Stressful but secure
RN Family Care Unit (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJune 7, 2017
The hospital environment can be stressful for a new nurse just learning their role. Days are long and it seemed that the new nurse always got scheduled for the weekend shifts. Management is absent at most times, and the charge nurse is usually just as busy so it is hard to get help with new skills and assessments. Benefits and frequent pay raises were a plus, as well as other programs that are offered.
Pros
Benefits and pay
Cons
Stressful work conditions

Staff Nurse- Traveler (Current Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAApril 25, 2017
Nurses were nice to work with. Hospital was clean and fairly organized for a small hospital. Guaranteed work is a problem when the census drops. All the travelers were cancelled prior to their contract end date without any compensation.
Pros
Clean environment, nice nurses
Cons
Small NICU and some outdated equipment but functional

Excellent patient care is primary
Radiololgic Technologist (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAOctober 30, 2015
The staff is supportive of each other and have a strong bond and desire to maintain the welfare of co-workers. This benefits the patient when the job is mentally and physically draining as this 'team work' approach ensures the patient is not adversely affected. The care of each worker for the patient is obvious in the concern for detail and time spent on each patient.

Enjoyed my job for 25 years
O.R. Materials Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJuly 21, 2015
I worked for the company for over 25 years. Enjoyed my time employed there. I started working there right out of high school. I started in the basement and worked my way up to Surgical Services. Bakersfield Memorial went from being a private hospital to merging with CHW, then becoming Dignity Health Corporation. The feel of family and appreciation of being a valued employee was lost.
Pros
Pay, Health Benefits
Cons
Management decision making and corporate restructure

Fast and crazy ER. Wouldn't have it any other way!
Charge Nurse ER (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJanuary 12, 2015
Crazy ER with VERY few resources (no IV team, scarce psych/social services, IV pumps hard to come by, etc.). Dignity Health has great benefits, including free HMO coverage to all family members, tuition reimbursement, decent PTO, as an RN you are a part of the CNA, 40 hours a year education pay, home/auto discounts, etc.

I felt supported by management even though I was a newbie RN when I started. Even when I left, the director will still offer rave reviews to my prospective employers. Very close-knot ER family, everyone will help you if you ask. It gets crazy, it is so busy but the shifts fly by. Management was always great with the self-scheduling and fair with vacations.
Pros
Decent pay, great benefits, flexible schedules, fair management style
Cons
Few 15 min breaks, scarce hospital resources
