SURGICAL SUPPORT TECHNICIAN (Former Employee), Florence, SC – July 5, 2013
Pros: free meal tickets.
Cons: not enough pay.
A typical day at work was to begin work at 6:00am. I would transport patients to OR for surgery. I would position patients for surgery. After surgery was over, I would turnover(Clean) the room for the next case. Management was OK! My co-workers were good to work with. The hardest part of my job was being called by two or three at the same time to do – more... something, but that's when you learn to multi-task. The most enjoyable part of my job was to help doctors by giving them what they needed in order to successfully complete a person's surgery. – less

Material Handler (Former Employee), Florence, SC – October 22, 2012
often boring, but still work pace was steady, learned warehouse inventory management, so so with management, good co workers, a lot of unfinished tasks that were left undone, the most enjoyable part of the job was going to work...
The compayt itself is good to work for and the pay is good. However if you get hired on a floor that has a lot of problems with staffing you will be stuck and not able to transfer. A lot of the med/surg floors are short staffed.
Nursing (Current Employee), South Carolina – September 21, 2012
Pros: you get a paycheck, good co-workers
Cons: understaffed, not enough supplies, nurse to patient ratio is high, long hours
The people who work at this hospital are good, loyal, hardworking and do their best, but when you don't have the supplies you need or the staffing needed for the acuity of patients it's a problem! It's difficult to give good nursing care to patients when it's one nurse to 7 or 9 patients! It's not a safe environment at that point and it's poor care – more... to patients regardless of the wonderful and caring staff that is there for the patient. It's a game of knowing who you know when it comes to placement in a job or advancement. Favoritism is also a factor in the scheduling or getting pulled to other units within the hospital. Expect to work on any unit at any given time depending on the census or need. Nurses may work as CNAs or sitters, ER nurses may be working on the Tele/Med-Surg/Ped/Catch-all unit or ICU, the ICU nurse may work Postpartum! It used to be a wonderful place to work but over the years the morale of the hospital has dropped dramatically! Management looks at the numbers and is more concerned with patient satisfaction than the happiness of their employees. Happy staff means happy patients and better scores! There are a lot of good nurses, environmental services staff, respiratory staff, lab staff, cna's, uc's, etc at this hospital, but the work environment is miserable. The community knows more of the wellbeing and going-on's of the hospital than the employees do. Employee suggestions/concerns are asked about but not taken seriously or listened to or considered seriously. Some units have a problem with lack of communication, the cna's won't always tell the nurses any abnormal vital signs right away but may wait a few hours. Some of the doctors don't communicate on the care of patients and will write orders that contradict the other doctors' orders. I learned that a jelly bean is a jelly bean, meaning an employee is an employee regardless of your field of work and are expected to fill the missing position anywhere in the hospital. Some supervisors will help you when you need it, others suddenly become MIA (missing in action) and aren't seen until way later. The way things are done/handled may change from day to day depending on how it fits the needs of administration at that time. There are a lot of changes are needed to make this a staff friendly environment again. More nurses are needed to lower the ratio of nurse:patient. When the staff is stressed due to time restraints, treatments needed, medication times, doctors rounding, and documenting, the quality of care is comprised! Hire more GOOD HARDWOKING nursing staff to cover the census and lower the nurse to patient ratio!! – less
Nursing (Former Employee), LORIS SC – June 27, 2012
I worked there for quite some time. The work environment is terrible the whole facility is very unorganized. Management from the administrator to unit managers uses favoritism as a management skill. Most of the staff are neighbors so they look out for each other. If anyone has a difference in opinion they are quickly labeled as a problem and will be – more... written up for every little thing they can find. They constantly ride and belittle the employees who actually do their job, and let others slide. Management feel as if ECC is a separate entity from McLeod so they get to pick and choose what policies to follow and enforce. ECC also has a racist undertone to the work environment . .at times it is direct and blunt and other times it is not but you can tell it is there. Ie. in the staffing in nursing and management where there is only 3 nurses other than Caucasian ethnicity none of which are in management. I am from the north and I have never encountered anything like this until ECC. My word of advice if you are going to work for McLeod DO NOT WORK AT ECC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – less
