    Current Employee - Per Diem RN in Brockton, MA

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fair-good pay for per diem.

    Cons

    Owned by Steward Health Care, a For Profit Company. All too evident the dollar is the bottom line. Staff threatened too often to keep budget down or lay offs....Because it is unionized, regular staff paid well, but Per diem not part of the union..substantially lower pay than regular staff for experienced RN. Regardless of experience, all per diem paid the same. Good for new inexperienced RNs, not experienced.
    Steward Health Care so cheap, patient care is affected.

    They often lay off middle management, especially if experienced and higher salary.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive to staff. Insist more on hiring experienced RNs.

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, has pretty good benefits, and salary is pretty decent. Worked on a really nice unit for the past few years with great nurses, need to leave due to hours/shifts

    Cons

    Management is trained to make money instead of taking care of patients and employees. They don't care that you haven't eaten all day or even had a chance to use the restroom in last 12 hrs

    Advice to Management

    Step down and see what happens on a day to day basis

    Pros

    Implemented and launched the new Room Service dining experience for patients.
    Meals were prepared and cooked to order just like dining out.
    The staff worked their butts off and patients appreciated their services.

    Cons

    Management was not supportive to their peers and staff.
    Employees who were not able to execute or focus on their job duties and not pass their evaluations were able to keep their employment.
    Management and Staff were very divided in many ways and areas. Very toxic work place.

    Advice to Management

    Management should demonstarate on being professional. Management should practice what they preach. Management should really focus on their hard working employees instead of coddling the employees who do not want to work or cannot handle their work load.

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Although the hospital has changed significantly over the last few years, it is still a great place to work

    Cons

    Upper management is consistently a problem. Frequently appears that they have no idea what they are doing. Thankfully on my unit,we do!

    Advice to Management

    They need to listen to staff and stop cutting down to bare bones. Lack of decent staffing rations has proven to lead to errors and frequently lawsuits. A lot of this can be avoided by doing the right thing initially. Thankfully for the team work many units have, we manage to do a great job despite staffing
