Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Wilson, NC – August 13, 2016
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!
Most RN's are helpful, decent lunch option
Lazy staff, patient overload, tense environment
