    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    In my opinion although many do not agree, the salary and benefits, the prestige of the institution, the pride in trying to help this very unfortunate population...

    Cons

    Loads of documentation...excessive, unnecessary, huge waste of time...system issues...wait times from pharmacy, respiratory, IV team, transportation, admissions, etc etc...too many systems waiting on each other all the time and ultimately the patient gets upset/affected (unsurprisingly)...trying to make any change even small and you will encounter huge amounts of red tape...you will need to get the approval of 15 different divisions...

    Advice to Management

    Still required to document with paper and pen...absolutely ridiculous for a hospital of this caliber not to have fully electronic medical records...need to streamline departments and workflow...


  2. "A challenging environment with excellent opportunites for early career professionals"

    Dificult to accomplish project goals due to extreme politics and lack of will/power by leadership to implement/enforce changes to challenge deeply embedded cultural habits.
