Director, Volunteer Services (Former Employee) – Woodbury, New Jersey – August 4, 2012
Underwood-Memorial Hospitla is the greatest place that I ever worked. The executive management team always puts the patients first. The staff is always friendly and everyone works well together. We genuinely liked each other. I would recommend working at Underwood-Memorial. The biggest mistake of my career was leaving this wonderful hospital for a higher paying job. I love this hospital.
caring management staff, respect, outstanding patient care

administration and certain department heads care more about personal goals then workers. Many employee benefits and perks done away with, while administration keeps high pay and comps which has been going on for years. In my department alot of HIPAA violations,harassment by department head,and hostile work environment.
A typical day at UMH makes me look forward to working. I am usually busy with patients, but if it becomes stressful or I need help, I know I have other helping hands because the other staff there is wonderful and quick to help. I learned the best teamwork strategies and prioritizing skills there. I got to know the people in the management positions and have gained great respect for the complexity and balancing required for healthy management to exist. I truly enjoy working with all of my co-workers and within six months I felt that I knew nearly everyone in the hospital already, they are very welcoming, friendly, helpful, and know how to give everyone, patients and staff alike, a great smile when they need it. The hardest part of my job is that I am an perfectionist and very detail-oriented and there often simply is not enough time in a shift to do everything that I want to do. So, this is where I have put my prioritizing strategies to work. However, I love knowing that I am able to make a difference in someone's day in any way, whether it be that they told me that I gave them the best bed bath they ever got or was just able to help them smile with my sense of humor. I love working with people, so it is often very hard for me to have a bad day at work, that is why I chose to pursue nursing.
