Work days are mostly busy, some days are steady Employees work together, good teamwork I have learned it is hard to loose someone I have learned is great to take care of someone and get them back to health. to see them go home. Try to keep the workplace clean I have not seen any racism Hardest part of job- moving heavy equipment, beds , lifting heavy patients. Hardest part of job not getting to sit down during whole shift Most enjoyable part of job nursing patients back to health
Erlanger has excellent opportunity for learning and different experiences. However, having adequate staffing is a constant battle. Working without enough staff causes stress and poor quality of work due to lack of time
I would possible work at Erlanger on different type unit .
Medical Unit RN (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – June 28, 2018
The unit I worked on was very hard ,no support from the staff most of the nurse was very young and was all about themselves and they formed clicks . No team work and they thought they knew everything about nursing and bedside manners . No diversity at Erlanger now ,no people of color or experience in charge .
Received a towel for nurses day .Small discount in cafeteria
Sometimes 2 10 minutes break and 30 minute lunch break per shift

Don't really understand the cost of implementing an EMR, we have struggled with getting the necessary equipment since go-live. We still have several areas on paper and really need to get them the appropriate equipment.
If you are an employee at Erlanger, that carries a bit of prestige with it, I started my career at Erlanger, and I wouldn't mind retiring there. It is a teaching facility, and has many opportunities for advancement
PSR - Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – June 19, 2018
Employee bullying issues not dealt with at all. If employee is buddy buddy with supervisor they are never in the wrong no matter the situation. Complaints only investigated from one side. Closed groups. Hard to fit in. Actually a relief to not be working there any longer. (Physician Group Office)
the facility has many departments and units that made a typical workday very busy. Having worked there for many years, was able to move around in my position and enjoyed the last eight years working with pts with COPD in the pulmonary lab. management was usually changing frequently which was sometimes frustrating. the most enjoyable part of the job was the staff that I worked with.
The environment I work in is interesting to say the least. on a typical day I could come in contact with 15 to 30 patients. I have learned that you have to have a good attitude and show empathy for people.

Erlanger Health system. It's bright spot in the night is T.C.Thompson's Children's Hospital who have garnered their own reputation for excellence in the service of children. Without a doubt the best and hardest job I've had in my career. I would easily go through it all again to work there.
I worked at this position as a PRN physical therapist on the weekends covering for full time employees. I was not compensated benefits, due the PRN status of this job, but the per hour rate was very fair and really enjoyed management in this hospital and department.
