    Pros

    love the job as wound care nurse

    very busy with only 2 wound care nurses throughout the entire hospital

    Advice to Management

    Right now their is one wound care nurse with nurses which help her..she needs an additional co worker.

    I worked at Community Health Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly cannot think of one....

    Cons

    poor pay no staffing. more directors than staff no education poor benefits. employees made to take their vacation time because corporate isn't making enough money. no supplies. poor care. management is absurd nursing is grossly underpaid staffing is frightening...and I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of your middle management. get rid of all your directors. teach your staff how to do their job. pay people what they are worth. stop saying "it's a for profit hospital". take care of your patients. pay for employees certifications. stop hiring directors who have no idea what they are doing just because they are blond and pretty. You are an absolute disaster. I still cringe when I think about working there.
