    Pros

    The staff on 5E at CFMC is very helpful and everyone works well as a team.

    They often run low on supplies. Its also a very small hospital so resources are limited.

    Pros

    Close knit community hospital. Willing to train new grads.

    Cons

    The hospital does not have a lot of funding. Units are often short staffed with bad RN to patient ratio. High employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Should give employees raises in pay in order to have a lower turnover.

    I have been working at Community First Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Community Hospital, busy and diverse. Great learning experience.

    Cons

    Poor management. No raises in 5 years. Culture is pretty bad, and everything is in silos. Sudden changes happen overnight with little to no communication of who it will affect. Everyone nit-picks everything you do, more against you than you think.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers, pay better, trust and be trusted. Offer opportunities for advancement, or at least have open lines of communication. Don't overload and burnout your employees. If short employees/staff, offer to help! You are qualified.
