Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Norwood, MA – September 26, 2013
We worked with another therapist one would handle ICU/CCU one take care of the step down floors. Codes were handled by both one person would get ventilator ready the other would bagg till vent was ready. ER was handeled by whomever wasn't busy.The hardest part was losing someone who was young in the ER. The best part was saving someone.
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – Norwood, MA – June 3, 2016
Until recently, I was very happy to go to work everyday for many years. The quality of care in my department was excellent and the doctors and staff really have the best interest of the community at heart. Management has shifted the priority from good patient care to the bottom line, as a result the working atmosphere has become unpleasant. The doctors and hospital staff are lied to on a regular basis and concerns are no longer addressed or heard. With new management this could be a great place to work again, until then I would not consider employment.

Norwood hospital is a great place to grow professionally, over the 5 years I've learned different trades within my department. Behind the scenes there is great team work, great management, and caring workers who take their job very seriously for taking care of others.

Emergency Room Secretary (Current Employee) – Norwood, MA – September 19, 2015
The best part of this job is that every day is a new day. What happened the day before won't happen today. There is a new group of patients and family members to attend to. This job requires organization and focus.

Fun place to work, staff is supportive and a great group. great place to professionally grow and develop your skills. the hardest part of the job was after another company took over and staffing ratios began to suffer.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Norwood, MA – June 18, 2015
A typical day at work was joyable, working closely with the nurses I learned a lot, management was fine, it was very easy working as a team with the co-workers. Sometime we have some good and bad time, we always try to work on our differences. Like I said before every aspect of the job was enjoyable.
decent workday, not stimulate for and IPPE student
IPPE Pharmacy Intern (Former Employee) – Norwood, MA – May 26, 2015
This was VERY long ago for me to even be writing this review (about 4 years ago), but from what I can recall the staff at the time was very laid back and friendly. They were willing to help, but for the most part did not really seem to care if I learned much. This truthfully is really all I could hope for, since I was only a 3rd year pharmacy student at the time; there really wasn't anything I could learn. I had to put in 100 unpaid hours during my fall semester at college, so they were honestly very nice to me and accommodated my presence very well. I have zero complaints about this hospital.
good hospital food, friendly & laid back staff, easy work load
long days, had to complete the exact 100 hours (no shortcuts)
E.D. Behavioral Medicine Section Staff RN (Current Employee) – Norwood, MA – March 7, 2015
Receive report, take care of pts, document document documet, give report and go home. Some of the management is great at telling one when something is not good enough but rarely, if ever, compliments on a job well done. Most of my co-workers are ok to work with. Having too many patients due to skimping on staff When my patients are grateful for the help they're getting.
Food Service Aide/Cashier (Former Employee) – Norwood, MA – March 4, 2015

Phlebotomist/Clerk (Former Employee) – Norwood, MA – May 8, 2014
Not a good place to work, understaffed, unfairness in the workplace with managers. Other professionals seemingly trying to support a dying workplace. No respect for knowledge and longevity,not a place to share ideas that could improve working conditions
