5 Stars for the kids, the nurses, and CNA's who care for them
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Bayside, NYJanuary 3, 2017
Management is horrible, no support from them . If you have anything going on in your life that you want to keep private ...keep it to yourself or the whole hospital will be alerted by the manager who acts like there is such concern about you !!
Best part about working here is the nursing staff along with CNA's who really care for these kids....advocating for them at every turn. Very disorganized HR and management team...Pay scale is on the lower side and BSN is preferred but not compensated !
Pros
Vacation time
Cons
Benefits, pay both very low ...union dues to be paid every paycheck without all the benefits of retirement

Good place
Pediatric Nurse (Former Employee) –  Bayside, NYOctober 9, 2016
A wonderful place to work. The kids are so cute. Some of the newer nurses are better and nicer that the older seasoned nurses. Supportive management. Hardest part of the job is when one of the kids get really sick.
Pros
Rewarding taking care of the kids.
Cons
low salary

Unhappiest Place on Earth! (homecare)
Nursing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  5 Dakota Dr # 200, New Hyde Park, NY 11042September 16, 2016
Upper management extremely unprofessional eg... gossiping about employees. When things go wrong, instead of looking for solutions, the blame game is played. Rumors run ramped through the office. The atmosphere is one of fear and distrust. Good nursing care is not a priority. There is no help to be found from human resources. The director appears either unconcerned or incompetent.
Pros
salary and benefits
Cons
work environment

The best part is taking care of these special kids ...thanks to the care of the nurses and the CNA .....but if only the investors could see what goes on .....

Intake Department vital to business
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New Hyde Park, NYSeptember 25, 2015
Job offered a lot of opportunity to learn. Communicating with liaisons at hospitals and following up to provide home care services helped me gain many skills. Able to work independently most of the time. Co-workers always supportive.
Pros
Diversity of work
Cons
Supervisors not always available when needed.

Personnel Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New Hyde Park, NYAugust 24, 2015
As a Personnel Coordinator I would have to ensure that the annual contracts, malpractice insurance, and physicals with our therapists were up-to-date before the therapist was assigned to a patient.

Former Supervisor
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  New Hyde ParkApril 16, 2014
There are some good people who really care about the children especially staff. The children are amazing and you always want to do your best because of those kids. The upper management beyond incompetent. A lot of politics and covering each other behinds, no accountability for bed decisions. HR the worst, no confidentiality, unprofessional, phony HR director and her assistant. Don’t count for any help. That is why the union got into the hospital. They have great benefits. No room to grow unless you know who to keep with.
Pros
Children, benefits, experience
Cons
Upper Management

Wonderful Children, staff, management in disarray
healthcare (Former Employee) –  baysideMarch 25, 2014
It isn't as wonderful as it appears on the interview and walk through. Constant bickering between departments, staff talking behind each others backs. Meetings were so unproductive, usually with snide quips of staff to each other before, during and after. It makes getting to know all the members of each floor in a positive way very difficult, and working as a team virtually impossible.

The children are amazing and deserve the best care possible. They were the bright spot of every day.

Unpleasant working environment.
Pros
excellent benefits
Cons
uneasy, unpleasant, rude working enviornment
