Great management, coworkers, loved my job
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Royal Oak, MI – January 18, 2019
I was a nursing assistant at Beaumont-- Royal Oak for almost 2 years and would recommend working there as a NA if looking for a NA position at a hospital. I had great coworkers. I had an excellent nurse manager and assistant nurse manager, but I hear management on other units can be poor, I just got lucky. My manager truly made the unit a great place to work. Great patient care and interactions happen here. I learned a lot and met a lot of great doctors, nurses, NP/PAs, etc. It really feels like you are on a team at Beaumont. I would be assigned 5-8 patients per 12 hour shift. I was expected to bathe, ambulate, and care for the patient's needs (except medications--that is RN primary role). I would help patients perform ADLs and simply empathize with them as many of them are going through difficult times-- learning about a poor diagnosis and just the stress of worrying about health. I became a better person from working here.
Great Management, Great Co-workers, 12-hour shifts 3 days a week
Pay could be more competitive to other hospitals in the area.
