    I worked at Touro Infirmary full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A good place to get treatment from some of the best doctors.

    Cons

    Poor management and no support for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees by helping out when you are short staffed. Have every supply those doctors need to effectively complete the job and assist those doctors in their surgery cases. Make sure everything is well organized so your employees can correctly do their job. Last but not least, support your employees if a incident happen because someone else other than that employee caused the incident or situation and be fair and honest with decision punish the right person while caused the incident to happen. Have respect for all employees and appreciate your employees.

    I worked at Touro Infirmary full-time

    Pros

    Touro is a community hospital. It has a sense of community and local color, which I really appreciated. Some of the teams are really amazing. You get the sense that most nurses and therapists on the units really care about the patients.

    Cons

    The benefits are bad. The senior leadership seems to be chipping away at the already bad benefits. You accrue slightly more vacation time than you would at other jobs, but there are no holidays and no sick time--not really. So, if you are sick, you have to use your vacation time. And for holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving and New Years, if you have off, you also have to use your vacation time. There are no such things as paid holidays or sick days. In addition, Touro runs every office and unit with a skeleton crew that it can be very difficult to have vacation approved. I rarely took vacation just because I did not think it was doable.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are aware that their benefits are bad. I know that it is supposed to be "at market." I quit Touro and healthcare all together. My benefits with my new employer are awesome, and I am really happy. I would not recommend that someone work at Touro personally.

    I worked at Touro Infirmary full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great crew of individual officers, most have LEO experience and get mission accomplishment

    Cons

    no leadership, no spines in VPs on up to CEO. Not allowed to address CEO. Leadership concentrates on patient $$$ only...security forces are undermanned, overworked and dangerously ill equipped to handle the violent nature of ED and units. Incidents are covered up and minimized. DANGEROUS PLACE TO WORK

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training and equipment, allow director access to CEO, properly staff force and secure vital areas of hospital. Train staff on Emergency response.
