ROP Volunteer (Former Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA – June 26, 2018
I enjoyed volunteering at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital because it showed me the responsibilities I would have encountered had I went into the medical field. The employees at the hospital were very informative and attentive to me during my time there, and taught me many things about the medical field and how to make patients feel as comfortable as possible during their stay.
Working with the patients and helping them in a tme of need.
Seeing patients in pain, or not being able to help as much as i'd lke.

Great place to work with innovative technology. The management was good and worked well with employees. The hospital was an overall great place to work and I would still be there if it weren't so far from home.
The most enjoyable part of the Job is getting things done right the first time.

Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA – May 12, 2018
This place has the worst atmosphere of anyplace I’ve ever worked. You’re expected to continuously maintain a high work level even when the people around you are getting fired. You just absorb their responsibilities and do it all in the same amount of time.
Nice people to work with.
Don’t get used to the nice people, they’re going to get fired.
Buyer (Former Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA – March 29, 2018
I loved working here. While it can be stressfull, its a hospital. They all are. My only complaint would be that there is a very DISTINCT line in between management and the average workers. Some dont even make eye contact with you which can make work a little disappointing.
LVN (Current Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA – February 15, 2018
Unfortunately this place could really be great if it wasn't the typical "who you know" atmosphere. Most managers are inadequate at best, and the company hires from within. Not from within the company but within the family. If you work here and have a sister, brother, mother, cousin, in-law that works here to and as soon as your kids graduate high school their guaranteed a job too--YOU'RE HIRED! Most employees have no formal education and have been put in positions like pawns on a chess board. Due to the high population of LVN's, this facility allows LVN's to be in management. This is the only place that I have ever seen this happen. So in short, some LVN's feel they are better than other LVN's and other medical staff. Most of the nurses that come out of the local college are not trained properly, and have NO true critical skills, I know because I am one of those who attended in town. I feel that if I went to places like LA, or San Diego, I would be completely lost and I guess that is why so many people here stay here. They can't make it anywhere else. God only knows why I came back. Everyone in Ridgecrest wants to be a nurse but many lack the critical thinking skills and personable, approachable personality that patients need. On top of everything else, no paid holidays. You have to use your PTO to take a federal holiday off.
Personal Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA – January 25, 2018
Your hours are usually different every week, and things can happen unexpectedly. I enjoy having the opportunity to help individuals physically, so this job is perfect for that. The hardest part of the job would be having going from 40+ hours down to 9 hours the next week and not having somewhat consistency. Seeing my clients is what brightens my day.
A very friendly environment that encouraged learning
RISK MANAGEMENT INTERN (Current Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA – December 10, 2017
The Risk Management Department at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital has great workers who are supportive of each other. I was able to learn a lot from them, and they were all very helpful and dedicated to their work.
Front Office Resource Lead/ Medical Records Clerk (Current Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA 93555 – September 3, 2017
I enjoy working at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital. I really love helping others and working as a team with co-workers. I enjoy the smiles and the team work. Everyone smiles as you pass through the halls. It has been a great place to work. I hope to continue to work and grow with Ridgecrest Regional Hospital.
RN (Current Employee) – Ridgecrest, CA 93555 – August 16, 2017
It has a culture of backstabbing and no support. If you disagree with the CEO you will be terminated no question. It does not promote advancement unless you are an intern of the CEO . The culture is one of intimidation and retaliation.
