    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

    Great coworkers, great Pay, that's it

    Cons

    Backstabbing, gossiping. Too many people in management, not enough workers. Everyone wants to be a boss or manage and do none of the dirty work

    Advice to Management

    Find out why nurses are leaving and we are always short

    Nice teamwork amongst the nurses.

    No breaks in 8 hours- happens regularly- no one cares!

    I have been working at Washington Hospital Healthcare System part-time

    Pros

    The team work at this hospital is unlike anything I've ever seen. The doctors are very personable to their nursing staff. The CNAs are amazing--definitely the hardest working CNAs I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Scheduling is tough. 8 hours of work and the CNAs are not allowed to chart anything. Nursing has to fulfill the work of CNAs and RNs including intake and output, charting, vital signs in 8 hours. It's extremely hard to adjust to... but it's doable.
