    Pros

    Overall the nurses and staff are great. Management does try to recognize employees for achievements.

    Cons

    Like so many places, the patient load seems to continue to increase to barely manageable levels.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that quality care and reasonable caregiver to patient ratios go hand in hand.

    Pros

    Part of the LifePoint Health System. Constantly trying to improve presence and reputation as a local regional hospital system that can provide quality care people desire without having to travel into Nashville, TN.

    Cons

    Lack of team work between different departments of the hospital system. Reduction of staff over the years has lead to high stress and poor moral due to overwork.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage interaction between departments within the hospital system to help build support and loyalty.

    Pros

    everyone is very nice, benefits are okay, pay is not great. departments are usually very welcoming .

    Cons

    no support by management and they seem to care less whether employees stay, some departments worse than others but staffing needs to become safer to make this place a better and safer hospital

    Advice to Management

    pay your clinical employees more in order to be competitive with other hospitals. maybe you would be able to keep actual employees on staff

    I worked at Sumner Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A positive environment that's really committed to helping the community. Nice facility. Most staff are really caring. I like that we have community outreach but they are the WRONG programs to help them. The Volunteers do more good than most departments and are overlooked by CEO.

    Cons

    Challenges of budget constraints and corporate oversight. ER makes too many mistakes that aren't often known to the patients. To many priorities given to directors. Before the sale, these same people were more effective than now.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They are the ones working with the community and understand the needs. Some directors are incompetent and rely ONLY on their staff to make them look good.

    I have been working at Sumner Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All the hours you could possibly want in your lifetime.

    Cons

    Constantly short staffed. We have not been fully staffed in my department since I started here 3 years ago. This in turn has everyone else picking up the slack and working ridiculous overtime hours. This is an issue is many of the departments in the building.
    The pay is much lower than the surrounding hospitals.
    Admin constantly integrates new ideas and adds more responsibilities and tasks to what you already do, and you are not compensated for the copious amount of extra work being put forth.

    Advice to Management

    Don't continue to "fix" things that are not broken and also listen to the ideas the staff members are throwing forth. We are often asked what can be done to make our jobs easier and more efficient, but it is always brought to your attention and then immediately forgotten.

    I worked at Sumner Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tight knit group of coworkers

    And that's about it but I have to have a 20 word minimum for this section.

    Cons

    The pay is ridiculous.
    They pay their staff the very minimum so that the greedy Lifepoint CEO can make another million.

    The staffing is ridiculous.
    They claim to care so much about patient care and patient safety, yet they staff like they do. It's unsafe and should not be acceptable.

    Disorganized.
    I'm just going to leave this here. It is one of the most disorganized hospitals I have ever worked at.

    Advice to Management

    I know that upper management does not care what the floor staff has to say but you need to change some things before you have no staff left. Staff knows that you do not value them. This hospital has some of the worst upper management I've ever seen (directors not included).
