Job Work/Life Balance
Amazing Work environment
Emergency Department Nurse, RN, BSN (Former Employee), Rolla, MO – February 2, 2014
Pros: lunch break, teamwork, happy work environment
Cons: low pay
I absolutely loved working at PCRMC. The staff worked as a team and there was always someone there to help you. I learned so much from doctors, charge nurses and all staff. We had a typical patient load of 4 patient, but worked with team nursing to cover other patients. The only reason I left this work place was due to a military move with my husband.
Family Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee), Rolla, MO – July 27, 2013
Pros: managerial support.
Cons: distance from several major medical specialties and/or services
PCRMC offers quality medical care to the rural community surrounding. It is a hospital that is continually growing and adding newer and more modern services.
The rural community offers a differing set of values than the typical suburban community. These values are important to be aware of and offer a wider base of perspective in working with your patients.
The – more... hardest part of the job is having to send patients to specialty services that may be 100 or more miles away which is a significant hardship for some. This provides an opportunity for learning how to work with the patient for their own well-being to learn the value of the care being offered to them even though it may require a substantial effort and resource burden. – less
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Rolla, MO – June 1, 2013
Cons: deducted lunch breaks without relief from duties
A typical day includes providing care for patients in a hospital setting.
The most enjoyable part of the job is taking care of patients.
Unfortunately, PCRMC no longer values their employees which has created a very high turn over rate impacting patient care and customer service. PCRMC allows repeated physician abuse to their nurses and a hostile – more... work environment with a deal with it or leave attitude. – less
LPN-IV/ Surgical Orthopedics (Former Employee), Rolla, MO – September 19, 2012
This has been my favorite job even though the shortest. The hardest part of the job was the shifts available conflicted with my family and I was not able to stay there long. You hit the floor running and didn't stop until your shift was over. Seen various pre and post op patients. Lots of wound care performed. This was the most educational job. I enjoyed – more... the fast paced atmosphere and surgical patients. – less
RN Charge nurse, staff, and resource nurse (Former Employee), Rolla, MO – September 3, 2012
I enjoyed working at PCRMC for quite a while. It can be hectic at times, the shift manager may not always be fair in assignments, breaks, or lunch breaks. Weekday evening shifts are quite difficult since there are many admits/discharges of surgical patients.
