Suggestions for improvement

  • Our diverse population is only expanding, and I do not feel that we always have the proper capabilities to manage these patients and families, including refugee families and children escorted by a case/social worker.

What I like about the company

I have met many wonderful coworkers and families in my 9 year career thus far at LVHN. Both of whom I’ve had the please to keep in touch with over the years, be invited to birthday parties, and other activities. It has been a blessing in my life. I appreciate the stable healthcare for myself and my family that I have had over the years, and am grateful for the child care reimbursement program they offer.

What I dislike about the company

Staffing and nurse pay are my two biggest concerns. I do not feel the nursing staff is paid appropriately for the work and responsibilities we handle day in and day out, and it seems the overall job requirements are becoming greater and greater with minimal to no additional pay increases to compensate us for the extra work requirements. I think we should be paid comparable to a big city hospital since we offer the same care and continue to expand our services and knowledge. Staffing could be much improved as well, as it seems most places are not properly staffed for the workload.

Company Culture

There is a lack of leadership and honesty with Support Services.

Support from management

There is none and the lack of honesty is very disappointing.
This company is not what it once was.

Teamwork

Teamwork has to begin at the top.
The current atmosphere is a complete lack of integrity and ethics.

Freedom to work independently

They don't want to hear the truth.
They only want you to blindly obey instructions and do not ask questions.

Internal Communication

Employees are not told the truth by management.

Gender Equality

They discriminate equally.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very Poor.

Career Development

There is none in Support Services.

Overall compensation for your work

Poor.

Office / Work Environment

Very Poor.

Environmental Friendliness

Nonexistent.

Work-Life Balance

They could not care less.

Company Image

Poor, the lack of integrity and ethics are clear.
They have made profits more important then serving the community or the welfare of long time employees.

Job Security

There is none.
They recently hired a contractor to take over the Security Dept. All of the supervisor positions were abolished. This contractor has no experience with health care and has no idea how the hospital operates. They have hired several people for less money and they have already quit.

Handicapped Accessibility

They are compliant.

Workplace Safety

They do try.

Challenging Work

Dealing with combative patient's, mentally ill patient's, intoxicated patients in the ED are a weekly challenge.

Inclusive / Diverse

They will hire just about anyone if you are breathing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get back to the basics, Have their Directors and Managers turn off their computers one day a week and spend some time with their reports. The company is obsessed with e-mails, which tie management to their desks daily. Some Directors have not even met employees who have been with the company for a year or longer. Employees don't even know what they look like.

What I like about the company

It is the only hospital in our city.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of ethics, the lack of integrity, and the dishonesty that some Directors display with their reports. It is sad that you cannot trust your administration when you have worked for the company for the past twenty years. No corrective actions for the past 20 years and the last five annual evaluations that were outstanding mean nothing.

Support from management

Non - existent

Teamwork

They DO NOT have a grasp on the meani g of this word

Freedom to work independently

The only way you can because there is no teamwork (a NEGATIVE)

Internal Communication

You hear what they want you to hear

Attitude towards older colleagues

The clock is ticking....seasoned employees are viewed as liabilities; not for their dedication and years of knowledge and experience

Career Development

If you don't aspire to go beyond where you are, the view of you is a negative one

Overall compensation for your work

Needs to be significantly better for what they demand of you

Office / Work Environment

Stressed to beyond what a human being should have to endure in this particular field; very sad

Environmental Friendliness

Organization does well however, employees can be inattentive in following through

Work-Life Balance

No life because they suck every bit of it out of you with their unreasonable work demands

Company Image

Witnessing what I have, they do and say things that leave you shaking your head in disbelief

Job Security

Anyone can be replaced

Workplace Safety

They excel in this area

Challenging Work

The only challenge is how to get everything done that is demanded of you

Suggestions for improvement

  • I know how this sounds but to be completely honest, I don't care if they ever improve. Besides, their idea of improving is only when it benefits them like to get an award or be mentioned in a magazine.

What I like about the company

Working with the patients and the dear friends I made. If you are prepared to give your life for this place, they have great benefits. And believe me, you will need them!

What I dislike about the company

Belive this has been previously addressed
