    I worked at Hahnemann University Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    best coworkers and managers to work with on our floor. generous tuition reimbursement amount. opportunities for CE's. Nurses are in union. good communications among doctors, pharmacists, and nurses.

    Cons

    Although nurses are in union, not all the contracts are being met, such as we rarely get uninterrupted break time. very busy and physically demanding. recently employeed PCA's which puts nurses at 4-5 patients at any given time.

    Advice to Management

    Patient safety should come first, not the company's profit. Cutting down number of nurses and bringing in PCAs is not going to help with patients' safety and satisfaction.

    I have been working at Hahnemann University Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great and everyone works together to make it through the shift, great way to learn time management, good first job for experience

    Cons

    Management cuts every corner they can to save $$, nurses are either cancelled, pulled, or understaffed, RNs are given more and more responsibilities with less and less support, lots of young nurses and high turnover rate, terrible 'raises' per experience acquired, recently hired personal care associates are also understaffed and overworked, charge nurse has a full assignment on top of charge duties

    Advice to Management

    This hospital is wildly unsafe. There needs to be more respect for the employees, their livelihood, and quality patient care and less focus on the hospital making as much money as they can. I unfortunately do not think that will happen.


  9. "Lack of Support/Resources"

    I worked at Hahnemann University Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Physicians and Co-workers were great to work

    Cons

    Lack of support and resources, unreliable management, and persistent office politics

    Advice to Management

    HR - Listen to your employees about management. Execs - Hire someone to change the culture surrounding health institutions. By putting your people first, you will drive up your revenue. Look at the data!

    I have been working at Hahnemann University Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are getting better. Staff are nice to each other in some departments. Education repayment and ability to seek higher degree's. Union protection, wages coming up.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Lost a lot of specialties. Staffing cuts, re-assignments, and equipment hasn't been updated since the 80's

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap, bring in good specialties to increase revenue. Invest in the facility or sell it to a system that will do so.
