I worked at Family Care Of EJC for 16 years. My manager had to retire not by choice she had been there around 10 years. My Front office manager left after 38 years not by choice. Everybody working there had been there 10 years and longer. The office was wonderful until the new manager came in and got rid of everyone & brought in her people. She fired me & I got a lawyer to prove she had made up something not true to fire me. I won & was told I was wrongfully terminated & recieved my unemployment. The woman screwed up a lot of lives by taking peoples jobs. She only got rid of women over 40 & hired in women under 30 years. My advice is don't work for HCA.
What is HCA MidWest Health sick leave policy? How many sick days do you get per year?
No sick days, unlike other hospitals. Your PTO is accrued if you are only full time and is dependent on hours worked. You get a point if you’re sick. You don’t, however, by coming in and then leaving. Which makes no sense to infect others including patients.
What advice would you give the CEO of HCA MidWest Health about how to improve it?
Work with us at bedside during a high census shift. Don’t just say hi & give donuts, do what we do during our real 12-hour shift, a total 100% bedside care for patients & their families who are well beyond our safe nurse-patient ratio. Then only you’ll understand why your company has a very high turnover rate. Some of us stay just so we can finish our contract but that’s it. Never again we’ll go back until it becomes all worth it & safe & fair not only for us but most especially our patients.
Going to work at RMC induced stress. Right at the beginning of the shift trying to find your assignment was stressful because there was so much disorganization and the assignments were frequently changed after being handed out. Too much micromanaging going on there and not enough focus on the big picture. Communication among coworkers was nonexistent and the predatory nursing culture induced paranoia and hostility between staff members.
What is the vacation policy like at HCA MidWest Health? How many vacation days do you get per year?
The vacation policy requires the employee to use their accrued PTO hours. Otherwise the employee doesn't get a vacation.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make HCA MidWest Health a better place to work?
I can't think of how I could make this facility a better place to work. I truly enjoyed my time there
