I enjoyed helping the patients and liked working as a team. I felt what I did mattered. I liked my co-workers. The management kind of treated BHU like the red-headed step-child though. We were part of the ED but left out of important communication- like manditory meetings!
Excellent company and a lot of great people working there. Outstanding benefits, team approach, dedicated, hard-working and very caring company.
I would go back in a heart beat after the Covid-19 is over.
Caring for hospitalized pediatric patients and their families is very rewarding. Education to the family is a priority in this population . In addition to patient care, standards of work, policies, procedures, protocols, ethics, are just as important to complete accreditation and patient safety daily.
People skills are so important but not everyone has them. Managers don't reward extra effort by staff. I have seen many coworkers quit over the years because they felt frustrated 😞. The job description is ever changing and hard to adjust to the increased demands. You will be FORCED to take a flu shot every year, if you refuse they fire 🔥you!
This is a wonderful place to work. Many of the employees have been here 15 years or longer. I have enjoyed meeting all the wonderful people who work here over the years. I have been employed by Akron Childrens for the past 13 years and prior to this I was employed here for 9 years before I had my own children.
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing children get better. Although working as a nurse can be stressful, the workplace culture is unlike any other hospital. The faculty are welcoming and encouraging.
I love ACH and I want to stay here- but, specific departments have people in management who drive good employees away. I would still recommend getting your foot in the door if you can. if you don't like your department, try to transfer out after one year.
I worked for the home care division for 21years. The work environment changed drastically over the years. It became more corporate based and not about the families and patients but about money. It became a hostile environment. The work ethic declined and overall attitudes became toxic
