Pros
Cons
  • upper management does not care about employees or patients (in 8 reviews)

  • Instead of focusing on the above items, management is rolling out a 1980s era dress code that is horrifying to anyone born after 1985 (in 6 reviews)

    I have been working at Summa Health System as a contractor

    Pros

    Clean, modern facility with competitive salary for PRN employees

    Cons

    Frequently assigned followup on cases (therapy) and full timers get most evaluations. Don't get to do instrumental assessments or work with critical care patients very much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep PRNs trained in all areas of practice. You never know when you'll need them to pitch in!

    Pros

    I enjoy working on my floor because it concentrates on team nursing. Everyone is extremely helpful all of the time.

    Cons

    We have been dealing with a lot of low staffing. If that was taken care of, I think it would be a wonderful place to work.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management needs to concentrate on the low staffing. This will improve patient satisfaction which will end up improving the business in general.

    I worked at Summa Health System part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a great environment to learn, because it is a teaching hospital. You need to like working in teams, as the interdisciplinary team in the medical setting is important.

    Cons

    Medical work can be stressful and fast paced. You need to be flexible and able to work in different conditions.

    Pros

    Large system, benefits, decent medical coverage, dental & vision available. Many lateral moves available at multiple campuses . Good location to major interstates. Local YMCA discounts

    Inspired Leaders needed in nursing
