Senior Ambulatory Assistant (Current Employee) – Staten Island, NY – June 1, 2017
Being in the mental health/substance abuse field my every day interactions with clients and families haven't always been easy. Sometimes being spat at, called obscene names, or having water thrown on you can leave negativity seeping into your skin. It takes patience understanding and compassion to deal with such situations. I strongly believe in quality over quantity in delivering a high quality of service. Richmond University has helped me learn and grow and has given me the skills to fulfill a job well done. The most enjoyable part of my job would be helping patients everyday.
EMT-B (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – May 23, 2017
RUMC was the first hospital to take and train me after getting certified. As with any organizations, there are bad apples among the bunch, but in this case it does not spoil the bunch. A change in hiring procedures and leadership has allowed for more qualified and overall better people to get hired. They expect a lot, but they give you the tools and guidance to be the best you can be. If they offered me a per diem or part time position, I'd take it in a heartbeat.
Good people, interesting cases
Some people are difficult to work with, some outdated equipment

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 Outdated practices due to lack of funding, but you provide the best care you can with the materials you're given.

I personally have not had the opportunity to work for Richmond University Medical Center. I fulfilled most to all observations and rotations at this facility and found it to be a great foundation and experience.

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.
