Very difficult work environment with the exception of some very nice staff.
Nursing Associate (Current Employee) – Boardman, OH – June 5, 2017
My employment at Mercy Health started well. Once I began working on my official floor, weeks turned into months and things progressively became more difficult. I did enjoy working with some of my coworkers, it would make my job a little more tolerable. I was left on my floor more times then I can count by myself with sometimes up to 17 patients, and at times with a full floor, on my own. Some nurses would gladly help me, others would tell me they were busy and would come around when I didn't need them anymore.. One thing I disliked a lot was getting pulled (working on another floor) with different staff and most of the time you wouldn't know where materials to work with were.. Every floor is different and has different ways of doing things. The phone you carry with you on the floor (hospital phone) rings constantly not giving you a chance to catch up with your current floor assignment (what you are working on that moment). It is a completely frustrating job to say the least. Maybe it would better working as a Nurse but who knows. I am sure they have their share of frustration.
Nothing else good to say.
