    I worked at Larkin Community Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were great. Benefits are alright, minus health insurance plan.

    Cons

    Middle management (most department heads) are worthless. They play favorites and hide the errors and wrong doings of those individuals. Many are terrible leaders and as such, their departments are run terribly.

    Health insurance plan is very constricting, since very few physicians accept it.

    Advice to Management

    Review all middle management. I would go as far as to say everyone below the CEO. Some of the employees within those departments would be better managers and directors.

    I find this facility despicable for GROSS NEGLIGENCE OF ELDERLY HUMAN BEINGS. There sole goal is financial,and there is a complete disregard for human life.It sickens me that 8 people had to die forthis hell hole to be reported!!!

    I have been working at Larkin Community Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers are my best resource. Everyone helps each other. As a new nurse this is very important to me. Thank you

    Cons

    Working 7p to 7a is an adjustment. But I know I am learning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring new nurses we learn quickly and are always willing to give back.

    I have been working at Larkin Community Hospital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, great opportunity for growth and promotion. They have their own school of nursing and College of Pharmacy. They are also planning to start their own middle school for the health sciences to promote for public school kids to go into Health careers

    Cons

    Growing fast so be ready to take more responsibility and constantly learn new things. If you just want to coast and get a paycheck for minimal work this is not the place for you

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    Pros

    NOTHING, you literally have NO PROS. You do NOTHING for the patients, NOTHING!

    Cons

    Worst hospital on the PLANET, hands down... Extremely dirty, disrespectful staff, they don't care about their patients. I suggest (if you have the option) to NEVER go to this hospital in your life. The government should put a fine on this hospital for being so terrible and having such terrible service. Larkin Community Hospital is a DISGRACE to this city, and to mankind in general!

    Advice to Management

    GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER and actually CARE for your patients!

    Pros

    - family oriented hospital
    -good pay

    Cons

    - hispanic community, close knit family means you have to "fit in" with their culture, because if not, you will be considered not a good fit for the company.
    - impulsive hiring of employees without really thinking it through; therefore jeopardizing other opportunities for advancement at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    learn how to handle interviews with potential employees with professionalism and be reasonable with your expectations; if you cant do that, then do not waste peoples time! i declined 2 other job offers and major hospitals here in miami for becoming an employee at this hospital. I was reassured that expectations were reasonable in the sense that I was a recent graduate and I would need intricate training in my field of expertise, at least for the probation period. (which is expected at any job.) meanwhile, knowing that a person is a recent graduate from collegel, and certified, please be aware that they will not know everything within the first week of being hired, i was still "let go" from the position after 2 weeks. truly never given a chance, nor constructive criticism on how I can make my job easier and things i needed to inform myself on. They knew I was a recent college graduate, everything was out in the open on my side; Management is horrible and very unprofessional. no wonder this hospital had a huge lawsuit for medicaid fraud in 2016.! STEP YOUR GAME UP LARKINS!
