    I have been working at Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Great Experience and entry position for nurse graduates.

    Cons

    Workload might cause early turnover, always in need of healthcare providers.

    Pros

    The reason I give Las Palmas the one star is because of the awesome co workers. Other than that, I see no other benefit for working with Las Palmas.

    Cons

    They are always understaffed, therefore, their current workers are always overworked. Workers are constantly taken advantage of. The schedule is ridiculous and unrealistic. You'll do fine here if you don't have a life. Just a warning, if you take a bonus, then later, for any unforseen reason you have to leave before your contract is over, they will take your entire last paycheck without actually telling you. Then when you confront them about it they will say it was in their policy and your director should have gone over it with you. Then you're out your own on what you will do to support your family. They just simply don't care, they are all about the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Only corporate can do something about it, all management does is try to keep the boat from sinking with the little resources and power they have.

    I worked at Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    HCA is a great company to work for. The parent company has many resources. There are a lot of people who work in or their hospitals within the company that you can get advice from.

    Cons

    Poor leadership from Chief Nursing Officer and Assistant Chief Nursing Officer. They show clear favoritism and are always working in crisis mode instead of looking for a long term solution.

    Pros

    coworkers became friends, everyone at the bottom of the totem pole were the friendliest people i've worked with, work hard and "endure the suck" together. everyone at the bottom helps each other out. are very underpaid to keep this hospital functioning. many nurses and techs overwhelmed, understaffed. i've seen large groups of employees - almost whole depts quit due to misuse by management and lack of pay. no other positive experiences other then working with people that really tried to do good, knowing those efforts would never go noticed. if your new to healthcare, a job here of any kind can be of use if you network a bit and make friends - most worker bees will teach you things or explain processes to you and you'll get to understand the functionality of all depts to further your career elsewhere. liked that they did monthly blood drives also.

    Cons

    pay was the worst i've had in almost two decades. this hospital system las palmas/del sol has ranked on highest grossing for profit hospital lists on more then one occasion yet you couldn't tell walking in there. hospital building is in need of major makeover and functioning equipment, lack of appropriate waiting rooms on the first floor left people standing in hallways, decor looks like a 70's library, cafeteria was the worst food i've had on a campus (it was always joked about among employees) , human resources very disengaged and unhelpful, computers are down alot and use old software, employee meetings are a joke - free prizes are the primary focus, there is no accountability and all efforts by mid management is to get by with bare minimum. hospital is more concerned with looking good on paper by receiving multiple certifications but have no clue how to go about implementing them. have seen management use foul language in a public setting multiple times without caring who's around. just overall standards are blah.

    Advice to Management

    do your homework before implementing any new program/procedures and misusing funds. get off computers/phones playing with personal accounts and pay attention. have respect for worker bees that have dedicated years to the hospital, invest in coordinator type positions to work between management and those that work face to face with patients since communication is terrible. work on keeping mid management engaged and force them to be accountable for dept issues instead of letting them blame those under them while they sit back with lattes and play on phones. invest in the facility overall and cafeteria so employees feel proud to work there. i know CEO is personable and laid back but cut back jokes with connotations at employee forums, its just weird and sounds inappropriate.

    I worked at Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    the people you work with end up being like family
    it is a friendly atmosphere, and I enjoyed my time there

    Cons

    sometimes short staffed, but that is everywhere
    I was promised a PRN position, and supposedly it was approved; but once my MD gave me the okay to go back to work the position was not there

    Advice to Management

    keep people in the loop about changes

    Pros

    Well organized facility
    Competent staff and peers
    Close to home

    Cons

    I had a critical family emergency out of town, unable to give a months notice, banned from HCA facilities

    Advice to Management

    Management must respect that emergencies do happen, and shouldn't cancel out years of excellent job performance when the situation is uncontrollable!

    I worked at Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a contractor for the hospital, so I wasn't part of the doctor/nursing staff. However, everyone worked together well, and there was little to no office drama between coworkers.

    Cons

    Management is not up-to-date with job trends, and tends to focus on meeting corporate goals with no optimization strategy. High turnover rate causes a lot of lag within the job, and long hours are required. Mondays feel like Fridays, and Sundays feel like Wednesdays.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and listen to your employees. Make necessary adjustments to accommodate both compliance and job quotas. Overall, not a bad job.
