Staff RN (Current Employee), Kansas City, KSMarch 9, 2014
Pros: positive atmosphere, good moral, friendly staff
Cons: benefits & pay only ok
Love working here! Down to earth staff from the Docs to the janitorial staff! Corporate ownership has not ruined the small hospital feel...yet! Good patient/staff ratio. Very low staff turn over.

Loved working there!
Staff Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Everett, WAJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: learning everyday
Cons: no afternoon breaks
There wasn't a typical day on the L&D unit. That's what made it so exciting! Managed labor patients to delivery, took care of the the newborns, scrubbed c-sections and post postpartum procedures.
Hardest part was not being able to continue there after a patient kicked me by accident and broke my shoulder.
I still keep in touch with my L&D buddies!

A nice place to work with great doctors and co-workers.
Certified Surgical Technologist (Former Employee), Waco, Tx.August 7, 2013
Pros: great people.
Cons: i didn't get to continue working there after my surgery.
It was my first job as a Certified Surgical Technologist. I went to work there the week after graduation. The staff all helped me as I was getting acclimated. About 6 months into my job I started having back problems and had to have surgery. I worked for 2 1/2 years in pain until I couldn't stand it any more. I'm great now as long as I can move around. – more... It was a great place to work. – less

Houskeeping Aide (Current Employee), Wayne, NEJune 23, 2013
Pros: freindly staff, good insurance benifits
Cons: short breaks, no overtime
I go into work and make my cart my day starts off pretty steady and normal. in the afternoon is usually when things become unpredictable and more fast paced. my job as a housekeeper is fun and the supervisor is awesome. The most important part of my job is to insure that the patients have a clean room and living area during there stay in the hospital. – more... i also clean the or and that is a very meticulous and detailed part of my job i have to make sure everything is clean and disinfected. i love my job as a housekeeper everybody is personable and very kind, if someone is not smiling i make sure to put a smile on their face.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee), North Plainfield, NJApril 30, 2013
Pros: good work environment
Cons: no health benefits
A typical day at work would start off by me communicaticating with the doctor and seeing what my first priorities were.I would check and schedule appts, prep patients and exam rooms for the doctor to see and assist an any way needed. Calling patients, interpreting for spanish speaking patients, day to day my duties would change being a medical assistant.From – more... doing EKG,s, taking urine specimens, pregnancy tests, checking glucose, blood presure, checking and verifying insurance coverage, just to name a few. – less

Helping Patients with financial challenges
Interim Credit and Collections Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, KSApril 13, 2013
Pros: caring environment for patient's
Cons: advancement potential limited, micro-managing, business office jobs outsourced
PMC's mission was to assist and care for everyone regardless of there ability to pay. My position was rewarding when I could assist that patient who worried about a bill instead of there overall health.

Nice employees, poor management
Nurse (Current Employee), Kansas City, KSApril 5, 2013
Pros: mosdtly nice employees
Cons: good employees either quit or get laid off, high patient care ratio
Lay offs every couple of years.. New company is out for profit not patient care or employees. This place has never had a good reputation and there's a reason. Always a high turnover. Seniority isn't a factor for lay offs. Call lights go unanswered while everyone gossips at the desk despite their No Pass Zone. Good luck getting pain medication during – more... the hour long shift report. Patient/nurse ratio high and I hear it's that way in the allied health areas too. – less

Great place to work as the entire Rehab team work as one
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Everett, WAMarch 16, 2013
Pros: unity of the rehab team
Cons: short breaks, if any at all and usually i do not take a lunch break
Originally, our Rehab unit was managed by Providence, and although I am still a Providence employee, we have an outside company Rehabcare managing our unit, which has been for 2-3 years now. We are a 19 bed acute facility and usually get at least 2-3 admissions per day. We have a pyxis for medication administration and in the last year, we have the – more... EPIC computer program for documentations, previously we had McKesson. I love my co-workers as I mentioned above, we all work together which makes the job even more enjoyable. That doesn't go without saying as in any job, it has its moments. Being Charge and having a caseload of 4-5 patients, having to assist float nurses who aren't familiar with Rehab, staffing for the next shift and dealing with any unexpected issues, can create an extremely busy day. My manager is wonderful, and is currently managing our floor and another unit as well. She is very approachable and accomodating to all of us. – less

Unhappy Nurses
Charge Nurse (Former Employee), Kansas City, KSFebruary 27, 2013
Pros: can't recall
Cons: everyday working a different unit as a new grad
Taking care of acute pts on the cardiac floor. Passing meds, assesments, pre-op, teaching. I learned a lot about the medications used for the heart. Management overall I hope she was great, however my experience was sad. My husband passed away and I admit I was having a hard time but it did not interfer with the care of my pts and she only mad things – more... harder for me, very rude. Out of 15 nurses a day on the same unit there were only two or three you could ask for help. They knew and did their job well but would not share the information to help you as a new grad. Very unhappy never greet you with a smile. The hardest part was learning the graphs and the enjoyable part was taking care of the pt after surgery. – less

Cons: i can't think of any
The management was approachable, encouraged advancement. The pay was outstanding as where the benefits. My co-workers, I really couldn't ask for better. I worked there many year's and I can't say any other place I've worked since then is comparable. I would work at Providence again in a heart beat.

Critical drips, intubation assist (Former Employee), 8929 Parallel ParkwayFebruary 22, 2013
Pros: great coworkers
PMC emergency room was my first nursing job. Absolutely loved the ER. It was great foundation to my career. Helped my truly understand the what nursing is all about. Management was fine. Hardest thing about the job was being a new grad in the ER developing skills. Best thing about PMC was reward of my experience.

Diagnostic Imaging Specialist (Former Employee), Portland, ORSeptember 27, 2012
Pros: over-time hours
Cons: pay
This was a great place to work. All day long I was filling requests for files from doctors, radiology techs, both in the hospital and outside doctors offices. Management was positive, professional, and took the time to talk with us when needed. My co-workers made it fun for me to go to work each day. The hardest part of my job was that it was not very – more... challenging mentally, and I wasn't using skills for which I had been trained, and the radiologists did not have very good bed-side manners. I believe my co-workers were the best part of my job. – less
