Finance cash control medical reception (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – September 17, 2015
Constant special assignments added to the work load. Expected to join special committees, if you do not you will be written up. Time clock policies are very strict, as is overtime as well. Depends on where you are working at this Organization as to weather the management are even fulfilling their duties, most Managers or even supervisors just pass the buck.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – February 19, 2017
I love caring for people. I love making them smile. I try to talk about things that make them happy and in turn some of my own. A positiveness is so important. When caring for a person, to me, it's not just a job it's a calling.
Student Nurse / Clinical Rotations (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 25, 2015
Nurses didn't spend much time with the patients to offer patient care or education. The nurses always would send the tech in to take care of patient and rarely spent time with patient unless medication was administered.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Cath Lab – February 18, 2015
There is absolutely no management and no support from the person who is the manager/director. There is no communication between the manager and the staff. One employee makes the schedule and gives SOME employees any day off they choose and others get hammered and the manager allows it. One employee assigns daily procedures and gives their "friends" no cases but dumps on the people they don't care for and the manager allows it. There is a huge discrimination between the nurses and the certified techs and that is fed from the manager/director because in management's eyes a BAD nurse is better than any tech. The call time is horrible, you get called in on the weekends to do elective procedures. If you work all night you will most often have to work all day, and the manager allows it!!! not caring about safe patient care as long as HE doesn't have to work in the lab. I can go on forever about the horrible management!!!! The manager/director is the root of ALL the problems in the Cath Lab there but admin doesn't care and that's just bad for patients and for staff. The only good thing I can say, is the Doctors are kind and a pleasure to be around!! Skip this one guys!!!
Pt/Family Coordinator (Former Employee) – St. Mary's Hospital – May 19, 2014
The department I worked for was in continuous transition /w staffing shortages. PRN positions that were intended to be part time were full-time /w overtime. PRN positions rarely were offered regular positions that included benefits. Some employees worked for years /w no benefits. In comparison of other job opportunities in the valley in the same profession, the salary was low (10%) of the average salary for the profession. The department was over worked and short staffed. There is (was) no concern or flexibility for the staff's needs in regards to scheduling.
HR (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – May 8, 2013
I loved working at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado. I enjoyed working with the managers. Majority of employees are very friendly and care about providing the best service to their customers. The mission and values are wonderful.
Unfortunately, the organization has been going through serious changes and restructuring. Many positions were centralized to Denver and that is why I left because I didn't want to have to move because I love the Western Slope. If ever an opportunity came up that fit my specialty and experience I would hope to be rehired.
Staff RN (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – January 7, 2012
While this hospitals' stated values are excellent, the DON I worked under seemed blind to what was really happening on the unit in which I worked. Favoritism, bullying, irresponsible and unsafe work ethics are widely tolerated. Nurse-patient ratio NOT ACUITY based causing unsafe patient loads. Floating into more acute units without proper training was the norm. Understaffing was prevalent.
