Transition was taking place in ownership and management changes were rapidly occurring.
Inpatient Mental Health Lead Social Worker (Former Employee) – Monroe, MI – September 30, 2015
I liked working with the patients and the co-workers. We really were in a fast pace environment and teamwork was a must. Communication was improving through team development and collaboration. I left the job due to my husband getting a transfer.
Team of coworkers, relationship with patients, compensation was good
If it hadn't been for to nurses in the ED, Ito would have stayed in the ED.
Registered Nurse in Emergency Department (Former Employee) – Ardmore, OK – June 18, 2015
I worked in the ED for about 6 to 8 months, one of the charge nurses started verbally abusing me in front the patients, the other nurse, then in front of the patients. It has to be bad if your own patient states that she can't speak to you that way. My own patient was mad at my charge nurse for me. I took the charge nurse into a private room and asked her to stop yelling at me in front of my patients, other nurses and the doctors. She said she was trying to make me a better nurse, faster, but I went trough the highest number of patients in the last to months. It didn't add up. After shift talked our manager and she said the charge had her approval and didn't listen. I wrote everything down and took it to HR and they got me out of the Ed. I was neve afraid of an arrest CPR after that experience though.
I found I can stay calm in almost any tragedy.
I understand nurses eating the new ones. They treat them badly
RN/LPN (Former Employee) – Monroe, MI – January 12, 2015
I worked at Mercy as my first job. I was an LPN and a RN there. I loved the hospital, my coworkers, and my job. I worked twelve hour days and nights. I learned my first skills as a nurse here. I met some amazing people. It gave me my baseline for nursing. It was a great place to start and it helped me to master the clinic skills I needed to advance my profession. Nursing has the same hard experiences everywhere....losing patients and seeing them go through difficult things. The best thing about nursing is making a difference.

Small Community Hospital operating in the best interests of people in Monroe County and surrounding areas
Medical Surgical Unit, staff RN (Former Employee) – Monroe, MI – July 25, 2014
Typical small community hospital with welcoming ambience and certain limitations pertinent to smaller healthcare facilities. High potential for a faster burnout. No pay raise in years. Significant reduction in benefits for employees. However, many nice/advanced changes have been initiated to satisfy increased needs of the patients and families.
friendliness of staff, good team work.
frequent changes without thoroughly developed plans resulting in increased work-related stress.

Patient Companion (Current Employee) – Monroe, MI – April 3, 2014
I make sure patients are safe during their stay in the hospital that need an extra set of eyes and hands to care for them. Assist to the bathroom and feeding. Help with communication with the other staff. People that I work with are great at listening and helping each other out to make sure the patients are safe. I love working with people.
RN staff nurse (Current Employee) – Monroe, MI – November 4, 2013
This was an excellent company to work for! A typical day at work was not the usual but fun and team work environment which the best patient care was facilitated. My co-workers were all friendly and the part I enjoyed most was getting along with the co-workers.
no it didn't have a ping pong table, but it was a fun atmosphere to work in meeting new people and helping them with their needs.
Registrar, Patient Access (Former Employee) – Mercy Memorial Hospital Monroe Mi – September 15, 2012
A typical day was always changing, which I didn't mind. I sometime worked in the POB as well as the ED. I loved both places. I leared allot about people and their needs. I learned allot about co-workers and their differences, but managed well with them, I thought. Management can always use improvement with like following thru on written complaints and taking care of things before they get out of hand. I loved my job at the hospital and would honor the opportunity to have it back.
