    I worked at Good Samaritan Hospital (Los Angeles) full-time

    Pros

    The hospital staff is welcoming and a pleasure to work with. The IS dept. will teach you to work in the most hellish environment, after this experience you can go to war anywhere.

    Cons

    IS leadership refuse to lead. Professionalism does not exist. Malice is the name of the game. Gang mentality is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff. Practice honesty. Institute structure and discipline, then reinforce it regularly. Everyone knows that they will never be reprimanded and they take full advantage.


  4. "Upper Management"

    Cons

    No voice when it comes to upper management decisions

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and be open to new ideas on how things could be done for the better

    I worked at Good Samaritan Hospital (Los Angeles) part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary and Benefits. Some flexiblity with hours. Part time was 3/5 time for me. Computer documentation. Regular I service presentation and staff meetings.

    Cons

    Disorganized organization. Very little positive feedback, they made us field nurses feel responsible for poor revenue. Often gave out excessive workload, sometimes 7 patients to be seen in a 7.5 hour shift. Excessive documentation without enough time to complete it.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving morale, organization, minimizing and streamlining documentation. Former job. Retired from the job Feb. 2016.

    I worked at Good Samaritan Hospital (Los Angeles) (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The cafeteria offers nice grill food when the grill is working. Just ask for less oil to be sprayed on the grill!

    Cons

    Safety initiatives are not in place. There is no maternal sepsis policy, the maternal massive hemorrhage policy is not in place. It is scary and the liability is HUGE.

    Advice to Management

    It's a problem when you're not a part of a health system that measures perinatal initiatives and makes sure they are in place.

    Pros

    pay is good that is it

    Cons

    This is a very out dated backwards hospital, and in some units it is like going into a third world country where English is NOT spoken by nurses. Dirty work environment, abusive management and verbally abusive nurses . I have witness nurses throwing items at each other and refusing to care for patients. Horrifying. Union a JOKE

    Advice to Management

    Management is the issue most are shiftless.
