Pros

Everyone is respectable towards each other. We always ask questions and try to figure what the best solution is together. We as a team help each other out by taken care of the co-workers data information about their patient so that part is finished. Sometimes the department can get busy-answering phones,speaking to doctors and answering any questions the families or patients have about there procedure. Management was nice and tried to work with you on certain aspects.

Cons

Sometimes the communication between management and employees was not achieveable.
There was no advancement and if there was an open shift available because someone left you hardly had the chance to be chosen.

Advice to Management

I think there needs to be more communication between managers and employees and when there are empty shifts you should tell the current employees first and then go out of the box for other applicants.

    I have been working at Portsmouth Regional Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A culture of continued improvement and staff engagement. The facility is always looking for areas of improvement and takes in opportunities head on with transparency. The senior leadership team is engaged in continual improvement and engagement in the community. There has been opportunity for career growth and development available and the hospital is on the cutting edge for treatment and therapy of many service lines.

    Cons

    Part of ensuring continued improvement is close management of resources. Recruiting of talented clinicians had been difficult to support growth and improvement.

    I have been working at Portsmouth Regional Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're a doctor or nurse (or upper management!) you'll be treated and paid fairly well.
    The majority of the staff is competent and caring.

    Cons

    Management seems to be exclusively composed of rejects from the rest of HCA.
    A little joke:
    Q: How was copper wire invented?
    A: Two HCA execs fighting over a penny.

    On the patient care side, if you're not a doctor or nurse, you DO. NOT. MATTER.
    You will be underpaid, understaffed, and your needs will be ignored.
    Equipment choices will be made for you by people hundreds of miles away, with no experience in the field.
    Dictates are handed down from regional headquarters in Virginia, by people who know nothing about specifics of the hospital or market, and care even less.

    Pay is crap. You’ll make (significantly) more starting at Dunkin Donuts than you will as entry-level staff at PRH.

    Benefits are mediocre at best, especially for a huge, extremely profitable hospital chain. You must use PRH affiliates for everything, unless maybe the ER doc is out of network then you’ll get hit with the full bill.

    Human resources is broken. 3 months from application to starting is expected.
    Management will make the right noises and say they'll get people hired, then six months later you'll be wondering why the entire department is still working 12 days in a row.

    I could go on, but you get the idea.

    Advice to Management

    Fix HR. I don't care how, but it's broken and everybody knows it.
    Stop fighting over every last dime, and spend the money to actually run this place as a Level 2 trauma center.
    Stop insulting your employees with empty promises and staffing cuts.
    You know those people who aren't docs or nurses?
    They matter too. Ignoring or firing them won't work out well in the long run.
