Financial Counselor (Former Employee), Morgantown, WV – August 4, 2013
Pros: the staff of medical professionals i worked with helped me in my job.
Cons: no upward mobility.
I worked with patience who did not have insurance work on finding methods to handle paying for their medical treatment. I worked with patience who had addictions and were in the hospital for help voluntarily as well as involuntarily.
Working at a trauma hospital in the operating room was fascinating. I learned and experienced so much being there. Our manager was always assisting any way she could to keep you comfortable and happy there. I was sent through all of the rotations from ENT, Ortho, General, Gyne, and robotic room. The hardest part was leaving the job. Unfortunately the – more... drive was getting to me, so I needed a position closer. – less
Great place to work! Continuing education, patient-centered care, evidence-based practice, and patient safety and well being are highly valued.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Morgantown, WV – March 15, 2013
This hospital has been a great place to start my career in the nursing world. The staff and patients are all receptive to new nurses and students. Preventative treatment and patient education is highly stressed at this facility. If you want to be proactive rather than a reactive RN and aspire to be more than a "box-checker" nurse, I would recommend – more... this hospital. It seems like the staff genuinely cares about the patients they care for. – less
My time in this department was very educational. I like my job and the people I worked with very much. The hardest part of my job was watching patients get worse. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be enteracting with the patoents. I learned a lot about computed tomography ni the years I worked there. I would say that management needs a – more... little work. I overall loved my job here. – less
Cardiac Step-Down Unit/Floor: A typical day is spent providing care to my patients which includes but not limited to: completing physical assessments and all required nursing care for the specific patients I'm to care for on each particular day. I also collaborate with physicians and members of other interdisciplinary teams, oversee patient care technicians – more... and complete necessary documentation and provide patient education.
In addition to learning many medical and nursing elements by working in the teaching hospital setting, I have learned the most from my patients with regard to life in general. The best reward is having a patient give me a hug and tell me how important my care was to him/her.
My direct manager is available for any type of discussion. She is proactive, fair, knowledgeable and dependable. It is a pleasure and a privilidge to work for her.
My co-workers are amazing. They have become my work "family". They are the best group of co-workers I have ever worked with - caring, dependable, available when needed. We work as a team and help each other in the work place as well as personally.
The hardest part of the job is when a patient I have been caring for has passed away.
The most enjoyable part of the job are the patients. – less
