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

    Pros

    Most of the direct patient care is done by caring staff, most of the hospital attempts to work well together to overcome obstacles placed by poor management.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management, I doubt many have had proper training on anything other than how to bring the company money. They are NOT concerned with staff safety and will routinely prove that to you. The do not listen to staff concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Improve, provide better training for managers of departments, show your staff you care. The hospital has the potential to be great but the poor management leaves so much to be desired that they are losing employees quickly.


  2. "Understaffed"

    I worked at Kingwood Pines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Location if you live in NE Houston, above average highly skilled staff, beautiful grounds, 12 hour shifts, 3 day weeks, relatively flexible staffing coordinator

    Cons

    Skeleton crew is the standard, polypharmacy, cutthroat incompetent administration, every department is stretched to the limit, morale very low hospital wide, safe harbor is filed routinely, pro-smoking policy attracts medically compromised patients, ER visits almost daily

    Advice to Management

    Decrease staff to patient ratio, improving staffing would drastically improve every problem. Also change to nonsmoking facility


  3. "Horriable place to work"

    I have been working at Kingwood Pines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employment- Paychecks sill clear. Can work almost 24-7, if you need to. This is because the staffing is super short. Management constantly changing fourth DON in six months.

    Cons

    Short Staffed ALL the time. Patients and Staff safety at risk non-stop. Building is dangerous, Old part of hospital, four units infested with BED BUGS. Staff have even caught them to prove to management that this continues to be a problem after they've " treated" patient rooms. The elevator non-operational for over six months, from August thru September second floor units had no A/C.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother, they know the problems, they care. They are coming in under budget and they should be due a bonus and I'm sure a profitable facility is what heir bosses want.
