Radiology (Current Employee) – Radiology – April 7, 2016
The hospital has not given raises to its radiology employees in over 6 years. Upper management told the radiology staff that they would never get raises in the future despite the fact that the radiology department brings in the most money for the hospital. They are paying experienced and licensed employees well below what they deserve compared to other local facilities. They don't do any retirement matching. Upper management is not open to conversations about advancement and growth. Upper management has openly admitted that this hospital is just a place for new employees to get experience before moving onto another job. They are not willing to make changes or take suggestions to keep their employees happy.
Patient Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – New London, NH – December 28, 2015
Nice and small hospital however we had 2 computer systems to go through to check all of the patients in. They were very grumpy and hard to deal with. I found that their were too many "team leads" and supervisors who did nothing on certain issues. Bad toxic environment. Most of the co-workers were very nice to work with.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – John Stark Highway, Newport NH – September 29, 2015
We had 8 different doctors at the Health Center so we saw all age groups. We were all cross trained to work with each doctor in case someone was out sick. So each day could be different. The employees were a team and worked as a team. Great relationships were made. It was like working with your family. I was able to use all my training and skills. We drew blood, gave immunizations and injections. We performed lab testing and EKG's. I cannot think of one negative aspect of the time I spent working at this facility with those great people.
Everything, great people, great doctors, great management
When one our co-workers passed away. When I moved to another state
Good stuff cohesion and team work.Fast paced work days and long hours.
Staff RN (Former Employee) – New London, NH – August 3, 2015
Provision of basic nursing by primary nurse in am e.g. nursing rounds, med pass assessments,preparation of patients for procedures,meals, personal hygiene in coordination with nurse assistants,families and other departments. Daily MD rounds some of which required a nurse's presence. A typical day always had an agent patient situation with an occasional emergency that requires the primary nurse's attention. Management involvement in typical situations coordination of care, staff support and problems solving was helpful. Supervision of subordinate staff in patient care sometimes consumed most of the time which is in short supply. The most enjoyable part of the was appreciation of staff by both patients,family and management,successful resolution of problems of the day e.g. recovery and stabilization of patient status that needed urgent care.Working with good nurses and LNAs. Hardest part of the day was death of the loved one or supporting family members in critical situations.
Bonus for extra shifts and involvement of stuff in scheduling work days
Limited time for lunches, long hours due to high workload in case of high patient acuity.
Volunteer and Auxiliary Services Manager (Former Employee) – New London, NH – November 10, 2014
I found both the volunteer and hospital staff to be dedicated, caring individuals who genuinely wanted to help their patients (and the residents) experience the best in healthcare.
The hospital was a great place to work with learning opportunities at every turn. They were supportive of employees empowering themselves and dedicated in allowing us to provide the best care possible.
professional yet friendly atmosphere, supportive management
Lead Cook / Sous Chef (Former Employee) – New London, NH – October 18, 2014
Be careful kitchen is full of nepotism and inappropriate behavior. Worked many years giving up holidays and personal time. Management doesn't care no breaks etc. I gave 14 years w/solid reviews till the last year. I no longer fit with the family's and their behaviors.
Community Outreach Health Education Intern (Former Employee) – New London, NH – October 15, 2013
Doing my internship at NLH was a great experience for me. I was exposed to varies aspects of healthcare and interacted with the staff on a regular. It took a lot of time and hard work, but in the end, I produced great results.
Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee) – New London, NH – September 10, 2013
Fun atmosphere, great people! It is a very laid back atmosphere . The hardest part is having a difficult patient. Some time there is a lack of communication both between patients and coworkers. The software is easy to use, however they use multiple systems that make things slower both for staff and patients.
Multiple layers of administration for such a small institution. Good collegial place to work.
Clinical Case Manager (Current Employee) – New London, NH – July 11, 2013
Little opportunity for advancement in Case Management. The most difficult portion of my role is making both the insurer, physicians, clients and families happy and satisfied with plan of care and timing of discharge within necessary constraints. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with, the proximity to my hometown and the support for ones' family life.
