    The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

    Nov 25, 2020 - Registered Nurse, BSN in Harrisburg, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval

    Pros

    The good: great mission and values, Sisters of Christian Charity still very involved. The nurses and aides are generally really great and welcoming. There is a lot of great teamwork.

    Cons

    The bad: Staffing is not great. Ratios are too high for nurses and aides (when we have an aide). Management gives some lip service to needing more staff but it has not happened in the years I've been there. There is high turnover. The ugly: Several months ago, the staffing dept took over the schedule and now staff are being forced to work on their weekends off and days previously approved as vacation. It is "self schedule" but then staffing "balances" the schedule and moves you around.

    It is a job

    Oct 10, 2012 - RN in Camp Hill, PA

    Pros

    50% off remaining balance of bill if you used HSH. Must use HSH for your medical needs or you pay higher deductible. If you are admitted to another hospital you will pay $500 deductible. It is waved if you are admitted to HSH. Everyone is a team player. Benefits are cheaper than other area hospitals but still expensive. For a family it will cost you about $165.00 per pay for health coverage. Eye and dental is cheap.

    Cons

    If you have a chronic or serious illness they will find a way to get rid of you. Your illness makes their rates go higher, cheaper to get rid of you. With you for life is a lie! I have seen it happen six times in past year. Also if you have over 25 years with the hospital be careful you will not make it to 30. You will be gone. Cheaper to hire a young person out of college than to keep the long term employees.

    Pros and Cons

    Jan 21, 2016 - Registered Nurse in Camp Hill, PA

    Pros

    Good rate of pay, lots of overtime available; good hospitalists and ER providers (mostly), although we have lost some due to merger with Geisinger; almost all RN jobs are (3) 12hr shifts per week

    Cons

    Ridiculous patient loads (as many as 8 pts each in the ER, NOT divided by acuity, this happens daily), awful insurance since the merger with Geisinger (we can ONLY use Holy or Geisinger providers AND they force us to provide access to our personal health records in order to qualify for reasonable insurance rates); no corporate policies, so everything is managed by putting out fires: true example, someone complained they had no pillow in the ER, suddenly "leadership" made huge furor out of making sure EVERY patient has a pillow! Even though we have no bp cuffs, 20ga angiocaths, or ancillary staff...

    50/50

    Feb 13, 2013 - Nurse in Camp Hill, PA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The team work is generally great among those who are involved directly with pt care, CNAs, RNs, lab, dietary, PT, RT, etc. On the floors, nurses and CNAs assist and help each other trying to manage overwhelmingly huge and unsafe assignments and provide good care. Pt care staff takes very good care of the patients, therefore we get excellent feed back from patients, yet senior management still complains that we don't do enough and our scores aren't good apparently. Decent benefits and good opportunities for education are provided at Holy, but all health care facilities have that. If you really need employment, go work for them, the staff will do their best to ease you in, help you, and include you in the team, but don't expect any support from senior management, because you will not get it. Best wishes and good luck to all the wonderful nurses, CNAs, phlebotomists, RTs, PTOTs, physicians, OR staff, etc, etc...!!!

    Cons

    Too many to list. There is no loyalty from management towards their staff. The above reviewer is correct, employees that get older, have some chronic illnesses or other flaws that is not their fault, get discarded like trash, there is no compassion or dignity for the people who make this hospital a good one, the ones involved directly with patients. You would believe this is a hospital where everyone gets treated with respect, not so. I have seen excellent employees terminated for "nothing", tears in their eyes for having been treated that way. Senior management is ice cold at best. Hard to believe they are nurses. They also don't like people who think critically, because they worry that they could possibly find out about their heartless methods. They are full of promises about better staffing , etc, but those are all empty promises, I have worked there many years and nothing has changed in regard to staffing, nothing. With you for life? That's a big joke. Magnet status? They do not deserve it one bit!

    Pros

    Great clean general atmosphere, friendly and appreciative patients and families

    Cons

    Very hard to get a position, long wait before a call back... Don't work there if you aren't strong-willed and ready for some passive agressive behavior from employees who have worked there for many years.. Must prove yourself to coworkers instead of having a positive outlook of your personality and work ethic.
