    I worked at Indiana University Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Multiple job opportunities to choose from. Opportunities to grow professionally, skill-wise.

    Cons

    Gradual elimination of growth opportunities and earning opportunities (scant pay increases, significant reduction in pay grades), reduction/elimination of incentives, increasing ratios without adequate, competent ancillary staff. Corporate shows disinterest in maintaining seasoned staff and incentives to keep interest of less experienced staff, i.e, large turnover staffing issues, use of contractors. Corporate will survey staff for opinions, but doesn't give them a vote. Harsh/punitive attendance policy that makes staff made unhealthy decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit a more successful model of running a healthcare business that was followed before the current organizational name. Consider asking current staff how to make needed changes for the hospital/their roles, vs someone who has no experience in the field, or hasn't worked at the bedside recently enough to know and understand issues that require intervention. Don't be so prideful to think you know how to best make decisions any of the positions you manage, especially if you've never performed the role or performed it too long ago to be in touch with what it's like today.

    Pros

    This facility had strong teamwork among the staff and the managers involved staff in meetings and committees. The nursing schedule was consistent and there were no mandation policies.

    Cons

    At this facility supplies needed to be more organized. The equipment often would break down and needed to be fixed. The portable work phones often had low battery life or would drop calls in the middle of conversations.

    I have been working at Indiana University Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO PROS OF WORKING FOR THIS POOR EXCUSE OF A HOSPITAL.

    Cons

    There is so much neglect going on in this facility that it is absolutely unacceptable. It is not even at the fault of nursing staff rather than management who fails to adequately staff the units. Everything is about money. If we treat patients poorly and inadequately they will have to be readmitted for more treatments which means more money in the pockets of greedy corporate thieves that don't belong in healthcare! What happened to patient advocacy? I am appalled and actually have to mentally prepare to come into work. The icing on the cake is that staff has come to accept this as acceptable treatment of patients. Patients should not have to sit over half an hour in a soiled brief or urine stained sheets that have obviously went unchecked for hours because the edges have begun to dry. I don't understand why people put up with this! I guess it is because they have not known any better. Being an outsider in this hospital gives me that perspective. This would never be acceptable in the other hospitals I have worked for or been a patient of. My colleagues tell me to let it go because there is no use in fighting it. Unfortunately I cannot accept that for myself. If nobody else wants to stand up for themselves or patients, I will! IU Health should be ashamed! Where is the zero star option?

    Pros

    Co workers, but everyone leaves so fast

    Cons

    Very dangerous place to work, the staffing is horrible you will take6-7 patients even on telemetry units MTU with drips. They do not care about their patients or staff. The workload is horrible and every year they cut nurses and replace them with nurses aides who can not do your work! Every employee I know says they would never allow their family to come here for care and that really says something. This is by far the most dangerous place to work I have ever seen, most nights I see nurses crying and no one in this entire place cares! Every decision is based on money not care. Do yourself a favor and keep driving past this place!

    Advice to Management

    With the constant turnover wouldn't it be better to have better staffing and less training of new nurses who will only quit when they get off orientation. This team nursing thing is a joke. We can help them and they can not do anything to help us. Go by a unit at night no nurses anywhere because they are passing their medication 4 hours late and all the techs are partying on the internet because there is nothing they can do!
