Medical Intensive Care Unit- Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 29, 2016
This was my first experience as a nurse. I was grateful to have the opportunity to start off my career in ICU as a new grad. I've learned a lot and was given the opportunity to be mentor to become the nurse that I am today.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Margate, FL – July 12, 2016
this company is awful and after years of working for them they toss you out on your butt. they should not be allowed to treat anyone this way but they do and now since I do not work for them they have ruined my life no one will hire me at all. do not work for them I am not the only one that has had their life ruined.
PRN (Weekend) Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Bentonville, AR – March 28, 2016
Great place to work! Northwest Medical Center is a very good place to work. I always feel I have the support of upper management. It is my first "not for profit" position. I like the fact they do things that fits the needs of the community regardless of the income potential.
My experience at Northwest medical Center was great since I had unlimited hands-on experience under the supervision of a Registered Nurse. I know this experience had prepared me for the real hospital job as a nurse. The care that was provided to the patients were excellent. For this reason, I understand that nursing is caring.
It's a 'get your experience, then leave' kind if place
staff (Former Employee) – Margate, FL – December 3, 2015
Low pay to start. Not at all competitive salary-wise. Benefits keep constantly changing for the worse every time you turn around. Staff stretched to the max (and then some) which of course compromises quality of patient care. Follow the title of this summary if you can't get hired anywhere else.
A typical day at work would be very fast paced and room to catch up on other work duties due to the great team work offered. I learned to manage my time and management was always there to help with any concerns. The hardest part of the job was running from room to room to provide the patients with medications while handling other business matters, but other than that I really enjoyed the celebration of birthdays and holidays etc.
Medical Assistant/Registrar (Former Employee) – Springdale, AR – November 30, 2015
The management was never willing to help me grow professionally. I wanted more of a challenge and more responsibilities. The management were micro management so I didn't feel like any project was mine.
Was not happy that they would not help me after my injury
certified nursing assistant (Former Employee) – Albany, MO – November 16, 2015
I was injured on the job and was dropped so fast from the hospital. I was unable to lift over 10 pounds and instead of moving me to a different position they just let me go even though there was a position available that I had experience in
My biggest problem at my current job is the high nurse patient ratio: for Telemetry 7:1. I believe that overwhelmed nurses are not able to provide the care that the patients deserve. The poor management support results in high staff turnover. In addition the benefits are progressively declining while the work related stress is increasing. The best part of my job is making a difference for my patients and working with committed and dependable professionals. I enjoy my co-workers. The rigid and demanding work environment has created a trustworthy and reliable team that supports and helps everyone in need.
Lack of management support, Poor Health Benefits, Inadequate career opportunities.
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 18, 2015
Worked in the hospital for 3 years, loved the staff, environment, and management. Transferring departments was biggest mistake I could have made. Management was un-supportive, unfairly demanding, and micromanaged. I became unhappy at work, dreaded coming in, tried to transfer departments was unsuccessful even though other departments were extremely short handed.
RN, Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 18, 2015
Cardiovascular intensive care unit that manages patients pre- and post-open heart, thoracic, and vascular surgeries. Collaborative health management with multiple disciplines (physicians, nursing staff, case managers, nutritionist, physical and occupational therapists, and pharmacists). Great personnel with an excellent team-work ethic.
Chief Nursing Officer - LPNT Hospitals (Former Employee) – Winfield, AL – July 26, 2015
My tenure at NMC enabled me to grow progressively through various clinical and leadership roles. The medical staff is outstanding and a small town should be very thankful to have a high quality group of physicians providing services to the areas in which the hospital serves.
