I enjoy meeting new people.It's very interesting meeting a melting pot of races and cultures which make you a better understanding of people. The hardest part of the job is to make sure each patients needs are met. The most rewarding part of the job is to see patients progress thru their journey.

Managment of Therapeutic schedules and treatments.
Program Access Specialist (Former Employee) – Oakbrook Terrace, IL – October 22, 2014
A typical work day includes managing patient schedules, assisting in physician inquiries about patients, triaging patient concerns and questions, and providing administrative support to senior leaders. I learned to effectively manage tasks and a high level of pace in an office. Also I have to be very detail oriented and have a high level of accuracy when assisting patients. Working as a team, including physicians, therapists, registered nurses and other administrative staff allowed me to understand and effectively support all disciplines when needed. The hardest part of my job was to not always assume the same level of expectations that I have for myself. I always am striving for success and a high level of accuracy. The most enjoyable part of my job was to work with all types of people whether it is patients, staff, vendors, or sales professionals. I enjoy being around people and the positive interaction between makes an enjoyable workplace.
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Wheaton, IL – September 3, 2014
I worked as an Agency Therapist for a little less than 4 months. I had the pleasure of getting to know the staff in all Departments. I usually critique a hospital or facility on it's "Stress Level" & on my Defibrillator scale, the stress level is pretty 'Flat Lined'. There were days where it was a "Run Forest Run" day, but overall, it was a steady pace and easy going. The staff were friendly, helpful & welcoming. The cafeteria has the BEST SOUP in Illinois. My advice to a potential candidate; 1.) Always bring your "A" game to the job. 2.) Don't engage in negative gossip or cliques 3.) Do not mistake your manager as your "Best Friend", they have a job to do, just like you, so don't get upset if your personal issues are not getting priority with your manager. 4.) Be accountable. Things happen, especially in our personal lives. Most times, this is not a surprise to you. 5.) Do your research; Benefits, Absentee Policy, Tardiness, Growth potential, etc. Things that could affect you, later down the line. 6.) If you have an issue with another staff member, manager, etc., the WORST thing you can do is discuss it with everyone. Marianjoy's staff, to me, was like family. And what happens when you talk negatively about a family member? It comes back to you and not in a good way. That being said, I truly enjoyed my time at Marianjoy.
the soup, friendly staff, overall atmosphere
limited job hiring if agency, mngmt can be a little too 'stiff', staff seems to fear job loss if they verbalize an issue.
Beautiful workplace with friendly and knowledgable staff. Maintains excellence in quality of patient care.
Staff nurse (Former Employee) – Wheaton, IL – June 23, 2013
I worked at Marianjoy as an RN student under the supervision and tutilage of an RN preceptor. As a student I was not employed, but did work two shifts per week. The nurses there are professional in their conversation and conduct. They are very knowledgable regarding disease processes, specific patient populations, needs of the patients and their families for rehabilitation and teaching. I learned a great deal about the rehabilitation process for patients with hip and knee replacement and those with brain injury. The interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists and social workers worked in close conjunction with patient and family to bring about the best possible outcome for each patient. It was very rewarding to be part of this process.
A typical day involves first receiving report, meeting patients, giving report to CNAs and coordinating care for the shift, gathering medications. The nurses daily assist patients as needed with activities of daily living, pass medications, perform ordered dressing changes and other therapies, assess patient and family learning needs and address these, follow nursing care plan and amend as necessary, assess for problems and progress toward rehabilitation goals. Interactions with patients and their families, nursing staff and CNAs, physicians, physical and occupational therapists regarding patient needs, problems and progress occur on an ongoing basis.
facility has a well formulated philosophy that is followed. staff are knowledgable, friendly, and professional.
staffing can change based on patient population by nursing director as shift is beginning, at times creating some confusion and adjustment.
