Old employee: the people i worked with were great, the upper management not so much!
LPN (Former Employee) – Danville, KY – December 21, 2016
You do learn alot, but if you're an LPN you're never good enough and may as well hang your pay up. It's more about pleasing the families rather than taking care of the patient now. Your tenard staff have either all moved to days or went elsewhere leaving new nurses on nights which is beyond scary. Your insurance is a joke because you have to use their facilities or its out of network, when you pay less for your out of network then your in network for an xray. You have a 403b which is rediculous when the stocks drop and you loose thousands of dollars. You work short everytime you walk through the door not to mention the overtime every week. The last 2 years I was there we were in overtime every week. As I said before though, my co-workers were great, but too many chiefs and not enough Indians! Vicki Darnell was a joke, they atleast got rid of her and put Sally back in as things are a little better. They took away longevity checks. They took all but 15,000.00 away for student loans but they want that magnet status for the BSN degrees. Just a few things to think about
Great organization to work for; priding itself in nursing excellence.

Great organization offering flexibility and managerial support. The atmosphere is relaxed with good coworker and physician relationships. I have been able to capitalize on organizational change while implementing strategies to enhance nursing excellence and performance yielding positive patient outcomes.
Cafeteria Assistant (Current Employee) – Danville, KY – November 15, 2015
I had always heard that the hospital was a great place to work at, because of the benefits, or the people, or the environment; and it's true. The employees there are usually upbeat and I've rarely (if at all) had heard a bad thing about the place. Regarding my position in the cafeteria. It's one of the best places to work in food. Simply because of the staff, the benefits, and simply it's a relaxed job. It's a great place for customer service skills, based on the amount of people and the amount of regular faces you see. It's a good place to learn multiple skills, as the job requires you to learn multiple positions from the cafeteria, to stock room, to dish room, to the kitchen. The people I work with are always fun and good workers. The management is easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job sometimes is the amount of people that could come through at one time. The hospital can have 80 patients, or 120 on any day. So, the number of patients usually correlates to the number of visitors, or hospital associates that come through the cafeteria. But, all in all you work in a team and things are always easier with a team. Most of the time it's a very relaxed work environment and the faces that I've come to know is probably the best part of the job.
Great benefits, free lunches, relaxed environment, great people
relaxed environment, patients that think they own the hospital giving everyone a bad time
CAT Scan Technologist (Current Employee) – Danville, KY – May 21, 2015
Excellent pay and benefits. Sufficient staffing in most areas. Great people to work with across all departments. Management does not like to have problem areas pointed out to them. "No one else is complaining, so why are you?"
Good place to get your feet wet and earn experience but not a long-term place to work
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Danville, KY – March 24, 2015
No respect for employee's time off or days off. Average compensation. Toxic work culture and lack of enthusiasm among majority of employees. I thought the best co-workers I had were float pool nurses. Although full-time employees were knowledgeable and experienced. Management was responsive but not proactive in preventing problems or staff shortages. Most rewarding part of the job was that I got to help people everyday.
Reduced/Almost free dinner at night
Lack of respect for employee's time off, toxic work culture
Great place to work other than constant policy changes and being micromanaged.
ICU RN (Current Employee) – Danville, KY – September 18, 2012
I love working at EMRMC. The hospital itself is really clean, nice, and newer. One great thing is that it is easier to get supplies because they do not have to be scanned. I can tell you first hand that scanning supplies does not ensure that supplies are not wasted. Not having to scan them actually saves time and we do not waste them just because they aren't being scanned. I also think its great that they are willing to frequently upgrade our equiptment and supplies. It is easy to make changes by being on the unit based counsel. However, there are several policy changes every week and it's exhausting to deal with. They are always making changes to charting and procedures. It feels like you are being micromanaged because management is always on your back about making changes and since there is always something new, they never praise you for making changes, just on to the next. They really should prioritze so that the most important changes are made. Some things just aren't that big of a deal such as filling out the whiteboard in the patient's room. They will actually check it at the beginning of shift to ensure its done. Sometimes I don't get to it right away but that doesn't mean that I won't do it. But, giving meds and making sure my patient is stable is way more important.
clean, nice equiptment, lots of resources, great benefits
lower wages, low raises, frequent policy changes, lots of stress due to micromanaging
