LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) LPN charge (Current Employee) – VA – November 14, 2017
I like working close within my community. We have had a LOT of managers through out the years and the past 3 or 4 haven't really had a clue what goes on or how to effectively manage but I think that's a lot now days when you have MSN or BSN nurses who haven't worked on the floor since the 80s. Compensation is good and you get regular raises according to performance. Everyone works together as a team.
Practice Manager; Clinical Supervisor (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – November 10, 2017
Working for Riverside allowed me to grow and gain useful experience in my professional career. They would be better to recognize those who are hard working instead of physicians who are arrogant and narcissistic. It takes the whole team to function.

Constant change. Enjoy a fast paced environment with screening calls, greeting the public, scheduling meetings, selling hospital displays, scheduling advertising and printing, proofreading and editing publications prior to printing. Assist other departments when needed and schedule and execute Employee Appreciation Events.

Could use more talent in upper management. More patient oriented and compassionate. Not customer based at all. Doctors and directors are leaving by the drones. No Plan in place and allowing really good, respected doctors leave. Upper management has no idea of what a plan is- Do now and plan later is the way they work.

I had two deaths in my family while working here and there was no sympathy or condolences.i was terminated by a certified letter due to missing work when it was a management mistake with the schedule and lack of communication.i chose not to fight it because it was a temporary job.The situation could’ve been handled differently and more professional like a face to face meeting. The supervisor didn’t return phone calls nor respond to text when asking about schedule confusion but texted me asking about returning gear after termination

Riverside is a fantastic starting place for nursing. I have experienced a range of fields in my time here from minor injuries to dialysising patients. I’ve lead codes, units, admissions, discharged, sending out to acute care to bringing them back, collaborating with doctors and practitioners, I’ve had a tremendous amount of experience. Now, I look forward to a brighter future in nursing as I continue my education and pursue my career!

Great people, great place to work. Always opportunities to advance. Good benefits good pay, great teamwork among staff and management. Since I have worked here I have learned new things as I am given new job duties to perfom.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – September 15, 2017
I worked here for 13 years. The work atmosphere was generally pleasant among coworkers but, there really was no real teamwork, which made it harder to properly care for patients/residents. Healthcare is about teamwork. We often were under-staffed, and expected to work with excellence, under these conditions. (Didn't happen). Too many call-outs which left floors short. Benefits are good but, health care is relatively high. Really loved the complimentary discounted fitness and wellness membership. Pay is low compared to other facilities in the area. Overtime is being cut out frequently, even though facility is understaffed,but, you do get paid shift differential for working evenings and nights .
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 7, 2017
Too much to say. Just know what exactly you want from this place. I worked there strictly to pay for my pct course. And at the same time use the experience to get me a pct position but things did not work out in my favor because the pay was too little.
Work for 8 hrs but pay is for 7. No one covers for lunch breaks
Unlimited opportunities and abilities for RN's. High demand for RN's of all experience levels.

There aren't any typical days at RRMC. Fast paced leading acute care hospital in Hampton roads. Diverse patient and colleague population. Excellent place to learn and grown and build as a professional nurse. However, this is not a place to solidify and retire. This is not a pro-nurse institution that advertises and seeks out shared governance opportunities and talent. In addition, nurse's are not empowered to contribute to their craft while achieving dreams, goals, and higher education. Institution has a focus on receiving professional nurses but, not retaining and empowering them.
Management in Memory care was terrible with high turnover
Homemaker (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – August 28, 2017
Untrained supervisors that made the job harder with each new supervisor hired. There was no team work, always under staffed, a lot of brown nosing, and most of the staff stayed on their phones more than they worked. Activities director in Memory Care is inexperienced, only posted activities for show, unethical, cut-throat, and very immature.
over worked, under staffed, under paid, no team work, inexperienced supervisors.
