Pain Management Division Chief (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 8, 2019
The Brooklyn Hospital is a place were patients are still treated like family. Good place to work but administration can improve. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see patients improve with your treatment.
Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – February 17, 2019
I enjoyed working with some people but overall the hospital is poorly run, administration are educated fools who dont care for the patients, I refuse to work inpatient because of what Ive witnessed on a geriatric floor. I admired alot of doctors but the nursing care there was shameful, your most likely get better care in a third world country.
Director, OD & TM (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – February 11, 2019
The Brooklyn Hospital Center gets a B plus rating. A good percentage of leadership was "on board" with ensuring the success of the hospital and focused keenly on the patient experience, employee satisfaction and quality outcomes.
Willingness from upper management to strive for the best outcomes
Busy Labor and Delivery unit in Brooklyn which had large residency program as well; Off-site Out patient center also busy.
woman and adolescents in labor and delivery (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 26, 2018
Out patient clinics in Williamsburg and Fort Greene were almost always nonstop. Many patients spoke Spanish exclusively, So I learned functional "Ob Spanish." Supportive Midwifery Director, but some personnel challenges in clinics remained, especially in Fort Greene center. Flow of patients not conducive to positive experience at that center. In-patient at Brooklyn Hospital was a mixed bag; lots of autonomy and if needed, MD support. But unit was run with very high intervention for laboring mothers to benefit the residents at the expense of the mothers. Nursing staff was cold and not at all collaborative. Despite inherent frustrations, had many positive delivery experiences and was able to provide attentive, top-notch Midwifery care, and train a few first-year residents as well.

Not a good place to work within the Pathology grossing lab
Pathologist's Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 17, 2018
Lab was out dated. Old system to work with. Hard to get proper tools too ,always was on a hold for non payment. I needed the accessioner to come in earlier then myself in order that I can start grossing when I come in. I would get there at 7:30 am and she would not come in until after 9.00 am. The floors were always dirty.
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 12, 2018
I enjoy working with the Brooklyn Hospital at La Providencia -location. My patience’s we very nice and I enjoy every minute there , even with the hard patients . I just love helping people and I made it my second home. I love working with my coworkers even the crazy ones that tried to make the day bad 😅. I just didn’t like management because they had there favorites ppl and made it very hard for me to stay working at this location. They wanted to move me away to another location when I already had everything there 😓. But thanks to La Providencia I learned to deal with more different cultures and front desk duties.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 16, 2018
Productive and fun work place. Staff are very are hard working and very professional. Working at the Brooklyn Hospital Center as a Patient Care Technician, improve my skills. I would love to become a RN in the near future.
Hospital has great benifits. Assis with college preperation.
OMFS Residency Coordinator/Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 29, 2018
The two departments I worked in were dedicated to having a great customer experience. I felt comfortable doing my job with little training. Hopefully that will change with the transition to EPIC. Both departments lacked great leaders but had hardworking staff -members/co-workers.
busy clinic days and moderate work on group days
not having all access to all the technology that would make our work easier and more productive
Physical Therapist Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 24, 2018
Typically A PTA at The Brooklyn Hospital is responsible for Outpatient services. When needed will cover Orthopedic, Acute care and Inpatient bedside physical therapy services, reporting to the Physical Therapist responsible for the Initial Evaluation any concerns.
Nutritionist/Outreach Coordinator (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 21, 2018
Working for this hospital on a typical day can be stressful because the supervisor does not allow one to breathe. No matter what, your best is simply not good enough. The hardest part of the job is trying to cope with strange behaviors of the supervisor. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the day is most busy because it allows one to focus on what they are doing appropriately without the supervisor constantly over one's shoulder.
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 7, 2018
The Brooklyn hospital center is a really busy place, I was doing my intership and I really learn a lot. It is a wonderful place to work because you have to be on top of the residents dentist and help the patients. This place is for people that really want to work.
Dietary Helper (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – April 6, 2018
You do your job and stay out the way managers are all great in dietary department. I would say I love this job because you can learn all parts of the kitchen from the line to being a cook. I don't enjoy the part when the admitted patience are very sick and end up dying.
Even with its shortcomings, Perhaps the best hospital in Brooklyn
Staff RN, ED and Intensive care units (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – March 28, 2018
Long history of caring for the local community, which I greatly appreciate. But that makes for a challenging environment. After working there for 12 years, then working in Manhattan for two, I can honestly say I never should have left. While the Board of Directors, the Admitting Attendings, and Nurse managment have been trying to drive this hospital to the ground for decades, there is a spirit and family feeling among the staff. My experience in the ED and ICU's have impressed on me that these two departments really live and breathe the ethos of Evidenced Based Medicine, and they've been doing it before anybody else. So, in short, if you are person who truly cares about patient care and safety, who will continue to learn and build your expertise, if you pay attention to what is being done, you will learn good medical and nursing practice at this hospital; despite the inadequate equipment, staffing, and management support.
NYSNA benefits, flex time, evidenced based medicine
understaffed, punitive management, misguided Board of Directors
