The census remains very high most of the year and the acuity matches across the system. The care provided by nursing is top notch. Travel nurses routinely want to return because of the core teams they work with, and the quality care provided to patients. I have been blessed, because I love what I do. I am not alone in that here at Tallahassee Memorial.

The office functions well overall with certain areas that seemingly have no order or plan of action. The day shift has a tense cloud hanging over itself due to personal issues and non-work related situations. There is a lack of faith in the effectiveness management when discussed amongst staff. Management is seemingly unaware of critical duties in the office place and do not seem to have interest in learning these tasks. The new colleague process needs much improvement.
Benefits and night/weekend shift deferential payment
Lack of effective management, poor payment for work done

The overall day to day work is fine, and actually the area I worked all people got along and enjoyed working together, however, our direct manager was awful. Lacked any actual prior managerial experience nor was given any education to be a leader. Consistently inconsistent, nothing was ever informed to all staff, only those working that shift, then it had the trickle down effect which led to miscommunication. I feel however, the over all company does care about patients needs and wants to provide excellent care. The day to day staff I worked with were compassionate staff who cared about each other.
flexible unit and schedules, Real actual team work
direct manager incompetent, but upper management worked on fixing it.
like say, to avoid being homeless...then treat it like a revolving door, BUT don't EVER lose site of the opening on the other side; don't pass go, don't collect $200, DON'T get comfortable here; make them show you a FULL benefits outline before you accept a position...there are some nasty little surprises there; what this reviewer observed was they lead by fear and intimidation; they push employees to the point of physical illness (they should be ashamed - being a 'premier' healthcare institution in the region; they are a nasty piece of work - particularly patient financial services/finance.

This facility could care less about the patients, or their nurses. Nurses ALWAYS take over the allotted number of patients, putting the patients and their nursing licenses at risk. Management could care less. Not only are the nurses at TMH some of the lowest paid in the state, they're expected to put their own health, and nursing licenses at risk so managers don't have to come in and work their own units. TMH cannot keep nurses because of how they treat them. Nurses barely last 6 months. Hopefully it will lose millions and learn a lesson in employee retention.
Fast pace on key with processing mail, money. mailing out letters and responding to customer to meet there every need. Ned to have more staffing for other to take a break. And known one such every work alone in the unit it stays to busy.
Nice place to work, great benifits but to much politics.

OK place to work, good benefits but they are a good old boys employer. It's not about what you know- it's about who you know. They also show favoritism to some employees. Daily work load is heavy and they will not hire enough people to do the extra work so that employees are not constantly stressed. It's all about the numbers $$$$$$
Working at TMH I learned so much and met so many different kinds of people. The nurses encouraged you to jump in and help. I really enjoyed going to work at the hospital. Something was always going on and you learned all kinds of things. I just hated the pay amount. It just wasn't enough.
