    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Palms of Pasadena Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Other staff members- high level of experience and dedication, comraderie, staff turnover rather low tended to stay along time. Flexible with scheduling, allowing time off.

    Cons

    Depends on the Department you work in, but overall-very much a corporate for profit mentality, top heavy in administration, those folks seemed to have had little experience or even success in running a community hospital. Over the years plenty of turnover in administration, while retaining a pretty loyal base of hospital employees. Very good at paper -trail corporate compliance. Staff dissatisfaction with corporate ways seemed to increase over the years Inwas there. They could better managed the departments I worked in for greater efficiency. Not knowing if your department is on the "chopping block" until perhaps too late. Really don't understand how they remain viable with all the competition in healthcare - oh, wait HCA now owns almost all the hospitals in this area- that would be a monopoly.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to invest in their careers by paying professional dues and bringing in educational seminars. Don't rely only on certain hospital statistics to judge profit and outcomes. Allow for innovation-BIG ONE. Be ahead of changes in healthcare reimbursement instead of always playing catch-up after the fact . Employees should have a say in departmental decision making, especially when it deals with efficiency and EMR documentation .

    I have been working at Palms of Pasadena Hospital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The size of the hospital brings a friendliness and you can get to know people throughout the hospital. Administration is approachable and give voice to great values and mission statements. the vision for the facility is inspiring.

    Cons

    Low pay rate and staff according to a numbers grid verses acuity. Many times this stresses staff. Also can start day with staffing for low number of patients and midway acquire a larger number of patients but they are unable to get more staff to come in. Bonus for being called in is not offered often if at all. Administrative board is very removed from hands on care. Focus is on algorithms and profit. Continually adding more tasks to each department and slim staffing. A lot of burden falls onto nursing and though a motto they profess of patients coming second-the nurse/patient ratio, excessive tasks with little help and minute thought into making things easier for staff to provide the best care for patients does not add up to the motto.
    Shifts are long; pool staff voice unwillingness to float to the facility and say it is because of heavy nurse/patient ration, not enough CNA's and perceive little support. This makes taking time off very difficult as well as adding support staff. A lot of nurses quit because of excessive floating. CNA's are hard to keep because they are overused; can potentially end up working on 2-3 units in a shift due to changes with patient numbers related to discharges and admissions and are usually not buddied up.
    This is a facility where one has to cope with staffing changes driven by the season. This means it gets busy when the snowbirds are here and not so much when they leave. Cancellations are part of the dynamic in the hot seasons.
