Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD – May 12, 2013
Learned a lot from the nurses and physicians. Lots of hands-on opportunities to practice skills and become competent. Enjoyed working with different types of patients and being a part of their post-op recovery.
I think this place was created by very hostile work environment!!! They should be train first their managers and also their HR department employees.Please, stay away from this place, NOT good place to work...
Pros: working with my co-workers, physicians were pleasent to work with
Cons: i wanted to learn more of the office duties to fill in when the office was short handed
A typical day at work was fast paced. I learned quite a bit from the healthcare field. Everyone from my manager to physicians to co-workers were pleasent to work with. The hardest part of my job for me was that I wanted to be more knowledgeable about various aspects of the office and much of the office duties were not part of my job description. I enjoyed – more... being a file clerk, working to provide excellent patient care and meeting the patients. – less

RN Gilchrist Hospice (Former Employee), Towson – January 19, 2013
Pros: pay is good
Cons: no recognition for your hard work except from patients themselves
Home care hospice. Very stressful job, maximum nursing caseload is 11.5? Ok 1/2 a person, whatever anyway we are consistently running at 15-18 patients working 9-11 hours daily forget a lunch break there isnt any time! Management very focused on "productivity" how many patients you see in a week versus how much time you spend with patients face to face, – more... in return a lot of disatisfaction from patients and families that they are being rushed and not getting the support they need. Hospice aides STAY AWAY, honestly they are severely overworked, only get paid hourly and are costantly being shorted on their paychecks. Little to no recognition. No raises this year from Gilchrist nor GBMC. No way to get your complaints taken care of it seems everything is brushed under the carpet same management team for years who feel they are "untouchable". No use to complain. Unfair practices regarding holiday time or time off. Too many "favorites" with certain managers and "black sheep" that always seem to get more work put on them. I could go on and on. – less
worked two different positions at GBMC very busy in both depatments

Nothing was exciting for me... Rude management+HR department. They do not care about your effort/skills or your rights.I had surgery and I used my "sick leave", but I'm fired the reason for "no show to work for more than 3 days"...Although, Before,my sick leave and after my surgery I was submitted all required paper works......Still, they fired me for – more... unfair reason. – less
RN (Former Employee), Towson, Baltimore – December 16, 2012
Pros: i do not think anything considerable as a pros at this place.
Honestly, I won't go back to work at this place any more and would not recommend to anyone.I have many years experience in health care settings as an RN, but I never ever seen that much worst hospital for work. First of all, they have no idea about the management and fair-treatment!!! If you may have any issue with management they will put you on fair – more... treatment program(actually, this is just the game); which mean in is; un-fair program. HR department and managers share this program, at the end still you will be guilty.. – less
Working in the Operating Room was just the Nightmare.

home care RN (Former Employee), Gilchrist Hospice Care – September 17, 2012
Pros: great co workes
Cons: horrible upper management
Home Care RN for Gilchrist Hospice Care. Hostile enviorment to work for. Upper management are the MEANEST group of women I have ever met in my life. Co workers are fantastic. You can feel the tension from all co workers. All over worked and treated with disrespect. Turnover rate of RN's 50%. Pay is above any place else I have ever worked. Still cannot – more... keep RN's. Would not recommend working there or for that matter using their services for a Hospice patient. Upper management's only concern is about money. Where they can cut cost even if it effects patient care. Basically,they don't care. – less
The people are very friendly you learn alot about people and the way they are. my coworkers were great the hardest part was getting along with management who could not even do your job but they were your supervisors. Management is terrible!!!!!!!!!
