Registered Nurse (Volunteer) (Former Employee), Lab, nursing units, blood donor center – March 5, 2013
I loved my 11 years at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital. I felt like the departments worked across the hospital as a team. We felt like a great big family I was so proud of the hospital I was a part of.

Union Hospital is a small hospital with big ideas and intentions. The hospital strives to really focus on individual patient care and always puts the patient first.
I have learned many different skills while working at Union Hospital. Sometimes you really have to think outside of the box in order to get the study completed while in stressful situations. – more... Union Hospital constantly keeps you on your toes.
My co-workers are excellent people to work with. The hospital strives to bring in that coworker/family atmosphere and you can truly feel that atmosphere when you work there. You can not walk down the hallway without everyone you pass stopping to say "hello". – less

Pros: loved the hours, benefits and closeness to home
Cons: unhappy unit closed, seperated from co-workers i worked closely with, other units not happy with me, showed in my behavior
enjoyed the staff i worked with.am very organized and enjoyed my job until our unit was closed in sept.2012.was put in a float pool and went from unit to unit.had a new supervisor who was new to the hospital and did not seem to like me and therefore terminated me after 31 years because of my attitude.
A typical day of work for me is generally very busy. I am a permanent charge nurse in the operating room. I am not part of management, however, I do have to make a lot of managerial decisions. I love working with patients and other customers, however, political issues tend to impede my abilities sometimes. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting – more... to care for my patients. The hardest part of my job is dealing with difficult staff personalities. Since, I have been a nurse for over 16 years, I must say I have learned many things. I must say my biggest lesson that I have learned is to accept those things that you can not change and continue giving my patient's 100%. – less

Pros: wonderful place to work, i'm always learning
Cons: often times the pace becomes very fast-paced and demanding
My day normally start out with greeting patients and coworkers as I enter the unit, a review of the projected goals and list of patients assigned to me for that day. This is followed by the daily multidisciplinary treatment team meeting, returning phone calls and performing patient discharge plans, initial treatment plans and psycho-social assessments, – more... counseling patients and working intermittently with other medical staff (psychiatrist, medical doctors,nurses, insurance review staff and more). – less

Customer service skills are are a big deal here. You will be dealing with a lot of different people so u have to know how to communicate. Most of the employees are enjoyable people you will have a few Debbie Downers(not a person that works there just a figure of speach).
Care Associate (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD – July 28, 2012
Co workers were very mature independant and hard working. Sometimes the work load was very heavy put everyone would pitch in to help. I learned good team work priciples. It was hard to see patients you've grown to really like pass away, but it was good to see the others go home healthy and happy.
