RN (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – December 31, 2016
Since Penn Medicine has taken over the hospital, the motto is do more with less as patient to nurse ratios have increased, providing ancillary nursing help has decreased, and nurses have less input in regards to decisions made by nursing administration and product purchasing. A once lovely place to work has turned into a culture of make money for the Penn System.
Excellent nurse/patient ratio, management involved in nursing
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – October 3, 2015
Assignment as almost never more than four patients. We had a daily "huddle" with our director and nurse manager, who communicated important information and wanted feedback on any pertinent issues on the floor. Team work was incredible, especially in a code situation.
Strong support from all disciplines, an equality based relationship with the Doctors, NP's an PA's.

As with any job in healthcare you will only go as far as your educational experience will carry you. Management is typical; the same I have experienced at a myriad of different employers. Staff is friendly; small town feel.

TCCH has an excellent culture and supportive management team. The toughest part of working in the ED is the overwhelming patient load that often occurs. The Chester County population has exploded in recent years, and the hospital has struggled to keep up with this growth. My co-workers have been fantastic at jumping in and helping when needed! I enjoy helping patients.
