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.

Riverview was a great place to work several years ago. However, with new corp buying and new upper management, this place is a dangerous place to be. Both as an employee and as a patient. Employee satisfaction is a way of the past. I wouldn't recommend this hospital to a friend.
Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – November 21, 2016
Poor management, poor communication from administration, co workers don't work together, they argue and complain about everything everyday. Poor decisions made, patient and employee best interest is at the bottom of the list
ICU Registered Nurse Part Time (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – August 24, 2016
I held a part-time position as a ICU Nurse. I floated to several of the advanced care units. The staff was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. The depth of their ability to care for critically ill patients created a learning experience. The unit manager was cooperative in working with me around my full time position's schedule.

I know Riverview has some positive reviews, but in the past year or so all has changed. It is unorganized and understaffed to the point of danger.
Even though they say they will cut out overtime, they never do and overtime is mandatory if you want to keep your job.
They hire managers that are friends and have usually never worked in the area they manage, thus are poor managers. How employees are treated is based on your friendship with the managers.If you are there close friend or relative, you can do no wrong. Otherwise too bad.
They do not value their employees at all. If you have questions or comments about staffing they will find a way to get rid of you.
Hopefully they will make some very needed changes, but who knows.
It is a small hospital and you meet some nice people.
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Gadsden, AL – September 24, 2015
People you work with are very nice and willing to show you things if you don't understand or don't know how to do something. You don't work in the same place every day. You get put in different positions such as the ER, the units, or just floor treatments. Work load isn't that bad. Benefits are great. Technology and equipment are currently being updated.
Under the direct supervision of a Cardiopulmonary, administered breathing treatments, lung inflation exercises, patient evaluation and relayed information to doctor via. medical records and sometimes verbally.
experience, lots of overtime
extremely heavy work load, may not get a break, may be pushed beyond level of education and experience. Dangerous patient technician ratio
