    Pros

    The people that you work with are amazing. I'm a night shift employee, so I speak for them. They are an amazing team, and they are willing to help whenever and wherever they can.

    Cons

    Southern Maryland Hospital has a bad reputation. I honestly think we provide great care. The frustration from patients comes with wait times. People are upset because they aren't seen and treated faster. Everything we do takes time and the HCAHPS scores don't always tell the story.

    Advice to Management

    I just think we need some consistency in our leadership. We have had a carousel of people come through the emergency room and not stay long. Often times these events leave the ER in shambles and we have to continue on and pick up the pieces when people leave.
