Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Gadsden, AL – December 14, 2017
I really believe that if you worked at this hospital in the past or had a negative outcome, you need to revisit. The changes they have made to the nursing staff, administration, and in all areas are guiding the way for a bright future. I wake up everyday as a RN loving my job, which is hard to believe. My director, Mandy Roberts is exceptional and always willing to lend a ear if needed. The Director of Nursing is newer to this company and you can tell she is open to her staff, caring, and fair. She is helping these floors form better decisions about evidence based practice and patient/staff ratios. The staff is always smiling, friendly, and helpful. This is a small town hospital environment, where behind the scenes they are going above and beyond at improving patient care. As a nurse, all you really want to know is the hard day you put in is appreciated and that you are really making a difference in a patients life. I feel like at Riverview, I am making a difference, and when I do someone is always there to tell me they noticed I did a great job.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – November 20, 2017
Supervisor only thought of themselves and not the employees. Training was a joke, I came into the job knowing more than the supervisor. The rotation never changed and people who could not do the walking patrol were hired. This led to one guard doing all of the work instead of mixing it up. The pay raise was a slap in the face, a nine cent raise? I only did the job because the CNO asked me to come to work there. I'm glad I quit.
Wages, personnel, shift start times, lack of a structured supervisor
I enjoy working at Riverview Cafteria Cashier, Sales and Cook
Cashier/Cook (Current Employee) – Gadsden, AL – September 2, 2017
I enjoy working with Riverview and working cashier, sales and cook. Everyone gets alone well and the management is great. I just need more money and would like a caree change due to no paid off time for holidays or vacations. Other than that a great place to work.
A good hospital but would not recommend working there
Outpatient Medical Coder (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – August 24, 2017
I was a medical coder there. The management was nice, but favored people. I was only there for 2 months before they laid me off. Usually a hospital doesn't lay off coders but I was the first one to go.
Vascular Technologist (Current Employee) – Gadsden, AL – June 28, 2017
We are normally pretty busy with outpatients and inpatients. The people I work with are very nice and a pleasure to work with. Our RAD group are the best. They help you when you are not sure what is needed.
Riverview Regional Medical Center owned by Prime Healthcare
IT Technician (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – May 10, 2017
Riverview Regional Medical Center was a great place to work until they were bought out by Prime Healthcare and they basically ran it into the ground. Prime Healthcare is an extremely mismanaged corporation. You cannot have a functional and successfully run business when you shut down 80% of your facility and alienate the medical community you depend on for business.
Staff Nurse/ Back up charge nurse (Current Employee) – Gadsden, AL – May 5, 2017
Great team atmosphere. Patient nurse ratio is 6:1. They use the Epic Charting System. There is room for advancement. Management are great with the exception of 1 house supervisor. She is condescending and only her opinion matters. If you give your opinion she takes it as you are questioning her and she will inform you real quick that she is the SUPERVISOR. I love my job!
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Gadsden, AL – February 19, 2017
A very busy morning getting pts ready for surgery and some procedures.Iv started, teaching and physical assessments done.I have learned a lot since being on a surgery unit and that is to try to help the patient understand what will be happening thru this experience.
