Front offic assistant and scheduler (Current Employee) – Springfield, OR – February 12, 2018
If not for the lack of advancement opportunities I would gladly stay here until retirement. I had also hoped that my current supervisor would be looking to find opportunities for her employees, instead of holding them in the positions they are proficient at.
Staff RN Float Unit FT Nights (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – January 22, 2018
Always understaffed, management is very impersonal, terrible work schedule, lots of turnover, lots of admits, but lots of learning as well. You're running for 12 hours straight, and the culture especially on NOC shift is against breaks because there is too much to do.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – January 24, 2017
a typical work day was sometimes frustrating due to the workload and whether or not we were full staffed or not. I learned the objectives and duties that were needed in health care. Management was great, had no problems whatsoever. Workplace was sometimes stressful but mostly fun and was glad to be there. Hardest part of the job was experiencing things I've never experienced before. the most enjoyable part was getting to meet people and employees that you would never get to meet.
Physical Therapist (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – January 15, 2017
The management was terrible when i was there. It use to be a non profit organization, but it all changed after they were sold on wall street. I would not work there again, despite some nursing staff being awesome.
Patient Access Specialist (Current Employee) – Springfield, OR – April 26, 2016
Should come as no surprise that stress and working in a hospital go hand in hand; however, stress and coworkers/job environment in your department alone is incorrigible. There is a strong lack of leadership from management and team leads, very childish acts when you're sick or have a family issues. Anytime you have a minor slip up on something it is an automatic write up. The place and other departments are wonderful, and do like my job, but strongly dislike the crew and leaders of that department. Doesn't flow like it should, and people will always try and undermine you.
Director Case Management (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – September 8, 2015
This was a for profit hospital and was run that way. The bottom line was the focus. Staff were difficult not open to change or learning. There was hard work and very little enjoyment. I would not encourage anyone to work there.
Small community hospital with good reputation for the care provided
RN Chart Auditor (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – June 2, 2015
A small community funded hospital that has been purchased by large business corporation. The transition from a non profit to for profit has been challenging. The services provided are far superior now that we have a large parent organization.
I'd be still there if it weren't for two vindictive and malicious Discharge Planners (out of 4) and a couple of senior clinical RNs. I worked in most areas of the hospital and was kept busy in a variety of departments throughout the day. The entire inpatient therapy team was awesome and fun to work with as were many of the clinical RNs with whom I still keep contact either by email or FB. Hardest part of the job was working as a team with some of the senior RNs mentioned above. The enjoyable part was dealing with my patients, my therapy colleagues, the staff doctors and most of the clinical RNs who were not so senior and many of the hard-working CNAs. I enjoyed many from all departments in the hospital and I was known to many.
a great team overall; benefits !!! and working environment
clerk (Former Employee) – spfld – January 17, 2014
When I first came in everyone was nice. Then, i mentioned something that the head lady didn't like. She never said a word. She proceeded to load me down with stuff. Then she wanted to know how old I was? This went on for 10 weeks. They are "cliquey" and don't know how to treat co-workers. The public is safe, here. They are the bread and butter, so to speak.
Productive with high encouragement from co-workers.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Springfield, OR – August 2, 2012
I enjoyed working at the hospital. My managers, however, didn't make some days enjoyable. They have a bad reputation for treating the employees poorly (myself not excluded). They did not look into bad rumors about me, until they were given no other choice to find out that the rumors was false. They were unethical when it came to employees' rights.
When I did not have to deal with those managers, my days were enjoyable for I was able to keep busy and productive.
