    Pros

    Hospital is not kaotic and full of people! & a lot things seem to be organized via departments.

    Cons

    Pay can be better regarding the work load & high turn-over rates.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees; they could be sharing something that is really important and work harder to stop the drama in such departments!


  3. "Registered Nurse"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Always short staff. Leadership walks around talking and worrying about things such as rounding longs when nurses have 8-9 patients load. Leadership (managers, assistant managers) never assist with patient care even when very short staff. Short staff day here can mean a nurse taking 10 pts at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Get adequate staff.

    I have been working at The Woman's Hospital of Texas part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Truthfully, that is what has kept me here so long. Free parking (although not well lit at night).

    Cons

    Benefits could be better. Pay is a big issue when it's located down the street from the medical center. Staffing cuts ( not enough nurse techs, housekeeping, etc) play a large role in quality care (techs help nurses immensely, housekeeping to keep patient rooms clean--overflowing trash bins shouldn't be seen by visitors).

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for the hospital that probably makes the most in the division.

    Pros

    The employees, for the most part, value their patients and try their best to serve them. The doctors and nurses work at supporting each other, and although innovation is s-l-o-w here, the staff genuinely care about their work and do much good for many families.

    Cons

    Although the staff value their patients this facility is hindered by its for profit values. While those who have direct care try hard, they have limited resources and often leave feeling deflated. Nurses aren't paid what they're worth (working a few blocks down the road most likely will earn you $10 more per hour). The pay isn't even the worst part, but just an example of the values of upper management. The staff is consistently asked to do more with fewer resources. For example, there is only one NICU educater and over 200 NICU nurses, not counting new hires & students. They fired the previous educator because she had a master's degree & cost the company too much $ (and she had dedicated over 20 yrs to this place!). You get in trouble if you have to work late because of a busy assignment and yet there's no one in management who will look into the problem of being under resourced. 'It must be the nurses "milking" the clock. Um no, actually the staff are doing all they can to help their patients in spite of you. Don't even get me started on the useless medical benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Take note of the growing cynicism among your employees. The nurses are your bread and butter; if they aren't happy or aren't able to care for their patients to their own expectations, your business will suffer. You have lost many, many great employees over the past year, hopefully someone making budgeting decisions will take action. I am skeptical, however, as it has just gotten worse in my 13 yrs experience there, despite growing larger and making more money.

    I have been working at The Woman's Hospital of Texas (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most Co workers are great and as helpful as they can be, given the best work load

    Cons

    Too many patients per nurse. Low pay compared to other hospitals. Always short staffed! To much floating without float nurse pay

    Advice to Management

    Treat your nurses better. They deserve a higher pay. This hospital is very busy and we work too hard to be compensated the way we are. And please hire a float pool or offer a bonus to float
