Staff RN/Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – February 27, 2018
Have some staffing issues that are ignored and do not want to pay to keep an security person in house. Pay is not going up and is low for this market yet do not want to give raises. Do not deliver on promises that they make.
I enjoyed working on the weekend option program and being able to stay home with my daughter when she was born until she went to school
Part-time nurse orientation program (Former Employee) – Flowood, MS – January 11, 2018
River Oaks used to be physician owned which was about half the time I was there. After it was sold, it became just another hospital and quality of care seemed to decrease. I was fortunate to be able to work just 2 days a week and be paid for full-time while my daughter was small. I also had time during the week to work part-time in the nursing orientation program.
Weekend option position with benefits and considered full-time. Paid 36 hours for working 24
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – July 20, 2017
It was a pleasure to be at the aid of people needing the services our facility provided. My first experience was expediting Maintenance Technicians to correct problems within the facility and keeping logs on equipment and maintenance procedures. There were people of all shapes, sizes and cultures each having his/her uniqueness. The hardest part of the job was maintaining and updating the Operational Manuals required. The most enjoyable was seeing newborns, and working with a genuinely caring group.

Organized medical record charts, Greeted and interacted with patients, families, visitors, and guests. Responsible for completion of assignments, demonstrating reliability and dependability while utilizing cost-effective measures with a positive attitude.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – River Ridge, LA – March 12, 2017
This place is ran like a shelter. Dirty. Housekeeping and Maintenance are a joke. Many of the staff members are extremely lazy, claim to be former addicts, or suffering from some psych disorder of their own. The longer they work there, the worse their practice and ethics are. There is a fast turnover because the "good" nurses leave quickly, so you are stuck with the old garbage. Unorganized place. Staff/Management treat their favorite employees differently. Administration is cold and non-existent after your orientation. This is a good place to lose or constantly be threatened with any type of license that you may have. The favorites have no problem relating this to you daily. You are often left in dangerous staffing situations. Many nurses lose their license here. Never lost mine because I left due to inadequate staffing, poor administration, and rude coworkers. Be smart and stay away. Save your time, energy, and the heartache.
Free canned food. You can get benefits taken out of your check
Dangerous, inadequate staffing, low pay, lack of management
Favorite nurses get to pick their unit. Mostly everyone is unhappy with staffing. It is just ridiculous. You can not move from your assigned shift once you start, so you have to remain there with an unhappy or exhausted feeling. High staff turnover. Oldies stay, however they are the worst employees at the place. Get rid of the lazy, breastfed employees who have had their clique for years and you may "begin" to start to clean up your so called hospital. Amazing that this place is Joint Commission Accredited, because DHH would shut this place down if they saw behind the scenes.
Job Work/Life Balance
Good place to work
HIM Analyst (Former Employee) – Flowood, MS 39232 – January 26, 2017
I enjoyed working at River Oaks. Most days were very busy, which is what I like. I worked with a great group of girls that knew their jobs and did them well. We all got alone great.
Psch Tech (Former Employee) – Harahan, LA – November 29, 2016
While working for this so-call hospital, I noticed how the majority of the RN nursing stall chose who, what, when and where they wanted to work. The majority of the RN's didn't have much respect for the patients. For the most part, the nurses stayed in the office after giving report or medicines. The psych counselors where often left on their own, after being trained for a few days of orientation. Management pretty much didn't exist, because like I said the awful nurses were the ones running the show. This facility is more like a paid shelter, that really don't care about the patients needs. Ask yourself why is there a high turnover rate?
Nice Workplace and alot of Opportunties to learn more
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Flowood, MS – July 18, 2016
Working at the hospital was truly an amazing experience for me. Everyone there is so nice and talkative. Everyday your seeing a new face walk through the door. The place is so big every floor you go on you learn something new. You don't ever have to worry about being safe because security is watching the place 24/7 and also walking around. All over the hospital is an awesome place to work
