Great company but could do a lot more to improve management to help organization
nurse aide (Current Employee) – Ohio – January 4, 2016
Biggest issue, constantly being understaffed and taking care of 21 to 23 patients at a time all while dealing with drama filled Co workers who don't like to help as a team. And if you report to management they are just two faced or never resolve the issue. Fail to see if we were fully staffed the paying patients could receive the care and time they deserve but they are too worried about money. We had a "communication meeting" but that was it. Still drama. Maybe it's just my facilitiy but I've never worked at a place compared to this.
Seeing the patients happy, knowing you did something to make their day better
Great opportunity for training and development. Staff was extremely helpful and the culture was that of a typical teaching hospital. A little behind the times as far as infrastructure and technology to support staff.
Case Manager/Care Coordinator (Current Employee) – Kettering, OH – July 29, 2015
I began my nursing career in a cardiac ICU recovering open heart patients. I enjoyed the autonomy and fullfillment of being able to work with patients during such a critical time in their life. It was an amazing experience and opened the door for me to begin another avenue of nursing.
R.N. (Former Employee) – Kettering, OH – July 12, 2012
Very fast paced and busy. I learned to be organized. Learned alot about different pt. diagnosis. I worked as a team member. I helped other co-workers. The hardest part of the job was working short handed. I enjoyed working with my co-workers.
After walking onto the Central Processing floor I would ask my team leader what they needed to have me do and do it. We had busy Operating Rooms so we were always running. I learned so much. I got certified while working there in Central Processing. Working at KMCN taught me so much. The people that I worked with became my family and not just my friends. The management had an open door policy and would work with us not just manage us. I always thought that was cool. There really wasn't a hard part of the job we worked together as a team so well that when anything difficult arose we got it done. To this day I miss my job that I had there and I miss my family.
Time management (Former Employee) – Kettering, OH – April 21, 2012
A typical day was prepping for work,getting assignments thru the epic system,once you get that done I would begin cleaning to the best of my ability in a timely fashion finish go back to computer do it all over again etc. I learned to be compassionate,understanding,and displaying customer service in an area that was different to me.I had excellent co-workers whom were team players,wonderful management also.The hardest part was when you see a family greiving from a death.The most enjoyable part was being able to cheer some up,pray with them and they really appreciate it.
Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Kettering, OH – May 3, 2012
working the second and third shift, my day was filled with emergency patient admits and seeing alot of surgery patients come in and out. I learned alot about medicines and illnesses and surgeries. I loved my co-workers and other employees throughout the hospital. Being on the late shift, we didn't have to deal with management too much! The hardest part of the job was when man patients arrive and many patients leave at the same times. The most enjoyable part of the job was is seeing a very sick patient get well and be able to go home after a lengthy visit
Environmental Service Worker (Former Employee) – Kettering, OH – March 24, 2015
The position itself was okay. It was cleaning rooms. But, when my pager would go off and I didn't call to see what room needed done right away, I was yelled at. I finally couldn't take getting yelled at all the time. I would never recommend this job to anyone.
Great place to learn how to perform more advanced MRI exams.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologist (Former Employee) – Kettering, OH – October 31, 2012
The work load was difficult at times because of the continued adding on of both in and out patients. Sometimes there wasn't a feeling of accomplishment beacuse no matter how many patients you started with at the begining of your shift, there were more patients on the schedule by the end of your shift. Sometimes you would receive a bonus check from the company. The hardest part of the job was trying to put patients in limited slots. The most enjoyable part of the job were the people I worked with.
matching funds and bonus checks
short lunches and being called in for non-emergency exams.
what i learned about kettering medical is there is a lot of talk about doing the right thing and having integrity...but when it comes down to it , they are more concerned with politics than doing right by the patients. favorites are played all the time.
it is great until you rock the boat. then watch out.
you will be black balled, and never given another chance.
I loved working for Kettering Medical center, it's great place to work at. Most days or evening are busying helping people in times of crisis. Most employees work as a team and it's a great team to work with.
