Great Team work environment
Clinical Supervisor/Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVMarch 7, 2014
A typical day at work consists of staffing, nightly patient assignments to staff nurses, assigning admissions. I also do leadership rounds on patients for safety and satisfaction. I enjoy acting as a patient advocate as well as doing teaching to the patients and fellow nurses. The hardest part of my job is having to more than six patients to a nurse – more... when we are short staffed. The most enjoyable part of my job is being a team leader so that I can assist nurses and patients with education needs as well as advocating for both the nurses and the patients. – less

Terrible place to work
Director (Former Employee), Woodstock, VAJanuary 29, 2014
Egomaniac at the helm of the health system who is disconnected from what is going on and reality. Doesn't stop him as he has people that create his own reality. Could not have been more relieved to get a job elsewhere! No looking back on this place.

Great place to learn!
Patient Account Representative II (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: free health insurance
Cons: nylons are a requirement
If you want to learn this is the place. The pay is decent but they have been cutting hours, there are bonus' when you meet goal but that doesn't happen very often anymore. They have free health insurance for now, benefits are being cut and/or reduced. Rules are not applied evenly for everyone, there is favoritism.

FOUND IT TO BE A FUN PLACE TO WORK, EXCELLENT STAFF.
LEAD SECURITY OFFICER (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVJanuary 3, 2014
Pros: hospital provides excellent medical benefits
Cons: working short staffed, over 2, 000 patient restraints this past year
TYPICAL DAY IS STARTING THE MORNING WITH PATIENT VALUABLE COLLECTIONS FROM OUTPATIENT SURGERY'S. SECURING THE ITEMS IN THE SAFE FOR THEM UNTIL AFTER THE SURGERY PROCEDURE. DEALING WITH THE PSYCH. PATIENTS, SOMETIMES PATIENTS GET COMBATIVE WITH THE RN'S AND STAFF. SECURITY'S JOB IS TO HELP DESCALATE THE SITUATION AND PLACE THE COMBATIVE PATIENT INTO – more... RESTRAINTS IF DIRECTED BY THE RN STAFF. YOU HAVE GREAT STAFF AND COWORKERS TO WORK WITH. EVERYONE WANTS TO DO THERE JOB AND GO HOME SAFELY AT THE END OF THE DAY WITHOUT INJURY. DEALING WITH THE COMABTIVE PATIENTS IS THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB. HOSPITAL PROVIDES YOU WITH NO TOOLS IN DEALING WITH COMBATIVE PATIENTS. THEY CAN HIT, KICK, AND SPIT ON YOU, AS A STAFF MEMBER HOWEVER ADMINISTRATIONS WANTS YOU TO TAKE IT AND DETAIN THE COMBATIVE PATIENT. WORKING WITH GOOD COWORKERS IN THE SECURITY DEPARTMENT AND GOOD RN AND STAFF MEMBERS IN THE E.R. IS THE ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB. – less

Busy fast paced hospital
Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVSeptember 17, 2013
Pros: gained a tremendous amount of medical office experience.
Cons: high turn over in staff.
My years spent in the staffing office were both challenging and rewarding. Careful planning and communication would give way to a well executed plan that would allow for patient needs to be met, nurses ability to do their jobs and smooth shift runs. The most difficult part of the job was filling the "holes" in staffing due to high turn over in staff. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving at the end of the day knowing that the next shift run's need had been met and the patients as well as the nurses were taken care of. – less

Productive, High pace workplace
Credentialing Specialist (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVJuly 15, 2013
Pros: free lunch in the medical staff lounge
Cons: loose track of time, so many meetings
My typical day at work is like a revolving door happening in the office, if you're not focused with your job and not know your priorities, then you wont survive the high pace environment happening in this workplace. It's fun I love the challenges.

Valley Health System
ICU/CCU TECHNICIAN (Current Employee), Woodstock, VAJuly 1, 2013
Pros: tuition assistance, benefits, discount program
Cons: short breaks, non-existent lunch breaks. calls at 5 in the morning for coverage if someone calls out.
Valley Health System allows the employees a safe and productive place to work. However, if you want to advance to a career other than nursing, don't count on Valley Health to want to keep you as an employee. They prefer people with experience and Bachelor's Degrees, over productive employees with proven history of being a good employee.
Overall, people – more... are friendly and become part of a close knit work family quite quickly. Management is approachable and good to work for. – less

Only if you really need a job.
Former Employee (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCJune 24, 2013
Pros: front line staff genuinely care about patients
Cons: poor leadership
Highly politically charged environment that has senior management consistently focusing on how best to cover themselves instead of boldly executing their charge. The Board of Directors are either totally unaware of the "true" daily operating culture of the organization or condone the mismanagement perpetrated by it's senior leaders.
The vast majority – more... of the staff genuinely care and attempt to do the right thing. As one reviewer indicated, senior management is so insecure that the poor performers are rewarded and view as committed to the organization while the high performers are scrutinized regarding how they are able to consistently meet and exceed unreasonable expectations. While this may sound of sour grapes, make no mistake. Opportunities abound for working with some great people.
Interesting that an organization with the extensive number of highly educated people in business and healthcare management utilize so many "consultants" to guide organizational management and direction. Easier to hire a consultant and have them to blame when the desired results aren't achieved instead of charging those that are supposed to be your brightest to lead and manage an organization successfully. The organization is truly lacking of sincere leadership. – less

Watch your license
Nurse (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCMay 12, 2013
Pros: discounts
Cons: don't value staff, no raises, substandard pay, no personal time
They are very cliquish. They have low standards for work performance. They alienate certain people and praise the low performers for substandard work. If you value your license and the idea of not being sued then I suggest you keep looking.

Great place to grow!
Staff Emergency Nurse, CNS, Flight Nurse (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVMay 4, 2013
Pros: excellence in patient and staff appreciation
Cons: i can't think of any!
If you are eager to move forward, this is the place to go. Administration seems to appreciate staff for going above and beyond. Recognition awards are given out on a regular basis. In my profession kudos are so rare, but not here. Good ideas from staff are turned into successful programs that place this organization at the forefront. I would go back – more... there in a heartbeat. – less

Horrid
Rad Tech (Former Employee), SummerlinApril 18, 2013
Pros: what pros?! resigning was best part!
Cons: lack of mgmt control and supervision. they too need to go.
Sexual harassment rampant. Had to be young/youthful to even be considered by supervisors. Senior techs hid/did nothing, agency techs, students, new hires worked hard. Pay was sub-standard.

Run Run Run far from this place!!!
Licensed patient care staff (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCMarch 18, 2013
Pros: absolutely nothing
Cons: everything with the exception of a handful of nice coworkers
If you value your sanity, your license, and your self esteem, do not make the mistake of working here. Management is ridiculous. They constantly engage in inappropriate behavior, and are always looking for pathetic reasons to give disciplinary actions. And if they can find absolutely nothing to write you up for, they will make up something. It happens – more... all the time to many unsuspecting employees who failed to 'play the game'. HR is only there to protect management. If healthcare is your career choice because you value people, want to provide excellent patient care, and believe in doing the right thing, then don't ruin your compassion and belief in yourself by being overworked and unappreciated by these vicious people. – less
