Every Facility has Strengths and Weaknesses; We still are the best!
Case Manager / Crisis Therapist (Current Employee) – Glendale, AZ – July 3, 2014
A typical day at work is busy, fascinating, never a dull moment. Typically I walk in and get a smile from the staff which is why I chose to work here. People seemed happy and that was the environment I was searching for. What I have learned is that I enjoy and respect the psychiatrists and nurses and when I go home at night I can sleep well knowing that the people we serve have been provided with the best! We care!
Management from my experience is not easy; I have been there. It means being forthcoming with both the positives and the negatives and not waiting to address them until evaluation time. It is having a clear schedule, making sure new employees are trained and comfortable. Not asking anyone to do what you as a supervisor wouldn't do youself. Awhile ago, I was lucky to have a supervisor who was a psychologist and had this amazing talent to point out my weaknesses, and wording it so well done that I was actually motivated to improve with a positive outlook.
Having supportive co-workers provides more of a sense of belonging and it boosts productivity. When there is difficulty with same level co-workers, it needs to be resolved. I think to some extent this is found in every facility to different degrees. If the discord among the team is ignored, then the word "team" is nothing more than an oxymoron.
In my profession the people I serve are going through one of the lowest points in their life, some to the point of not wanting to live anymore. Some are seen with physical wounds. It is very hard at times to see the harm people do to themselves. Some say it shouldmore... be expected in my profession, but that is not who I am or who I want to be. The hardest part of the job is seeing how little value some put on their life, as well as those who want to hurt others, and/or the terror some have related to a form of psychosis.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing that people do gain hope, they can identify their own strengths and improvements, and really utilize resources provided. People can and do get better and some choose to learn from mistakes and make an important impact not only for themselves, but with leading others with wise choices. It takes a team to accomplish this and when it works, that is the most enjoyable part of the job.
I can say with confidence, I have heard many people we serve say "this is the best place I have been." Some say they researched the best rated place, and chose to be in our care because "It is the best."less

Cardiovascular Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 22, 2017
This place was hard. The fellow echo techs were not nice and I really learned nothing here. It was a waste of time in my eyes. I just studied for my boards. So I guess I could say that Banner help me with that at least. I hate writing a bad review but this place was not a healthy work space or easy to be accepted.

Registered Nurse (RN) Certified (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 13, 2017
The culture of our workplace has changed dramatically. The normal patient has now become the abnormal and the abnormal has become the normal. The 12 hour shifts are grueling. Some of the patient assignments are very difficult. We are receiving sicker mother's and babies but the patient ratio has not really changed. We take care of 4 couplet's meaning a mother and a baby. That really makes 8 patient's.per nurse. I have learned great time management skills. My management team is wonderful with giving us support and telling us we are doing well however some will get in and help out other's stand and watch as we do our job. The most difficult part of my job is dealing with the new culture, language barriers, mother's having withdraws, sicker multi diagnosis mother's. I really do enjoy the babies. I find it amazing that they can tell you everything you need to know without ever saying a word. I love using my my 6 senses to complete my job. I am just looking for a job that has better working hours, no holidays no weekends.
Love the babies, I get to self schedule, I love the girls that I work with. We have exceptional nurses. .
Thank you for sharing this perspective on the amazing job that you do! We are privileged to have you as part of the Banner Health team! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss work life balance or transfer options within Banner Health.
