Director Secretary (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – February 28, 2018
It was a pleasure to work for and with Akron Children's Hospital. They provide invaluable services to families in crisis, as well as to the community at large. I was grateful to be part of an organization doing God's work.
Flexible work schedule within my department. No weekend work except when OT was offered.
Interim physiatry program coordinator (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – February 27, 2018
nurses are paid poorly, very little advocating done by management on the behalf of the nurses. Nurses are regularly mistreated by mgmt. They clearly count on the fact that if you want to work in Peds in the Akron area you don't have a lot of local choices.
For five years, I don't feel I belong there, the people who worked their longer will define who is their people. It is very personal, drama all the time. There are many nice people, but over all, if you are new, it is very hard to fit in no matter how good you are technically.
Director Secretary in Surgery Administration (Current Employee) – Akron, OH – February 23, 2018
typically my day is busy as soon as I get to work. I'm usually the second person to arrive in my office. I print of schedules and daily activity reports.. check phones messages and emails to see what I will need to do for my directors and where they will be all day. There are usually notes for meetings to be typed and distributed and reminder emails for upcoming events. I assist 3 directors so there is never a dull moment.
RN- Pediatrics and Special Care Nursery (Current Employee) – Boardman, OH 44512 – February 22, 2018
I attend to pediatric patients of all ages, start IV's, administer medications, obtain labs, collect specimens, collaborate with doctors. I also have experience of being charge nurse for the whole pediatric unit. I also have experience with adults medical surgical, ED, and School Health Nursing. I have 11 years experience as an RN. I love the constant learning that the nursing field brings. I love being able to make patients feel better and being able to physically see it, that is the most rewarding part of the job.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – December 8, 2017
I loved working there, I learned something new everyday. I left most days feeling good about my job, sometimes patients had a rough day and you feel for them. They are awesome place to work I would recommend it and work for them anytime.
patient liaison/scheduler (Former Employee) – akron – December 8, 2017
Very poor leadership, and extremely high turnover. My experience when working there, was that it was a very negative work environment. I had several managers over the years, most of whom had no management or medical experience at all. They seemed to have lost focus on the big picture of helping children and there families, not just the VIP's. Sorry I worked there as long as I had. The stress was not worth the paycheck.
Insurance is available.
Short staffed, very stressful, cutthroat environment
I have gained a great deal of knowledge working at Akron Children's Hospital. I have met so many amazing people and gave gained so much eperience in my different roles. I also enjoyed working with the children and families.
I typically worked in PACU in a fast paced environment.
