Needed better management.
Registered Nurse Team Leader (Former Employee), Edgewood KYDecember 1, 2014
Pros: had a good work schedule
Cons: they keep giving more and more to do but never get more staff, always say the staffing grid is going to get better but it never does, only getting 1 40 min break in a 12 hr shift because not feasible to take break early part of shift, and not getting proper support from management
Could use more structured management. Management doesn't do the same with every employee/staff member and some of the inconsistencies are very obvious. This causes animosity between staff members. I spent more than 29 years working for this place so I am grateful for everything I have learned which is immeasurable. Not all co-workers were to my standards – more... which was brought up to management and some things never changed, therefore I really think stronger, more consistent management would work better with so many staff members. The hardest part of the job is to work short staffed but they don't change our work load and still give us more patients when we don't have the staff to appropriately care for them. This makes for dangerous situations even though management continues to expect the highest quality of care. Management will let you know if your work wasn't "A+" regardless of the staffing situation. By far the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the patients/families and seeing them get better. Having a patient recognize you for doing the best job you can do is rewarding. – less

High Expectations/Limited Support
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Edgewood, KYNovember 23, 2014
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: all other aspects
Poor pay and benefits. Constant push to do more with no pay or advancement incentive. Management is inconsistent. Focus is on numbers and not individuals. Work harder each year with new guidelines and criteria. Chose to get an advanced degree and move on.

very fast paced, multi task
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Edgewood, KYOctober 20, 2014
the morning started out with a morning stack of at least 30 sticks and then after that was followed up with other routine draws throughout the day, timed-study draws, and stats. These patients varied from newborns to geriatrics. I never really thought any part of the job was difficult and I was continuously learning new things everyday.

Good people doing their best to provide good healthcare
Systems Analyst for the Behavioral Health Unit (Former Employee), Granite City, ILSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: working closely with caregivers
Cons: extreme budget cuts to every associate except doctors.
Excellent conditions for some while other departments were crowded into tiny offices.

I learned how to access an SQL based database and write command structures to generate reports.

The most difficult part was doing the budget and being directed to remove experienced people to meet health insurance payment cuts.

Good people with excellent ethics.

I love the people I work with. It can be very rewarding.
Nurse Technician (Current Employee), Utica, NYMay 14, 2014
Pros: free company handbags, water bottles, occasional free lunch
Working in healthcare can be very challenging, yet very rewarding at the same time. I learned going in with a smile and a hello can put a lot of patients at ease. I learned how to manage my time efficiently with getting A.M. care done in the morning because in healthcare no two days are ever the same. My co-workers are the greatest. The hardest part – more... of the job can be the stress level, but the most enjoyable part of the job is you truly make a difference in people's lives. – less

A stepping stone for most
Logistics, Transporter (Current Employee), Edgewood, KYApril 2, 2014
Pros: free excerise
Cons: there's a possibilty you may get sick.
St. Elizabeth Edgewood is the largest location of all its campuses, housing a number of different departments that create a busy and diverse work culture. A typical day as a Transporter includes moving patients to and from various test sites like X-Ray, Cat Scan, and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Every day has a degree of predictability, but new – more... challenges present themselves daily. Management and co-workers work as cohesively as possible to ensure patient safety and to enhance the patient experience. Challenges faced in my position are comforting scared, nervous, annoyed, or anxious patients; often they are ill and dealing with intense health issues that go beyond what I can offer. On the flip side, one of the most enjoyable parts of my position is interacting with the patients and various individuals from other departments; every encounter is an opportunity for learning and growth. – less

First RN job
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Utica, NYFebruary 3, 2014
I worked the 7p-7a shift. It was a very busy unit, 5 or 6 patients to an RN. Time Management and general nursing were my biggest achievement from this hospital. My co-workers worked great together, true team players.Management did the best they could with the resources they had to keep their staff happy. I felt that the hardest part of the job was to – more... give the best patient care, which they deserved. I thoroughy enjoyed the conversations with the patients, and the appreciation they showed for the care they received. – less

St. Elizabeth worked well with me and my needs
Float RN (Former Employee), Utica, NYJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: good benifits
Cons: driving own vehical
Would go to the clinic needed coverage, geriatric, pediatric, oncology, women's health , and general practice. This experience gave me a broad base knowledge in many areas of nursing. The hardest was the not knowing, the type of clients and physicians would be working with. Most enjoyable , meeting new people daily.

This was a very fulfilling job as a Phlebotomist and Pharmacy Tech
Phlebotomist/Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Dayton, OHJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: various job duties.
Cons: poor pay
I learned a lot about Phlebotomy and Pharmacy Tech. I work there for 4 years. There was a lot a variation with both jobs. Worked with doctors, nurses, patients and co-workers. The facility was very large so it required a great deal of physical demand of you.
