I have been working at MultiCare Health System full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Staff were consistently inconsistent. They did the best that they could but did not have the tools nor the initiative to do so.

Cons

Leadership was fantastic when the cameras were on, but awful and toxic and downright mean when not. Patients were not as well taken care of, not by the staff nurses, but by the management setting the "rules". Too much was expected by too few people and most of the few were entrenched and not encouraged or wanted to do what was the right thing for patients. Too much thinking about Rules and the Finances that patient care for sure took a back seat.

Advice to Management

Do want you say -- if you can actually achieve that, then this will be a great place.

Given the many changes in healthcare, financial stewardship is more important than ever. But, it should never take priority over quality patient care. It’s disappointing to hear that your personal... More

    Pros

    Some managers are wonderful, great nurses.

    Cons

    Very money focused and not patient care focused try to constantly increase work load and find ways so patients can only use their facilities. Waste money on massive marketing and talk horribly about and try to put out other companies out. Very snobbish but all talk. They are in business to make money. Not really an real "non profit"
    Some clinic managers have medical experience and some don't. Some don't know the difference between a nurse and an MA. They have MA's training Nurses!

    Advice to Management

    Be more family focused and listen to your employees. Have medically trained clinic management only.

    I have been working at MultiCare Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work for an agency that helps people at the most vulnerable time of their life in their own home. Agency supports patient choice and is a non-profit (instead of a faith based health system). Independent work. Flexibility to limit amount of time interacting with negative forces in the company.

    Cons

    Lot of turnover, high stress, high demand. Lot of people grumbling about how it used to be. All healthcare is struggling with medicare/medicaid cuts and changes in health insurance which ripples down to everyone's job. continually asking for more and more for less. No coverage for vacations/sick days. Poor management causes flux in census resulting in staff being low census'ed or way over booked. Work itself carries its own stress of accumulative grief.

    Advice to Management

    There hasn't been a consistent management in the last 3 years to provide advice to.
