    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SwedishAmerican Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the clinical staff are very caring of each other and of their patients, despite the difficult work environment. It is impressive how much the staff accomplishes with their limited resources.

    Cons

    Admin and upper management are constantly doing things that inhibit good patient care. Communication is only allowed from top down. Department managers, even if they are well-meaning, are trained to manage in an oppressive manner. Many departments turn over their staff as often as once a year, due to poor treatment and despite having few other employment opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    While risk management should come from the top down, operating decisions should come from the bottom up.

    Pros

    Atmosphere in the lab is comfortable. Allowed to carry out your duties without too much supervision.

    Cons

    Holding off on raises for almost two years across the whole health system. Unacceptable in my mind. Need unions for the lab.

    Advice to Management

    In a field where there is always going to be a shortage of staff due to lack of certified degree programs, value employees and compensate fairly.
