    Opportunity to advance, educational reimbursement, friendly enviroment, great management.

    Pros

    The hospital is very community oriented and the staff are friendly toward each other across departments At the same time, the hospital has access to a lot of benefits because it is part of the Medstar Health System.

    Cons

    Staffing is not always optimal. The float pool for nursing is too small and perhaps to inflexible.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the float pool in order to provide coverage if a staff member becomes sick and needs to call out.

    Staffing is not always up to par and the variance in the nursing experience level contributed to unbalanced staffing sometimes.
