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

    Pros

    Union Pay Scale. Doctors and Nurses that really care about Mental Health. All the hours you want. I was hired part time and routinely worked 12-16 hours overtime per week(meaning 52-56 hours). 20-40 per pay period was not unusual, especially around holidays. $2500 in two weeks for a Nursing Assistant!. Pace is not realistic; but if you are in a bind and really need some cash, the work is available

    Cons

    Politics. Behavioral health is very "Provincial". They treat you like personal property. Working in another ward is treated badly. If you cover a shift in the Emergency Department, in addition to the Psych Ward; you can guarantee a 30 minute talk with a supervisor discouraging you from doing that again, and grilling you about your dedication to "The Unit" like it is some commando operation. You also risk a UNION GRIEVANCE against you from a co-worker: stating that they should have been offered the shift based on seniority. They will harass you. REVIEW EVERY PAYCHECK thoroughly! They are sloppy. You have 48 hours to file a revision form.(The claim is 3 days in the policy, but it never works becasue of the accountants "Discretion") Make sure that all of your fees and Dues are being properly deducted: You can be terminated for 30 non-payment of dues, happens all the time; then you go back on a re-hire and a 90 day probation, again: making an entry-level pay that is 60% of normal pay. They will jerk you around and give your 1.5 (time-and-a-half) instead of double-time that you are entitled to for e.g. holiday weekend

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture. Make it a goal for the UNIONs and each department to cooperate as if all of the employees actually work for the same Hospital; not like it is a competition for census between cardiac, skilled, intensive, mental, etc .

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

    Pros

    JRMC does not charge a per unit charge which is customarily $400.00 per unit (APCE) and there are 4 units within the required ACPE course material. A second plus is that they pay a small stipend of $1802.00 monthly (901.00 bi-weekly).

    Cons

    You're not considered an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Update JRMC's pastoral care computers (Hard drives are 'Windows XP.' "XP" is at least 12 years old and VERY outdated. In addition, allow the pastoral care residents to surf various religious sites as required. Currently, any and all religious site ARE BEING BLOCKED!

    I have been working at Jefferson Regional Medical Center (Arkansas) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We received over a $1.00 raise per hour;. Short drive to work

    Cons

    We are nursing computers not patients,
    Night shift on my unit has 2 RN's ` We do not have a 11pm -7am PCT unless we have more than 12 patients; We get a 3rd nurse if we have more than 15 patients.- all total care; 3pm-11pm PCT's charting baths, patient turns and hours rounds that are not performed; RN's complain and are accused of creating hostile work environment; Management response: They only have an 8 week education. However; when State is expected we have plenty of staff.

    Hate the 2 week track schedule for night shift - no time for family life.when 1st day off is sleeping work M,T, F, S, S W, Th.

    Advice to Management

    You placed camera's -- watch what the PCT's are doing - it might open your eyes

    Pros

    Physical therapists are a great group however they are not contracted by the hospital.

    Cons

    Not very clean
    hospital doesn't treat staff real well,
    patients always seem irritated by doctors

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff better. Don't overbook nurses and others. Help patients to feel stronger within their chambers and not so cooped up.
