    Work a 12 hour shift in the afternoon and care for 6-7 patients with 1 PCT and you'll understand why there is a huge turnover

    I worked at Weiss Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For a small hospital they have a very knowledgable and proffesional staff that can give a lot of services that a larger hospital can.

    Cons

    The place was bought three times in my four years there. The usual thing that companies do when coming under new management is to clean house. This got rid of the soul of the place that kept it going that far. This brought in people who did care about anything or anybody except the bottom line. i had the unfortunate luck to work for one. This and other things like closing cafeteria for the workers, and getting rid of the good unit managers(Nursing and Housekeeping) set in motion a terrible working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the return customers what they liked about coming there. Look at the Physicians who have a loyal following and why they have them.

    I have been working at Weiss Memorial Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work. Staff is kind, caring, and attentive to patient needs. A great place to learn and gain experience in the medical field.

    Cons

    Weiss is somewhat disorganized. Some of the staff are not the highest quality. But it is also a learning hospital. It is not very clean.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to develop more opportunities for growth within Weiss. Also better benefits for employee. In addition, having more staff on the floor would benefit patient care

    I worked at Weiss Memorial Hospital (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good, and really that's the only pro I can give, because other than the pay the benefits are horrible and management is terrible.

    Cons

    They pigeon hole you, you don't ever go home at the end of your shift, no lunch breaks-ever! Don't go here!

    Advice to Management

    Get some real management!
