Registered Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – November 6, 2015
Heavy work loads, short staffed, unable to provide adequate care. Managers will throw you under the bus faster than your worst enemy. Co-workers are wonderful and always willing to help. Outdated practices due to lack of funding, but you provide the best care you can with the materials you're given.

Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Staten Island, NY – July 3, 2014
RUMC is a great place to work. Management works with their staff and listens to their concerns. Like any other place they have areas that need improvement but for the most part they are a good play to work for.

Plumber (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – December 26, 2013
A typical day at Richmond University Hospital was like the weather. Being a plumber for the campus for over 8 years things were never ''normal'' but that's why i loved working there. Every day was a new adventure for me because parts of the building were so old there would be a new leak and or problem to trouble shoot every day. Working a RUMC I have learned new aspects of plumbing like working with high pressure steam pumps and machinery. Co-workers were friendly. The hardest part of my job was arguing with management about making me work with asbestos, I guess they felt it was safe! I did not and that is one of the reasons I no longer work there. Safety is one of my goals. The most enjoyable part of my day was when i made a repair on some broken pipe and got the place back up and running. It truly made me feel good.
close to home
management and being made to work in unsafe conditions
The staff are nice and helpful. The environment of the medical center is good to patients and the staff working there. Although I am just a nurse student, the manager there and RN are always wish to help you and teach you. I can learn a lot here.
