Registered Nurse- Emergency Department (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – November 13, 2018
Available for advancement to a certain degree, Management not very involved with employees in the clinical setting. Pay is competitive for the area, but not enough for the job title. Patient ratios for nurses is less than desirable, but team help is always available. Great first place to work.
Hardly an breaks for clinical colleagues, not enough management present.
Bedside nurse in Level III NICU (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – November 5, 2018
I loved my NICU career at LVHN and had tremendous growth as a nurse. It certainly helped me grow from a fairly new nurse to a seasoned nurse. I was able to raise my children and work full time with ease. The NICU at LVHN is a busy progressive NICU and I had many learning experiences to carry with me as I relocated.
Management and staffing was proficient and a very close knit team.
The winters could be challenging to get to and from work but I never missed work for weather.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Hazleton, PA – November 1, 2018
Management at the hospital is fully aware of nurses being cut throat, eating their young, lack of teamwork among peers and lack of support from management. Physicians (the very little they can keep) treat the nurses like garbage and get away with it on a daily basis. I attempted to reach out to my manager multiple times verbally and then decided to complete in writing due to no trust, honesty or integrity and I was blown off. My manager was fully aware of how staff treat co-workers and did nothing. You are expected to take on case loads that should never be aloud. None of this happens at LHV Main Hospital, Hazleton is just the money maker for them with no improvements except paint!
everything else especially: staff are cut throat and will eat their young

ED Tech (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – October 19, 2018
I was so happy when I first started out as a tech in the ED. I loved my job, but that all changed not even a year into it. I was hired with my nose pierced and for the first year no one had a problem with it. In fact there were a lot of other employees with them as well. Next thing I know, I'm being suspended without pay for violating the policy, all the while everyone else continues to work without being reprimanded. Doctor's were fun to work and most of the nurses were great as well. There were a few that would be nice to your face but then turn around and backstab. For the amount of work you do, they don't pay enough. I was working full time 12 hour shifts and still wasn't making enough to cover all my bills. They didn't offer over time. I worked my butt off and did my best to go above and beyond. In the end I ended up resigning my position after management and HR tried to say "I didn't smile enough" some of my co workers felt they had to "walk on eggshells" around me, which I knew wasn't true. I had many co workers approach me and tell me i was one of their best techs and they loved following after me because they knew everything would be stocked and completed. I constantly felt targeted by management and think if they would hire different managers it would be a much better place to work.
Catered free lunches at times, working with some great nurses
Management sucked, short breaks (sometimes none at all)
Billing Clerk (Former Employee) – Pottsville, PA 17901 – October 14, 2018
Originally I worked to the Pottsville Hospital now known as LVHN. Fellow employees were always helpful and fun to work with. I had a great manager that was supportive. Working independently was encouraged and I learned a lot.

I could not understand their hiring practices for management. They preferred clinical people with no experience versus non-clinical people with experi
Oncology Clerical Specialist (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – October 7, 2018
The pay was abysmal. We were expected to know chemotherapy regiments and I would have made more money had I gone to work at a fast food restaurant. I will say that the doctors were amazing to work with. I admired all of them. The nurses were great, too, as was most of the staff. That is why they give excellent care. The people who work with the patients are wonderful.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA 18105 – September 21, 2018
They are very tough on new nurses, but they do offer a lot of education. They have multiple training opportunities that offer CCE at no cost to the participant. They also offer tuition reimbursement if you pan on furthering your outside education.
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – September 19, 2018
you are rated for raises according to your performance which I feel is good, however, there are time that I feel you are not allow to voice your opinion without being reprimanded. There is no such thing as freedom of speech. If someone would to write a bad review and others happen to agree with it you get a call from HR. I have seen this happen many times. Employees afraid to speak up for fear of their jobs. They feel management does not have their back and they would be thrown under the bus in a second. For the good part they do offer tuition reimbursement and encourage growth.

Very short staffed with terrible nurse to patient ratios
Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – September 17, 2018
Great place to work but not enough staff. Nurses take up to 7 patients most of the time due to lacking staff. Tech partners are also short staffed, some units will only have 1 overnight or none at all.
