    I worked at William W. Backus Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing to be noted as far as pros. - maybe some fun staff

    Cons

    Patient Treatment; Management; Salary; Lack of Staff

    Advice to Management

    More staff on. Report chemical restraints and count them as restraints per American Nursing Association definition, as they are restraints if somebody says they don't want a med, whether held down or not

    I worked at William W. Backus Hospital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Backus was a great place to get my professional career started. Great people and competitive pay/benefits. I would have stayed if I didn't find an opportunity closer to family.

    Cons

    Not enough intgretion within the departments of the hospital. Clearer polices and procedures now that we have been added to Hartford Health Care.

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be helpful to have the different departments interact more. That way different people who don't normally work together can appreciate what others bring to the table.
