Non stop work flow, always something new and exiting. Learned many great lessons and given life long advice from fellow employees and managers. Most enjoyable part about working i the medical field is you see and expierience different challenges throughout your shift. The hard part is coping with patients and loved ones in a emotional time.

Overall I enjoyed my experience as a intern. What I received from my experience was knowledgeable and I was able to apply what I learned to my skills.
Phlebotomy Clinical Student (Former Employee), Harvey, ILMay 5, 2015
Pros: I loved learning from each phlebotomist that trained me.
Cons: Observing politics in the work place.
I went in to Ingalls Memorial as a student interning under the Phlebotomy Program of Moraine Valley Community College.

My day started cleaning my lab unit before seeing patients and stocking my area. – more...
I learned so much as a student in how to prefect my skill by observing other phlebotomist. Everyone was nice and very helpful.
My skills improved each day I received a patient.
Venipuncture and butterfly system was the only system I used.
Management gave me things to do when there was down time. I observed their computer system (Soft Lab) by watching staff checking and receiving specimens from out-patient/in-patient in central processing.
I inoculated 5 blood cultures before sending them to microbiology.
I was not allowed to perform venipuncture on any patient that was 18 years or under, but I did observed children from 2 weeks to 18 years old.
I believe the hardest part of the job, but I found most challenging, was locating hard to find veins. I did miss but was able to redirect successfully. I enjoyed the patients and pleasing them when they realized I didn't hurt them when inserting needle. I have the soft touch. – less

Very heavy workload with little to no team work
Nurse Aide (Former Employee), Harvey, ILMarch 8, 2015
Pros: pay rate was excellent!
Cons: staffing is horrible
Some units are managed better than others and are actually fun. My particular unit was one of the worst. Ingalls as a whole isn't a bad place to work it would be a lot better if the management was more considerate when it comes to staffing on my unit standard ratio became 1:16 for CNA where nurses were capped at 6 patients. I understand we have different roles but that ratio is unreasonable.

Behavioral Health Nurse (Current Employee), Harvey, ILFebruary 1, 2015
Cons: the entire work place
Unsure what unit you would work on a daily basis. Poor continuity of care. manage the computer and the med system. What I did learn more of is to set a faster pace to my work. As far as health care is – more... concerned it was very difficult work trying to get the patients to participation.My coworkers varied in the investment of the care being delivered to the patient. The hardest part of the job was motivating my peers much less the patients. Group therapy was not a common thing to do with the patients.The management would only be concerned about the amount of patients we had nor the staffing according to the patient acuity. – less

Surgical Technician (Former Employee), Harvey, ILSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: i was able to become a private scrub for one of my favorite specialties.
Cons: on call being newly divorced single mom.
I absolutely loved working in surgery at Ingalls Memorial Hospital! They worked hard to give you time off or the ability to switch shifts if need be for doctor appointments for my child. I also appreciated the surgeons would teach you as they went along in some of the more rare cases. They made you feel like an important part of the team.
