    The discipline program needs to be upgraded. Some people get eay to many chances on different violations of company policies.

    Be more honest with employees regarding the hospitals situation as far as financial problems, merging with other healthcare institutions.

    I worked at Ellis Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance, people keep to themselves, jobs are rewarding.

    Cons

    Ellis often has mass lay offs, little regard for employees as people, low salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Management should treat employees like people and consider how employees care for patients and their quality of work instead of looking at numbers. Employees are trained at orientation that they should focus on "patient-centered care" but in reality, Ellis makes it clear that the most important thing is to make money.

    I have been working at Ellis Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Ellis hospital could be an adventure. The diversity of this place is such wonderful. Also the benefits are good

    Cons

    They are implementing to many changes that we the staff don’t approve. We want our overtime’s back. Also the census ratio per nurse it’s ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work conditions for everyone in the hospital

    I worked at Ellis Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff brings their heart to work every day. Since of camaraderie, family we help each other and look out for each other. It felt good working with compassionate and people with great heart always advocating to provide the best care.

    Cons

    ED gets to not give report when transferring patients when they are taking a lot of inexperienced nurses who’s lacking critical thinking and time management, provide them with very short training so no one to hold accountable. They are sending unstable patient to unit with no staff increasing patient acuity. I would never want to be a patient in the ER when I use to work there. The nurses are burned out and tired of the lack of support from management.

    Advice to Management

    All the management who was supporting the staff are all gone. The people who work there already bring their heart to work they wear it on their sleeve every day. There was no need to pay outside theatre to have a stupid talk on customer service. Now we have to save money. I worked places were PT ratio 5:1 in NY city and provide yearly raises and create an environment staff feel valued. Remember without them their would not be no Ellis they are the backbone and we need to support them if we need them to stay. Good luck their will be retaliation and those nurses are ready for change
