    I have been working at Havasu Regional Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The doctors and most of the staff are great.

    Cons

    Management is non existent. Providers have no say in the way the office is run and who is working for them. Good staff is not given the tools to do their job. Non productive staff are catered to. Everybody is expected to do the job of 3 or more people. Patient's are not the main concern, only the bottom line as in profit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding Providers without the staff to meet their needs and the needs of their patient's.

    I have been working at Havasu Regional Medical Center as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong job security because no one would want to stay here for long. Get your experience and leave. This is the biggest employer in town.

    Cons

    My coworkers have stomach pains and suicidal thoughts from working for the lab. Bullying from top down. Management will not lay down punishment. Lack of leadership means that its more beneficial to be bad at your job. We have had a new lab director every year for the past ten years. Scheduling is a mess and even with 17 phlebotomist on the payroll we still can't adequately staff the lab.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with strong management skills.

    I worked at Havasu Regional Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Hire you under false pretense, and stick you where ever they decide to. Cna's have too large of teams, there is no team work to manage these patients safely.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more core staff, and up your staffing matrix to make SAFE patient care possible. Teach the nurses to work at a team. We are all there for them, rather it be admitting, housekeeping, cna, or nurse.


  5. "CNA"

    I have been working at Havasu Regional Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    great team work when it comes to RN to RN or RN to CNA, good atmosphere with coworkers, cafeteria food is decent and very affordable

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care about their employees, manager of the unit only enforces 5:1 for RN patient ratio when it is convenient. otherwise 6:1.
    CNA gets as many as 15 patients. They do everything they can to avoid calling someone in to help out. No free charge RN or "team lead"

    Advice to Management

    ENFORCE THE PATIENT RATIO AT ALL TIMES NO MATTER WHAT!!! Also, establish a lower patient ratio for CNA, 15:1 is just not safe. Listen to your employees when there are concerns and please at least pretend like you are addressing your employees' concerns.

    I worked at Havasu Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were fair. At one point coworkers were fine. Aii that changed..

    Cons

    Total discontentment within unit. Immediate supervisor was terrible. 5 people in 8 months left. Patient satisfaction of hospital is below 50%.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to keep good staff. When things are confided to you don't ever turn it back against employee. Keep adequate staffing levels. Keep in better tune with your staff. It will head off any problems before the become full blown.

    I have been working at Havasu Regional Medical Center as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay was decent for my field.

    Cons

    Director never available. Very dirty. Staff is rude. Staff constantly fights and no one to supervise. Staff can wear what they want. HIPPA violations!!!!!! Directors of departments are not knowledgeable in that department. Company has a new CEO if not every yr then every other yr. The supervisors become scape goats for incompetent directors. Go some where else. Don't get stuck in that HavaHell desert.

    Advice to Management

    Hire credentialed directors. Not directors who once oversaw a department but really had fully trained manager. Make sure directors are held accountable and for goodness sake clean the damn hospital. Oh yeah and get that new Oncologist out of there he is worthless.
