Pros

The hospital is large enough to offer complete healthcare services, but not so large that the employees don't know each other. The CEO is concerned enough about employee satisfaction that he holds employee forums and employees are encouraged to attend and participate in. All concerns, issues, questions etc. are addressed and followed through on. As for the nursing department, there is a career ladder which allows nurses to advance their salaries based on their involvement in and out of the hospital, amount of education and experience, certifications, committees, preceptorship etc. Employee empowerment is encouraged, for example each unit has a unit board in which the staff is able to identify and solve issues for patient care improvements which works best for their own unit.

Cons

At present, there is a large nursing shortage on many units. Despite the shortage, Tenet has built another hospital on the east side of town, which in essence has diluted the nursing staff even further. Furthermore, within Sierra Medical Hospital itself, they have "opened" a new unit...as to how they expect to staff that unit when all other already present units cannot adequately staff themselves makes no sense whatsoever. Certain cuts have been made in the hospital which used to be quite useful such as the loss of a Diabetic Instructor, use of transporters/couriers to take lab specimens, pick up and deliver blood products to units etc, which has now fallen on the already overburdened nurses.

Advice to Management
