Worked here several years and found the co workers to be on a 5th grade maturity level. Management was inconsistent with policies and showed constant favoritism. Pay was not competitive and schedule constantly short with RNS on mandatory overtime. No educational support. Leadership lazy. Wouldn't go back if it was double salary. Wouldn't take my family there either. Can't believe I stayed as long as I did.
while working at kershaw health I found it to be a fair and stable work place. they are willing to take the time to train you in whatever areas you may need work on. the pay is average and health insurance is great
There was absolutely no new hire orientation/ training once I got to the OR. There was absolutely no guidance, especially for a brand new graduate, I learned what type of employer I do not want to work for.
Not enough Nursing staff so meal breaks usually do not happen. Management talks but does not deliver. Constant staff turnover and low morale in several departments. Computer system needs work, not user friendly.
Kershaw Health allowed me the opportuntity to learn how to register patients in and EHR computerized software system. I also learned quite a bit about various lab test, ICD-9 codes, and various lab test that were conducted.
I still work there for now. The new director over environmental services is horrible to work for! Always changing the schedule and does not ask or talk to you about the change. The worst boss I have ever had when you ask a question or make a statement all she does is yell or talks down to you as if you are beneath her.
The relationship between the coders and the nursing/CDI staff is wonderful. I enjoy rounding with the physicians. This is my second time working for Kershaw Health. The first was in 1982 when I completed LPN school and again in 2008. I wanted to come back "home" so to speak.

I really enjoyed my time at Kersahaw Health. Everyone was great and I couldn't have asked for better coworkers. Every day was almost like an adventure when you came in. With work you knew what your were getting but with the coworkers anything could happen and usually did.
Must not be too horrible because I still work there. People that work there are great but upper management determines how much staff we need and it is never enough. Never get to take a break and have to rush through lunch because work is always behind.
You go in knowing there's work to do. I don't mind hard work and keeping busy. Everyone isn't there to work. Just to do enough to get by. That put more pressure on the real workers. You try and explain things to the higher ups and they lable you as a complainer. Every weekend Iwould get to work with the new hired CNA's. I tried to get them to have 1 with experience and one learning but they never would change it. I had 44 patients and 2 CNA"S working with me. It wasn't always bad. When you got one sick or going bad or just demanding you need back up. When the floor was restricted due to flu or virus, we weren't given extra help. I made who you were working with more important. I loved talking to the patients during care but I hated not having the time to spend with them. I worked in long term care. For 24 years I have seen so much improvement in care and how sickness is treated. I have also seen how doctors, nurses and the public have lost respect toward each other.
i worked with alot of people who gave heart felt care.
Working in this small community health care facility has been a enjoyable experience both personally and professionally. I have over the last three years of employment added many skills that have benefited my life both professionally and personally.
a more traditional, 8:00 to 4:30, five days a week work schedule.
less time off during the week to pursue prn work which would enhance my fianancial status.
