    Great supportive staff that is always willing to pitch in and help when needed. Flexible and understanding scheduling. Awesome overall work environment

    great co-workers, clean, feel good about patient care

    I have been working at DCH Health System (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Immediate coworkers within individual departments generally seem to work well together.

    Cons

    Middle management doesn't seem to have enough time to learn how to lead, mostly because they're scurrying around responding to whatever crazy idea senior leadership has come up with on an impulse.

    Advice to Management

    Do a real assessment of leadership skills at the executive level, especially VP. Stop campaigning to try and convince employees that they care - they'll care when you show them that you really have their best interests at heart and treat them with respect.

    I worked at DCH Health System (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is really hard because I worked there less than a year. I was so dissatisfied. Sometimes I would drive home crying because it was so bad.

    Cons

    Market value of pay is super low. The benefits are expensive and doesn't cover much. The employees are pretty set in their ways. Not much flexibility unless you are PRN. The employees were very difficult to work with. Management lacked in backbone but excelled in micromanagement.

    Pros

    Benifits and being able to care for patients is the only thing that kept me there

    Cons

    Not a good place to work if you like team work, because there is no team work

    Advice to Management

    Stop being friends with your workers and make them do there job

    I worked at DCH Health System (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Utilize clinical skills. Free parking at Home Health office. You can pick up extra shifts at the hospitals in your spare time (see below)

    Cons

    If you work HOME HEALTH you will not HAVE any SPARE TIME. There is no work/home life balance. You spend all your time charting. The managers and director in HOME HEALTH create a hostile work environment and cause undue stress to their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Need new HR and Home Health managers and they really need to get a new clinician software program and ditch the old one. Also needs complete retraining on healthcare ETHICS and TEAM BUILDING in home health.

    Please hire more help
