Staff Nurse. (ED) (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 16, 2015
It gives me sense of family and desire to be productive. It is a great place to work The ED is always busy. There are more to do every time. Team work and primary care makes it all enjoyable to care for our patients.
Compensation is average, culture is entrenched, no room for advancement, but you do not have to take any work home with you.
Staff Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 17, 2012
For OTs there are only acute rehabilitation and outpatient rotations. Currently the supervisor is inpatient bedside. Co-workers are okay. The hardest part of the job is coming to work in a non-progressive work environment. Management is only interested in keeping their jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job are my patients and co-workers. WIth my co-workers we have many laughs at management's expense.
you don't have to bring your work home with you and its near my home.
salary, no room for advancement, acute rehab without an adl room, management only interested in keeping their jobs..

concentration, positive, timely. make sure I finish my duties on time, management satisfaction. understanding with my co-workers. Not doing my job as instructed by my supervisor. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I receive certificate of complement, and through rise on my salary.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – February 24, 2015
I check my email, supervise the clerks and let them know what needs to be done for the day. I enjoy working with my coworkers. The hardest thing when a pt dies. I get to interact with many people. I love the challenge and learn new things.
Manger Administrative Services (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – September 24, 2013
I have two years working for The Brooklyn Hospital Center and also in the health field.I knew I wanted a career change and a place where patients are our primary focus. TBHC and it's staff has definitely put me up to speed when it comes to the health field. My everyday is never dull and I am excited to come to work. I manage three different dpts and it keeps me busy. When I first started one of the assignments given to me was to bring up the moral and I am proud to say that I have rebuilt a team to one that is self managed and positive. I do seek work elsewhere because of the commute. I want to be closer to home.
Neglect of patients. Apathetic staff and Management
Occupational Therapist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – January 3, 2013
I worked here as a Occupational Therapist for a 13 week travel assignment. I have extensive experience as an OT and have never encountered such a hostile and apathetic work environment.
Rehab management consistently pressures therapists to treat inappropriate patients. Two faced management cares only about their own jobs. Grossly under equipped rehab department. Rehab Dr. regularly commits borderline to full on medicare fraud. Do not let your family members stay here for acute rehabilitation!
Nurses and Techs rarely use gloves and patients on contact precautions never appropriately marked and contact precautions rarely followed by staff.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the 1-2 out of the 10 PTs who actually care about what they do and provide quality care.
close to home
very poor patient care, unprofessional management and staff
Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – September 4, 2015
At Brooklyn Hospital, the brief time I spent there was fun. The medical staff I was working with was very friendly and everyone was willing to give me advice on how to perform my duties. I was a volunteer but I learned a lot from the short time I spent. The environment was demanding but rewarding and I would have loved to continue working there if it wasn't a temporary summer job.
DRIVER/ COURIER (Former Employee) – Brooklyn – March 10, 2015
A typical day at work would be collectively active. Though I was/am a driver, I spent the majority of my day on my feet. I would pick up Prescriptions from the Hospital Pharmacy to deliver to off-site Clinic locations. I would also deliver mail to these off-site locations, and also deliver Confidential mail to the homes of the members of The Board of Trustees. I learned to become more effective by rearranging the delivery route daily depending on work load and/or daily traffic. I must add that there were a few "Emergency Pick-ups" at other Hospitals for Surgical necessities; I would have to rearrange deliveries and/or specimen pick-ups from off-site locations for these "Emergency Pick-ups."
Feeling of Accomplishment, Driving, Helping co-workers
Short or No Breaks, Sitting for long periods of time due to traffic
Emergency (Former Employee) – Brooklyn – October 3, 2014
Little to no training or development after hire. Lack of respect and support from managers (unappreciative, condescending and rude). Poor onsite IT support: it can weeks to get working computer or email account and often takes days to fix even basic issues.
Overall, some nice people, but many grumbling, catty and cut-throat managers and employees. BHC needs to work on it's employee relations and start show a little more humility to its kind.
Convenience of working in Brooklyn and diversity.
Disrespectful managers, little training and poor IT support
Director of Patient Relations/Volunteer dept. (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 1, 2015
The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to have a favorable outcome. For example, when an irate patient walks into the office with a complaint, I am able to immediately diffuse the situation. My excellent written and verbal communication skills allow me to identify proper tactics such as attentive listening, problem solving and escalation prevention. Once the issue is resolved, the client regains their trust in the facility and leaves with complete satisfaction. This is precisely why changing a patients irate attitude to a favorable outcome is the enjoyable part of my job.

Medical Assistant (Internship/Volunteer) (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 23, 2014
I found my internship to be very rewarding.The staff members responsible for teaching us were skilled, very helpful, thorough and patient. As a matter of fact, all the staff were willing to teach and share their experience with you. Most days were very busy and you found yourself alternating between completing clinical tasks and administrative duties. I loved interacting with the patients as well as the physicians. It would have been an excellent place to work permanently, however, the company does not currently hire their interns. I believe that by not doing so, the company is missing out on a valuable resource. We are trained by your standards, on your systems and would make excellent additions to your company. I have graduated, but I hope future interns have the opportunity to become employees if they possess the skills and desire to do so. I am still a volunteer and I continue to learn from the excellent staff.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 21, 2013
Very busy from start to finish. Consisted of billing, appointments, authorizations and any other duties that may arise. The environment was family oriented but unfortunately was treated very unfairly by the management most of the time. The hardest part of the job is doing what you are supposed to do and beyond and still not being appreciated for it
Phlebotomist Technician (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 29, 2014
Getting on time to prepare examining rooms for the doctors to see the patients, preparing paper work required for patients charts, translation for spanish speaking patients, transporting patients to different specialty areas to be examined, making appointments, answering telephone calls, filing, faxing, making photocopies, data entry and most of all being compassionate with all the patients and the people I worked for. I learned to be a caring person The hardest part was to lift heavy heavy boxes And the enjoyable was to be able to help patients with their needs.
I loved my work & was sad to see the position eliminated.
Manager of Nursing Informatics (Former Employee) – Brooklyn NY – August 30, 2014
Was always trying to have the staff build confidence with the EMR. It was wonderful running around all day making them more comfortable with it & reassuring them that they always had help available. Making them smile & relax made my day. I also was the administrator of the electronic staffing system. I enjoyed the people I was working with.
Never a dull monent. The day went very quickly
Was a distance from my home, making the days very long
