Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – October 25, 2017
Very busy but I loved the unit I worked on while I was there I had the absolute best Nurse manager & coworkers, these people became more than friends. Work was always fun because it was always team work. I enjoyed working at Ellis Hospital.
Phlebotomist/ ICU Tech (Current Employee) – Schenectady, NY – September 29, 2017
I have been with Ellis Hospital for over 10 yrs. I have had my ups and downs here but my main concern is for my patients as long as they are taken care of I feel good and the end of my shift. Do unto others is my motto, and I live by it as well
overtime helps when you have bills to pay
Not everyone is on the same page as you when it comes to patient care
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – September 12, 2017
My job at Ellis hospital was in the operating room as an administrative assistant. I learned a lot while there. Was a very enjoyable fast paced environment. The management was very good and they saw my potential and allowed me to take on extra tasks. While there I also learned doing billing and coding and assisted with doing the billing for the extra campuses in addition to my main role.

I've work along side good hearted, hard working nurse. These people are caring and go above and beyound to provide great care for their patient. At times things can be overwhelming but it comes with the territory and the job description to always thinking of way to keep my staff happy and enjoying their work envirotment. Always thininkg of ways to improve patient care. Always use discipline time as a learning coashing time for staff. Always have a open door policy to enhance communication between management and staff.
Nurses Assistant (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – July 20, 2017
This was a great place to work, but I chose to go out on my own after I had my daughter. A typical day would consist of getting a report from the charge nurse, checking on patients, doing vitals, taking them for walks, changing their bed linens.
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – July 13, 2017
The Mental health units are outdated. As a tech it is very rewarding to help the patients. There is a high turnover with Staff leaving the unit short staffed which makes it hard to provide all the groups for the patients
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – April 22, 2017
Ellis doesn't care about patient safety. Poor management , always understaffed. 7-1 patient to nurse ratio at times (days) and with new grads taking unsafe assignments. You will expect to have mostly an assignment of 5 patients if you are lucky, but it is mostly 6 patients in days.
Nurses leave constantly, high staff turn over due to nurses being burn out and ellis doesn't do anything to change this. Management expect you to take this assignments with little to no help and expect you to do more and more not often even offering a hand.
Short breaks, no enough techs, high patient to nurse ratio
Environmental Services (Current Employee) – Schenectady, NY – March 10, 2017
Pleasant place to work and get along with everyone. A typical day at work is very busy and it gets the day going. Meeting new people everyday at work which is also exciting. Ellis takes care of their patients also.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Schenectady, NY – March 5, 2017
