You never have the same day twice at danbury hospital! Some days are better than others and some days you wonder if you can effectively complete your job. Working in a hospital has it pros and cons just as any other job but the experience is worth it. Even through the most difficult of days you can usually rely on staff to assist you in any way. If you like to move fast and you're a fast learner, I'd recommend this job!
Understaffed a majority of the time and yearly review is based on additional time you can put into work life-meetings and committees. Medical insurance benefits are ok as long as you stay within the network. Prescription benefits have gotten worse. Salary/hourly rate are great, especially if you pick up extra hours with understaffing. Stressful environment to work when understaffed. Co-workers make it better to work with looking out for each other. Paid time off is based on control hours/years, which are fair. Management try to do the best they can, but a lot is out of control especially when understaffed. Co-workers for the majority look out for each other, trying to make the work environment a little more at ease.
The unit I am currently working is great, everyone, RN, PA, PT/OT works well as a team. On the busy OR days, usually Monday to Thursdays, we will have 12-15 post op cases a day. Off shift RNs will come in for extra to help out. Our hard work is well appreciated by the patients and their families.

Enjoyed the environment, working with co-workers, team work, daily work flow was smooth, loved the connection we had with the patients, I learn a great deal of EMR training, scheduling, referrals, ordering testing, lab tests,
not enough schedulers to be successful with meeting patient requests
Scheduler A (Current Employee) – Danbury, CT – September 25, 2017
1. high volume check in/registration of patients 2. I have learned that our patients need us to get better 3. My Manager is very focused on budget statistics 4. My business coordinator brings morale down-she is extremely moody and does play favoritism amongst employees 5. Not being able to accommodate a patient with a timely evaluation based on our clinical schedules 6. My customers that I meet and greet everyday!
What can i say, its a corporation not a caring hospital, at the end of the day they only care about the bottom line and that's money, Managers are a joke with no college experience, basically somebody gave them a power position and they take it to their head thinking they are untouchable, hospital is outsourcing jobs and making the hospital private. employees will screw each other over for positions and favoritism, management will do anything to get rid of employees who they dislike ans that includes making up stories and pressuring people into writing fake claims against employees. overall i am disappointed with this corporations way of handling people, patients and employees,

Working at Danbury Hospital has expanded my knowledge of working in the healthcare field. I am currently in school to become a Nurse and Danbury Hospital has helped me grow into a well rounded C.N.A. My team and Managers are amazing!
Its lovely to work in an environment that cares so much for its patients and clientele. The only thing that occurred at Danbury Hopsital was my internship where I spent 9 months. I currently work and get paid as a personal trainer at Work Out World in West Hartford
