Nice Place to Work
Clinical DTR Intern, Food Service Intern (Former Employee), Norwalk, CTApril 5, 2014
Pros: free sodas, lots to learn from being there
I was lucky enough to be able to intern on both sides of the nutrition department at Norwalk Hospital - both in food service and in clinical. Given that is a 313 bed hospital, I learned quite a lot there. In food service, I learned very quickly how fast paced it is when half the hospital orders lunch at the same time. I enjoyed learning what it was – more... like to work in that kind of a kitchen, and putting the things I learned in school into practice. I got to do purchase orders, inventory, sanitation audits and the head chef and I worked together to release a line of products for sale in the main cafeteria.
On the clinical side of things, I got to see a lot more patient interaction. I learned to read medical charts, and fill out dietary concerns charts. I got lots of practice in writing diagnoses and with interviewing, assessing and educating patients.
Overall, it was a great experience. – less

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Norwalk, CTNovember 21, 2013
The most enjoyable part of my day is making someone happy who is very, very ill. The hardest part of my job when a patient thinks it's the end of the world when they get sutures, but in the room next door the patient is dying of cancer.

A Great Place to Work
ED Tech (Former Employee), Norwalk, CTSeptember 25, 2013
I very much enjoyed working at Norwalk Hospital mainly because:
1) I always felt supported by my fellow co-workers including management
2) mostly everyone at work was quite friendly and fun-loving
3) safety of the environment for patients and employees alike

The hardest part of the job was, well, being in the medical field many can relate, being on – more... our feet all of the time, but that comes with the territory! – less

Great Place to work, but be mindful of Merger with Danbury
Finance/Business (Former Employee), Norwalk CTApril 13, 2013
This is a great place to work, but if you are applying for a non clinIcal position, realize they have recently merged with Danbury Hospital, and the ultimate fate of jobs that are not vital to be on location is still unclear
