RN (Current Employee) – Ambulatory surgery – February 19, 2017
Riverview has a friendly work staff and has been thru lots of turn over and changes in my time employed. We have had some low census since a few Doctors left.I have worked with many different Dept heads and learned all the different ideas each one offered. The hardest part is on very heavy surgery days and have to work without enough help.
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Westfield, IN – January 5, 2017
We have built a very strong practice and have amazing patients. My coworkers are dependable and competent. I work with an wonderful doctor who is very empathetic and down to earth. However, the management is poor which breaks down morale.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – December 9, 2016
Working on the floor it helped learn how to deal with the older patients. How to care for their needs and it helped with the personal life of taking care of my grandpa. The nurses was always wonderful to work with.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Wisconsin Rapids, WI – September 2, 2015
typical day I took care of 5-9 patients. administered medication, assessed their vitals, did a head to toe. I worked well with my co-workers. They had said that when I was working with them they knew there was someone there that they could rely on to help out at any time. The hardest part of my job was rotating from nights to day shift. There was never enough time off between shift for me to get acclimated back to the day shift. I just had to kind of do it or die. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with others that were there to make a difference in every patients life. To be able to work with patients and teach them about their health.
Good place to work. Gave me a very thorough new graduate training. Gave me opportunities for charge duties, precepting, and cross training
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Noblesville, IN – August 29, 2015
Riverview Hospital has a good program for orienting new graduates. I felt competent after completing my first three months. I was able to practice a wide variety of skills on a daily/ shiftly basis. I worked in acute rehabilitation and med-surg. There were many excellent, highly-experienced nurses around who were available and kind. The managers and clinical supervisors did a great job maintaining good staff to patient ratios. The maternity department was in slight disarray when I was hired on there. They had just had a large turn over, and needed more experienced nurses quickly. It just didn't happen quick enough. The unit manager who hired me left about two months after I started training there. An interim manager was chosen from the pool of experienced nurses working on the unit, and she had no prior managerial experience. I received a lot of valuable training in the field of maternity nursing which included post-partum, labor and delivery, and newborn care, as well as C-section scrub duties and pre and post-op nursing care. It was a lot to take in, and my preceptors were often flustered and stressed out because of the general state of the unit at the time. Luckily, there were no adverse outcomes for any patients that I saw during the time I was working there. It is a very small, low-acuity Maternity unit.

Volunteer (Current Employee) – Wisconsin Rapids, WI – May 5, 2015
I enjoy working with people. I greet the patients or visitors that walk in the door and the main lobby at the hospital. I will also answer and make phone calls. I have learned many new things by being a volunteer at the hospital. I have learned how to deal with people if they are not sure where they are going. My co-workers are great, I enjoy working with them. The hardest part of my job would be that if I'm not sure where a certain doctor's office is, but I remember I need to breathe and look in the binder.
Environmental services (Former Employee) – Noblesville,indiana – March 19, 2015
Basically,the housekeepers are in cliques and treat newcomers like garbage. I worked with several different girls,and only one girl was nice to me. The rest were very stuffy and acted as if I was nothing,the management sucks because they train you one day and throw you by yourself. A new girl that started with me,was a lying con pillhead and she got in trouble several times for dirty rooms,she told me,ill just do good for a week and when the heats off,ill go back to doing nothing. I was flabergasted bc this is a hospital,and she shouldve been fired,but she wasnt,I would not recommend this place for a job and definately would NOT let my loved ones stay here,its dirty,unsanitary and repulsive!!
Bad management, no teamwork, very unfriendly environment

Patient Access Specialist (Former Employee) – Noblesville, IN – July 31, 2014
Not very friendly environment, very poor management. I loved working for this company but the department has a very bad reputation due to poor management. I enjoyed working with patients. Compensation is significantly less than with other hospitals.
Operator Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – June 2, 2014
Will-calls picked up so everyone is working together as a team. A customer is at the front desk waiting on an air condition unit. Considering I am crossed trained, I was able to drive the hi-lo to the air conditioner area to pull it down from the 3 story high shelf. The hardest part was making sure there was no snags on the box that can cause serious injuries. The enjoyable part was being able to do more than one job in one customer service transaction.
