    Nursing in Boston

    Oct 25, 2020 - Registered Nurse in Boston, MA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    incredible team of talented, dedicated and compassionate professionals. Even though the staffing levels have been lower than before the hospital merged, it is still higher than most non-unionized hospitals.

    Cons

    The high level of mental and physical stress required leads to an increased level of staff injuries.

    Pros

    my peers are wonderful to work with, my immediate boss is fair.

    Cons

    The Union, they don't support the membership. They are not aware of upcoming management decisions that involved the laying off of a large number of nurses and ancelery staff. The health care bill is taking it's toll on healthcare in Mass and BMC is no exception.

    Culture of unhappiness

    Aug 21, 2014 - Registered Nurse in Boston, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Its a diverse population with interesting medical cases.

    Cons

    Inadequate leadership in nursing. From the CEO, DON on down to even the staff on units. Mismanagement of time on staff RNs part and management in general. Each unit I floated to, the culture was complain first, overrate acuity. DOH, JCAHO guidelines aren't followed properly or staff has no/limited knowledge of them. As one reviewer said there is a unwillingness to change, however management needs to address staff more appropriately, as opposed to derogatory. Lack of respect all around. During my tenure multiple units have been closed or minimized but there is never a benefit to Nursing only to the management. Time off is seemingly difficult as a great majority of staff have been there for years. Layoffs, forced retirement began to a larger extent with the current CEO. Both campuses have unions that do not fight for staff when the need it. multiple co workers, RNs tried repeatedly to contact MNA, with limited avail, regardless their situations were not helped in anyway that would justify union dues. During my years there, there were multiple clashes with staff and patients. Whether it was a socio-economical disparity or racial disparity can be argued (with both being correct answers)

    If you like public health, BMC is a great place to work

    Feb 12, 2015 -  
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I feel very confident about the competency of my colleagues. They are a talented team of providers who are supportive and easily approachable. The directors also do a good job at advocating for their staff. If you like public health, BMC is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The on-boarding and mentoring process for new hires is sub-par. The EMR system is also cumbersome but they are transitioning to EPIC in the spring. The support staff are unionized which can make it difficult to get rid of some of the less qualified staff.
