Pros

Many of the people are great to work with; they truly put the patient first and care that the patient is treated with dignity, respect and kindness. Most family members are also treated well - given information about what is happening to their family member. The surgical procedures are arranged and done in a very orderly process - meaning you feel that the hospital will do the operation you have agreed to have and that they will be competent and you will be ok afterwards. They are especially good with the OB patients. Everyone is working towards the goal of a healthy baby and mom. The family is made to feel important and security is outstanding for the safety of the baby.

Cons

Senior Management and Middle management are not good communicators. A potential decision was made to sell our Long Term Care facility and the staff were told the Friday before Christmas break! Decisions are not a process of getting information about process and people; it is bottom line only and this is heart breaking when so many of the staff love the organization and wish for the very best. A large change in management happened and this newest group appears to be the most unfeeling group yet. Schedules are another source of dissatisfaction with staff. Many nurses do not have input into their schedules and are expected to work long days with a larger than normal patient to nurse ratio. New nurses are not provided enough training, they are given a rudimentary orientation and then told to get it done! People are afraid to ask, and people are afraid because they fear retaliation, loss of job or demotion.

Advice to Management

Take time to walk through the units. Stop rushing through. Listen for the problems that are not people based but because of issues that happen. The nurses and staff that work for Nanticoke care for the patients very much. Additionally, it feels like many deals are made "back doors" and hidden until the last minute. It does not feel like thought was given to the patients and staff but only the financial line. The organization is a non-profit and yet, it's always money. People should count as a wonderful asset. The announcement of the sale before Christmas was an indication of how they value their staff.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Great team, wonderful opportunities for making positive impact in a small community, and networking with the larger case management community. Positive role models, pleasant and competent staff.

    Cons

    Seaford is a small community that in some ways lacks diversity, but is growing. The commute can be a pain if you do not live in town, but all in all the drive is well worth it.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is sometimes easier to continue working with what and whom you know, but knowing when it is time to cut ties can free a team to open to new and positive growth.
