RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Fort Bragg, CA – January 18, 2013
Few surgeons, so more medical patients than surgical. Many patients with chronic disease flare-ups, end of life care, and those transitioning from living at home to skilled care. Co-workers are great with positive esprit de corp. Management is recently changed at multiple levels of the heirarchy. New Director of Nursing onboard for almost a month, hasn't introduced herself to nurses or held a staff meeting. Rural area, so variations in census impact hours available to work. Current low census means using PTO to cover hours for the week. Cross training to other units has been available in the past, but may not be in future. Computer charting is newly installed and learning curve still in effect. Electronic records program selected is a Next-Gen product but seems more outpatient than inpatient based. Hospital going into bankruptcy court so future mission/services of hospital is uncertain. Work 12 hour shifts. Schedule is finalized on a monthly basis, being posted on the 20th of the month prior. Some nurses have fixed schedules, others to fill in the holes.
education hours, decent pay, good benefits, beautiful area
frequency of oncall time, using pto to make up time biweekly, bankruptcy may affect benefits

Ultrasound Technician (Current Employee) – Radiology – July 4, 2019
Some people forget where they came from and fail to be team players. Most of the crew is awesome, however as like in any job there are people whom look down on others. Not to sure how much longer this place will be open. I am looking for another job. This hospital is not worth it keep looking. There is nothing here for entertainment the weather is nice but rains very often. MCDH will be closing their doors or another company coming in to take over which means everything will be changing. Cost of living is horrible.

No complaints! Fair share of work politics and awesome coworkers! Situated in beautiful Fort Bragg, CA w the Pacific Ocean as it’s backdrop. Nice place to get away from the hustle an bustle of busy city life.
