Huge turnover and poor management.
Staff (Current Employee), PrivateJuly 29, 2014
Pros: pay is middle of the road, nurses are great.
Cons: workloads, poor orientation process, leadership turnover.
There is a consistent turnover in management and in leadership rolls that never seems to stop. In 2013, nearly 70+ therapists left this hospital and they typically hire new grads without any experience. The orientation process sets up staff for failure and they are often left learning from outdated practitioners.

When the hospital is short staffed, – more... the managers and directors have NEVER stepped in to help and left the hospital with an unsafe number of therapist to cover. Poor example of true leadership and many of the staff have had to stay 24+hrs (without a choice). Stay clear of that department, worst in the system! – less

Alyways there
Health Care Technician/Unit Secretary (Former Employee), Rock Hill, SCJune 19, 2014
Pros: teamwork
The teams you worked with no matter if you had to go to another unit, were always there if you need anything at all. They would make you smile and would do anything to make the shift go by as easy as possible. If you needed to talk to someone including management, they were there. I had to have surgery while working there and they were there for me. – more... Even when I came back. You don't find many places like that. – less

About me
Certified Nursing Assistant I (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCApril 18, 2014
My typical day at work would be caring for patient's who need help or assistance with ADL's. I do bathing, feeding, cleaning,etc. The hardest part about my job is trying to satisfy everyone which is very hard. I try my best to leave out making sure I do a good job and leaving a smile on everyone's face.

Trauma 1 hospital
CRT Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCMarch 24, 2014
Pros: great team work
Cons: short breaks due to it being busy, and the needs of the patient, but its what you signed on for so you deal with it.
Your day typically starts out with assessment of the patient, checking orders written by the doctors, then you go in to meet the patient and family. Explain your role and begin giving breathing treatments, and checking ventilators if the patient is on one. Working with a great team of therapist makes a hard day seem easy because you know that if you – more... get tied up someone will be there to help you. The hardest part of the job is watching the family pleading for you to tell them everything is going to be okay, and you can't always guarantee that, so you do the best you can to help make everything as easy for them as possible. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing some of the most injured patients get better, and eventually leave, knowing that you had a part in their care, makes the hard days worth it. – less

My eight and a half years working at Carolinas Medical Center was an overall positive experience.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: working on a unit with a population that i love to serve
Cons: long shifts
I took a position on a part time track in October of 2004 on the mother/baby unit. I changed my position to prn in July of 2007 in order to have more time for my family.
I loved being a bedside nurse for mothers and their newborns, however, the twelve hour shifts were very long and hard on my body. I always had a good working relationship with my co-workers – more... and managers. – less

Learned alot of skills, how to do charge, how to delagate, how to help others and how to assist doctors.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: working with a team.
Cons: long hours and short lunches.
The day started with getting report and choosing a patient load. I learned how to do peritoneal dialysis, how to care for someone coding, how to give chemo, how to care for asthma patients, chon's,
severe burns, broken bones, cardiac cath preparation, feeding tubes, IV's, give blood and numerous other skills. I was taught how to do charge and I did – more... so on multiple occasions, had to learn how to delegate and how to set up a satellite unit on my own. The hardest part of the job was dealing with parents of dying children and that was also the best part, because I knew what would mean the most to them once the shock wore off, as I had gone through it myself. Dealing with victims of child abuse was also hard. Holding a child with AIDS that most people wouldn't touch was very rewarding. – less
