    Pros

    My co workers in the pharmacy department were great. IMH is a small hospital, so you can get to know people throughout the hospital. There are opportunities to perform different jobs and expand clinical skills.

    Cons

    The hospital lacks some of the resources of larger institutions. Lots of changes are made. The changes are all being made to improve efficiency and quality of care.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve workflow. Improve consistency troughout the hospital especially with the EHR.

    I worked at Iredell Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    coworkers, small family like environment, easy to find way around hospital, most employees are easy to get along with and very helpful, teamwork when working short staffed

    Cons

    always demanding employees work more hours to cover "holes", mandatory overtime. If you sign up for overtime you will be called off when possible to eliminate the possibility of your getting overtime, then you may be called back in and then sent back home the same day. sometimes end up working four days and end the week with less than 36 hours. little to no raises, some manager belittle employees and blame the employee when things go wrong due to short staffing. High nurse to pt. ratio, 7-8 patients per RN at night. High staff turnover

    Advice to Management

    staff leave for the reason of being short staffed, and the cutting of their hours and being placed on call. If you have extra staff, great keep them there as much as possible especially if they want to work. It equals better patient care which can compensate for times that are short staffed and HCAHPS scores are lowered. Also stop blaming the staff for the poor scores and take ownership of them because in reality it is usually due to short staffing that complaints arise. Employees have also been blamed for high turnover of employees, however this is untrue, the reasons listed are the reasons they leave.

    I worked at Iredell Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are average, Generous PTO accumulation, usually has opportunities to pick up extra hours, most coworkers are easy to get along with, good learning experiences as new nurse, easy to get time off, plenty of training time

    Cons

    Physicians are incompetent, condescending, and often are rude to RNs, especially when having to call them at night to the point where we are scared to call the doctor in fear of "getting an ear full". Managers are often out of the loop on what's going on the floor. They hand out more expectations without giving us resources. Often worked short handed. Towards the end of my employment we were doing primary care (no CNA) with the same amount of patients we would normally have with CNAs (6-7 patients). Hard to find necessary equipment for patient care, including vital sign machines, bedside commodes, bed alarms, and oxygen equipment. Beds are all different and some very old and not working properly. Computer system is run on Windows 98, computers often freeze, especially during med pass. Not just one computer but most of the computers. Hospital needs updating. Rooms are small and difficult to get around in. Too many new changes with little notice. Bullies are not punished. There is definite favoritism in the department I worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with expectations and give the resources needed to meet these expectations, hire more people to properly staff the floor, please revise some 20+ year old policies, update your equipment and don't get the cheapest equipment-you get what you pay for. Listen to your employees that are on the front line of patient care! If you get what we need for optimum patient care then your precious HCAPS scores will rise!

    I have been working at Iredell Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small, community hospital setting makes it easy to work with same doctors/staff on a daily basis. Policy driven. Management usually easy to access.

    Cons

    New upper management. Much staff turnover since new management came on board. Education department lacks in providing adequate and informative education for staff. Salary capped for experienced nurses - after you reach the cap, you get a yearly "bonus" check. Always seem to be short staffed. Budget cuts....you wonder if your job will be the next to go....older, experienced nurses job scared.....afraid they will be replaced by newer, less expensive nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Work on ways to retain staff....older, experienced nurses are a vital part of the healthcare team. Show some appreciation of your staff. Nurse managers need to actually staff on the unit some so they will know what is going on.
