    I worked at Mendocino Coast District Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are flexible with per diem hours. Lots of friendly people. Great environment to work in- very close to the beach. :)

    Cons

    Normal "politics" of any health-related workplace but seems to be less than other places I've worked. No cafeteria- but there is a food truck in the parking lot on certain days and not far to local diners/fast-food places.

    I worked at Mendocino Coast District Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and work for. Your direct supervisor and office supervisor will back you up and that's always something you need. I worked as a medical assistant, we were allowed to do a lot of hands on work (within our scope of practice) and the providers are pretty nice to work for too.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be a little crazy, but it can be that way at any Doctor's office. At MCDH it's a lot harder to get along with employees, NCFHC is great.

    I worked at Mendocino Coast District Hospital as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the nurses and supportive staff. Family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Nursing safety, Please have PALS and acute PICU/Pediatric experience, High acute psych, high meth drug usage, and ETOH withdrawal abuse patients with poor mental health support. Revolving door of same patients.The need for stronger night support MD's on hands not via a robot for emergencies, The nurses" must"demand that the patient be transfer out via air ambulance to a higher acuity facility, and pray that there is no fog or you stuck with a situation beyond your means. The area is very reclusive, no malls, poor housing, dangerous winding roads especially at night.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive, You have wonderful nurses working miracles with scarce recourses, Listen to your staff, Nurse and patient safety is priority no.1,poor employee moral.

    I have been working at Mendocino Coast District Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful location, modern facility. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Low salary, poor quality and repressive management, district in bankruptcy. Obviously discriminatory against older workers. Openings in the lab for the last 3 years which I have applied repeatedly for have been unfilled. I have never been interviewed.

    Advice to Management

    Move to the future, make the investment. It is 2014, hire the persons available to you and pay a decent wage.
    Just another hospital refusing to staff with adequate numbers of trained, competent, licensed people, as required by state and federal law.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for personal growth which allows you to effectively meet the communities needs. Benefits are exceptional, geography is beautiful.

    Cons

    Administration challenged to make difficult / timely decisions. Disconnect between senior administrators not uncommon. Self preservation appears to be a high priority. Unable to enforce policies especially when it comes to physicians.Chain of command structure is not consistantly used.

    Advice to Management

    Allow logic and good clinical care , not emotions or public perception in decision making.

  8. "Very positive and rewarding experience. I have moved up in the 10 years that I have been here."

    Pros

    Peolpe in my department, Atmosphere. I am one person who can say I really love my job

    Cons

    I guess the only thing would be attitude from some of my co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen a little more to the employees
