    I have been working at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love the patients and my coworkers. The lab staff is amazing at all locations.

    Cons

    Upper management creates a horrible work environment. Patient care is supposed to be the first priority and it is NOT! Lack of supplies due to budget cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Put the patients first instead of a dollar!

    Pros

    Job security and wonderful colleagues

    Cons

    No paid holidays. They take time off of your PTO if you take a holiday off. Micromanagement by department Director creates a hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Back off of people who are doing their jobs, and more.

    I worked at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Wages; well above the norm. Good employees to work with considering that they are dealing with the same administrative issues.

    Cons

    Administration makes this a hostile work environment. The only constant in this organization is change. Upper nursing management turned over three times in less than three years. floors keep changing focus and places. Focus moves from one emergency to another.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at why you are not qualified to be a magnet hospital

    I have been working at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Co-workers, for the most part. Money is good. New state of the art ED with all private rooms is lovely. Aesthetically pleasing environment.

    Cons

    Not enough nursing staff, high rate of ED holding patients, Poor Management, lots of turnover in staff, underlying hostility in the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff well and the patients will be happy. If the staff are happy the patient outcomes are generally better. Stop the turnover in administration. It is frustrating for staff to come in to a new "Boss" on a regular basis. The employee never knows exactly who it is safe to turn to to discuss personnel or patient issues.The fact remains that all managers have a different and unique managerial approach. Some managers are micro-managers and others are almost anonymous because they govern so freely. From my experience at CFVMC-ED when the facility gets a good nurse manager in the ED, hospital administration tends to over work them, pile endless amounts of delegated "busy work" and in general "burn out" the new mangers. Hospital administration is also extremely political and "clickish"! If the work environment was on a more even and level playing field more actual work might get done. Instead along with all of their other duties the Nurse Managers are constantly having to look over their shoulders to see who is trying to stab them in the back today. The general ED staff nurses are good people for the most part and love their jobs or just plain have bills to pay or they would not subject themselves to the hostile topsy turvy work environment at CFVMC. For me I have noted that my past employer's who focused on providing excellent basic medical care in a truly caring fashion not only caused an improvement of staff morale but caused profit margins to increase. These employer's focused on allowing the nursing care givers to do our jobs without constantly harassing the nursing staff about "The Budget"! Most nurses went into nursing because we have a desire to ease human suffering. Not because the money was/is great! Yes there are those types of nurses out there but, those nurses usually weed themselves out and get out of direct patient care. Yes there are those days that I leave work and just know that I would be happier literally happier digging canal ditch with a spoon. So, please, management, Ya'll settle down a bit and get into a little bit more normal routine. Try to improve morale amongst the staff and bestow upon them a sense of ownership of the facility. When an employee is proud of the job they do the more likely they are to repeat that same excellent service time and again. Remember good nurses are NOT "a dime a dozen"! Good nurses are an "ENDANGERED SPECIES"! I do believe that you will not only see your profit margin increase but, you will also see a vast improvement in patient satisfaction scores! By the way it would also be nice if another Emergency Department with some inpatient rooms could be built in the very near future near Hoke county and take over Sampson Regional.

    I have been working at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There were great health benefits, and other benefits offered.

    Cons

    Unprofessional atmosphere, unfriendly work environment, unlivable rate of pay, and an unmotivated management team.

    Advice to Management

    Management may be wise to raise the rate of pay for support staff to a more livable income. Other employees seem to enjoy a much higher rate of pay which does cause low morale. Support staff is usually unappreciated and virtually invisible to others in the hospital. Management should revamp the entire support team by offering a more motivated, happy, and appreciated atmosphere. Negativity is the center focus in most meetings, and employees never seem to be shown what they are doing right. Management might need to come up with better ways to create a more happy and livable environment for all employees, and not just nursing staff.
