LPN (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 19, 2018
Arlington court is one of the best places I've ever worked. The DON doesn’t hide in her offices all day like other places I've been. Arlington really helped me grow as a nurse. I was sad to leave but my husband's job relocation moved our family out of state
Interesting patient mix. Experience. Good money
Some families were a little crazy. HR is at corporate
I worked here right out of nursing school as my first RN job. Orientation was only 3 days then I was out on my own. Very high turn over and burn out here. High patient to nurse ratios, rarely got a break and short staffed often. Management provided no help when asked and never stepped in when severely short staffed. If you were a "favorite" you always got the easier assignments and to hang out with management but if you were not management would make your life miserable. Most of the time only 1 RN on duty for the entire building so you were busy hanging IV's or doing PICC line draws but were still required to have a full assignment as well. Equipment was very old and out dated. I'm grateful for the experience to advance my career and get out of there.
Gained experience to get another job
Poor management, high nurse to patient ratios, short staffed
I have only been a nurse with this company a short while but I was welcomed with open arms to a wonderful Team! Sure there are hard days but the support from fellow nurses, STNA's, and management make it run as smooth as possible and make going to work enjoyable. It is a very family centered environment full of compassion and dedication from all staff. I'm lucky to be a part of this wonderful team!
I have worked here for 5 years and love coming to work everyday. There are days as in every job where they are rough but the team here really pull it together to ensure the best care is given. I'm proud to be a part of such a caring family and company.
Work here if you're able to do everything for every patient alone and without help. If you need help, be prepared to have something you'll do for the help, something the other person needs you to do. High school gossip and cliques are a big thing. If you look like you are drowning in your assignment, I guess you'll just drown, because no one else wants to help. Nurses, be prepared to work as aides for entire shifts sometimes, also be prepared to do aide work and nurse work in the same shift! Sound great to you?!
