    I have been working at Washington Hospital Healthcare System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    I've been employed at Washington Hospital for more than 20 years, and have seen Managers threaten staff (with firing, in a staff meeting), if they speak up about unsafe conditions. I've seen doctors threaten staff with firing if they document a complaint about unsafe doctor care. I've seen Managers focus only on there budget, and patients left to have bad care when staff is cut. I've seen Managers rewarded with bonuses and promotions for these tactics.

    Things like sitters for confused patients, security guards to protect staff from abusive/dangerous patients, enough staff and supplies to provide safe care. These only are available when there are state inspectors in the area. Once the threat of inspections is over, it's right back to budget cuts, bad care, and big management bonuses.

    If you care about yourself or your family, don't come to this hospital. It's not safe.

    Advice to Management

    Stop caring just about your bonus, and start caring about patients.

    Pros

    Emergency Dept staff is like a big family. Watch out and help one another. Great Physcian/Staff relations.

    Cons

    Management is very much about themselves.
    Scheduling is done in a manner that seniority means nothing. In the Hospitals eyes, you are nothing but a number.

    Advice to Management

    Loose at least half of your 15 Vice Presidents.
    Very much "top heavy"
    To the Dept Management.... realize that the staff is what makes that Dept run the way it does. They are the ones that spend holidays, nights, weekends,and countless hours there without you down there back. Your Mo day threw Friday,7-3 means nothing. So you go to countless meeting.... the staff are in the pits, saving lives, dealing with all sorts of issues and illnesses.

    Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Regular employees have NO VOICE! Only when it's something that management wants to hear. Upper management is being paid WAY TOO MUCH! for what they really do.

    Advice to Management

    For the Associate Administrators, take this hospital in a new direction before it gets bought-out like the others. Get away from the present views of the CEO. Work as a team and don't wait for a pat on the back from the CEO, because you won't get it. Fight to make decisions without shaking in your boots and waiting forever for her to make the final decision. Her ego is sending this hospital down the tubes and the employees with it!
