Certified Pharmacy Technician II (Current Employee) – Galesburg, IL – May 2, 2017
The day has a set time to refill and deliver medicine. I loved learning new things to do, it was exciting for me. I enjoyed the staff, they we all very helpful. The most hardest part was to begin learning about all the new drugs I never heard of. So I found it quit interesting. I really loved my job there! They are now down sizing and I need full time work.
3 RN for over 2 yrs (Current Employee) – Santa Barbara, CA – January 27, 2017
I work evening from 7pm -7:30am. I have learned so much on this med-surg floor. We are as essentially a step down unit, we are the renal, pulmonary and infectious disease floor. RN to pt ration is 1:5. I have experience being charge nurse, resource and a floor nurse. My manager is very nice and approachable. Cottage hospital has lots of room for growth and treat employees very well. Best thing about my unit is the people I work with. We all help each other out and get along well. Hardest part of the job is that sometimes due to our patient population sometimes our patients are high acuity. Some assignments you can have multiple active detoxing patients, psych patients, or patients who not oriented for various reasons. That being said we get a lot of CF patients and get to form a real connection with them which is nice. Overall Cottage and my floor are wonderful places to work.
Great staff, room to grow, utilization of many RN skills on my unit
Cottage Hospital has been a wonderful place to work. As a critical access hospital, we see a variety of patients who live locally for inpatient and outpatient services. It has been a rewarding experience to work here.
The hospital has a bustling emergency department and equally busy outpatient draw station. Add in a substantial outreach program and we have a steady workflow in an extremely Lean facility. Budgets have to be closely monitored.
Great place to work, the people you work with are great, you meet many different people from the community and working relationships. A typical day is not so typical. Very unpredictable for this job which is what is exciting about it.

a typical day at Cottage is a busy one. there is always something to do. If not in your department in another. I have learned alot here. in a company that cross trains you in multiple departments you have to know a lot. Th e cross training mixes it up so you are not working a stagnant desk job. The hardest part of the job is that you never get to the end of your work list. you leave your work day with a sense of projects unfinished. I personally have a n issue with this. I like arriving the next work day with a clean slate. The most enjoyable part of the job are the patients. I love them! You get to know them and they know you and you build a repore with them.
