    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 5 years)

    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!

    I have been working at San Antonio Regional Hospital full-time

    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

    Pros

    Generally a good place to work. Good benefits with average pay. There are many staff members that work here for the right reasons, to help mankind. They make it enjoyable.

    Cons

    A 1900s culture that is extremely resistant to change. Company slogan should be, "Well, we've always done it that way," or "That won't work here." No management training for charges or leads. No longevity incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, don't just say that you do. Come out of your locked down suite and be more accessible.

    Pros

    A handful Great recruiting staff are always willing to go the extra mile for your pt's and fellow staff

    Cons

    Middle management quite frankly are all better off set out to be eusthanized. Many lack The vision and know how to motivate staff to want to make a change for the betterment of patient outcomes and patient satisfaction and all this can be achieved I'll Beit not as easy as it sounds but staff can only be outstanding when they are at work. Simple equation to remember Happy Staff will always result IN increased patient satisfaction scores across the board....and patient wise there is no difficult patient just professional staff that can't make a meaningful connection and establish a personalized approach to catering to a patients idiosyncrasies. Happy peppy staff will alwYs results in increased patient satisfaction and overall satisfactionacross the board given the proper prep time.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new blood into specialized teams you want movers and shakers that of been exposed to different management styles that are more geared towards staff and their happiness and eagerness to me but they are part of the best in the class individuals think outside of the box and they can produce results for the building of a solid culture that is patient centric. Get rid of the battleaxes that were obviously promoted because it gets them off of the front line where the biggest impact and first impressions make or break rthe all important word of mouth advertisement. Lastly the way acuity is determined is not in any way a direct reflection of how much work must be invested into Ny one patient demographic. Get rid of the ethics hotlines as they are a complete and total waste of time in my experience. Especially when the accused are the ones conducting there own investigation where the will find no wrongdoing ever and will manipulate sample sizes to conveniently not include the sample state that shows where the wrongdoing occurred.

    Now the joke that is in place called the ethics line....not such an ethical service and is rather a disservice to those of of us that what to be heard to improve a not so effective program
