    Pros

    Good bedside staff, decent resources for patient care, state of the art facility which is easily the most beautiful in the region. Increasing acuity of patients makes for a rewarding work environment. Working toward Magnet status. EPIC charting system.

    Cons

    Upper management has a total disconnect with what happens at the bedside. The efforts of the organization are to maximize revenue when as a non profit organization the goal should be to maximize the health for those in the community. Compensation is the worst in the region for registered nurses. Problems with management defining what Magnet status means for the organization, there is more of an emphasis on budgeting and improvement by negative influence than there is on increasing the quality of the work environment. Current morale of nurses throughout the hospital is at an all time low.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they provide feedback. Get away from the theory of how an organization is supposed to be run that you see in text books and get away from number crunching. Focus less on reeducation for staff and more on educating yourselves on how interact with staff. Effective healthcare is a top down problem and has to do with the wiliness to participate and a positive mental attitude.

    Pros

    Coworkers are team players. The goal of the company is magnet status which means they need employees to be satisfied with the company.

    Cons

    They cut funds in the areas of direct patient care. Results in poor patient safety and high amounts of burnout on nurses. Instead of funds going to more PCTs or more nurses on staff , the company chooses to build new buildings or but new hospitals. This spreads our resources out even more to cover the new areas...again leaving the current staff amd patients in vunerable positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expanding. Concentrate funda on improving the direct care of the patients at current facilities. Listen to the staffs needs and stop removing their help. A nurse is only one person. Dont make them be a clerk and a pct while thry care for 8 patients , 2 with diarrhea that cant walk, 1 that needs constant observation and 3 that are calling for help every 30 minutes. Its DANGEROUS.

    Pros

    On boarding was great, they seem like MMH really cares about their employees. co-workers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Staffing seems to be an issue because levels are kept at a minimum. Been here less than 5 years and already burned out, they waste money, Love to invest more in building projects than employees, Management does not listen, Stressful and high pressure - lack of adequate training , never question management, (they want a "yes" man/women). not much time for breaks at times when it is busy, poor planning of project ( they leave no time for testing ), not very organized at all compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expanding so much. Concentrate on improving the direct care of the patients at current facilities. Listen to the staffs Invest in your employee or act like you care about them

    I worked at MidMichigan Health part-time

    Pros

    Helping people with their healthcare

    Cons

    Stressful and high pressure - lack of adequate training/God forbid you ask a question or make a mistake! Throw you to the wolves and there is no helpful attitude from the lab director or supervisors - expectations are NOT said clearly - just supposed to read their minds I guess... Good luck ever reaching full-time employment here - as in 80 hours. Lucky to see a 70-hour/pay posting.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the lack of leadership in the lab - no one thinks the constant churn and turn-over is a problem?

    Pros

    Get to work directly with patients

    Horrible employer that is only concerned with the bottom line. Constantly looses great employees because they are not willing to stay competitive with compensation.
