If you were in charge, what would you do to make Children's National Hospital a better place to work?
Listen to your front line workers. The providers know how best to practice. Show trust in your staff. Tell them what your expectations are and the staff will deliver. When you manage as a dictator, outcomes will be poor.
When you micro manage, employees are unhappy. This trickles all the way down to the patient experience. When patients are unhappy, it also goes all the way up to the highest leadership.
Horizontal management is optimal. Vertical hierarchy is antiquated . Progressive leadership is important.
Make changes to ensure your providers are taken care of.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Children's National Hospital? What are the steps along the way?
Took about 8 weeks to get hired and start work.
What is the most stressful part about working at Children's National Hospital?
Being micro-managed by the executives who make very poor decisions on how patient care “needs” to be delivered. High burnout rate. Low morale. No union means they can treat employees as bad as they want without repercussions. And annual raises are not guaranteed.
You feel like slave. Most of the providers are so fed up.
Executives want their pockets filled at the expense of patient care.
