Now they supposedly sold to Westchester Medical and are turning into same day surgery and cutting beds in half, Should no longer be called a Hospital

    Advice to Management

    Turn back to a Hospital and try and restore Community Hospital
