Registered Nurse in the NICU (Former Employee), Flint, MI – August 1, 2012
I worked all shifts but enjoyed 7am-7pm the best. I was comfortable witb ang assignment and also volunteered to be Charge Nurse frequently. My co workeds were amazing and we always worked as a team to provide the best care possible for our tiny ones. The hardest part of the job was caring for micro preemies on their first day of birth, however, this – more... became easier after caring for them consistently and determining each of fheir inxividual needs.
The most enjoyable part of my job was watching these babies grow and eventually go home. It was easy for me to love these ba ies and to form trusting relationships with their parents because most of them were there every day. Education was vital and I did my best to educate parents on their babies condition and to help them get through difficult and /or unexpected times. – less
Certified Nurses Aide (Current Employee), Flint,MI – April 28, 2012
I work during the day which is very busy. I assist with the care of patients who have had orthopedic surgery, traumatic brain injury(TBI), and strokes. I've learned a lot of physical things about the human body after surgery, a TBI, or a stroke; like how important it is for our patients to get out of bed. Some may think you get better by staying in – more... bed but I've learned that the more our patients move around they seem to feel better. The hardest part of my job is helping transfer patients physically. Using the proper body mechanics is a must. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing a positive progress for each patient. – less
Would not recommend it for long term unless you have a relative that works there.
dietary aide (Former Employee), Hurley Medical Center, Flint Michigan – February 3, 2012
Pros: pay was good, benefits pretty good for a part time position.
Cons: diversity training not applied to everyone, supervisor did not follow protocal
While working there I came across some very, very nice people but found it depended on which department you were in. In my case & the department I was in...diversity was frowned upon. Outsiders were unwelcome. First thing I was asked by my supervisor was who did I know that was able to get me "in". I replied that I did not know anyone I applied to a – more... ad. There was a "lot" of nepotism that took place & obvious favorites who were allowed to get away with things that others were not. She liked to yell & the employees she did not like or favor & belittle them in front of fellow employees. She was like a drill Sargent. She created a lot of anxiety for employees she disliked & would assign them the hardest stations to work at. If she did not like you then you could not satisfy her. I left & have kept in contact with some other employees & she either had driven away or was able to discharge the employees that I first hand witnessed this behavior towards. She was friends with the union reps & complaints against her went largely ignored. She is what I would term & allowed to be a bully boss! – less
