Nightmare
Registered nurse (Former Employee), Lock Haven hospitalJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: paid good
Cons: aweful benefits, no breaks, terrible management, short staffed
The only good thing about this hospital was that it paid decently. We were always short staffed. Management heard about problems but never fixed them. They had no loyalty to the staff whatsoever. Be strictly professional with your co-workers, and keep to yourself as much as possible. Rarely did you leave on time, I was constantly at least an hour late – more... leaving. – less

My experience at Lock Haven
Admitting Clerk (Former Employee), Lock Haven, PAJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: not as hectic as big cities
Cons: training needs to be standardized/ they should implement patient access modules
Lock Haven Hospital was a real experience for me. I worked in the Emergency department and a typical day there can be stressful and tiring. The system that we operated by was rather unorganized and inefficient. I training that I received was sub-par and as a result sub-par work was the product. I received my first first 90 probationary meeting and got – more... a bad result which was expected; however I made advances and changes that were to the best of my ability with the 30 day extension given and that was still not enough for the newly hired PAD who was new to the facility himself. So as a result I was terminated. Nevertheless Lock Haven Hospital showed me a lot about handling myself in a "professional" environment and remaining calm under stressful situations. The co-workers overall were tolerable, just DONT share your personal life, no matter how friendly and welcoming they seem. The job is seemingly hard in the beginning but once you get adjusted you'll be fine, the key things are to remember protocol,procedures, communicating properly with your superiors, document EVERYTHING and remember to be remain professional no matter how ornery and insolent patients and even staff can become.

Challenged rural hospital.
Chief Executive Officer (Former Employee), Lock Haven, PAJuly 9, 2012
Pros: strong community involvement
Small community based hospital with acute care and long-term skilled beds. Facility has been financially challenged but a turnaround was realized through a sound medical staff and service development plan.

Housekeeping and Laundry (Former Employee), Lock Haven, PAJune 24, 2012
Pros: being with the patients
Cons: poor management
During the day I cleaned various parts of the hospital and patient rooms. I also did the laundry for the hospital. The most enjoyable part of the job is being with the patients.
