Suggestions for improvement

  • Seems pretty good overall to me. I can't think of any protocols in particular.

What I like about the company

Team atmosphere with unit doctors, nurses, techs and staff that I've rarely seen elsewhere. Encourages everyone to work to their peak ability and ask questions if things don't seem right.

What I dislike about the company

not much actually! It would be nice to have some added perks like better childcare reimbursement, paid parental leave. But overall I'm very happy here.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication between each department. Just seeing notes another provider has left in a chart is frequently not enough information. I would explore ways to make direct and timely contact with other providers in other departments easier.

What I like about the company

I learned a lot from working with experts in their fields. It made me feel like I was making the world or at least my corner of it a better place. I made connections that will last a lifetime—personal and professional connections.

What I dislike about the company

The red tape can be discouraging but that’s not unique to VM. It’s a problem with the the field of medicine generally. There are some issues with redundancy that take up valuable time. Time that could be used to working more with patients.

What I like about the company

They’ve invested in my professional growth and have a strategic plan that is actually visible and applied.

What I dislike about the company

The executives don’t turn over at all. They should have pto instead of the current vacation/sick policy. There is no onsite daycare or progressive maternity leave policies.
