Unique critical access medical experience in in the Heart of the Grand Circle
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Page, AZJuly 22, 2014
Pros: excellent hiking
Cons: isolated.
A typical day at work involves prioritizing a variety of patients of mixed illness and age. Care must be coordinated with limited resources among a multidisciplinary team. The hardest part of the job is coordinating care for a primarily Navajo population, many patients do not speak english and the family are isolated. This has required me to utilize – more... resources and learn Navajo as well as learn the culture to provide culturally competent care to our population. The most enjoyable part of the job is the increased confidence in my skills, knowledge and practice that I gain from the unique challenges of an isolated facility. – less

Great place to work with it's own cafeteria
Patient Financial Specialist (Current Employee), Mesa AzJuly 10, 2014
Pros: free movie ticket to be won at each monthly meeting
Banner Health is a great place to work.Working medicare denials is the most important part of my day. Sometimes it's hard to figure out why medicare denied a claim it's like being a detective and putting all the pieces together but once you get it you have learned a great deal to help with the next project like the aging report. Management and supervisiors – more... are a great group of people. I love my co-workers they are all great. – less

Great company to work for.
Inventory Associate (Former Employee), Glendale, AZJuly 8, 2014
Pros: great early start time, off early
Cons: short breaks, supervisor was not easy to get along with.
Typical day at Banner Health was, start my day off by going in, walking through every department/floor I was in charge of that day, scan the items they each department was low on, check for expired products on the shelves and discard them. Then I would go back and get the products that each department was in need of, take them back to their floors and – more... refill them for that days usage. – less

Every Facility has Strengths and Weaknesses; We still are the best!
Case Manager / Crisis Therapist (Current Employee), Glendale, AZJuly 3, 2014
Pros: i enjoy the work
Cons: no healthcare benefits
A typical day at work is busy, fascinating, never a dull moment. Typically I walk in and get a smile from the staff which is why I chose to work here. People seemed happy and that was the environment I was searching for. What I have learned is that I enjoy and respect the psychiatrists and nurses and when I go home at night I can sleep well knowing – more... that the people we serve have been provided with the best! We care!

Management from my experience is not easy; I have been there. It means being forthcoming with both the positives and the negatives and not waiting to address them until evaluation time. It is having a clear schedule, making sure new employees are trained and comfortable. Not asking anyone to do what you as a supervisor wouldn't do youself. Awhile ago, I was lucky to have a supervisor who was a psychologist and had this amazing talent to point out my weaknesses, and wording it so well done that I was actually motivated to improve with a positive outlook.

Having supportive co-workers provides more of a sense of belonging and it boosts productivity. When there is difficulty with same level co-workers, it needs to be resolved. I think to some extent this is found in every facility to different degrees. If the discord among the team is ignored, then the word "team" is nothing more than an oxymoron.

In my profession the people I serve are going through one of the lowest points in their life, some to the point of not wanting to live anymore. Some are seen with physical wounds. It is very hard at times to see the harm people do to themselves. Some say it should be expected in my profession, but that is not who I am or who I want to be. The hardest part of the job is seeing how little value some put on their life, as well as those who want to hurt others, and/or the terror some have related to a form of psychosis.

The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing that people do gain hope, they can identify their own strengths and improvements, and really utilize resources provided. People can and do get better and some choose to learn from mistakes and make an important impact not only for themselves, but with leading others with wise choices. It takes a team to accomplish this and when it works, that is the most enjoyable part of the job.

I can say with confidence, I have heard many people we serve say "this is the best place I have been." Some say they researched the best rated place, and chose to be in our care because "It is the best." – less

Banner Thunderbird is a great work environment with caring individuals who share the goal of making a patient's stay as comfortable as possible.
Co-Director Kids Can Cope (Current Employee), Glendale, AZJune 30, 2014
Pros: great immaculately clean environment, good cafeteria, most all personnel are most friendly
Cons: parking can be a challenge
Our support groups are stellar. We have many groups that center on the support for a particular disease, so that fellow patients have an opportunity to share with each other on the cancer journey.

A typical evening at work for me at Kids Can Cope is the joy that comes from working with the children. We seem to impart to them just what they need, and – more... they give back with their participation and growth and development on their cancer journey with their parent. We have scheduled periodic meetings with our management at which time, any topics may be brought forward for discussion. My co-director and I are symbiotic, and work very well together with the children, and also the planning of our group topics and activities, such as all the wonderful art projects we do with the children. It would seem that a multi-age group might be difficult. We find it to be the opposite. The older children just seem to naturally lend a helping hand with a project, but, all in all, the little ones hold their own. Art does not have a specific age!

I just fairly recently started producing a handout for the parents to see what topics we covered with their children in the group. They really have appreciated having this, so that they can share with their children a bit of the experience. Parents visit in a separate area with each other. The group is private for the children. For major holidays, we have holiday parties at which time the parents are their children's guests.

The hardest part of the job comes when a parent dies. – less

Recon Specialist (Former Employee), Mesa ArizonaJune 12, 2014
Pros: a good environment
I worked with Banner Health for 3 months in 2013 / 2014. During that period I feel I wasn't trained correctly. I had a manager that never said two words to me during that period. My team lead seem to be very scared of the manager. I felt they didn't give me a chance to learn my job when they would switch me again. In the 3 months I was there I switch – more... to 5 different type of jobs with in the same area. I enjoyed doing the Recon billing work. I felt I was always in the office explaining how I was enjoying my work. Never did they tell me that I wasn't doing wrong. The last straw was when the Manager told me that I wasn't doing a good gob and that I was going to be looked at an then decide if they were going to keep me. I believed this was very unprofessional. I do have many friends that work for Banner Health that say very good words about the place. I do feel I was in the wrong area. I do believe the area should be looked at. I know the Team Lead has transferred. I am know at Brookline College learning the Medical Billing and Coding. – less

Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 10, 2014
Pros: self scheduling, 12 hour shifts and working 4 days a week, available overtime
Cons: short staff, being called in on my day off
I did an average of 60 draws per shift and 65 percent during the morning run between 1:30 and 5 AM. This is a 12 story hospital that includes trauma, ER, behavioral health, oncology, pro-op, infusion, ICU, rehab unit and hospice. I have learned how to draw patients of all demographics while paying attention to detail and thinking on my feet. My supervisor – more... was amazing and responded quickly to concerns and worked right along side my awesome co-workers and myself when needed. The hardest part of this job was working with a skeleton crew. The best part of this job was the team of people I worked with and meeting turn around times even when under staffed. – less

RN in PCU (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 10, 2014
Pros: always room for advancement
Cons: can get burned out working to many hours
I was a bedside RN for open heart patients and loved it. I grew as a nurse every day with great co-workers. Management was always supportive and encouraging. The hardest part of the job was the never ending overtime. The best part of the job was the money made from the endless hours of overtime!! And my favorite part of the job was the education provided – more... to an open heart patient given a second chance in life and being a part in that though continues education for a patients. – less

Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZJune 6, 2014
Pros: technology
Cons: terrible, lazy, and incompetent nurse managers.
I have been a nurse for several years and have never worked at a place this bad. I was at Banner Gateway Medical Center in Gilbert. The recruiter was SOOOO nice and they really put on a show when I was hired and did things like buy my lunch during the interview and show me all around the hospital. When I started working, everything went downhill from – more... there. I got along fine with all the other nurses I worked with but management is rotten. I filled out countless incident reports of many dangerous and/or unprofessional things I would see occur at work. Nobody follows through with incident reports so I felt like I was not being heard. The Emergency Room would send patients to us and leave them in a stretcher in the hallway! I reported this several times and absolutely nothing was done about it. They are ok with this-I am not! Most managers have not been there but a very few years at the most and from what I understand were previous staff nurses that were not good when they worked on the floor. These "nurse managers" do not think they should have to ever help staff. It does not matter how busy we were or what was going on with our patients, they would NOT get out of their office or chairs and help us. It was sickening. They are the most incompetent and meanest nurses out there in charge! I asked tons of questions when I was interviewed and most answers were lies. I was told nurses get three breaks (1 30 minute lunch and 2 15 minute paid breaks). This is hardly the case. I hardly ever got an uninterrupted lunch break. Nurse managers would act snotty if we did not leave our vocera pagers on during lunch if they needed us and believe me they couldn't figure out much for themselves. I actually had a patient fall while I was at lunch and the charge nurse called me only 5 minutes into my lunch to tell me my patient fell and to "check on" the patient when I got back and call the doctor. When I got back she was sitting (of course) pretending to be "busy." I also don't understand why they have so many nurse managers for each unit. This only gives them a reason to be lazy and do nothing. – less

out of touch management
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 3, 2014
Pros: amazing core staff
Cons: management
Overall, the workforce at BGSMC is phenomenal. However, the issue with Banner being such a large company is that management is completely out of touch with the needs of the employees. Most issues arise from a business or monetary aspect, and at the end of the day, its all about the money for this company.

NCMC ED
Staff RN (Current Employee), GreeleyJune 2, 2014
Cons: unsafe nurse to patient ratios, not enough staff, culture in which you are always afraid for your job and your license
The Culture of this organization is terrible. They are only concerned about the bottom line. The Managementt is terrible, untrustworthy, dishonest, and promotes an unsafe working environment. Too many patients per RN. They are always looking for ways to cut corners. The culture has changed. Nobody wants to work there. Numerous nurses and docs have left – more... because of poor leadership. Look for yourself you will see multiple job listing open and for each one of those listing there are 2+ position. Run from this company. They are only interested in their bonuses and bottom lines. They are not caring for their staff and creating a crumbing foundation. Patients are at risk going to this ER, it is unsafe related to nurse to patient ratios. – less

staff nurse
Staff nurse (Former Employee), Glendale, AZJune 2, 2014
My typical day at work starts at 8am. I work in an endoscopy department with ten nurses and 3 technicians. We are like a family. I am assigned to get a patient ready for an endoscopy procedure, help during the procedure, or recover the patient after the procedure. I teach what to expect prior to the procedure and provide instructions on discharge along – more... with information on diagnosis. The patient is able to ask questions and I answer them or find the answer for them. This department receives students at times and I try to allow for them to experience as much as possible for the day they are with us.

I will be finishing my masters in nursing with an emphasis on education July, 2014. I have been a preceptor for most of my career and look forward to instructing the future's nurses. – less
