A typical day at work was making sure that patient arrived at their schedule appointments on time. Upper management, was understanding and easy going to work with. The hardest part of the job was that I received pages at 2am in the morning. The most enjoyable was everyone was warm, insightful and ambitious.

Staff Nurse - Surgical Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 28, 2015
A typical day at work can be strenuous, but one can learn a lot. The manager on the Surgical Intensive Care Unit is very resourceful. I wouldn't recommend new graduates to work for this employer. My coworkers are not as helpful as I would like them to be. The hardest part of the job is trying to manage the high patient acuity. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning new things and providing great patient care.
U of C is an excellent patient, they provide the best care to their patients and the newer buildings help make the patients stay a little easier
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 28, 2015
U of C is a beautiful campus and provides excellent patient care with various specialty units. I enjoyed working there and enjoyed making a small difference in the patients lives. However, the PCT's often worked extremely short staffed and many of the RN's did not think it was part of their job description to help us out. We often had up to 36 patients with only one PCT. When issues were brought to management they very often seemed to be swept under the rug. My coworkers were mostly all related therefore making it a very unwelcoming environment.
I absolutely loved being a part of the U of C team, I felt honored to be working at such a wonderful hospital.
Poor management for the unit, not enough team work, very short staffed.
I worked in the Respiratory Therapy Dept.at the University of Chicago Hospital about 3 years ago, for 11 yrs.on the night shift with the adult patients.The patient workload was busy, but manageable. We had a very close-knit team of excellent therapist, who were willing to help each other out whenever possible, if needed. Mid management was very competent, and usually friendly, approachable, and caring. However, I rated management at only 2 stars because of the Upper Management...they were callous, clueless, and unwilling or unable to address most of our concerns on the night shift. This created the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great team that I worked with. And the respect, and admiration that we received from many of the doctors, nurses, and other staff was nice. Most of our patients and their families really appreciated us.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 21, 2015
Professional environment with fully qualified and talented staff. Excellent Management, great scheduling, opportunities for career advancement. Every day I learned a great deal working there.

Patient Appointment Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 30, 2015
The actual duties are fine, but if you have a question or need something out of the realm of your specific duties no one knows anything. No one answers the phone and everyone acts like they are scared to talk to the patients.
