Relaxing exciting work environment where I never get bored
Transcriptionist (Current Employee) – Olean – February 19, 2018
Love almost everything about my job and workplace, except communication is lacking. Coworkers are easy to work with. Also think there should be more cross training to eliminate the possibility of Bri g phased out
Student Intern (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – January 8, 2018
Intern at the outpatient therapy clinic. Physical and occupational therapist were awesome and everyone got along great. Fast pace which made the day go by quick. Clients and staff happy made the day even better. Only complaint is that the gym is very small for how busy it is and it became congested. Overall would recommend this hospital over Coudersport. Also it seems like a much more advanced hospital than Coudy.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – December 31, 2017
Management was awful mostly because they showed favoritism. If they don’t like you they will try to get you to quit (which I had seen on multiple occasions to numerous employees.) They will blame things on you that you didn’t do. The department I was in had no room for advancement. The rotating schedules are terrible if you have little ones- making daycare not an option. It would be much more reasonable if they had 7-3 workers that only worked that shift, 2-10 workers for only those shifts, etc. I liked the job because I feel like I got to learn a lot. It’s a very stressful job for a pay that you can hardly live on.
Transferring to other departments, Discounts. Using your badge for lunch. Vacation and sick time.
Great place to work if you enjoy fast-pace and people
Patient Access Representative (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – November 9, 2017
My time at OGH was just under a year. I loved my job and the only reason I left was because at the time I was caring for my grandchildren during the day, taking care of my elderly father and then working second shift and I had little time with my husband. Would I go back? Absolutely. I worked in patient access with a great group of people. The job is not for everyone. It's very fast paced. You really have to have patience and compassion for people. There are times you don't get a break, especially in the ER because it is that busy. But you work together and help each other out like a team. I miss my job there and I'm hoping to go back.
Great place to work, good benefits, rewarding
There are times you go without a break but if that's the worst thing it's not all that bad
Patient Transporter (Current Employee) – Olean, NY – October 18, 2017
Olean General Hospital is a good place to work however there is constant lack of staffing which makes the job difficult to complete without waiting for additional hands to help move a patient onto the bed or stretcher. I think with more staffing everyone would be more happy and also help make staff stay because I seen a lot of people leaving there because it is stressful, lack of pay, lack of staffing(help).
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Olean, NY 14760 – September 22, 2017
OGH is not a bad place to work. I've enjoyed working here, and have learned a lot. I work in a fast pace environment and love my coworkers. Everyone works as a team, and helps each other when needed. I highly recommend.
Staff RN (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – August 9, 2017
Worked on second floor. Work pace was impossible. Other nurses were not helpful and actually sabotaged me. Important information was withheld regarding pt conditions, planned procedures and revised diagnoses. Workload of 13 to 15 patients with an LPN including all medications, IVs, personal care, assessments, doctors orders, treatments, preparation for procedures. Horrible!
Mental Health Counselor (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – July 25, 2017
Mental health clinicians are not valued for the work we are capable of performing. Even with a Master's Degree you are not seen as anything more than a warm body. I was frequently taken from my post to fill in for a CNA or given the task of doing bed checks. Routinely, I was asked to perform duties that were beyond my scope of practice (i.e. blood pressure checks, urine collection). We were provided with very little training even though it was promised during the interview. The pay is atrocious and they should be ashamed to even offer what they do. Time off requests are typically denied and the onus of finding someone to fill in is on the employee. If you can't find another clinician to work for you, you can not have time off. There was very little support from management and clinicians are not treated with respect. There is almost no opportunity to use your clinical counseling skills.
Interacting with patients and actually providing mental health treatment
OGH used to be a good place to work then someone hired this despicable CEO who goes out in our small town gets sloppy drunk. This CEO abuses his position and board of directors don't seem to care. He is a bully (when drunk and when sober) and a moral buster.The environment at OGH has completly changed for the worst.
Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Olean, NY – June 22, 2017
great coworkers and room for career advancement. competitive benefit package and retirement plan. worked in 3 departments in ten years each was a building block for the next. They promote from within on regular basis.
90 day training was alot of information to retain for several departments. not really long enough.I would have liked to been assigned to one departmen
Patient Access Representative (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – May 11, 2017
I enjoyed employment very much. Was overwhelming at times and a lot to retain. Very busy and fast paced but patient care is priority. Staff are very friendly and courteous and diligent regarding daily job requirements.
full time benfits good pay
fast paced training should be longer for each department
Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Olean, NY – May 5, 2017
I only worked at Olean General as an Aid for a few months but I did not enjoy it much. The hospital is very understaffed and the staff available are overworked and underpaid. Although the benefits help to make up for it.
