I worked at this hospital for a good while. I will say that the benefits are good, I liked the fact that you can use your badge to pay for your food, although it can add up quick on your payroll. I wouldn't suggest doing it on a regular basis. Most of the people there are friendly and are willing to help you. The downside? YOU WILL BE OVERWORKED! The minimum amount of patients you will have will be 8. The norm is at least 12 patients. I have worked on a floor by myself with 21 patients. No other aides due to a holiday. You will be called CONSTANTLY while with other patients to tend to someone else, plus juggle vital signs, turns, charting, bathing and other various requests. There is favoritism in that place. Management will listen to your requests, but nothing will get done. There are lazy people who want to do the minimal amount of work possible and catch an attitude if you ask for help turning someone. They will write you up or fire you over minor things. The pay isn't very good. I would not EVER recommend working 3 West or 5 East. They are the worst floors! You will face burnout very quickly with this hospital!
A typical day at work would include meeting with patients, preparing them for procedures and working with physicians to do a diagnostic on the heart. Many of my co-workers were great and easy to work with. Every week, we would meet in order to find out anyone's idea's on how to make the department more effective and better for the patients.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Wilson, NC – September 29, 2015
I've earned an internship at the Wilson Medical Center. The internship was for to earn credit in the Medical Office Administration program at Wilson Community College. The duties were maintaining medical records and the front desk.
Worked nights which contrary to some beliefs, is a busy time. I learned to manage my time and with time got to know the Drs and NPs and the way they liked to do things. I learned "triage" is the name of the game at all times in the ED. I loved the environment and people I worked with. The team work in the ED was fantastic. The patients we saw were mostly very nice too.
A day at work is very busy and unbalance. There is a lot to learn and a lot of work and not enough hours in a day to finish. Teamwork is great but the hardest is keeping up with all the reports an individual have to do. The enjoyable part is the teamwork when one person don't know and others are willing to help and constantly pitching in without asking.
a lot of work, short lunches, and not enough employees
Good people to work with. Flexible Schedules Patients are good to work with. Great learning environment you can move around to different floors and departments to learn about each one which is great when you are a student
The evening started with shift change report, meet patients & check on their needs, rounding every 2hrs, charting, taking vitals, prepare patients for surgery or procedures I had a great manager, very caring.Many of the nursing staff wouldn't hesitate to answer questions or walk you through a technique. The hardest part of the job was sometimes being under staffed, but we got through it! Needless to say the best part was being able to bring comfort to someone during a tough time.
Excellent place to work. Excellent place to learn new skills. Management cares about the employees. Hardest part of job is not knowing about job security. Most enjoyable is working with the moms and babies.A typical day/night at work is come on-duty, receive report, assess your patient. Provide care of client. Pediatricians are excellent to work with.
excellent salary comparable with surrounding hospitals. pediatricians are excellent to work with
A typical day at work should include feeling like you made a difference in somebodies life. I look to have a freindly inviornment with co-workeres and encourage team work. I enjoy feeling like I've made a differance in the lives of others or feeling like I have successfully helped someone. I like to complete all tasks given to me prpperly. The hardest part of work includes when problems occure and trying to find a stratagy to fix the problem within a timely mannor.
Run away! Do not apply for this job! Until Managment changes, stay away!
Former employee (Former Employee) – Hospice – October 7, 2012
Wilson Medical as a company is a wonderful place to work. Hospice as a department is a hellish place to work. Manager is not a nice person. She is very mean and cruel to employees. There is very high turnover and she bullies employees into leaving. You will work very looonnnnng hours with little compensation. I was there for a few years and watched how she treated all employees. People are afraid of her. Employees try to avoid her at all costs. They stay away from her office, sneak up back stairs and hallways, and try not to talk to her at any means. The company is out of compliance with regulations as well. You will be walking into a mess. Be aware!
long hours, micromanagement, little compensation, tense working environment, high turnover, stress, negative work enviroment
People are very friendly but the pay is extremely low and there is no room for advancement unless you are an RN. This results in a high turnover rate. Because of the shortage in many departments it's sometimes hard to take a break. When you do get a chance to take one, they are often interrupted.
This company gave me a wonderful opportunity at a young age with job growth, offers excellent benefits for full-time employees. I enjoyed the environment and the educational classes that they offered as informational sessions
