    I have been working at Sheridan Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The residents are amazing people and you make great bonds with residents and employees.

    Cons

    They will not work with you on the schedule, she puts you down for whatever she thinks will work for her.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the hours employees are able to work, instead of scheduling when you want.

    I have been working at Sheridan Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great organization with a great mission. Supporting or providing health care in a small town is a rewarding job.

    Cons

    If you are not employed as a physician or upper management, you better fall in line or find yourself on the losing end of a short battle. Human Resources is far from impartial and sides with the organization in all cases. If you are not in senior leadership or are good personal friends with someone that is, this organization makes no issue letting you know you are replaceable and will push you out the door with no warning. Several management positions are filled by less-than-qualified people who happen to have a personal relationship with the CEO or other Chief. This is the only hospital i have worked for so i am nor sure if this is normal, but the happiness of physicians is placed above all else. Clinical employees have told stories about being asked by leadership to bend patient safety regulations for the sake of catering to physician requests.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the majority of your organization is filled with lower-level employees. Keeping one director happy is not worth upsetting an entire department of hard working employees. And please understand that your upper management are not perfect. If people are complaining about a leader's behavior, look into it and please do not dismiss it based on one side of a story. And above all else, patient safety comes first, with no exceptions. Practice what you preach. Don't talk the talk about a kindness culture and then treat your staff like lesser people.

    I worked at Sheridan Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very tight knit core of great employees and depending on your specialty there was the potential for upward mobility

    Cons

    Like anywhere else the organization has it upper management challenges

    Advice to Management

    Benefits were better than average and the local community is a great place to live. The department had a pervasive good ole boy environment that was pushed down by the manager.

    I worked at Sheridan Memorial Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a wonderfully friendly community, and the hospital was no exception. I liked it, and the people I worked with were helpful and welcoming.
    Very rural, which is good, but does have its downside.

    Cons

    Medical personal are expected to be proficient in all areas of nursing (except OB), and to be able to quickly change from one area to another. Physicians are few, so NP's are used for the emergency room a lot. Proximity to the oil shale fields of ND added to the cost of living and probability of serious emergency cases.

    Advice to Management

    More specific recruiting, that would identify needs and skills and better match them would be helpful.
