It is great to work with caring local employees in a community hospital.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Canton, OH – June 25, 2018
May be called off in 4 hour increments without compensation. Example: Regular shift is 7AM to 7 PM. At 6 AM You could get a call saying "We don't need you at 7 AM. Call back in at 10:30." You call back at 10:30 and if the don't need you, you are still waiting to see about 3-7PM. If you do need to go in it's at straight time, even if you're driving there for 4 hours. You either accept no pay for your unplanned time off or use PTO to get paid.
Another point of contention for people with less than 10 years, you may not be able to schedule any decent time off. Many workers have been there a long time and schedule first. If you have kids and want time off with them in the summer, well.... You can find others to cover for you, but then you are not allowed to use PTO.
After a year or two, a lot of people end up cashing out PTO. You can roll some over.
Please, stop calling people off in 4 hour increments. People are unable to plan time with family when they use PTO unexpectedly. Allow for scheduling of PTO. Staff appropriately so employees can take vacation time.
If employees are unable to plan vacation with their families they will burn out and be unhappy with their jobs. Then they will look for other jobs and administration will need to hire and train new staff. That is very expensive. Keeping staff happy and healthy will help retain them and save money in the long run.
Great coworkers! Most departments work well together. Because it is a community nonprofit hospital, the administration is concerned about the employees. The pay is pretty good.
Scheduling vacation time is very limited, Mostly use PTO unexpectidly in increments due to low census.
