    I have been working at PIH Health full-time

    Pros

    I have been with this company for about 10 years now and I love it. I love the atmosphere very diverse. They are flexible with schedules. I love working in the ER, very family oriented, strong teamwork not only among nurses but with the doctors as well.

    Cons

    salary is ok
    benefits-retirement could be better
    need to listen to nurses and what they would like and begin the projects

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Staff really make it their second home. People are kind and compassionate about the care they give to the patients.

    Cons

    Room for growth is very limited. Compared to other hospitals in the area, the pay is lower than others. The work load became heavy and very stressful and resources and staff become scarce. Staff was leaving to pursue better paying hospitals. Merit increase went from 5% to max of 2.5%.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge staff and the hard work they put forth despite the heavy work load and lack of staff.

    I have been working at PIH Health full-time

    Pros

    great people, family like culture, fair assignment/ratio.

    Cons

    In the past 2-3 years they've been cutting back on all kinds of benefit, such as less health insurance coverage and higher premium, cutting back annual raise from 1-3% to 2.5%. Poor retirement matching. Limited resources to promote continuing education/classes. High turn over in all nursing departments - ICU/ED/Med-surg, so tons of new grad opportunities, though lacking experience nurses. This use to be a hospital I highly recommend, but not so much now. Staying because of the awesome coworkers but that's about it.

    I worked at PIH Health full-time

    Pros

    Night shift differental is $6/hr for respiratory therapist

    Cons

    Politics in hospitals are necessary but usually is better when its truly non for profit

    Advice to Management

    Dont forget about taking care of your employees. It trickles down all the way to the patient when u care.

    I worked at PIH Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to come in as new grad RN - only because they're desperate. Everyone knows this place is only meant to get your experience in

    Cons

    This hospital is stuck in the 80's. Paper charting, no pyxis - you pull medications from a cassette and drawer. Doctors don't put in orders, YOU the RN is expected to input orders for them, no transport team so you push your own bed, no CNAs you are primary RN for the entire shift, charge RNs are new grads with less than a year experience. No cafeteria discounts, Doctors don't speak English and would yell at you if you ask them to repeat themselves. YOU will be stretched thin here. On top of all that? You're getting paid LESS THAN $30 An hour. And this is experienced pay! Working at a SNF pays better than this 'acute' care hospital


  10. "poor managers"

    the managers at PIH are not very organized, even the HR department they don't do anything to resolve any of the issues.
