the hardest part of my job: being over loaded at times
the most enjoyable part of the job: my accomplishments: lowering my AR drastically – less
A typical day at work as a Physical Therapy Aide begins with filling oxygen tanks for the day, faxing and filing, and preparing the PT gym. Patients start being seen after breakfast and my job is to retrieve ready patients for their physical therapy session for the day. In the gym, I help the therapist with walking patients, exercises, and keeping the – more... gym sanitary at all times. I learned to be patient as a PT Aide at Wheeling Hospital, because everyone has a different healing time and you must be patient in order to see progress. My co-workers are always happy and positive with their patients which makes it a great place to come to. The hardest part of the job is seeing someone downfall in progress and/or pass away. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing progress happen and the smile on their face. – less

Extern (Former Employee), Wheeling, WV – May 18, 2014
Pros: learning new things
Cons: the externship was too short
I only got to work at Wheeling Hospital for a short time for the Externship. I worked half the time in the PACU with an RN learning what their job was. I really enjoyed learning new things and working beside an RN. The second half I worked along side a Nursing Assistant.
Coder (Former Employee), Wheeling, WV – November 20, 2013
Pros: technology advanced
Cons: very strict with employees, all business, no enjoyment.
Training and necessary tools for the job are available. Management could stand to know more about the department functions that they over see.co- workers generally get along well.Atmosphere is all business, no socializing allowed with co-workers while working. Can be very stressful.
RN (Former Employee), Wheeling, WV – September 17, 2013
Pros: 12 hour shifts.
Cons: no tuition reimbursement, supervisors have clue what's going on-ever.
Money and making sure priest get the best care are all they worry about. Several in management with little education, drs. Are allowed to treat you very poorly, other drs. Apologize for them! Unhappy staff.....the be all for all nurses right out of school.....then move on! No one from the outside will ever penetrate the administration, they would never – more... want someone to break up the good ol boys club – less
Very Un-professional place to work.. Rude co workers.
Former Employee (Former Employee), Wheeling, WV – August 31, 2013
Pros: close to home.
Cons: no breaks and to much overtime
I have been cursed up and down by co workers here. No respect for one another. Back biting and gossip is their motto. Management does not seem to care as it is reported to them. They just need warm bodies to fill shifts. Nice hospital, but as for a Catholic Hospital management only cares about the $$$. Underpaid and overworked.
Cons: healthcare for the employee's could be better.
when I go to work, I start by going in and seeing my patients and introducing myself to them and putting my number and the nurses number on the board. I then see who needs to walk or change or turn them. if they need to go on the cpm, I get help to put them on and off of the cpm. how to put on and off cpm's and using the bladder scanner, EKG's, blood – more... sugars. I like working with most of my co-workers, there are some that come to work and do nothing. working with lazy co-workers. I love working with the patients. – less
Nurses Aide (Current Employee), Wheeling, WV – November 16, 2012
Pros: working with others
Cons: night shifts and long hours
I enjoy working with others but I have no problem working on my own. I never had issues with any of my co-workers. I am a hard worker who always enjoys being busy. I'm willing to help anyone in need of help.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Wheeling, WV – May 31, 2012
Pros: new, technology
Cons: salary, nurse to patient ratio, communication between physicians and nurses
The nurse to patient ratio is too much. Left work feeling like I was just keeping my head above water. No one to help because we were all in the same boat. I left work feeling like I neglected some of my patients. Physicians are allowed to talk to nurses however they want with no recourse. The facility is nice, new & shiny but if it's not about patient – more... care and nurses not being so stressed, overworked and burnt out does it matter how pretty it is? – less
