They make their employees feel like a cog in the wheel there is no real compassion from the executives. They are more concerned with their bottom line than the patients and employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Upgrade computer saoftware. More safety equipment for moving patients

What I like about the company

My immediate management staff is friendly and accommodating. But there does not seem to be any desire for growth as a department. Lots of inconsistencies. Out of date computer software. Many unsafe practices affecting patients and employees. In consistent standards of work

What I dislike about the company

No easily accessible lifting devices for patients and staff

Company Culture

Just as any large healthcare system would, they have their memorized "Mission Statement". It's all fake. They don't care about patients.

Support from management

You will be impressed by management during the interview and they will seem so happy that you're coming on board. Don't fall for it.

Teamwork

Nope. No one wants to work with you to help fix anything. They are all against you because they are miserable and they are only there for a paycheck. Once they see that you are actually there to work and to improve the patient's experience, you'll have a huge target on your back.

Freedom to work independently

Make sure you enjoy someone standing over your shoulder. You will most certainly be micro-managed.

Internal Communication

ZERO - absolutely none.

Office / Work Environment

Again, depends on the department. Patient Access is a true life nightmare. The management team is extremely difficult. They think that they are communicating, but they aren't. When you attempt to create a happier environment, you will be scolded.

Work-Life Balance

This can depend on the department that you are in. It is healthcare. so you should expect any shift on any day. However, they could do a better job scheduling staff in the ER.

Company Image

I wish I could give less than 1 star. I was warned before accepting this job. I also read all of the horrible reviews. However, I assumed that the negativity was coming from disgruntled former employees. Well, it wasn't. They were real. No one in the Tri-County area wants to go to this hospital. It is also common to hear referred to as "Tri-Death", rather than Trident. After being there, I see why. Oh, and the good reviews are the product of a team effort by the management and administration.

Workplace Safety

I have seen some things in this hospital that I would never expect to see in any healthcare facility. Your safety is not a concern.

Challenging Work

Actually, the work was the easy part. Ignoring the HIPAA violations and lack of compassion for patients was the hard part.

Suggestions for improvement

  • That would be a list too long to type

What I like about the company

Not much of anything. I do honestly believe that HCA, the parent company, has a nice program and has good intentions. I just don't think that the right people have shown up at this facility at the right time.

What I dislike about the company

Mostly - the management and administration. I'm not one to usually say that, because I am in Management, myself. This group manages in a different style that I am just not comfortable with.

Suggestions for improvement

  • BETTER NURSE-PATIENT RATIOS!!! Also, more encouragement from management. Do not set up a staff meeting and spend 95% telling us how horrible we are doing at our jobs and only 5% saying the few good things.

What I like about the company

The only positive experiences I have with my company are with my co-workers, and that does NOT include management, only the co-workers who are on the same level as myself. The are an amazing group of people who truly care for their patient and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure they are properly cared for.

What I dislike about the company

Management, management, management. Our current floor manager is completely incompetent when is comes to managing and in the eight months she has been in charge she has lost over half of the staff. Practices are often unsafe for patients and staff, but all management cares about is patient satisfaction scores. Staff satisfaction is completely nonexistent and we are being worked to death.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I have already mentioned what bothered me the most. I also think the main corporation needs to upgrade the computer documentation system from something that is not dos based.

What I like about the company

They do notice if you are good at training people and ask you to train people.

What I dislike about the company

I think they should promote from within.
