    I have been working at Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hiring process was quick and easy. Good teamwork and learning environment. Great training and orientation.

    Cons

    They are about the budget. The will schedule the least nurses and CNAs possible due to costs. It unfortunately affects the nurse's stress levels and the patient's safety doing it that way.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep your nurses, and to keep them happy. I've witnessed some great nurses leave because they were unhappy.

    I worked at Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    When I started with the company in the beginning, there was more emphasis on employee morale. That quickly ended along with yearly pay raises.

    Cons

    CEO was unfriendly to employees. A lot of stress due to patient load led to a lot of unhappy and disgruntled workers.

    Advice to Management

    If you're not going to offer yearly, performance based pay raises, you shouldn't bother employees with having to undergo a formal yearly review.

    Pros

    The people I worked with-thank GOD.

    Cons

    Back breaking work,not enough support staff. and firing of staff that have reached the top of the pay scales. VHS hospitals are the worst hospital in the system.

    Advice to Management

    Get more help to really give good patient care.

    I worked at Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers. The majority are great. Some nurses have issues with belittling others during report time. (They are NOT very skilled themselves so they lash out at others.)

    Cons

    IV pumps are broken. Equipment is hard to find and you need to search for it. There is not enough help which leads to nurses lifting fat patients all alone. Visitors RUN WILD and lash out at nurses. Again, if there were just one more CNA, our "scores" would go up, which seems to be so all-important to get paid by medicare. One manager actually stopped ordering pens, pencils, post it notes and told her staff to buy their own...that's one of her cost-cutting measures. It's juvenile.
    There are also too many visitors...they take over the patient rooms, demanding to sleep there as they are indigent or stuck in Las Vegas. They are rude and abusive and this is tolerated in the name of "customer service." Patients get better with fewer visitors. Nurses won't go into rooms on a casual basis if they are constantly bombarded with "get me coffee, water, a "visitor meal," etc., and you end up treating them as if they are free guests in a hotel.
    The doctors agree with us, but they are contracted. And they don't have to experience the visitors all day long. We didn't have COFFEE to give to the visitors for two months....trying to save a buck.
    But the stock prices are very, very stable.

    Advice to Management

    Pitch in. Don't flex staff. We need 24 hour ward clerks. Did you know we have all agreed to not answer the phones when they ring? We'll just let them ring because our time is needed taking care ofthe visitors all damned day.

    Spring Valley Hospital is committed to providing the highest level of care and service to our patients and their families. It is unfortunate that one of our nurses does not feel the same way ... More
