Last assignment was in medical surgical floor that handled dialysis patients and orthopedic patients mostly. I left for 2 years approximately and returned to work in step down PACU and employee health.
Director, Counselor, and Educator- (Former Employee) – Hialeah, FL – February 22, 2018
The location of PGH was excellent because it was walking by. Management didnt particular care for their employees because it belongs to a very large company. I started with a very low salary and it takes years for you to get a raise. I never had a problem with them because I was very well know by everyone. They are constantly asking me to go back.

This hospital has changed so much during the years that it is incredible. It is a great resource for the community for their healthcare needs and even though I am longer there, I was very proud to be associated with the team at PGH.
Understaffed to the point of compromising patient safety on a daily basis. No help from administration. High patient acuity with patients who are critical and do not meet criteria to be on our floor. 1:7 patient ratio but because it also serves as an observation unit there are a high amount of admissions and discharges and so you can have anywhere between 6-10 patients a shift. CNA's are 1:13 ratio but again, they can have anywhere between 13-18 patients a shift. There is no loyalty and no camaraderie.

Work hard. Co-workers get you through the day. Doctors can be a bit tough till they get to know you as a nurse provided you are efficient and knowledgeable. You learn alot since it is a teaching hospital.
Employees work really hard and they are well unrecognized. They care about the patients but the have limited resources and a heavy load of patients per employee. Administration is hard core, and that reflects in the poor retention of good employees
Medical Assistant/ Receptionist (Current Employee) – Hialeah, FL – March 12, 2018
Stressful environment been there 10 years room to climb the latter. Management all depends on who you work for. Culture 95% Hispanic. Hardest but of the job administration does nothing for its employees no appreciation what so ever. I love my co workers that's what has gotten me through
I did what I had to do and now I am leaving. I like a lot of the workers and culture. my spanish greatly improved. The cafeteria needs to be improved, PT focused care and PT experience need to be improved.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Hialeah, FL – June 28, 2018
Very team oriented employees,very good family oriented environment.Good management,nice family members and visitors,good cafeteria,always options of different things to eat and accomodating to everyone
Our typical work day is busy as expected in any Hospital. The majority of the Culture in the Community we serve is Hispanics. It is a great place to work as long as you have team members in the department.

A teamwork, family environment, great management. the culture of the workplace is phenomenal, although it was more of a Hispanic culture the environment was so welcoming and pleasant, it was very soothing going to work.
Hospital Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Hialeah, FL – May 23, 2018
I had a chance to see at first hand how the patients were treated and quid tours their rehabilitation I was part of this because I was in charge of putting in the system all the PT needed including their fallow ups with doctors outside the facility.
