Housekeeping Staff (Former Employee), Martinsburg, WV – September 2, 2014
When working as a housekeeper at City Hospital, I saw various types of emergency situations on a daily basis. As an employee working around these situations, I had to concentrate on getting my job done – more... to accommodate those coming into the ER. The hardest part of the job was seeing the loved ones who followed the victims, some of them not knowing if they were going to leave or have to stay. The best part of my job was getting to work around the intelligent doctors and nurses who treated me as an equal and helped save people in any way they could. – less

Registered Nurse (Former Employee), KS – July 1, 2014
Pros: clean and professional work environment.
Cons: no breaks
North Kansas City Hospital is a professional work environment, and most co workers are friendly. Home Health is very busy, and a wonderful place to work if you do not care to have life outside of this organization.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), KS – April 10, 2014
Pros: co-workers are to work with
Cons: everything else, most days you barely even get to eat
While I loved taking care of the patients, the nurses were overworked and way underpaid. This is the lowest paying hospital. If you bring about a complaint to management, you are more likely to lose your – more... job or receive some sort of punishment. The nurses themselves are great to work with. Everyone bands together to help each other out. On days when the patient census is high and there are not enough nurses, upper management brings around gives each nurse a piece of candy. Most of the time it would upset the nurses because we felt like we were being treated like children. They refuse to listen to the concerns and ignoring anything the nurses have to say. Instead they just bring around more candy! – less
Performed maintenance of mechanical systems, such as; kitchen conveyor belts, gas stoves, plumbing, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, boiler and chiller systems, automatic temperature control, and – more... electrical systems. Daily work orders for a variety of skilled duties in one or more of the hospital’s trades, such as painting, carpentry, cement masonry, dry wall and other recognized crafts for the purpose of maintaining, repairing and remodeling all facilities – less
Pros: staff management, meetings.help when you asked for it.
Cons: heavy patient loads early in the day.
This was the best hospital I ever worked in and I worked in the hospital setting for 40 years! Everyone works together. We maintained excellent Press Gainy scores and always received lots of praise for – more... our care. I learned it was fun to go to work, everyone helped you learn new things. Management did their job and even pitched in to help with patient care when the load was heavy. Hardest part of the job was catering to each MD's whims. Most enjoyable was sending a recently operated on patient home with a smile on their face and gratitude in their eyes! – less
