LPN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 19, 2019
Hospital fast paced liked my coworkers and my environment . Everyone worked together as a team. When one nurse couldn't start the IV the other Nurse started it for her I loved my job at the hospital .but then thy started phasing LPN's out and LPN stands for Low paid Nurse we can do basically every thing the RN can except hang blood or TPN and IV drug push everything else we can do
PACU staff (Former Employee) – Belleville, IL – January 13, 2019
Great co-workers, always glad to assist in any way I could to help them. Management / Supervisor were complacent in their duties to be fair and balanced regarding Department Staff. Some had to do more than others, while the others lack of interest and laziness in the job were over looked. Management would look the other way and over extend themselves toward the slacker's in fear of being labeled or reported for unfair work ethics.
Worked for this company for about 25 years -high standards here
Telemetry RN/Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Harvey, IL – January 9, 2019
typical day - hard work with great reward What you learned- strong nursing skills - an abundance of challenges in all areas, cultural diversity, patient centered care, management expectations, workplace culture- standards were high but performance of employees did not always meet criteria Hardest part of the job- dealing with lack of diversity, unwritten rules and traditions Most enjoyable-saving lives. This company hired me as a new graduate in 1988 and I left after a year and came back to work there at Ingalls as and agency nurse for a year and was again rehired
great pay and medical benefits
401K did not meet expectationsinthe area of match program
If not having to relocate for my husbands job many years ago, I would still be there. Management was great, pay package was excellent. The Call was split up into specialties. The cafeteria food was awesome.

Surgical Technologist (Current Employee) – Shiloh, IL – January 1, 2019
Memorial is an excellent hospital to work for. So far there is a lot of team work dynamic and the culture of the institution lines up with my moral compass. A typical day on the job will include scrubbing, checking off both operating rooms, stocking, checking off rooms and nursery warmers within those rooms to ensure the patients both mom and baby are well cared far.
Assumed the role of Charge Nurse periodically (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – December 27, 2018
understaffed most of the time. management was not supportive or approachable. new nurses were usually thrown under the bus. plus side- smaller, more intimate hospital with good chances for advancement.
Nursing Supervisor, RN (Former Employee) – York, PA – December 20, 2018
I enjoyed working at Memorial Hospital many years ago. It is a small community hospital and it had a family feel to it. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. It was my first job as a Nursing Supervisor and this was a big change for me. I developed leadership skills in this role and this has helped me to gain more confidence in my nursing career. I did enjoy working weekends at the time but now it is difficult for me with my family.
A typical day I would receive a job list such as meeting with business personnel and directing them as to what needs to be done concerning repairs.I learned how to collaborate with other employees and get jobs done.(fixing leaks,painting,repairing structures,replacing fixtures,etc.)The workplace culture was concerned with getting things done with not much levity.The hardest part was not allowing the special needs kids from interfering with work.The most enjoyable part was completing the job list on schedule.
Good management, favorable work hours and employee camaraderie
