    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Kingwood Pines part-time

    Pros

    colleagues are for the most part good, pay is adequate, good work/ life balance.

    Cons

    Stay far away from this facility both as an employee and patient. This is ultimately the worst job I have ever had. Physically, the building is filthy, infested with bedbugs. There is quite often, not the adequate supplies to do your job. The financial office pulls the patients in to an office and makes them empty credit cards for their copays. If thy don't have a card or method to pay right then, they call relatives and friends and ask for payment. The morning meetings focus on how many days of insurance the patient has left and docs often ask for more days despite the fact the patient has adequate support system and a safety plan in place. Once their insurance runs out, they discharge them, regardless of them being ready to go. Management is incompetent, poorly trained. The only time you ever see them is when they come to tell you, you have not signed a form, or about something you have done wrong. The patients see a doctor less than 5 minutes a day. They rarely get to see a therapist, mostly just group therapy. The doctors often don't return nurse calls and texts despite emergent situations. The adolescent boys and girls are all on the same unit, sleep on the same unit. The children's unit is most often, has more patients than beds, the kids then sleep on the adult units. The charge nurse spends little to no time with a patient due to overwhelming responsibilities and paper work, admits, and discharges. I witnessed things at this facility that made it impossible to stay here. Stay away if you want to retain your license. It becomes apparent very quickly that the stockholders are far more important than the patients and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Make you patients and staff a priority. Our fortunes should never be dependent on others misfortunes. Patients deserve the best care possible and they don't get that care at KPH.

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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


  4. "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.
