Patient Transporter/OR attendant (Current Employee) – Morehead City, NC – June 2, 2016
Overall, great company to work for. Employees and employers are very helpful. I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a great opportunity to get their foot in the door at a well organized medical facility.
Registered Nurse, Staff (Current Employee) – Morehead City, NC – May 19, 2015
I began my career at this company as a brand new surgical technician with many family problems. I was pregnant within three months of joining this organization, and feared for my future. This company worked with me through the pregnancy and delivery, helped me navigate the trials and tribulations of family life as I learned how to become a great patient care giver, and rewarded me with a salary and benefits to support my growth. After six years of employment with CGH, I decided to become a registered nurse, and CGH helped me by creating a special work shift that fit my school schedule. They also assisted my tuition and book purchases. Once I became a nurse, I was continually supported through family changes, given excellent learning and growth opportunities, and encouraged to continue my career in the operating room. I have seen a high turnover of staff, management, and physicians through the years. People come to my area of the country to obtain an easier lifestyle, and are often disappointed at how much work there is to do here. There isn't a lot of financial gain to be had in this community, and there is a great focus on retirement and tourism, so young people do not often find stimulation in this environment. CGH does a good job at recruiting members, but has needed improvement in retaining them. I had planned on making CGH a small stop in my career, however, it has been my home for 21 years. I would recommend this organization to employees who are motivated to work, able to make funds stretch, and willing to dig in to the local community.

Monitor Tech (Current Employee) – Morehead City NC – October 12, 2015
My typical days includes watching at least 30 plus heart monitors and assessing the rate and rhythm. I give my results to the nurses for the entire hospital and get them updated on any changes. At times I go to the patients room to update or fix the monitor and or leads.
Get to interact with many employees mainly nurses and doctors
Medical Technologist (Current Employee) – Morehead City, NC – May 24, 2015
Please don't link me to this.Carteret General Hospital is a medium hospital that is lacking in management skills. I feel that the pay is substandard and there lack of caring is a huge issue. Plus the rules and regulations made me feel like I was in High School.
provide bedside care to patients in the critical care unit
Critical Care RN (Former Employee) – Morehead City, NC – August 24, 2015
12 hours shifts with a nurse /patient ratio typically 2:1. often required to provide total care to a wide variety of patients. I provided conscious sedation at the bedside for patients undergoing various procedures. a tremendous amount of time educating family members regarding specific patient needs.
Dietary Technician (Former Employee) – Morehead City, NC – June 10, 2014
Deliver food in a hospital setting. Good people but low pay. They never raised my pay and paid those whom I trained more than me. They did work around my school schedule and taught me about PPE and cleanliness at the work place. I learned about supply chain and organization was well.
CENTRAL SURGICAL SERVICES TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Morehead City, NC – June 16, 2013
A typical day at Carteret general is always different. I find that the first part of the week is always very busy with total hip/knee surgery. but this leads to learning how to work as a cohesive team to get the job or certain situation accomplished.
Management is always there to lend a helping hand no matter what the situation. My co-workers are always very dedicated hard working team players.
The hardest part of the job is to be able to handle the overwhelming workload when a co-worker is on leave, but as a team we always manage.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the exciting daily new challenges.
being able to work with very dedicated individuals who are all concerned with patient safety.
not enough time in an eight hour shift to get everything accomplished
great stepping stone into the hospital environment
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Morehead City, NC – May 26, 2014
Drawing blood from inpatients on the 3rd shift 11p - 7a. I learned more about patient care and how to work with other staff members from different parts of the hospital. Management was very professional and showed true concern for each employee. Learning how to effectively and quickly take specimens from multiple patients and get them back to the lab in a timely manner was challenge initially but soon became easier as I developed a system that worked for me. watching patients improve in over all health was the most enjoyable part of my job.
I would not recomend employment with Carteret General
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Morehead City, NC – December 26, 2012
Working with the patients was the most enjoyable part of the job. Knowing that you are taking a part in helping them get better is very rewarding. I learned alot during my employment at Carteret General. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the drama amongst co-workers, and always being short staffed. My suggestion is if seeking employment with this hospital, that if you are expecting to recieve benefits make sure that you are hired as an full-time employee from the start. If you take a PRN position, expect to work full-time hours with no benefits.
Charge Nurse, also staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Morehead City, NC – September 10, 2014
Very busy MedSurg unit, while working at CGH I was able to participate in different areas getting a diverse group of skills I trained in the Oncology Clinic and worked additional days there to be certified to administered chemo therapy to outpts admited to MedSurg dept on the days I was working, for a few hours. not only for their IV chemo ,but also for bld transfussions, Other out pts, with PICC lines would come for antibiotic IV treatment. The hardest part of my job : wanting to fit all I wanted to do for the pts and sometimes I could not do all the extras I wanted to be able to give to pts. Most enjoyable: the warm friendly enviroment at work and in the community
small place community and hosp allows you to feel like you know everybody
some occassions when pts needed transfer to bigger hosp. with more resouuces
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Morehead City, NC – May 23, 2013
I enjoyed working here. A typical day at work was 12-14 hours, but only 3 days a week. I learned many new skills while employed here. My co-workers became my very close friends. Management could've had some additional training on following through with committments. The most enjoyable part of the job is the patient care.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Morehead City, NC – April 20, 2012
Helping out patients and getting to know new people are some perks to the job. I learned how to be more outgoing and how to file different types of insurances. My managers are the best I have ever worked with. I worked the 3rd shift (which was awesome) and my co-workers were the best to work with. We would help out each other without asking. Hardest part of the job is seeing tragic events. I like working in the ER, seeing the different cases that come in and meeting the new people.
prn (Former Employee) – Morehead City, NC – January 8, 2015
switched from carolina therapy services to in house therapy. cut back on staff. staff scattered to accommodate home health outpatient. they would rather do missed visits than to hire prn to assure pt. visits. following chain of command doesnt get employees anywhere.
big area to cover, low/no reimburse for time travel
