Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Loxahatchee, FL – December 22, 2015
Palms West Hospital is a great place to work. They have become very strict over the last couple of years. Every tardy or absence is counted against you. The work load has become a lot per employee as well.
I watched working conditions and morale decline over the last five years. The majority of the workers are exceptional in their dedication to patient care and service, but their contributions often go unrecognized and unrewarded. Salaries are low, benefits are par, and insurance plans are expensive, even with high deductibles. Annual bonuses have deteriorated in amounts and quality. Some members of management and administration appear to be under great strain and accountability, which is often reflected in their disposition and treatment of the staff. Even with the added burdens, demands and unrealistic expectations, the staff manages to provide wonderful care and service. The medical staff is knowledgeable, highly skilled, compassionate, and approachable. This hospital was once a very nice place to work, it has the fundamental components available to be that place again.
understaffed, low pay, long hours, poor treatment of staff.
good place to meet new people and interact with others

i've learned what medications patients cant be taken off of, my-workers are probably some of the most laziest co-workers you can find in west palm beach, hardest part of the job is picking up the slack of others, most enjoyable part of the job is seeing all the beautiful nurses in the hospital
seeing different people everyday, helping out others
