Deborah Hospital Foundation
August 10, 2010

As a volunteer I have observed that there is a lot of waste at Deborah and supervisors who really are not qualified to hold that position, or they are afraid to "supervise". Employees who make their own hours and come and go as they please. They may work an 8 hour day, but they don't give Deborah 8 hours of work. Too many coffee breaks and the smoke breaks for unbelievable. Applying for a job at Deborah is another joke. The person in charge of interviewing you is so busy trying to break into another career that too much time is wasted between applying for the job and getting the job. Administration is well-paid, and knowing that Deborah is struggling to stay above water, they, too, should have taken large pay cuts--instead, they eliminate jobs, reduce staff, cut back on cleaning the place to save money, as a means of saving money. The people they hurt were to lower salaried people.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get someone in there who is willing to open his/her eyes and clean house from top to bottom by getting rid of dead wood! Unionize the place for the employees protection, so seniority counts. Educate the doctors/nurses in people skills.

Ways to make it better...

There was fairness for all employees The all people would give an honest days work for an honest days pay Management would be honest with the employees

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Having an Emergency Room that gives the impression that it is connected to Deborah Heart and Lung with the same mission statement, when in reality it is separate and apart, and WILL charge patients for their services.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The mission statement of Deborah is idealistic, but we no longer live in those times, and the Board of Directors should re-examine it. New blood is needed, and no offense to the older generation, but, Deborah needs a younger management team.
