lab technician (Former Employee) – Thornton, CO – January 14, 2016
I don't recommend working here. I did not feel communication was very good. Its like the typical hospital job-understaffed, stressed out co-workers, and forget taking any kind of break. Training was poor at best. The benefits are nothing great, just average, as is the pay compared to other hospitals in the area.
pay scale and benefits average
may not get a lunch break, co workers reluctant to cover for you if needed
full time staff nurse (Former Employee) – ER Denver Co – September 14, 2015
I came in as a nurse traveler from Florida and was immediately hired on as full time charge ER nurse when my contract ended. I gained a tremendous amount of experience. after several years the opportunity for growth came up and I took the new position in upper management at Elms Haven.
Lab Assistant (Phlebotomy technician) (Current Employee) – Thornton, CO – February 2, 2015
All you do is draw blood during the shift hours. There is no benefit, not much pay raise, and dead end job. There is no future at this job and no upgrade in position. The manager does not work with any of the employee to sort out any kind problems or situation that the employee is facing.
The nursing staff is a fantastic support for each other as the units get very busy at times. The work is long and exhausting yet very rewarding. Were it not for me personally going through a divorce I would have not left this place of employment.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – thornton,co – May 15, 2013
I helped out at the front desk and the lab, they were fun and a great learning experience. I learned how to deal with mad or upset people, different places and their locations. Hardest part of the job was when i first started because i didn't know much. i enjoyed the little break we got for dinner and knowing that i was helping people too.
RN (Current Employee) – Thorton, CO – September 25, 2012
The set up for telemetry room is very poor. Workers don't get lunch or even bathroom breaks most of the time. Set up of telemetry room poor, not ergernomic friendly. Management working on problem? Not very job friendly with employees that have a disability.
Laboratory assistant (Current Employee) – Thornton, CO – June 18, 2012
I work in a fast paced environment. I learn something new everyday, usually on the computer or front desk duties. The people I work with are very enjoyable and hardworking. For me, running the front offfice is the hardest part of the job. You can easily get bombarded with a line of patients that all show up at the sametime. Getting out of the laboratory and drawing blood on inpatients is my favorite part of the job.
