Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – March 8, 2016
I worked in the emrgency department. It was very fast paced. At that time, nurses drew all their own labs, urines and transferrred patients to and from other areas of the hospital. We had a very cohesive staff that supported each other. It was an overall excellent experience.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – March 6, 2016
Jordan Hospital is a great community hospital for those unable to travel into Boston from the South Shore. Newly bought out by Beth Israel I have heard it is making good improvements since I have been there. I was on a medical surgical floor, but because the hospital had to close many floors, we got run off from medical/oncology/respiratory floors. The hardest thing was the nurse to patient ratio. The most enjoyable thing was having a job out of college!
Unit Coordinator/Secretary, Per Diem (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – May 26, 2015
I worked for the Jordan Hospital (now BID Plymouth) as a second job. It was a very challenging job in the Emergency Department with phones ringing, multiple lines at times and other times not at all. I was able to work all shifts and found them all equally rewarding. My co workers had been there for many years, I listened to their advice and asked questions when I did not know the answers. I learned how to deal with angry, upset or people who's lives had just been torn apart. I learned how to multitask in stressful situations.
PAR (ED) Unit Clerk in CCU, ICU, Ob/Gyn and Pedi (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – May 18, 2012
A typical day (depending on what position I held) was always interesting, a learning adventure and engaging with professionals to be sure that all patients were treated with the utmost compassion and care. I had various responsibilities through out my total number years of employment. My responsibilities dealt with transcription of Doctor's orders and ordering the correct tests associated with such, to arranging helicopter transport to Boston area hospitals, gathering demographic & precise insurance information. I dealt with a wide range of personalities and showed favor towards everyone. I only worked with the immediate management within my dept and never had any issues. I was deeply rooted within the Plymouth community (and still am) and appreciate the diverse cultures it offers, I would gladly report that I was very accountable in my role and accepted any task put before me. Jordan is a wonderful family oriented hospital with great potential to become one of the BEST on the South Shore area. (My start and end date was broken in between... I worked there on two diff ocassions)
was a short commute, always interesting, positively challenging
Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – August 10, 2013
A typical day was arriving and getting your assignment for the day. You had to organize things to prepare for your day. I learned a lot of about individual personalities, each one makes a difference on how your day is going to be. Everyone is and individual and should be treated as such. The management was neutral, sometimes receptive and sometimes challenging. My co-workers were fantastic. We worked as a team to get the work completed and care for all the cliental. I can not find the words to describe the hardest part of my job, it was and very enjoyable one. I had the opportunity to teach student Phlebotomists and visiting nurses as well as new employees, This was rewarding for it gave my own self esteem a boost. I enjoyed being a lab assistant, I learned what I opened myself up to learning and that was everything
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – January 21, 2014
very busy, usually understaffed. the moral of the hospital had changed when new management took over in 2008. We were no longer a magnet hospital. Those were the good days, to work with those conditions and regulations was great. However the hospital was in the red.. Budget cuts in every dept. When I first started there I was a new grad. This was new and exciting,.2002.I had great leaders and educators. I worked on a telemetry floor for six years then transferred to the CCC, I trained at Southcoast for my critical care course. Which that was full of so full of information and driven content to learn more.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – January 30, 2015
You help the patients and work as a team and learn about nutrition and medical fields. Management here is pretty well. Co workers for the most part help each other out. Hardest part of the job is hurrying along. But the patients love and appreciate the hard work!
Senior Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – January 17, 2013
Fun co-workers and overall great place to work. Had a excellent supervisor when started but then the new one played people against each other and just made working difficult. Overall great position and really loved position, tryed to be moved to different floor but couldn't so resigned due to not being able to move and also needed to take time off to care for dying mother and upon returning was given the cold shoulder from manager.
Jordan Hospital has been through many growth periods since I started, and I still feel Happy coming in to see the same people,as well as new people,and feel at home. The staff at Jordan is top notch to me.There is a sense of pride, confidence and comraderie which,to me, can only help reach our goals of quality patient care. We are a team
comrarderie amongst co-workers
communication between management and employees could be better
Medical surgical staff r.N. From 7pm to 7am, or 11pm to 7am.
Medical Surgical Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – May 15, 2014
I learned how to perform bladder irrigation, and had so much support in honing my iv insertion skills, and blood transfusion skills, as well as contact precautions, and therapeutic measures utulized to take care of patients with the noro-virus, giving them dignity, and ample fluid replacement and gi care. This position also gave me the ability to increase my experience regarding central line care, and lab draws. I love learning new skills, and the red-haired med-surg nursing supervisor at jorden really had faith in me. As a travel nursing job, I really loved this one.
that it ws the winter of the "noro-virus." (great for nursing skills, ) but an infection control challenge. (i am proud to say we did control that though.)

Physician Systems Analyst, Information Services (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – October 27, 2014
I handled many positions at Jordan Hospital from CPOE, Radiology (PACS/CPACS), interfaces, ambulatory and business systems. My co-workers were wonderful and very helpful. The hardest part of the job some days was traveling to off-site physician offices while trying to maintain the workload on various projects. The best part of the job was being busy.
Patient Care Assistant, PACU (Current Employee) – Plymouth, MA – September 3, 2012
i am currently working in the PACU area of the hospital. we typically have about 30 patients daily. this is a very fast pace area and you have to be able to be orgainized and work as a team. he mst enjoyable part of my job is being able to help the patients. The hardest part of the job would be that there is not enough help and most times we are unable to leave on time....
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MA – August 13, 2014
If they needed a specific test done, I would schedule that or if they were to be sent to a specific place, I would arrange that. The best feeling was setting up discharge papers to send the patient home to their family.
