Patient Care Technician/CNA (Former Employee) – Alton, IL – November 9, 2017
Very nice place to work. Excellent people to work with. Learned a lot about the medical and surgical hospital setting. Hard watching patients struggle through their ailments. But was very proud to be part of their recovery.

While you always have your drama in the workplace, at AMH, we work well as a team. I work night shift, and one down side is the limit of breaks. Since night shift is lower staffed, we don't get the breaks/lunch time that day shift does.
Lead Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Alton, IL – August 22, 2017
My boss at the time was horrible and the boss over her was worse. The Human Resource lady was just as bad. I would suggest making sure not to work in housekeeping because there is not a single manager in that department that knows what they are doing. There are other people that work there that shouldn't be.
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Alton, IL – May 21, 2017
Perfect job for the college student trying to make some decent dough. Don't let the phlebotomy or sick patients scare you. Great working environment, everyone was willing to help me. Worked PRN, so nights, evenings, and all of the above on the weekends.

Busy at times. Pay was fair but standard. Night shift can be disregarded at times but that's typical for an acute hospital. Felt staff had too much power over schedule which was not always fair and consistent.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Alton, IL – November 18, 2015
I loved my job and working for AMH. We were always fast paced and I loved working with others. The management needed some improvement but I'm sure they've worked that out by now. My co-workers were amazing and always willing to help out when needed. We worked as a time from the time we clocked in to the time we clocked out. The hardest part of my job was seeing so many sick patients and knowing that I was going to have to poke them with a needle. Also doing blood draws on infants. I loved my job and my time there, I was sad to have to leave. We had fun but also got our draws done.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Alton, IL – July 27, 2015
I personally loved when I volunteered at AMH. Some days it was really fast pace, which I enjoyed. The nurses I worked under, on the surgical care unit, were very helpful and open. The residents were lovely to care for.

Must be a critical thinker, ready to work hard, understaffed and not expect much appreciation or praise. Staff generally is disgruntled and morale is low. Patient care is high with a great respiratory staff.
No uninterrupted breaks, no food offered at mealtimes, no support for night shift
Registered Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Alton, IL – February 14, 2015
RT has little to no say in patient care. Physicians order unnecessary therapies. I love taking care of my patients, especially the elderly but it is difficult when I disagree with care or feel that care is deficient.
