ICU Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 28, 2018
This organization is great for education. As it is a teaching hospital, there are always things you can learn and participate in. ICU nurses have a lot of autonomy here and the environment is very collaborative with the doctors. Great benefits with amazing healthcare coverage!
Special Procedures Technologist (Former Employee) – Radiology – October 10, 2018
I enjoyed working at the U of U. They seem to have the best and state of the art equipment for the area. Physicians are fantastic and teach. Call schedule can be a bit dicey and the snow can make it difficu.lt
Registered Nurse, BSN (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 2, 2018
Overall, I am very satisfied with working at The U. I love my job, my coworkers are extremely helpful and supportive. Management is somewhat absent, but if you're performing your job well you won't need interventions from management. Though I will say that management does make themselves available if you need them, day or night. My only complaint is that RN's [and most other medical staff] are paid well below the national average per hour. With the increasing cost of living in SLC, I'm finding it difficult to stay in Utah longterm. Utah overall pays nurses less than neighbhoring states. However, The U is a great place to work.
Health Benefits, 401K, the collaboration of staff, everyone is very helpful
Urgent care greenwood clinic externship (Former Employee) – Midvale, UT – September 28, 2018
although it was only a 160 hour internship, I loved it. I have decided that this career is my passion and I wish to purse this job. I learned so much from this clinic and I feel confident with my skills now as a NCMA.
Medical Assistant Lead (Former Employee) – Outpatient Clinics – September 26, 2018
I was here for about 4 years and I absolutely loved it. Management was great and co workers were awesome. Managements cares about how you are doing, which you don't get everywhere. You get a pretty decent raise every year.
Case Management Assistant (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 3, 2018
Coordinate everything needed for patients at discharge.
I have learned tons in the last 34 years. Admit & discharge process. Coordination of scheduling appointments, home care, skilled facilities, dme, transport, etc and hope to continue learning.
The hardest part of my job is trying to help a patient and everything falling apart on the discharge plan, this is a disappointment to the patients. When this happens we really have no control over the situation.
The best part of my job is when long term patients are going home and everything is set up for patient with smooth sailing out the door, with everything in place for a great recovery.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 28, 2018
I learned a lot during my time at UUHC and everyone was so willing to teach but they seem to not care about the safety of their employees. While there I was verily and physically assault weekly to the point that I had to take days off to recover.
Short breaks, large workloads, abusive environment
Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 26, 2018
I loved it there, the nurses were helpful, management was understanding and compassionate. I really had a lot going on at the end of my employment and they tried very hard to work with me. The only thing I thought was a con was that you cannot get FMLA until you have worked there a year. That means you cannot have any major medical incident in the first year, but how do you control that? Other than that the pay was great, I basically had the schedule I wanted (we made our own schedules), and my co-workers were absolutely amazing!
