Imaging Department (Former Employee), Elmhurst, IL – April 14, 2013
Pros: a beautiful new facility.
Cons: serious staffing shortages in their beautiful new facility.
EMH was once a great place to work. In recent years, however, their dire financial situation, caused by the poor timing of the new hospital and the economic crash, has led to a continual cycle of staff reductions. The quality of patient care has dropped and patient safety is only something that administration talks about. There is no action on safety – more... concerns if such actions would require any money. This has resulted in an atmosphere of fear for line employees, and an attitude of 'there's the door if you don't like it' from management. The situation may improve in time with the impending merger with Edward Hospital, but most believe it will only get worse before it gets better. – less

Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Elmhurst, IL – April 8, 2013
Pros: gave me an appreciation for the hard work cnas do when i became an rn

Home Health/ Hospice Aid (Current Employee), Elmhurst, IL – February 16, 2013
Pros: teamwork, appreciative patients
Cons: short breaks, short staffing, rude & unappreciative patients
A typical day at work involves me assiting patients as much as possible checking vitals, feeding, showering, assiting with ADLS, getting the patients ready for the nurse/therapist, perineal care, oral and oral care. I learned the key to a happy patient is patience and trust. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing my patients smile and feel good – more... that they were in my care. A patient's thank you, goes along way and i enjoy being there for those in need. – less
RN (Current Employee), Elmhursy – October 19, 2012
Pros: coworkers are great
Cons: management and benefits
I love the people I've met and worked with here. Learned a lot. However, management seems to really lack here in many departments. No raise this year, no bonus for many years. Poor benefits compared to other hospitals.

radiologic technologist (Current Employee), Radiology – July 18, 2012
Love my co workers, that is one reason why I am still with EMHC. Supervisors are cold and non communicative, disappear when they're needed, and have favorites which is so obvious. This opinion is by everyone but we keep quiet because we need our jobs.
They won't hire additional staff due to cost but will complain about overtime. I know of several co-workers who actually punch out and still work!
