NICU Clinical Specialist (Current Employee) – La Mesa, CA – July 7, 2017
Everyone is always with smiles. Sometimes it can be very busy and unsafe with very short staffing. However, staff rally together most of the time and get the job done. Although, fatigue from overwork sets-in very quickly with some having to go on leave of absence and/or sick leave, which brings back the issue of inadequate staffing.
Advanced Clinician, Clinical Nurse (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 3, 2017
even with the pay raise this year, we are not fairly compensated compared to other hospital systems. We have a very close team on my current unit, however, upper management seems to be money driven and not nurse/patient driven.
Dietary Hostess (Former Employee) – La Mesa, CA 91942 – May 9, 2017
Great hospital to work for. I loved my co workers and managers; but I loved the experiences with my patients most! I was so driven to meet and beat every patients expectations and make their experience the best one they have had yet !

All speech language pathologists are open to helping each other with therapy ideas. Each day is balanced between work and taking breaks. While being serious about getting one's work done the speech team makes it a point to stop and clock out for a short lunch break together.
Unit Clerk for the Labor and Delivery Department (Current Employee) – La Mesa, CA – December 12, 2016
Right now I am a Unit Clerk (HCP) and work in Labor and Delivery. I help a combined staff of 18 professional and ancillary staff. I check in triage patients, make charts for new admissions, verify the billing paper is complete, call MD's for delivery/epidurals/emergencies. The hardest part of the job was syncing everything together, after a couple of years it becomes very easy now. The employees are pretty close since we work 12 hour shifts, they become your family.
Nutrition Aide (Current Employee) – La Mesa, CA – October 23, 2016
During my time as a Nutrition Aid, which still includes the present, I have gained so much experience through interacting with fellow employees and the patients we delivered food to. Every day i'm at the hospital, it is essential that I talk to everyone in the kitchen and make sure they are not in need of any help. After i'm done with my check, or done with aiding someone who said they needed help, I begin my journey around the hospital to deliver every tray given. This position was originally frustrating to me, but after I experienced the appreciation of both the employees and the patients, I began to love this job and I began to love this hospital.

Host (Current Employee) – La Mesa, CA – March 22, 2016
our shifts star early in the morning depending on what floor youre in charge of taking orders for. you take the diet orders of every patient depending on their diets and then deliver it to them. our management can be rude at times but also very helpful. the coworkers mind their own business and some can be short tempered sometimes. hardest part of the job is staying alert for 10 hours being alert enough to give the patient the right meal plan. I enjoy getting to know my patients through communication and excellent service.
