Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Inglewood, Ca – January 14, 2018
It is one of the lowest paying hospitals in the area. It is difficult to do your job when there are not enough working computers on the unit and nurses are fighting for them or when the supplies you need to do your job are not working either. Difficult to get a hold of doctors at night. High turnover rate. Many of the nurses I started with quit before finishing orientation or immediately after. Always short staffed. Have TPC’s almost every night and charge nurse is almost always in ratio. Rarely have a break where I am not interrupted. Great coworkers who are team players but poor management. Definitely would not recommend to a friend.
Great coworkers that were team players
Low pay, management not connected with floor workload
Telemetry Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Inglewood, CA – January 6, 2018
I wouldn't recommend this hospital because the pay is extremely low for an RN. My base pay is $32.00/hr. I do like my co-workers but with just 11months of experience there I have worked with so many new hires. It's just a high turnover rate there because management is not connected with the demands of a floor nurse and the pay is insanely low. We always have TPC's and our charge nurse is often in ratio, which means we don't have coverage for an uninterrupted break.
staff are team players and fun to work with
Management Isn't connected with the workload of us floor nurses. Pay is too low
RN (Former Employee) – Inglewood, CA – October 10, 2017
This place hires a lot of new grads in all departments. The ER is full of new grads so we tend to question the safety of patients and if they were treated appropriately in the ER. I had the best mentor in Centinela hospital and glad I was able to gain the experience as a telemetry nurse.
RN Med/Surg (Former Employee) – Inglewood, CA – August 12, 2017
The best part of this job are the co workers, very helpful and friendly. It is a prime facility, so resources are limited, pay is on the lower end of the spectrum. There are always positions opening up, after a while you should be able to move to a different specialty if you like.
Registered Nurse, Cardiovascular ICU (Current Employee) – Inglewood, CA – July 28, 2017
A typical work day consists of all nursing responsiblities: assessments, medication administration, communication with care providers and families. Because there are so many new faces, people are eager to help and explain when you have questions.
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – Inglewood, CA – June 29, 2017
If you have issues finding a job as an acute care RN, apply here. They are always hiring. They have walk-in hiring events, so look out for those too. Its a big hospital , medsurg and Tele on multiple floors. Busy like most hospitals. Good support here, great nurses. They are a little more organized than other hospitals I have worked at.
HIM Clerk (Former Employee) – Inglewood, CA – June 15, 2017
Our management was just ok but my coworkers was very nice to work with it was like family. I picked up L&D charts and Outpatient records and indexed, prepped and scanned them in the system. Answer phones
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Inglewood, CA – May 29, 2017
Centinela is under financial crunches that sacrifice both employees and patients. The revolving door devalues everyone. They continually hire inexperienced nurses for the lower dollar value then do not properly train them.
Diet Clerk (Current Employee) – Inglewood, CA – March 15, 2017
In a typical day at the Centinela Hospital, everyone is usually friendly and talkative when they see you. During my time at Centinela, I have come to learn a lot of things, in addition to acquiring new skills. The management is good, but there are definitely areas that need improvement. The workplace culture is quite diverse and it has employees of different nationalities. The hardest part of my job as a diet clerk at Centinela is dealing with patients that are non-compliant. On the contrary, the most enjoyable part of my job is making sure the patient is happy and satisfied with their meal order.

admitting clerk (Former Employee) – Inglewood, CA – April 5, 2016
Great people , great supervisor I would love to become an employee their again. The company had great security also I felt very safe , the response time for the patient care wasn't great but most of the doctor seem to be committed to helping the patients.
Best manager and supervisor I could ever hope to work for.
NICU Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Inglewood, CA – July 17, 2015
When you can come into work and not have to worry about the power trips some people need to bring to work, you can focus in on the jobs at hand more in depth resulting better outcomes for my patients as well as co-workers. My Manager and direct Supervisor told me when I started there "Just do the job we pay you for to the ability we expect you can provide and I/we will have your back". And they always did.
