Not the best employer to work for. A typical day in the ER is hectic and not worth the stress. Most of the nurses seem as though they hate their lives and it is not a place in which any bubbly or happy person should work, they will suck the life out of you. They also work you like a dog and are completely understaffed. I would not recommend.

Dirtiest hospital I've ever worked in. Contracted Erysipelas twice myself. Doctors were not very capable. Management was horrendous. Human Resources suspended me without pay for 5 days without a hearing for dealing with an unruly,hostile patient. Received virtually no support from management or coworkers. Never received any trading or inservices.
Close to home. Hospital based EMS with many well Qualified personnel.
BH has so much potential. The base is there but I'm afraid the leadership is overzealous. Low paying wages with no incentive. The inpatient facility is antiquated and teetering on unacceptable conditions. Because of the current situation your job will require lots of trouble shooting and added responsibilities that become a frustration. If it was not for the will of the staff to care for the patients this hospital would feel the decline. Very high employee turnover rate. A+ to caring staff while under paid, A+ to BH team of physicians, C- to accommodations & over paid executive leader.
Low pay/low wage increase/ lots of trouble shooting

The management make it difficult to work here. Very Micro managed and confusing at times. Hardest part is dealing with changes all the time and worrying about hospital closing all the time plus no raises.

They are a very busy hospital but work with employees with scheduling. The experience I received there has been amazing. I have shown many different ways of doing things. This is a teaching hospital and its a great place.

Work/life balance can be good, but there is a price for this. Advancement is limited unless you work 60+ hours week or know the right people. Rewards often seem based on favoritism. Evolving leadership team over the past 3 years. Lots of changes, hopefully for the better. But, some very good leaders have left recently.
Patient Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Bristol, CT – April 18, 2017
Some of the crew that I had the pleasure of working with was extremely degrading and always had to point out that I was the "fresh meat" and new kid to the block. I was unwanted before anyone gave me the opportunity to really find my niche. I enjoyed my job and my title however, the title name game did not impress me and contributed to me leaving my position there.
Patient Care Associate (Current Employee) – Bristol, CT – April 4, 2017
A small community hospital with Magnet recognition. A highly praised facility with compassionate and caring people in every aspect. From the nursing staff down to the housekeepers, this facility allows me to go into work smiling every day, and leave feeling like I've truly made an impact on someones life.
