Registered Nurse, Cardiac Cath Lab (Current Employee) – Arlington Heights, IL – March 19, 2017
Educational advancement supported. Ability for advancement for motivated individuals. On call schedule flexible. No ability to take time off between Christmas Eve and New Years Day. Over all I have enjoyed my time in the Cath Lab at NCH.
It was a ordinary work day. As we were making our rounds during a shift change, as my coworker and I entered one of the patients room, we noticed the patient was in unresponsive. We than proceed to revive the patient by doing compressions. All while alarming his room and signaling a "Code Blue". A large amount of the work team than ran into the room to assist with saving the patients life. The staff all took a role as we proceeded to save the patient. We did not give up no matter how much time had passed by. With team work, hard work, and dedication, we as a team helped to save the patients life.
Sterile Processing Technician (Former Employee) – Arlington Heights, IL – January 24, 2017
If you don't want to work in a area where there is drama and smack talking, then do not apply here. People are nosy and racist. If you do something, they blame you for it. It really isn't fair. The OR are jerks too. If you mess up, they will come and yell at you and not care how you feel. They will write you up for the most stupidest thing ever and i guess they jut like to get you in trouble.

Patient Transporter (Former Employee) – Arlington Heights, IL – November 10, 2016
Transporting patients to and from units within the hospital. I learned how to be humble by caring for patients that were sick. Management had difficulty providing a set schedule for employees and would often rotate employees between all three shifts. This made it difficult to balance work and family. My co-workers and I worked as a team, especially when patient load increased. The hardest part of the job was seeing people suffer that were not going to get better. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and talking with my patients!
