I know from first hand experience that certain doctors let certain nurses call the shots and treat their own family members. This is against all medical ethics and protocol. They also have some of the DUMBEST nurses ever! HORRIBLE hospital.

Funny how everyone forgets the lower paying jobs. Kitchen, housekeeping, laundry, Then there are the other jobs, physical therapy, maintaince, pharmacy, lab, x-ray.

The hospital is not run by dr. and nurses alone.

The maintenance guys still take really long breaks and line up and wait at the time clock at the end of the day.

I don't know about working there but it is an excellent hospital and could not find better care anywhere else because believe me I've been to st Francis and southeast. I had my child ther last year and everyone on the OB floor was phenomenal but I'd have to say my favorites were miss Jessie miss Joyce and miss Kathy. They went above and beyond to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I've also had several family members as patients on other floors and they have had only good things to say. The er does take a long time just to be seen but I've learned that is anywhere you go. The smoking ban was a little too much. Rather than place a ban they should have just moved the smoking shack further away from the hospital if there were so many complaints. I do not smoke and I agree it's not healthy but people should be allowed to make that choice for themselves until the day the govt makes it illegal. As far as the workers from housekeeping to nursing I have seen nothing but hard workers who take pride in their jobs and they are very much appreciated by our community. If the changes being made at the hospital are making things worse for it's employees then maybe they should do things as they did before in order to make things work. One thing I know for sure when it comes to any job. If you don't have happy and satisfied employees then you won't have happy satisfied patients. Therefore you will lose business regardless of whether the need for healthcare is in demand

And you were paid how much to say that? Truth is... The hospital has its good points and bad, just like any other hospital. MoDelta just seems to drop the ball more when it comes to life or death situations. A junkie with a toothache should never take priority over someone with chest pains or head injuries, women who are 7 months pregnant with a fever over 105 should never be forced to sit in the e.r. for hours on end and a hospital bathroom should never sit for 6 hours (after being reported) covered in blood, urine and fecal matter. The e.r. is just as screwed up as always, and the other departments are only as good as their current employees strive to be.

Trust me the employees are NOT happy or satisfied! What are the alternatives? Drive 60+ miles round trip to work at one of the Cape hospitals? With the cost of gas, not to mention losing over an hour of time you could be spending with your family, it's not an option for most! Also joint commission (the agency that accredits hospitals) mandates no smoking campuses for hospitals now. Both hospitals in Cape are non smoking too!

You wouldn't be bettering yourself at either hospital in Cape.
It's the same old shat, just a different hospital. Reference Cape Topix.

Besides smoking being unhealthy, the smokers felt entitled to numerous smoke breaks throughout the day PLUS their lunch break - which they usually overstayed. Do you know how long it takes to walk outside from working area, sit and puff and visit, and walk back to work area? Three to five (or more) times a day? Very unfair to other nonsmoking employees. Fact. I saw it.
