Pros

Educational opportunities are very good.

Cons

New upper management not in tune with the needs of current employees. I feel he thinks everyone can be replaced at his whim

Advice to Management

Direct managers are terrific, but they have no influence on the new CEO. He wants to make a name for himself with the HCA Corporation at the expence of all staff RN's

    I worked at Regional Medical Center of San Jose full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only pro was the staff I worked with.

    Cons

    Overworked. Understaffed. Demand good patient satisfaction but due to patient load make it impossible. Upper management totally detached from patient level. Don't listen to suggestions from nursing staff. Nurses don't take breaks and clock out before finish charting because are not allowed overtime. Was there 40 years and continued to get worse after purchased by HCA.

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with staff. Expend necessary funding for education. Don't expect nurses to finish on their own work time. Increase nursing assistants in staffing.
