xray tech (Former Employee), Wilmington, OH – June 10, 2014
My experience with this hospital was terrible as an employee. Too many changes with the new company. I could not take care of patients and do my job because of all the new documentation to be done that was of no value . Management was a joke. No help to lift patients and make sure they were safe. Trauma patients were left unattended without a nurse – more... when shifted to other areas of treatment. I never had to work so hard and get paid so little. They need to take a good look at their hospital. I could not work there due to the stress . Lack of help produces poor quality of care. – less
direct contact with patients to make sure they are getting the proper meals and snacks to help them. Also help cleaning up the dishes that are needed for the day. I have also helped order and recieve products for the food preparations.
I enjoy working in a facility with great co-workers.
ER Staff RN (Current Employee), Wilmington, OH – October 6, 2012
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: at times no breaks and changing of shifts worked from 0700-1900, 1100-2300 and 1500-0300. it is possible to work all three of these shifts in one week.
I work 12 hour shifts in a very busy ER. Patients are seen, treated and dispositioned very quickly. We generally see between 90 and 115 patients in a 24 hour period. I have learned a great deal about working with lower income patients and how to help them with education of disease processes, obtaining medications and medical equipment including home – more... oxygen, assisting with obtaining meals on wheels and home care assistance. Management has had a dramatic change in the past 2 years since our hospital went from a non profit to a for profit hospital. My co-workers are good team players, offering assistance when they have down time and are willing to pitch in with a difficult patient. The hardest part of this job is the physical demands on us. At times we work a full 12 hour shift with no breaks when we are very busy.Being a small hospital we do not have the number of resources that a large hospital has. Many patients are transferred to trauma centers or hospitals with more advanced care for cardiac, neuro and orthopedic car I enjoy the diversity of patients we see in the emergency room. Pediatric patients are fun but can be quite challenging and I feel I learn more about care of this population of patients daily. It is very satisfying to have a really sick patient come to us and leave (whether admitted or discharged) greatly improved. – less
Cons: having a few growing pain with new management
