    Pros

    Unionized Hospital and pay is very good for Registered NurseStaff. The hospital that I work at is a busy trauma center so its good learning environment the work is varied and interesting. Recently invested in a lift team due to California Law not because they wanted to.

    Cons

    You work in terrible conditions for the pay. The exceptions are set way too high and given the scarcity of resources. Limited supplies, old equipment that doesn't function properly. On a daily basis including taking care of critically ill and unstable patients you have do all menial clerical tasks, no nursing assistants, no Physical Therapy. The hospital is also very dirty. This includes but is not limited to answering telephones, printing progress notes, answering the door, counseling family members, and generally the lack of resources leads to an unsafe working environment for the staff and patients. I have been in nursing 5 years and I received my first injury at this hospital and have been assaulted by patients on numerous occasions with management discouraging its reporting or seeking treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on providing patient centered care first. The focus on lean management and profits is over the top and not good for our patients, their families, community, and employees. The results of this type of Profit centered healthcare are evident. Patient falls, central line infections, and a staggering amount of bed sores. I wouldn't take a love one here or receive treatment here myself it is frightening the care that is given at this health facility why do you think the State of California is here constantly investigating the care. Stop trying to squeeze every penny and get away with being barely legal and get up to standards and just do what is right for our patients.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Fair pay for this area, 401K, some cheap benefit options, easy to advance and gain raises, offers continuing education

    Cons

    Management is filled with terrible bullies who work nurses to the breaking point. Nurses are constantly worked in unsafe conditions with high and illegal patient ratios and management refuses and is unqualified to help. Breaks and lunches are scarce during a 12 hour shift. Management retaliates and bullies any nurse attempting to speak up about these unsafe conditions. It is a culture of fear and intimidation, which is not good for nurses or patients. I would never allow anyone I care about to be a patient here.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of management and hire new managers who actually care about employee morale and patient safety.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent on-boarding process. Great coder training materials during on-boarding process. Reasonable pay for position.

    Cons

    Poor management. Poor training after initial on-boarding. Antiquated coding software. Poor communication from management staff. Several I/T issues almost daily resulting in lack of productivity. This company is primarily interesting in their bottom line and not quality. If you're interested in working like a robot this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade systems and software. Provide a better training program (more than 2 hrs) for new coders to acclimate to your processes. Respond to emails.

    Pros

    Strong team within our department.

    Cons

    Never enough staff. Patient safety jeapordized. Admin living in a dream world. Driven by metrics that are based on inaccurate data. No understanding of what the workforce requires to be effective. Admin motivated by bonuses related to keeping staffing at dangerous levels. Computer conversion crammed through a square circle. Nothing validated. Shoot first aim later mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the real numbers, not what you are told are real. Walk the walk. Network with the minions who do all the grunt work. Take a look at the best practices and support the technology to meet them.
