    Pros

    Great team, the best. Like a very disfunctional family. Everyone is right there for you, to support you. At this time we have an amazing boss. We have an incredible team of critical care docs. Every Nurse works very hard, crazy hard some days and still saves lives, prevents suffering, and manages to negotiate the labyrinth of resource allocation under impossible circumstances. At times it feels like a mash unit. But wow we really have saved so many lives.

    Cons

    Advice to upper Administrators : I have seen a few hospitals in the area and they all have the same problems. Someone upstairs is dictating to the front line staff things they do not understand, and don’t seem to understand despite instruction. It seems that someone is misallocating funds, mismanagement. People are not numbers. It is important for nurses and doctors to have support to take care of their patients. Yes money matters, it is a business, it’s how we all get paid, But calling off a nurse at 5 am to staff to the nub, only to call in another nurse at 6:45 am and paying them time and a half. It’s just common sense. And why would you not put a clerk in each icu and ccu and spend 12$ and hour to someone, than pay a nurse 65$ an hour to answer the phones, and open doors for families, rather than take care of the actual critically ill pts. We are expected to preform flawlessly for very good reason, these are people. These are people’s lives. We must balance our priorities, and earn our company’s mission. Administration should ask the nurses what is needed to improve pt care, improve satisfaction scores and then listen. Research and education should be encored in a tangible way by making the culture one of support, and shared governance.
    End of rant.

    Advice to Management

    I have seen a few hospitals in the area and they all have the same problems. just in different variations. Someone upstairs is dictating to the front line staff things they do not understand, and don’t seem to understand despite instruction. It seems that someone is misallocating funds, mismanagement. Where is the money going? Why are we over budget? What is the budget? Maybe we need to readjust the budget. People are not numbers. It is important for nurses and doctors to have support to take care of their patients. Yes money matters, it is a business, it’s how we all get paid, But calling off a nurse at 5 am to staff to the nub, only to call in another nurse at 6:45 am and paying them time and a half. It’s just common sense. And why would you not put a clerk in each icu and ccu and spend 12$ and hour to someone, than pay a nurse 65$ an hour to answer the phones, and open doors for families, rather than take care of the actual critically ill pts.

    IT department is terrible. The Cerner merge has been a disaster.

    Get better organized and get everyone on the same system. Cerner is terrible. Should have went with Epic!

    Pros

    This is a great place to work, I have been here for over 15 years now, so I think I can say I "know" the place. The people here in all areas are kind and show human kindness, even when not asked too. I have seen a lot of changes here and they are for the better. Management has a clear view of what the communities needs are and that is our mission to deliver compassionate, high-quality, affordable health services; serving and advocating for our sisters and brothers who are poor and disenfranchised and partnering with others in the community to improve the quality of life.

    Cons

    Sorry to say the Cafeteria

    Advice to Management

    Change your staff in the Cafeteria to folks who want to be there or give the current staff the incentive to want to be kind and want to work there..
