Hospital Admission Clerk (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – March 31, 2017
Morton Hospital is understaffed. In the Emergency Room, there seems to always be a wait due to the lack of individuals working. The protocols always seem to be changing without notification. Very unprofessional environment.
Public Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – October 14, 2016
The department has great people, and they all work well together. Hospital management take advantage of the department frequently forcing security to work outside of the job description because of understaffing in the medical departments.
Emergency Department Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Taunton, MA – September 5, 2016
Worked as an ER nurse for over 7 yrs at Morton. When sold to Steward, many changes took place but notably the decrease in supplies snd staff necessary to do work in the department. The morale of the staff was low, short staffed alot of the time with 4 to 6 heavy patients given to one nurse. With these numbers, mistakes could be EASILY made and nurses cant be expected to give the patients the care they deserve. The pay was good, especially those nurses with 10+ yrs experience. Unfortunately, people did not work as a team and that is disheartning as in an ER, you need your coworkers to back you especially in critical situations. Wish I had more positive to say but I just do not.
Pay was excellent for staff level nursing, free parking, good ER doctors
Nursing staff not working as a team, staffing problems, ie not enough licensed or ancillary staff in the ER, too many patients to one nurse, lack of supplies, lack of fairness and respect from management and also coworkers towards each other
The sleep lab is growing in volume and there are opportunities for polysomnographers at Morton! We hope you will consider re-applying. The Hospital is doing great and growing with a new Emergency Department coming this September!
Job Work/Life Balance
I love the people and respect I received at Morton.
LPN-Occasional Workforce, nurse floating (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – December 23, 2014
I have worked in this facility for eight years and loved my job. The people, level of practice, and overall culture are what I loved about it. I actually used to constantly tell management how grateful I was to work here. Unfortunately the Steward group has decided to eliminate LPNs all together.
Medical Assistant/Externship (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – July 8, 2014
Morton Hospital is an award winning hospital. I got the privilege to do my 180 hour of externship at Morton. The staff was willing to help me with anything that I needed. I learned a lot on a typical day you check vitals, help patients get changed into a Johnny. Help the Dr. with any procedures that needs to be preformed on the patients. I enjoyed working with all the patients and their families.
Enjoyed meeting new patients eveyday. Learning new things.
PACU full of kind hearted and fun experienced nurses
Nursing Precptorship (Former Employee) – Taunton, MA – May 28, 2014
I had the honor of being placed in the PACU at Morton Hospital for my Nursing Preceptorship my senior year at Curry College. I had an excellent preceptor who kept me engaged and excited every shift. I would take patients into the pre-op area and complete their paperwork and assessments before they were taken to the OR. I would also have shifts in the acute PACU with patients who have come out of long operation procedures like hip replacements and thorcaic surgeries. I would be in charge of completing their charts, administrating pain medications and communicating with the nursing team. We also had a progressive PACU which served for patients who had come in for endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – April 24, 2014
Morning pick up are busy, Need to keep a fast pace. I learned from some of the best phlebotomists how to become as great as they are. Management has come along way. They are great to work for. My co-workers are fun and pleasant to work with. Hardest part of the job is hearing Dr. tell patients bad news. Most enjoyable part is laughing with my co-workers.
The staff was very professinal and helpful, we worked as a team
Physical Therapist Assistant (Former Employee) – Taunton, MA – March 30, 2014
I worked here for many years started as a rehab aide and working in this field taught me a lot on healthcare. I was exposed to many types of diagnosis and learned medical terminology and treat patients with all types of symptoms from general illnesses, strokes to orthopedic surgeries. This encouraged me to further my education in the health field and the exposure was an educational experience also. I had left this facility not because I didn't like it, I decided to work at other places just to further my career in this field.
Constant educational information by having other disciplinarians teaching.
❸ Staff Nurse - Telemetry (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – February 2, 2014
Working on a face paced telemetry unit. Monitoring cardiac monitors throughout the shift. Working with a lot of positive nurses and great teachers. The hardest part of the job is the turnover rate on the floor, some days you can get 1-2 admissions and 1-2 discharges. The most enjoyable part of the job is hearing patient's praise you and tell you how great of a nurse you are and watching people get better and get discharged from the hospital, that is the most rewarding.
Fast paced environment, with the overall feeling of accomplishment.
Credit and Collections (Former Employee) – 88 Washington Street Taunton, MA 02780 – August 30, 2013
Working for this company gave me tools i did not have when entering position. There were many free training opportunities that I took advantage of. I received valuable information and training to help me get a better job.
Productive place to work and fun with my night shift workers for we all work well together.
RN (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – March 20, 2013
A typical night at work includes, listening to report on our patients and then working in our assigned area of either L&D, postpartum or the nursery. Our night crew is the best out of all 3 shifts for we all work well together. There are not that many of us and we have all learned how to help each other out and work productively together. The skills i have learned include being able to function in all 3 areas of the maternity unit. Ive learned how to circulate when doing c/sections, also i have become more comfortable in computerized order entry and like it very much. Management on the other hand is one of the hardest things i have had to deal with. I find they are not empathetic in regards to safe staffing, planning of inservices which we all need to attend (no one ever plans appropriately for the night shift) they are planned a lot mostly during the day when we are sleeping. The most enjoyable part of my job is being a part of the miracle of birth and seeing the joys and happiness on the faces of all the couples i have taken care of.
the ability to make your own schedule
many times we have no breaks, lack of staff meetings, planning of mandatory meetings without thought of the times they are planned for
EXTERN (Former Employee) – Taunton, MA – January 12, 2013
This job always had new things. I learned how to assist doctors and be ready and able at all times. Management was great. The other MA here were very understanding and great to work with. The hardest part was holding up legs and arms when the pt would go dead weight. The most enjoyable part was helping ppl.
