    I worked at Kingwood Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow nurses were great. There is a good discount at the hospital cafeteria. There is free parking for employees. That's about all the pros

    Cons

    Real chance of losing your RN license. HCA is all about money, not patient care. The use an ancient version of Meditech that hinders patient care and proper documentation. Crucial medication is not readily available and can take over an hour to acquire from pharmacy.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on patient care, not cost cutting.

    Pros

    Nice new facility and a good location if you live in Kingwood/Humble area. Most of the staff are really nice.

    Cons

    Not the best salary; NO work/life balance and management was not empathetic if family issues came about. The social workers are lazy and the RN Case Managers do all of the work.

    Pros

    Salary, commute time!some (few) nice folks

    Cons

    HORRIBLE clinical care for the most part. Providers who do NOT see the patient and write notes as if they did. NO AUTHENTIC NURSING LEADERSHIP, conflict of interest/fraud behavior. AND MOST OF ALL...THE ORGANIZATION DOES NOT CARE. they display no ethics. They do not care about employees, either as workers or humans. The staffing is dangerous and patients are constantly moved from floor to floor because there are not enough nurses...because the competent,smart ones quickly leave.....

    Advice to Management

    I hear other HCA locations are NOT like this. Corporate needs to totally clean house or shut this location down. Peer review (genuine) is an idea and some oversight of the providers there who DO NOT practice to standard...and brag about it. CLINICAL NURSING LEADERSHIP THAT ACTUALLY WANTS TO DO THE RIGHT THING...somewhere besides on paper. You don't keep quality fols by this pitiful excuse for a "hospital". BTW, the hospital is filthy, soap and paper products always missing and trash overflowing

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

    Pros

    Nothing!!! Orientation stinks-it's sink or swim, management do not care. The only director that actually cared was fired for trying to make a difference.

    Cons

    This is an HCA facility-for profit hospital. That means they cut staffing so much that Registered Nurses have to perform the job function of 5 different people while only being paid to do one. As a Registered Nurse, you have to provide nursing-that's a given. I was not hired to be a CNA/Tech, Telemetry tech, Unit Secretary and Food Service worker. I interviewed for an Observation nurse position. When I started working, I was required to take surgical, medical and telemetry patients. No job is above me but I did not get my Bachelors degree in nursing to wipe butts, give bed baths, remove patient trays from their rooms, or do order entry in the middle of trying to care for my patients. The nurses are stretched so thin that there is no way you can perform safe nursing practice while being expected to answer the stupid phone that you are required to carry while attempting to pull medication, perform an assessment or even educate the patient. There are so many distractions!!! Steer clear of this place if you are worried about losing your nursing license.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting funding for staffing, give the nurses some help!!! They are drowning and management are not doing anything to help!! Full time nurses don't stay because staffing agencies pay more-pay your nurses more for all of the crap they have to do and you can save money by not having to pay for agency nurses!!! the patients are suffering and no one cares!!!
