Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Northwest Community Hospital part-time

Pros

More competitive pay than nursing homes/other local hospitals
Magnet Hospital- Keeps up to date with current technologies/practices
Flexible staffing, and is very student friendly

Cons

Recent lay-offs and fluctuating census sometimes result in difficulty staffing the floors adequately. However, managers work hard to resolve this and I haven't worked any shifts that were past my physical limitations.
Patient care culture varies amongst units. Some units are more detail-oriented, while some medical units are a bit more lax.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Northwest Community Hospital part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Used to be one of the best places to work, however, poor financial decisions led to a long list of cons.

    Cons

    - layoffs, downstaffing, too many hourly employees, place is empty and feels very unsafe
    - too many made up awards for cardiology, radiology, patient care, having walls painted
    - performance reviews are based on attendance trends
    - too many incompetent and lazy employees who keep their jobs because they show up to work on time

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people who are devoted to patient care, not their school buddies.

    Pros

    My manager is great but our director is obviously under a lot of pressure financially.

    Cons

    Sick of hearing about money woes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to ideas of staff. You are stuck in old, safe habits.
