      I worked at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good salary and benefits package

      Cons

      Management doesn't seem to know what it's doing. One of my former bosses summed it up nicely when he said "All they do all day long is go around putting out fires." There is no planning. The physical appearance of the place is terrible. Carpets look ratty and stained. And despite what they say, management doesn't care about its staff. Little simple courtesies just don’t exist. They don’t think that way. When I left...

      Advice to Management

      Stop the incessant meetings and get out among your staff. Learn compassion. There is a major focus on patient satisfaction yet you seem to forget that contented employees will always make for a better patient experience.

      I have been working at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      3 - 12 hour shifts

      Cons

      Very poorly staffed especially on nights makes it dangerous for everyone involved, especially the patients. No union or raises for nurses aides. Alot of micromanaging /negativity and not alot of positive feedback towards staff.

      Advice to Management

      Staffing issues really need to be dealt with and management should make it an even more positive and friendly experience to work in this facility.

          I have been working at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center

          Pros

          Great location. Salary and benefits okay. Patients mostly from nursing homes and the local communities . Most have many chronic illnesses and you can learn a lot from them. Great respiratory therapists!

          Cons

          Very high turnover due to lack of support and bullying from management. Very few overworked educators. New grads must hope at least one senior nurse on to ask questions. Too high nurse patient ratio as our patients are very sick.

          Advice to Management

          Need a kinder , more supportive atmosphere otherwise staff will continue to leave . More educators on off shifts. Stop write ups except for attendance and other important things, not nonsense.
