  1. "Family"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    They have a “Transition to Practice” program for new nurses and it makes it easier to get started! My coworkers are like my family. Everyone I work with acts like they actually want me to be there instead, “Oh they’re new. They don’t know anything.” You’re included and it makes it easier especially if you’re shy.

    Cons

    New grads usually start on nights if you’re a floor nurse. But they have so many options as far as RNs go.

    Advice to Management

    My supervisors are great.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Stillwater Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Good first line supervisors and Co-Workers.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership is Unethical and has a Promote friends first not the best qualified mentality. Often accuse talented people of not being "SMC Material" and running them off.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the Rotten Fruit in Leadership like PPM Leadership and find qualified people. Take a hard look at what is important and not the fluff.

  3. "RN PACU"

    I have been working at Stillwater Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    The best patient population to work with anywhere. Best Resource Pool Nursing Staff of any hospital I have ever worked in during my 18 year career.

    Cons

    Educational dialogue and suggestions for improvements in safety and performance are sometimes met with indifference at the very least, and occasionally with hostility from peers, management and providers.

    Pros

    SMC recruits a lot of college students who want to build their pre-professional healthcare experience who otherwise would have to obtain credentials and additional schooling, on top of the local university's curriculum. This leads to exciting opportunities for employees who are building their resumes to become involved in the fast-paced field of healthcare.
    The HR department is incredibly accommodating and friendly to all students wanting to work or shadow physicians/practitioners for pre-professional development.
    Lower- and Mid-Level management are typically easy going for most departments, and will commonly work around any circumstances in your schedule.

    Cons

    SMC recruits a lot of college students who want to build their pre-professional healthcare experience who otherwise would have to obtain credentials and additional schooling, on top of the local university's curriculum. What this means in the eyes of SMC is that all of these lower-level employees (PSR's/MA's) are easily and quickly replaced when you do not align to SMC's expectations. As an easily replaceable employee, your compensation will reflect this. If and when management is displeased with your actions, they perform disciplinary actions as the judge, jury, and executioner. On several instances there were low-level employees terminated and replaced very rapidly, and gives a Janus-like, ambivalent, appearance to management's disposition.

    Advice to Management

    Management consisting of LPN directing RN/APRN/PA-C/MD&DO practitioners is highly distorted and helps underline the disconnect between management and the actual practitioners whom bring the RVU income to the clinic.
    Practitioners know what they are doing - they went to school for many years to reach where they are. Laissez Faire and give them the latitude to accomplish what they need to, and compensate them for the work and hours spent doing so.

    Pros

    Career ladders for advancement, competitive salaries, great management, team atmosphere, Studer group hospital

    Cons

    People that are promoted to management because of years of experience and not necessarily because they are the best fit for the job

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the employees when they have complaints about a manager and follow through with either coaching them to improve or cutting the cord when they are not coachable.
