Medical Technologist (ASCP), Second Shift (Former Employee) – Morehead City, NC – February 24, 2017
1) My first job out of college; I was the sole tech working in the lab on second shift with one phlebotomist. My phlebotomist and I were a very solid work team that were very efficient and effective. 2) Other staff were very well trained and dependable.

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.
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.
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.

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
