Productive, hard working administrative co-works in a high paced work environment
Internship (Current Employee), Bronx, NYMay 13, 2014
Pros: worked with administrators who knew how to do their jobs right
Cons: too short.
On average a typical work day would consist of, helping the administrator with filing paper, scanning, faxing, making photo copies, and organizing paper work. The hardest part of the job was dealing with cancer patients and not being so emotional when people did die. Death is a part of life and Calvary Hospital is a place where they make the last moments – more... of the patients life better before they past. When you are a patient at Calvary you only have three to six months to live. That was the hardest thing for me to deal with. – less

Most confused place ever
Ward Secretary (Current Employee), Bronx, NYApril 3, 2014
Pros: great pay, some good nursing staff members
Cons: some not so great nursing staff, no growth opportunities for employees
Calvary Hospital has its ups and downs. The pay is good for anyone starting but the down fall is some of the employees. Many will sit around and won't do much work and everyone expects you to do things for them. Employees depending on who, will ignore the patient call bells leave me to answer them and some patients will repeatedly ring the bell until – more... someone comes to them. A typically day can vary. Evenings can go smoothly but then there are days that you just need to leave somehow because its crazy. Some of the Senior staff will favors employees who have been there longer over newer employees and can sometimes pick on newer employees. Overall Calvary can make one feel stressed and overwhelmed. – less

A Place Where Life Continues
Care Partner (Former Employee), Bronx, NYJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: patients smiles
Cons: the death of the patients
Calvary Hospital is a great employer. A typical day at Calvary for me tended to be a breeze due to my position as a care partner with entailed that i provide complete companionship to the patient that i was caring for that day. That was the best part of the job, the patients and their families. And that was also the worst part of the job,Calvary is – more... a hospice and with every patient i wanted to fix any and every problem they had. So i tried anything from playing music and dancing to watching a show with them. Sometimes i got on my other coworkers nerves because some would say that i over attended to the patients. But i had a great experience there and i learned alot about to nursing field. – less

Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Bronx, NYApril 4, 2013
Pros: salary, family environment. small hospital so staff have good relationship

Asistente de enfermería. (Former Employee), Sydney, NSWMarch 10, 2014
Pros: el uniforme era regalado, me descontaban un dinero para mi retiro.no tenía afp .media hora de desayuno y otra para el almuerzo, casino.café y leche gratis.
Cons: estacionamiento pequeño.
Comenzaba a las 07:00 de la mañana hasta las 15:030 ,muchas veces realicé doble turno y terminaba a las 22:00.
En paliativo trabajamos tres personas por sección ,asistente de enfermería ,enroll de enfermería y la enfermera .
Teníamos una supervisora de turno y los managers.
Con mis colegas teníamos que ayudarnos si la otra sección lo necesitaba
Lo más – more... complicado era al caerse un paciente .pedíamos ayuda de inmediato.y la mayoría del staff concurría.
Lo que más me gusto fue interactuar con una diversidad cultural.
Una gran Experiencia y gran responsabilidad. – less
