Staff Nurse Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 18, 2017
A very clickish workplace culture. A typical day at work involved a 4 baby assignment, being pulled to General Nursery or Level III. Unfair assignments. Being pulled to other units out of turn due to friendships/bonds of charge nurses with staff nurses.
I loved the patients and the staff, but unfortunately I had to leave due to a broken arm. My position was subsequently filled, and although I was on a leave of absence until January, 2017, there are currently no jobs in my field available.
Nurse Manger of Surgical Services (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 12, 2017
I worked in surgery which was a very busy, under staffed unit. Many times, staff were forced to stay because there were no staff to relieve them on their cases. As the manager, I relieved and gave lunches on a daily basis which, in turn, forced me to stay late to get my work completed. The staff in this department have been pampered and catered to for so long, they do not know how to react when soemthing doesn't go their way.
In addition, the standards of care and everyday practices were unsafe in my opinion. CRNA to MD ratio to cover were not appropriate. In addition, Universal Protocol (time-out process) was not consistently practiced and not viewed as a necessary part of practice.
Staff were valued. Lunches, movie tickets, etc. were consistently being given to staff.
Registered Nurse- Labor and Delivery (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 4, 2017
Overall, fulfilling and rewarding job. I've worked at worse hospitals. For the most part I love my co-workers. The unit stays busy though, so it can be exhausting. I feel that I have learned a lot here and am sad to leave. Am only leaving due to husband's job relocation.
Staff RN I (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 4, 2016
The Woman's Hospital recruited me while I was still in college. As my first job as an RN, I learned more than I ever imagined I needed to learn. I met several phenomenal women, RNs, that I am still close friends with today. I am proud to say I was part of their family.
Labor and Delivery Admitting Rep (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 18, 2015
Woman's Hospital is a great place to work. The staff and the administration is exceptional. It is a fun family environment with people who truly care about each other. I enjoyed my time there and would encourage anyone to work there. Great atmosphere to work.
A typical day her is seeing lots of baby's being born. Things that I learned were communicating with others and working consistent pace. Working in this hospital also teaches me how to manage my time. The hardest part of this job can be dealing with some of the patients and their families. The most enjoyable part of this job is having the chance to see babies been born.
I have worked all three shifts: 7-3, 3-11, 11-7 and loved working with coworkers
