    I worked at Suburban Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Some units have receptive managers

    Cons

    Management needs to improve nurses to patient ratios especially during the night shift and improve staffing for better patient safety.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of matrix staffing system and pay closer attention to patient acuity

    I worked at Suburban Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Seasoned employees that I worked with that I learned so much from. Some units, employees, managers and employee morale good.

    Cons

    Poor Communication/Low Salary/Poor employee morale/Very few team players/Poor Management support/Dysfunctional Training i.e. 2 employees train different on same procedure!!

    Advice to Management

    Setting the tone of the department or unit starts at the top. If the manager walks in and says nothing to the employees, it sets a bad tone. Come in say good morning to EVERYONE you pass, put your things in your office and get out there and talk to your supervisors. How was the shift? Walk around and say good morning to EVERYONE on that shift and the next shift. The manager can't show anything but upbeat! "Loose Lips Sink Ships" Management shouldn't be offering information that clearly is not for all or some employee's ears!! In employee meetings it's nice to recognize employees not just for patient accolades, but outstanding work by an employee who for example may have taken the initiative to do something that made a big difference. It's not a good idea to have employees you favor or let other employee see that you favor certain employees. Managers are support for employees to run interference when an employee needs help. It would be nice if when an employee asks for help they get it instead of "Well what do you want me to do about it" It would also be nice if when an employee came to management the manager wouldn't say "go back and tell....." It's not the place of the employee to be telling anyone what to do. That should come from management. Human Resources- Exit Interviews may be a good idea and also a short basic workshop on management might be a good idea. When you heir an RN immediately they are put into a supervisor role. They supervise the PCT. Some can't even do confrontation! It's hard because its uncomfortable. They ask a PCT to do something and the PCT says no and the RN shrugs and does it themselves. THATS WRONG!!

    I worked at Suburban Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I learned a lot about my self and about being an manager.

    Cons

    Working there was very stressful because of the hospital employees. They are a mean group of people and don't believe in team work. A lot of them felt they were to good to even pick up a piece of paper off the floor.

    Advice to Management

    They need to work on all departments to work together to keep the hospital running and clean. They need to work on their attitudes towards each other not only the patients.

    I have been working at Suburban Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hospital trying to improve patient experiences.
    Building a new hospital and parking garage.
    Has lots of activities for employees.

    Cons

    Old building. Parking is a nightmare, you are shuttled in buses between parking lots to work. Since Johns Hopkins took over, the hospital lost its community focused care. Many jobs have been eliminated or moved to Baltimore. They are a "non-profit" hospital that wants to make money. Most of the staff walk the halls with unhappy faces and not friendly, not a warm caring place to work any more.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within Suburban instead of hiring Johns Hopkins staff for management jobs. Return to focusing on what is best for the health of the community instead of what Johns Hopkins wants in Baltimore. Put on happy faces when walking hallways and always acknowledge employees, patients and guests to make Suburban a caring place to be again.

    Pros

    The employees who have been there for a long time are a respectable amount of people. They are very nice and helpful.

    Cons

    Too many changes in favor of the management and not necessarily of the employees of Suburban. Seems like the focus points are not for the "workers".

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more involved on the floor.
