Front Office Manager/Financial Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bayonne, NJ – April 16, 2018
Working for Carepoint has its ups and downs. If it weren't for my management team, I don't think I would have stayed with the company for this long. The management with this company is so supportive and understanding that they make the work bearable. If there were room for growth i would probably have a better review. Some of the other workers from different depts in the facility seem so angry daily it gives off a really bad vibe and that can leave a terrible effect to other staff and patients. Again, if it weren't for my managers in my particular dept, I definitely wouldn't stay working for Carepoint.
Working at Bayonne Medical Center is very stressful. The pay is low and there is no room for career advancement. With all the tasks put on one nurse you are unable to care for your patients. You spend most of your time documenting and scanning medications. You also spend time fixing mistakes that other nurses make. It is time for a career change for me.
Bayonne Medical Center was a typical medical hospital that served numerous patients for multiple tests throughout the facility. BMC's management was good to a point. If they had some beef with you, you better watch out.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Bayonne, NJ – March 9, 2017
I was able to be a support system for doctors,nurses and other staff with every day tasks. I learned how to work as a team during my time at Bayonne Medical Center. I was also able to build on my nursing career and learned a lot about what the staff as a whole does in a hospital.
VOLUNTEER (Former Employee) – Bayonne, NJ – February 15, 2017
I have volunteered here for four years and I loved every second of it. I have been able to gain experience in many parts of the hospital, from patient filing to patient care. Everyone here has such a positive attitude.
The employees form clicks and management reinforced this behavior. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Everyone thinks they are a boss! History repeating itself again. Typical nurse eating their young.
I'm a dietitian who sees patients daily and provides diet education. Department is not always cooperative mostly with recent management that has left. Gained experience from in and outpatients. Working with same FTE given a busier workload and no coverage is challenging some days. Co-workers - not all are cooperative within department itself or not always initially friendly to new employees as I once was myself. Cannot clock in earlier than 6 minutes to start of shift, nor can clock out past 5 minutes post shift. Staff can get written up even 1 minute late clocking in or out. Raises are poor some years just .5% for the year. 401K sucks just 1% match.
poor raise, vacation sick benefits difficult to take at times
ICU NPR (nurse-patient ratio) 1:3 Charge nurse with no patient. I learned how to document electronically Management are aproachable Co-wokers are mostly seniors, family oriented. Hardest part of the job is dealing with equipment that don't work. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with our clients that are mostly part of the Bayonne community, close net.
receive many treats from vendors, families and MDs
