    I have been working at Rapid City Regional Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The floor staff are amazing to work with. These are people who love what they do and want to make a difference in peoples lives. The PPL is good.

    Cons

    The CEO needs to get a clue. Always talking about making cuts, seriously underpaying their nursing staff, since they are the only game in town other than clinic or nursing home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your nurses!! Quit cutting their pay or changing their opportunities to get ahead. If you need to make a cut cut your own salary!!

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rapid City Regional Hospital

    Pros

    First, it's kind of the only game in town but aside from that, the employees are predominantly nice and well-intentioned. There are a few who act like you are intruding on their turf but that's true anywhere.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem like there's a rhyme or reason for staffing ratios. Some departments have people sitting about chatting all day while others have staff running around like crazy people with too much to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to employees when designing procedures.

    I worked at Rapid City Regional Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really liked my co-workers. They hire good people, and everyone seems to work really well together.

    Cons

    I did not like the patient to nurse ratio. There were not enough nurses to care for the more acute care patients. I rarely got a full 30 minute lunch break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be willing to work on the floor to help with high workloads.
