      Working for Erlanger Hospital

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Erlanger is one of the best hospital in this region and is one of best teaching hospital. Working for Erlanger gives the employees a chance to grow within the medical field. Erlanger has furnished a program for employees to go back to school and also Erlanger has brought in new doctors from around the country that can teach new and more modern techniques for procedures to better care for patients.

      Cons

      Erlanger has had a few bad years with financial issues, Issues with past CEOs and for a while its employee moral had hit an all time low which at one time affected patient care, but there biggest issue is the long wait time in their E.R. to be seen by a physician.

      Could be so much better.

      Pros

      There are some great people in this organization willing to support you in all of your endeavors.

      Cons

      If you aren't in a position involving direct patient care, you will find out very quickly that you are dispensable. You will be reminded in many ways that you are easily replaceable. The morale at Erlanger continues to decline and will continue until the powers that be realize that the bottom line will easily improve when your staff are treated like they matter. It takes a team, the feet are just as important as the head.

      Pros

      Flexibility and understanding if you have to take off for family, doctor's appt's etc.

      Cons

      Executive Management uses employee benefits as their emergency fund when financial trouble comes their way or they fear it can be seen on the horizon. Freezing vacation time, inflated insurance premiums that continue to rise every year, taking away employee discounts for any and all medical services we utilize while raising copays substantially each year. Forcing employees to use Erlanger Only services and physicians for healthcare needs. It can take months to get in to see a physician or have tests that a physician will insist is medically necessary. Physicians seem to expect employees to be overly understanding when optimal patient care is not what we receive is some cases. Employees are expected to display 100% loyalty to the brand of Erlanger when they are shown a tremendous amount of disloyalty in return. A 3% raise on January 1st does not make up for a 25% raise in insurance premiums effective that same January 1.

      Pros

      ~ Level 1 trauma center. ~ Lots of different areas to work in

      Cons

      ~ Way underpaid. Almost insulting. ~ They are so understaffed that there is no quality patient care. Nurses and tech have to many patients to fulfill each one's needs.

      Pros

      You can make your own work schedule good discounts from other companies and they do payroll deduction.

      Cons

      Short staffed the majority of the time. They do not offer any incentives to patient care technicians at all like they do for the nurses. They company does not respect the PCT and all that they do. The nurses look down on the PCT"s and have no respect for them.
