Pros

Feeling of satisfaction in helping children in need.

Cons

Lower pay than other hospitals. Poor communication within the hospital.

Advice to Management

Let the staff know what is going on so we don't sound stupid infront of our parents and patients. They trust us to know the process. The whole hospital needs to work on their customer service skills and phone manners. Parent's shouldn't have to go through the nurse advise line just to make an appt in the clinic, it's very inconvenient for them.

    Pros

    The people!!! The staff at CMH is so happy to be there and really hate to leave when they need to for personal reasons. This is a great place to start a job. A lot of education and orientation to the jobs at CMH. Great staff support and is somewhat good with making a schedule that works for the staff, especially if needed for school.

    Cons

    Most units are not very flexible on shifts other than 12 hours, unless it is an extra shift. Must work weekends and holidays at some point, even if you are just part-time.

    Advice to Management

    Would like more feedback tools, review tools, and to be more flexible on splitting shifts. Management needs to be more involved in the patient care to see what the staff is doing and get a feel for the problems that exist.
