    I worked at San Antonio Regional Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The cafeteria food is good. Pay is great. CEO appears to be a caring guy. Culture and values appear reasonable.

    Cons

    Management creates a hostile work environment by investigating rumors created by co workers because the co workers feel pressure to reach their metrics they would throw anyone under the bus. As soon as management picks an employee to bully they pull them into the office each week to complain and question productivity. If you don't meet your productivity numbers be prepared to be treated like a child and questioned why there were time gaps between registrations. No opportunities for advancement. Even if your the most qualified candidate good luck! Rude ER doctors. Terrible parking. Always an overload of patients. But don't try to tell management that, their process isn't the problem it's you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating staff like their children. Show some respect by listening and trying to understand workflow problems rather than looking for problems with the employees.

    I worked at San Antonio Regional Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good, friendly environment. Good shifts, and opportunities to pick up extra shifts if you are a per diem employee. Cafeteria serves really good food. Health benefits are decent, good opportunity to learn from other staff. Strive to get positions in ICU and CCU, the only departments where staff actually does their job and cares about each other.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. You don't get paid enough for what you do, and that goes for most hospital staff. You will be overloaded with patients and almost running yourself ragged and management won't even care. Staff plays favorites and most times it's nursing staff against everyone else in a support position. Management is only available when something goes wrong, which is sad. There is no room for advancement or career progression, and if you're looking to transfer departments good luck! You may be the most qualified person for the job but the position will go to someone who knows the manager or director personally. It's all about favoritism at SARH. Safety standards aren't that great. A patient can be in a room for 2-3 days before they realize they should be ISO. It's not safe. Charge nurses are LAZY, especially in the Tele units. You'll find more nurses sleeping than actually doing their job. Like I said, get the experience and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't work them into the ground just because you can. Acknowledge good work to boost morale. Pay should be more competitive. Have high standards for patient and employee safety. Offer opportunities to learn and for growth within the hospital instead of limiting your employees. Stop allowing staff to get away with not doing their job, it's unethical and unfair.

    I worked at San Antonio Regional Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff works as a team, especially at night when resources are minimal. ER doctors are knowledgeable and willing to teach (if you're willing to learn). Pay is competitive. Variety of shifts and block scheduling.

    Cons

    Admitting physicians are disrespectful and lazy, but are coddled by management. Be prepared to be spoken to like garbage while you take their verbal or telephone orders and don't even question them about putting in their own (as per policy and law) because management will find you in the wrong. Staffing is a challenge. Bad behaviour from patients is not only tolerated, but rewarded due to concern of getting a bad score.

    Advice to Management

    Back your staff! The customer isn't always right - sometimes they're just jerks. Stop saying things like, "Don't question the doctor about CPOE, they're our bread and butter." Nurses are your backbone, not the hand-maidens of the past.

    Pros

    Good 401k, good benefits, clean hospital, fair work equipment, Free CPR renewal classes, free flu shots, good body mechanic classes, good learning experience.

    Cons

    Way too much work that has nothing to do with patient care, Way too much responsibilities, everybody carries a "Tracker" some type of GPS device, the hourly $ pay is bad, & your yearly "Reviews" are always "meets" Never do you "Exceed" because that means a higher raise. If you're "Older" forget it. My Opinion here Only. Try for yourself!

    Pros

    This is a not for profit hospital which has great people and a solid management team. The education benefits are $15,000 over a lifetime, dispersed UpTo $3000 per year. The health insurance coverage costs very good, especially if you use SARH.

    Cons

    Pay is average for the area, but hospital annually reviews for market value and adjusts salaries accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    They need to look at education and certifications and compensate accordingly to retain nurses. Cerification bonuses should be given out bases on test date, not just once a year. There needs to be more career pathing and growth opportunities for nurses
