Nurse (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – September 5, 2017
Although it was a rough start when I got to RGH/ElderOne, it has improved dramatically over the last 3 years. The combination of good leadership and the influx of high skilled nurses has resulted in a major shift in the culture there.
Patient Care Technician/ Interpreter (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 31, 2017
The day at RGh was very past paced. Everyday was a new learning experience and never a dull moment. Lots of team work. Manager we're always availed for discussion. The most difficult part was not being able to give all the attention you would like to your patients due to my vacation gn at fast pace.
PCT (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 30, 2017
a typical day at my job is meeting new people every day. The hardest part of my job is when I get close to a patient or family and the patient dies. The most enjoyable part of my job is my coworkers and there is always room for growth
Good working environment in Physical Therapy Department
Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 23, 2017
PT assistants at RGH rotate every three months between treating patients at bedside and working in the PT Gym with orthopedic patients. PT assistants are expected to produce 22 units of billable PT treatments every day but this is not always possible when the PT census is low. For the most part management has been very responsive in assisting me to have a good work-life balance. The hardest parts of this job is trying to achieve the expected productivity goal each day and dealing with the unrealistic expectations of some physicians regarding their patients' mobility issues. One of the most enjoyable parts of this job is working with patients and helping them achieve their mobility goals so they can go back home and resume their lives after being in the hospital. Another enjoyable aspect of my job is working with the New Vision and Youth Apprentice Students in our department and coordinating observation hours for students who hope to become physical therapists.
Good benefits, off street parking, Wellness Center, supportive co-workers
Lack of advancement opportunities for PT assistants
Specimen Management Tech 1 (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 11, 2017
I love working in the lab. I see so many interesting things without the stress of being up there in the operating rooms. Working in Pathology is a challenging job, but also rewarding. I've had some of the best bosses working in the lab setting and I'm so thankful for that.
Fun place to work. People I worked with were great!
Facilities Technician II Skilled (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – August 8, 2017
Most of my work at Rochester General was per diem work. Filled in for employees for vacation, sickness, etc. Work varied from doing rounds to covering on calls etc. Management was fine and easy to get along with.
Chemotherapy Scheduler (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – July 10, 2017
Working in Oncology can be very challenging at times. At times it is very depressing but also rewarding as it gives a new perception on life and makes you want to live life to the fullest. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping patients. The hardest part is when patients pass away.
Food and Nutrition Service Worker (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – July 2, 2017
I enjoyed my job at Rochester General Hospital. It was a fast paced job so 8 hours went by quickly. It was multi-tasking which I enjoy. We always worked as a team and I was happy to be a part of that. Customer service is important to me and I was able to excel the opportunity in this area. It was only because I moved out of state that I left the job and that was a difficult decision to make. I would recommend Rochester General to anybody interested
