Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – July 21, 2016
I truly love this hospital. However, a typical day at work is very stressful because of how short staffed we are. Every day it seems as if more keeps getting added to the work load due to lack of staff. I have learned a lot, dealt with a lot, and seen a lot. The most important thing Jewish has taught me is time management, and handling my stress. When you're as busy as we are here, you have no time to let your stress get in the way. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE most of my co-workers. Excellent team work between myself, and the people I work closely with. The hardest part of my job is, again, how short staffed we are. I've found myself being the only assistant on a floor with 28 patients before. I somehow always manage to get everything done though. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping patients and interacting with them and my co-workers.

Good place to work, I had a chance to meet with patients on a daily basics and see how they were. Hours were good. I enjoyed working the job. The hardest part of the job. was pushing a 90lb. cart up and down hall ways. During my training it was not so bad. I was trained by 4 different ladies. it wasn't so bad.
Then the reality of you have to go here and there.hit me.

When we get orders from the units. Then we go to the unit and draw the blood and take it back to the lab for testing. Management is good. They praise you when it is needed. My co workers are great. They try there best to help each other.

RN (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – August 10, 2015
Some of the worst staffing you will find, sadly with the sickest population of patients in the city. Management continually says that things will get better, though they never do. Some wonderful people work there, but they continue to dwindle in number as people move onto jobs that are safer for both nurse and patient. Pay is decent with incentives to work extra shifts.
Frequent bonuses pay for working extra shifts, innovative procedures
horrible staffing and working conditions, management detached from patient care
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 19, 2015
I really enjoyed working a Jewish Hospital. The preceptors were excellent teachers. I learned how to scrub in various surgical procedures, but the most challenging part was keeping up with the instrumentation and counts, but I loved it!
Variety of food in the cafeteria, friendly environment
AM Lead Responsibilities (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – August 22, 2015
Work day were most always busy. That you can't always count on stay with one place now a days. Management wasn't supportive of staff. Some of the best team players I had. Lack of support from management.
Only received $1.10 pay increase in 4 years of employment. Not one African American managers or winners of any awards. When you walk down the halls you will only see pictures of caucasian nurses. Management was wonderful on my unit. Most co-workers were professional and fair.
I work with excellent and extremely knowledgable people who are very passionate about their jobs and willing to share their knowledge freely.
RN, data abstractor for Quality Management (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – May 16, 2013
Since I have been in the Quality Management department, i have learned a tremendous amount about MIDAS and continue to learn more about the use of EPIC even though I was a superuser for the program. I ahve become increasingly conversant with the finer points of the CORE values in terms of evaluating when they are being properly documented or vice versa. I really enjoy the work as I can see that is makes a huge difference in the quality of care as well as the cost of the care provided.
its intense, busy, but rewarding. I have learned a lot over the years. I have learned how to be a caring and prudent nurse as well as to have excellent clinical and communication skills, time management skills, as well as delegation skills. I have learned how to prioritize my work for the day so that I can work as efficient as possible to accomplish my patient care assignments for the day.
The hardest part of my job is never having enough staff to perform my job as efficiently as I would like to.
I enjoy taking care of my patients and I enjoy my coworkers.
good paying job
Not enough help. Communication is lacking per management.
