Calvary Hospice (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 20, 2016
Loved working, but it was a seasonal job. My boss was a kind woman, and co-workers were great. We all got along great. On a typical day I would do paperwork or visit the patients. I learned how to in interact with the sick. Hardest part was visiting the sick patients and knowing they wouldn't be on earth for long.
Day Supervisor (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – March 26, 2015
A dynamic place to work. The culture is centered on dignity, caring, non- abandonment and compassion for staff,patients and families. Most people have a false sense of the the type of environment it is because the emphasis is on Palliative Care and End of Life, but Calvary Hospital offer other services that most are unaware of. The Wound Care and Outpatient clinic exceptional. The other services offered are Hospice and Home Care. The hardest part of the job is the connection that you make with patients and families. Every patient is special,but some touch your heart. The best part about the job is that you have made a patient comfortable while providing support to the patient's loved ones.
Clerical (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 16, 2015
A typical work day is very routine. I learned a lot of clerical experience in a hospital setting. The management is great and they are always there to work with you, and make sure you learn to the fullest, with what they have to offer. The co-workers are very friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job is being able to handle things at a fast-paced. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to multi-task in a timely manner.
Reasonable lunch breaks, clean and friendly environment, facilities.
Caring, clean and like no other hospital you've been to.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 4, 2013
I go to work with a positive attitude, because my job reminds me how blessed I am each day. I work with terminally ill, approx 80% cancer patients. I love my job and truly enjoy my patients and family. We have 24- hour visiting hours for family, so family really gets involved in care, and that allows staff to build a relationship not only with the patient but their loved one.
salary, family environment. small hospital so staff have good relationship
8 hour work shift, every other weekend. health benefits.
Go in fill out your daily activity log. You learn how to build trust with patient and their families. Your coworkers are very supportive in making sure that you are on target at all times. The hardest part of the job is watching a patient that you have become familiar with dies. The most enjoyable part of the job, is coming in each day and seeing the smiles on the patients faces just to see you.

Though I've only been in the professional workforce for a short period of time, this has been one of the best work environments I've been in. The management were some of the nicest people I've met while at a job.

Ward Secretary (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 3, 2014
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 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.
great pay, some good nursing staff members
some not so great nursing staff, no growth opportunities for employees
Care Partner (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 20, 2014
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 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.
Productive, hard working administrative co-works in a high paced work environment
Internship (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – May 13, 2014
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 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.
worked with administrators who knew how to do their jobs right
