    I worked at Catholic Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Attempt to keep home care nurse's patients close together to facilitate time organization
    Excellent compensation and bonus incentives

    Cons

    Overload nurses with cases to manage leading to unsafe practices and frustration
    On Call which is meant for emergencies is frequently used to complete visit "overages" for the day
    High turn over rate due to putting nurses out in the field prior to completion of their orientation
    Due to short staffing they frequently have to mandate on call
    Management has a "bully mentality". Not an exaggeration.

    Advice to Management

    Allow new trainee's to complete their orientation as scheduled which includes a gradual increase in case load to avoid high turn over rate, which in turn would aid with short staffing and improve On Call.

    Longevity is nothing. Many nurses leaving due to disrespect. Managers have favorites. No one held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to retain expierenced nurses. ICU has lost too many expierenced nurses glad I don't work there anymore. Won't take my family there. Minimal expierenced nurses.

    Pros

    Good caring nurses and aides

    Cons

    Old physical plant and intense competition with Kalaida and ECMC. Can't we all work together better for the common good of our patients and their care? The patient is where we are at. That should be our primary concern. They are the reason that we are all here- to care for our patients and to help them get better, physically, mentally and spiritually. Stop the politics, the one-upmanship and improve our patient care

    Advice to Management

    Continue caring for our nurses, aides , cleaning and dietary personell. Remember that some of us MDs are in private practice. Certainly the PAs, NPs, Hospitalistsi , including hospital intensivists, Trinity Medical Group, hospital neurologist and others are very important. Do not forget about us dinosaurs! We need more hematologists, psychiatrists, rheumatologists to come to our hospital. Our hats off to the 3 pulmonary/intensivists from years past. They always did a sterling jod

    Pros

    staff very knowledgeable and competent. administration values dedication and competency by yearly increase in pay without the presence of a union. in the present condition this system operates well without a union. all system locations have compatible staff and managers. managers very flexible and understand the value their staff provides on a daily basis. administration is very responsive in a timely manner to important issues.

    Cons

    the only issue is parking during busy periods. however, a shuttle is provided to staff to a designated lot as well as a parking ramp is available on site. this inconvenience only affects one system site.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing. listen to your staff....most have good ideas.

    Pros

    I was so happy to hear that their mission statement included the statement that we are to help the poor,needy, and the sick...

    The Catholic Health System of Buffalo was fair in wages and in had incentives for advancement.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons for this company.
