managers come and go. not trained well. anything goes. favoritism.

"Good old boys club" should be their motto. you have to be on of those pretend happy people to work there. They promote patient satisfaction so they can get paid by the PRC scores. They shove it down your throat. They pile more and more on you daily. We are now responsible for our time cards. 0730 meetings mandatory at least once a month at the hospital, even if its your day off you are expected to go. Almost impossible to get any vacation time off. Understaffed. outdated buildings to work in. etc etc etc
CMA (AAMA) (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – November 28, 2018
unless you are part of a clique, born and raised in Morris, or are amazing at overlooking scarey health code violations, you will get bullied, taunted, talked about and used. Management is useless. HR could care less. Worst company I’ve ever worked at.
Everything about Management and scheduling work hours.
ED Tech/Clerk (Current Employee) – Morris, IL – August 21, 2018
I work as a Patient Access representative in the Emergency room. My position requires compassion, empathy and the ability to stay calm during emergencies. I enjoy helping others during their difficult time and I have the skills necessary to get the job done in the most compassionate way possible. My position as a patient access representative includes registering patients in the emergency room and some technical components. I also process co-payments and run reports per department needs.
Overall a good place to work but not if you are looking for critical cases or a fast pace
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – February 22, 2018
Morris hospital is a community hospital that is friendly and a good working environment. A lot of patients are transferred out to other hospitals depending on level of care. The ICU is more like a step down unit. There is not much room for advancement because it is a small hospital and the managers tend to stay in there postions.
Small community hospital this is friendly with caring staff
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Morris, IL – February 6, 2018
i absolutely loved it when i first started, but i quickly found that everyone just talks about one another and management doesn’t know how to talk to employees. They all seemed so nice and helpful when i was training. but as soon as you’re not, it’s like they switch on you. i’ve never had an worse experience than this place, management doesn’t know how to communicate to employees, even if you tell them the issue, they brush it off. they definitely pick favorites. i don’t suggest working here. the only good thing is, the pay. but you could find better.
Not a supportive, civil,organized department. DRAMA, RUMORS, LIES, you get taken advantage of. Manager has favorites and if your not one your wrong.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Ambulatory care – November 21, 2017
Lack of teamwork, poor management who do not know policies and would rather make half up or interrupt it only there way. Manager enables, starts/participates in drama, does nothing about work place bullying and majority of department would rather watch you crash and burn then offer a hand. If your new or not one of the 'good ol boy' fan clubs, beware and trust no one. They may smile, but they will eat you alive. Couple of excellent nurses and technicians. If your told something or have concerns, get it in an email, if not it's like it didn't happen. Other departments appear to have more of a team player, civil supportive work environment. Also if you would like to take vacations, just go ahead and forget about it. Only one person allowed to be off at a time. So until your there for 20 years no summer, spring options available. Do not expect consistent schedule or hours, no planning due to not knowing what time you work until the day before and if you late shift, you may be there all night. Good luck.
Benefits, few weekends/holidays
Not knowing what time you work or where you will be until day before, unequal work load distribution, lack of supportive, friendly environment. Very stressful.
Radiology Technologist cat scan (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – June 10, 2017
Bad experience with other employees and doctors gossiping. Employees secretly dating and overall unprofessional behavior. Upper management were like deers in headlights. Witnessed a lot of bad care and patient management in emergency room. Avoid this place like the plague!
Benefits were good
Bad environment overall. Lots of unproffessional and small minded country hicks.
Speech and Language Pathologist (Current Employee) – Morris, IL – June 8, 2017
This organization allows its employees to exercise compassion and excellent care 100% of the time. The culture is one of excellence and teamwork all working for a common goal which is to improve the health of area residents.
NUTRITION SERVICES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – April 3, 2017
The hospital is filled with many jobs so depending on your field there is something for everyone. The food department I feel is geared more to middle aged women and older, women looking for a job after all kids have gone to school or need something to do because they are bored at home. I would not recommend for women or men who are fresh out of culinary school because it is not demanding enough to the skills you obtained from school.
Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – February 26, 2017
Applied for a selective field in hospital setting in April and only in October finally got a reply, via email, acknowledging my application and that the position was filled. That is sad. Upper management operates in a bubble. This facility will not survive with the current culture. Diversity of staff only encourages growth, opportunities and challenges. Same-old same-old does just that - stops growing and achieving. What does Morris Hospital strive for? Putting up a fence around itself or opening doors to make itself awesome and reknowned, to stand tall?
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – January 10, 2017
Very clean facility, friendly environment with emphasis on quality and teamwork. I had frequent interactions with many employees in almost all departments and was always impressed by the helpfulness and cheerfulness I encountered. Worked there for almost seven years before moving out of the area, but often wish I was still there.
Nutrition Services (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – October 5, 2016
Do not work in nutrition services. Management is poor and will lie to your face. High turn around. Too much work piled on for too few people. The list goes on. Although, the kitchen staff is a great bunch, they help make the days a little more enjoyable. And the benefits aren't too bad. But don't count on transferring to another department or hoping to move up. You're pretty much stuck where you're at unless you know someone.
Technical Support (Current Employee) – Morris, IL – July 27, 2016
If you were not born, raised and now living in the community, you are not welcomed into their Cult-like environment. Administration and some managers are professional liars. They look you straight in the eyes and lie. I do have to say that most co-workers are great to work with, but beware of day shift personnel being friendly and then have a target on your back. A lot of issues in many departments. Managers and Administration do not care about your personal well being and concerns in the departments. They do not want to hear it, although it is recommended you go to your manager first regarding any concerns, then you are looked at as making waves, instead of trying to implement a better work flow. You either shut your mouth, or "Get off the bus." as one Administrator states, verbatim. I would not recommend working for this company. Do not go over your managers head, or yours will be cut off! Many new RN recruits are gone between their 90 day probation period and 6 months. This is an indication that there is something severely wrong. Morris Hospital recently lost staff members that were employed many years, due to poor Administration and Management problems, and scheduling issues. Be prepared to not have many weekends off for family. Staff has to find their own coverage to have a scheduled weekend off, according to hospital policy. No vacation days allowed on weekend, unless you find your own coverage.
Most co-workers are great through out the facility.
Administration and some managers do not care about you personally.
