I have been working at Providence Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Decent wages. Patient interaction. Dedicated Employees. Career opportunities.

Cons

Less commitment to local communities. Engulfed by bigger system. Declining Health Benefits. Push for productivity without considering cost or other solutions. Push too hard on Bedside Caregivers. Managers hamstrung and not allowed to think outside the box.

Advice to Management

Consider a move toward cost of employees, rather than numbers of bodies to provide care. Roll out less initiatives and help staff accomplish the ones already in place. Come out and interact with staff. Add some fun to the workplace everyday. Happy = Productive= Success.

    I have been working at Providence Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people I work with are great! And the patients are great. Work schedules are great.

    Cons

    Staffing is getting tighter to the point of forcing a dangerous decline in the quality of care employees can provide.

    Advice to Management

    Shadow a nurse on a busy day and see what hurdles we have to overcome every minute of every day.
    Time management and team work are great ways to increase productivity, but there is a point where these work factors cannot surmount the overwhelming task and documentation burden.
