    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Ernest Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a high standard of excellence as a company overall, it was established by direct patient care practitioners from many different fields and they are primarily focused on patient care-as health care companies should be and they are ample opportunities for employees to take part in a programs that give bonuses and incentives for excellence. Hard work does not go unnoticed.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced setting that is very overwhelming to many potential employees. Some people can not handle the high standard of excellence in care that Ernest Health requires their employees to have, thus those people leave with bad feelings and attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a high standard of care and continue to provide the support and tools for employees to be successful.

    I have been working at Ernest Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small size of patient population makes for more personalized care. Diversity of staff minimizes cliquish behavior. The scheduler also takes into consideration personal needs and requests, which is a big plus over computerized first come, first served scheduling.

    Cons

    Occasional high turnover on staff which seems endemic to nursing profession these days.

    Advice to Management

    Just continue to keep the staff informed of the updates on patient case management! Sometimes we get information last-minute as nurses as opposed to the family.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ernest Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The facility was brand new and had a beautiful rehabilitation gym for therapy.

    Cons

    Administration, rehabilitation managers, and supervisors that were unfair how policies concerning employee conduct towards other employees were handled.

    Advice to Management

    You need people that hold management and supervisory positions to be trained to remove themselves from the situation, especially when they are all friends, and be able to be fair when making decisions regarding all employees within the department. They should have special training for those positions and not just be put in that position, and assume they know what they are doing and are capable of handling the difficulty of the job.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ernest Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The patients, most of the staff (not administration/leadership).

    Cons

    Very poor leadership/administration, negative work environment, unethical healthcare practices, poor work-life balance, leadership is not supportive.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring qualified, positive leaders who provide guidance and promote a positive stimulating working environment versus the opposite. Do not go against company policy and have a huge division between leadership and staff, its demeaning and makes for a negative work environment. Provide leaders who actually lead and educate versus finding the negative, bullying, making employees feel negative about themselves and their jobs.

    Pros

    Paycheck. Benefits. Some of the employees are cool. The place is clean and spotless! If you enjoy attempting to make a difference in people's lives, there is opportunity here.

    Cons

    The schedule. The method of requesting time off. The persistent gossip and need to know every dirty secret about every employee and their family (but they seems to exist everywhere). No where to chart/work outside of a station that promotes chit-chat and delays productivity.

    Pros

    It is a job. The therapists there do an outstanding job. It is a beautiful facility and the floors are really shiny.

    Cons

    Imagine junior high girls promoted into senior management and you can picture senior leadership both at EHI and at NCRH. They have neither the capacity nor desire to do much beyond gossip, tell each other how hot they look, and worry about bling (eg. money).

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership, the owners and principles at EHI don't listen to feedback except from a) investors or b) former Health South friends so they could care less about any other feedback. They care about making money and having shiny floors. Everything else associated with the basic tenets of either healthcare or being a good employer are ignored.

    Pros

    I have been working for Ernest Health for a little over 2 years now and I really see no downsides, good people, good work, people helping people, all good things.

    I really have nothing bad to say, sometimes work gets challenging but that is why we choose to do what we do.

    Pros

    The foundation of this company is built on their guiding principles. They "walk the talk" and put patient care at the core of what they do. Room for professional growth especially if you are able to relocate.

    Cons

    Growth company so expect high expectations to perform and hit goals.
