    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Brandywine Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People that work there and have been there for a while genuinely care about the hospital and the patients.

    Cons

    Management gives no thought to nurses and aides with their actions. Short-staffed constantly creating unsafe conditions. Salary and benefits nowhere near competitive with other local hospitals in the area. As a for-profit hospital it is all about the money, not about the patient care and caring for the employees. Things will hopefully get better as Reading Health takes over, but that may take a while to see changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your nurses.

    I have been working at Brandywine Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Direct management is great! Understanding, genuinely cares

    Cons

    Higher management or administration does not care forces high patient ratios with inadequate staffing

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff, visit your floors more, care a little our half as much as your staff does
