MANAGER/PT ADVOCATE (Current Employee) – Warrenton, VA – July 25, 2018
Fauquier Health is a great place to get a start. Initially, the company was very family oriented, however, it is now part of a huge corporation. With that being said, I believe there are other places that would be more satisfactory to the employees.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Warrenton, VA – May 29, 2018
I truly enjoyed working with this health system. The staff and benefits were great! The loved working with the geriatric population. I always felt as I could communicate with my staff without any concern.
The dependability of staff showing up for their shift.
Lead hematology technician (Current Employee) – Warrenton, VA – April 19, 2018
Lovely people to work for and with. Upper management needs to help implement raises. Lab management is wonderful and works very hard to keep techs happy and engaged in changes. Great teamwork among colleagues. But can lead to long days with short staff and busy volumes.
Social Worker/Case Manager (Current Employee) – Warrenton, VA – March 27, 2018
People give long hours to this facility. There is no room for advancement. Favoritism is sometimes shown. Alot of micro managing happens. Upper management is focused/centered on the bottom line. Patient focused care has declined.
Not a good choice if you enjoy being noticed for good work
Medical Technologist, Generalist (Current Employee) – Warrenton, VA – March 6, 2018
Most of the employees are decent with the exception of a few chronic abusers of pto. Management leaves much to be desired. They are more concerned with the bottom dollar than properly staffing the Lab. Management also fails to reward hard workers but instead babies the people who cry wolf at every life event they create. No one speaks out for fear of reprisal.
Radiology (Former Employee) – Warrenton, VA – February 4, 2018
This was a caring, personalized community hospital that provided compassion and care for both staff and patients. This is absolutely no longer the case. Since being purchased by LifePoint the focus is now the profit margin; nothing more. Staffing levels have been slashed which has lead to a mass exodus of veteran, skilled employees. Management receives bonuses for coming in under budget regardless of how this is achieved. The overall attitude, which has literally been a response to staff’s voiced concerns, is that “you should be happy you have a job”. The Fauquier Health of old is mourned by myself and those medical professionals that are actually interested in not only making a decent living but equally interested in making a difference. While this location may be convenient in terms of commute time/traffic, it is worth a drive to be a part of a health system that has the moral and ethical integrity Fauquier is sorely lacking.
Clinician II & Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Warrenton, VA – October 30, 2017
The hospital has since changed owners. It is now part of UVA Health. Hopefully it has become a more likable place to work. Before it was "who you knew" as to how your work day was. Also the hours kept being varied.
Food Service Associate (Former Employee) – Warrenton, VA – August 7, 2017
I enjoyed my actual job; serving food to elderly residents. I did not enjoy the work environment, where the management was toxic and people gossiped about each other behind their backs. We only had three workers for every shift: one cook and two servers for 70-some residents, and about 10 workers in the kitchen total. For that reason, we were often stretched rather thin. Cooks sometimes had to work for a full month without a single day off should one take a vacation. As for management, my would have us pick through moldy produce just to find one that appeared salvageable to save even a small amount of money for himself. Other times, he denied simple things to residents like ice cream and generally have us treat them like children, despite being the opposite. He would change the work schedule without our knowledge after giving us our copy, and then deny it. If you are young, and have the stomach for toxic management, you might be fine working there, but I would not apply unless you really needed the money.
Floor Staff (Current Employee) – Warrenton, VA – June 21, 2017
When I first started here, this was a great place to work. We almost always had adequate staff and got bonuses for picking extra shifts if there were short days. Now, when we need staff and have enough patients to validate it staff members are put on call to save money and we are forced to work short staffed. It's unsafe and unfair. Not to mention bonuses for picking up shifts are gone and they do everything to avoid giving you overtime if you do work an extra shift. It's pitiful. The higher ups in the hospital OBVIOUSLY care about nothing more than lining their pockets and it's forcing even management away as well as floor staff. When you hear about hospitals tanking, this is what they mean and Fauquier Hospital is definitely headed that direction.
Pay rate is nice
Understaffed, staffing cuts, unsafe patient ratios, expensive health insurance with high copays and deductables, minimal retirement contributions
