    I worked at Del Amo Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Cafeteria food was inexpensive

    Cons

    The units are not staffed appropriately. There are lots of things to be completed all at the same time which is virtually impossible with only two RNs on a unit.

    Advice to Management

    Reconfigure the staffing model and also implement a unit clerk/secretary to answer the phones, which never stop ringing.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Del Amo Hospital full-time

    Pros

    4 days counts as full time at this facility so you qualify for all benefits.

    Cons

    The new CEO Steve came in with an objective. The Hospital is trying to blame him for their incompetence, but in reality, he is exploiting all of the laziness in administration. People in prominent positions were too comfortable. Favoritism runs rampant in this facility. Nothing seems to be done logically. On top of that, the workers are very underpaid. I felt sorry for the Psychiatric Assistants there. That position is a double edged sword!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the rotting lot. Way to complacent. Out with the old, in with the new.
