Company Culture

My co-workers come from a lot of different backgrounds. Everyone works together to achieve our goals

Challenging Work

I see different patients every day with different problems. I am in orthopedics and often have to make quick decisions on how to fix a broken bone or other problems

Suggestions for improvement

  • I can't think of anything. My employers seem to be doing a good job

What I like about the company

My Mom was sick and I needed time off. I used all of my sick days and personal days so my co-workers gave me some of their time so I could be with her

What I dislike about the company

I think we should have on-site daycare. This would make it so much easier when I have to feed my son

Suggestions for improvement

  • Encompass different age groups for employment and employees with a lot of experience should be valued and paid well. I think they would have less turnover

What I like about the company

Very good goals in relation to patient care. Love praying together everyday.

What I dislike about the company

Too many managers and not enough experienced staff. No accountability for employees not working hard

  • I feel like if administration would truly ask the worker bees opinions without being in trouble for speaking they know more things that can improve certain aspects in the company

What I like about the company

They give back to the community though the are nonprofit and religious faith based so that is the reasoning

What I dislike about the company

If one person doesn't like you it is hard to advance. They will overlook you everytime.

The following perks were offered to me

Company Culture

Staffing ratios could be better. I had to call in before all scheduled shifts to see if I could keep it. Many times due to a overly zealous practice of canceling shifts when census dropped. Bad for full time staff to consistently receive short paychecks. Possibly assess staff scheduling

Support from management

When I had only been there a few months, the DON, after listening to gossip accused me and another nurse of having an inappropriate relationship with a married Doctor. Could not have been more wrong. And we were both able to prove it but the damage is done. It can’t be taken back. Mid mgt was extremely supportive but higher mgt were completely out of touch.

Freedom to work independently

Things move very quickly and and staff is spread very thin as it is. So taking a supervisor or DON away from her duties would hamper the flow.

Internal Communication

I feel like it’s better described as s scare tactic. Threats rather than communication lowers positive results.

Gender Equality

I’d say mostly true from administration. Some male doctors are always going to cross the line no matter where they hail.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I think it depends on your position. Rarely saw nurses or aides 45+. But did see a decent amount in clerical positions, and Doctors.

Career Development

I knew I had to make myself indispensable so not to continue getting canceled for shifts. I volunteered to receive training in order to obtain my chemotherapy certification. My cancels dropped a significant amount.

Office / Work Environment

Yes. The facility and equipment was top of the line.

Environmental Friendliness

With dealing with biohazardous materials the recycling must be adjusted. After all it is a place where some things cannot be refused.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not only meets regulations but goes the extra mile.

Workplace Safety

The staffing ratios alone resulted in unsafe patient care.

Challenging Work

Since I was routinely losing hours each check, I volunteered to float to a high stress, difficult speciality—oncology.

Inclusive / Diverse

It is a catholic hospital in the Bible Belt, so any attempt to express your individuality is sometimes viewed as flaunting. Don’t feel comfortable expressing diverse ideas for fear of being perceived as difficult.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe a cafeteria discount for employees would be appreciated. I know the Sisters are a stoic group but it is an antiquated strategy that we must fear you and be terrified to perform our duties above and beyond. Studies show that an anxious, fearful employee will not perform at her expected and desired level of excellence she yearns to provide for you. More flies with honey, they say.

What I like about the company

Met a lot of good nurses, aides, and other disclipines that knew there was strength in numbers and was able to make a positive change for all. Personally, I completed new training by getting my chemotherapy certification to make myself more valuable so that when they’re deciding who to send home again, I believe I’ll be able to keep more of my shifts. Thanks!

What I dislike about the company

I feel they could be much more accepting of those different than us. It’s a religious facility after all, and isn’t that what Jesus taught? Do your homework when listening to gossip about others and know that some things can’t be repaired once broken.
