    I worked at Lourdes (Paducah, Kentucky) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with. Patient interaction.

    Cons

    Management constantly changing. Employee happiness is not a concern. Not flexible with schedule.

    Advice to Management

    This was a great place to work before it became part of ascension health. There were employee appreciation days that created a sense of pride in the company, these have since been eliminated. The turnover rate has increased. The decision to focus more on the business and less on the people (patients and employees) has, in my opinion, hurt the integrity of the company

    I worked at Lourdes (Paducah, Kentucky) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good insurance, good retirement plan, employee discounts

    Cons

    The mental health unit has drama. During my time there it was perpetrated by one worker who is no longer there. The job itself is very repetitive and does not require much thought. It is rather boring and unstressful. If you like to do the same thing every day (fill out the same forms, do the same therapy groups, attend the same meetings) then this job is for you. If you like challenge, thinking on your feet, and new environments every day, then this job is not for you. Another problem is the RA (requested absence). If there aren't enough patients, you have to go home, and unless you have paid time off to cash in, you will lose your pay. It is very frustrating. RA's fluctuate. It is not a daily occurrence. Another problem is the chronic negativity in the mental health unit. Everyone seems to have something negative to say, while in fact they should be positive thus reflecting the positivity to the patients they are trying to help.

    Advice to Management

    There are problem employees who create a hostile work environment. Please apply proper discipline.

    I worked at Lourdes (Paducah, Kentucky) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lourdes helps you grow in your career and promotes bettering yourself. I would love to go back.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of at Lourdes is staffing. I don't think the floors are staffed enough to benef the patients.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is one staff the floors as they should be not by budget. This way you will have happy customers which will bring more back. Also happy employees that will stay and keep the turn-over down. Also hire me, I love Lourdes I called it my home when I worked their and still do. I will work hard for the company and will grow as it will grow.
