I worked at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

3 day work week which is the standard for RNs.

Cons

Disorganized . Cheap and antiquated equipment . A general lack of supplies. Poor compliance with infectious disease prevention standards. Poor support of nursing staff. Generally two PCTs on floor for 40 patients . Poor moral among employees and a high turn over rate. Appears to be driven by a culture of fear and punishment from the Chief of nursing all the way down.
Terrible pay with pitiful or no raises. Chief of nurses compared nurses to waitresses during general orientation :(
Oh there is so much more but why go on...
If you don't work here yet then run away. If you do then chances are you are hanging on until retirement within 2 yrs tops or you are talking about and planning to leave.

I quickly decided this place was not worth risking my license or health.

Advice to Management

You have your focus in the wrong place.
You are not a hotel that provides medical care.
You should strengthen your medical foundation first and foremost .
You will not be able to fool the public in the long term by offering them warm cookies at 3pm when Grandpa dies of a hospital acquired infection or medical error at 7pm.

    I have been working at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work with great people with great work ethics

    Cons

    The benefits are awful. High premiums, out of pocket, and deductibles. We only get one time off bank and it has to be used for everything. We get one day of PTO per month. We have no sick bank or vacation time.
    I am job hunting now for a better job

    Advice to Management

    Offer a benefit package that let's the employee know that you care about their life and their health. You are a billion dollar conglomerate and offer your staff nothing.
    Give more than the one $25 Target gift card for Thanksgiving/Christmas "bonus". It is so insulting (and it's taxed).
