Ultrasonographer (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, NM – November 6, 2015
I have supported and been supported by a close-knit radiology department. Excellent patient care and excellent studies is our main focus. Our motto is "support the team!!" We are all team players. We work alongside the ER doctors and they depend on us for a preliminary diagnosis based on what we see.
Excellent benefits, healthcare and a healthy work environment
Unit Ward Secretary (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, NM – July 13, 2015
I have learned tremendously in this exciting and fast paced setting. I am very fortunate to work alongside very competent and intelligent group of individuals. I am very grateful to be a part of this institution and growing as an individual.
A typical day here consisted of counting tills, counteracting theft with excellent customer service, assisting customers with purchases, questions, and complaints. I learned more about today's workplace from this job than all of my previous experience combined. This included the basics of metrics, loss prevention, building rapport with customers, communicating effectively as a key part of the team, and training fellow coworkers
RN (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, NM – December 16, 2014
Arriving to work at 0630, I receive bedside report from the night shift nurse, I then proceed to check the patients profile for any new orders or information the night nurse might not have mentioned. After checking for new orders, I assess my patients, begin med pass, and assist my patients with whatever needs they might have at the time. Through out the day I work on my charting, assisting physicians with dressing changes if need be, and prepare patients for any tests or procedures they are scheduled to have for the day. Change of shift happens between 1830-1900.
I really enjoyed going to work on the med/surg unit because of the people I worked with. Our director however was usually a little lost and not up to date with what was going on on the floor and didn't seem to care about employees as individuals. Also talked down to lower employees such as CNA's. The rest of the work environment was great! Interdepartmental communication was also wonderful.
People I worked with and upper management was always helpful

Management stinks, workloads divided unfairly, RRT's work for free, not I, were forwarned about consequences of this practice, staff not appropriately licensed for certain positions held due to inability to attract licensed staff because of reputation, too much work, management inapproriate and stuck on themselves, HR manager lashes out, loses temper and control, she is easiliy intimidated by people who have larger build then herself, only hospital in town and they act like they're the best and there the worse. I have worked all over this country and in 15 years I have NEVER seen a hospital so poorly run with such OLD management and so VERY unprogressive and barbaric. Management extremely disrespectful of staff, Worse place I have EVER worked. UNSAFE!!!
I found that the work in this hospital was fast paced, plenty of good experience for those willing to take advantage of it and an overall fairness demonstrated by management. Encouraged to work and learn in all areas of care for the ones who want more than just a job. Leaving this job for me was a difficult decision to make and in retrospect was very hard to do. Only unusual circumstances prevented me from staying at this job until retirement. Thank you, Kind regards, WDM
small hospital with a chance to work all areas of the house and learn what is avainable if willing.
some staff do not get along well with each other but, as a general rule all will pitch in and help when it is needed.
Staff Therapist (Former Employee) – Carlsbad – February 21, 2012
Not a very good place to work at the moment. It used to be a great place but it's gone down hill right now....could use a lot of work. It has a very hostile enviroment to work in but the people that you treat are great people and an honor to work with and know. I would come back and work with them again if all the things were fixed and delt with. I worked with them a total of over five years and the people are great.
