Patient Account Financial Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTJune 15, 2018
I learned a lot working at Waterbury Hospital but it was very militant at that time with the manager we had. She worked really hard, learned a lot from her but had no people skills, no compassion and not very good at communicating. She is no longer par of their organization.

Clinician (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTMay 7, 2018
Recently bought by for-profit company. Must be able to work hard under stressful conditions at times. General negative environment. RN and PCA jobs covered by union, therefore many people working there that should have been laid off many years ago, however they are protected.
Pros
longevity of staff, some camaraderie
Cons
negative work environment, short staffed

Psychiatric Technician (Current Employee) –  Waterbury, CTApril 14, 2018
Many changes due to new management. A great place to start your career, however, not many opportunities to move up. Utilize the tuition reimbursement.

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTFebruary 28, 2018
This facility is able to effectively treat a broad range of adolescent mental health concerns warranting a PHP or IOP level of care. The staff are more than competent in creating dynamic and culturally sensitive treatment plans and are willing to go above and beyond to help the adolescent patients succeed.

Hospital Job
MED-SURG NURSE (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTFebruary 19, 2018
Shift work, clocking in and out as usual for facility setting. Management was very supportive.
Workplace culture is money and performance based.
Hardest part of the job is maintaining safety of all patients with limited staff when someone is confused and mobile.

Most enjoyable is the time spent with patients, and co-workers
Pros
schedules available ahead of time
Cons
work load

Flexible work hours. I work from my computer using Electronic Medical Record to retrieve the information needed for my research.

The hardest part is searching for specific data on the medical record

Radiology Department
Radiologic Technologist (Current Employee) –  Waterbury, CTNovember 27, 2017
I have not worked at Waterbury Hospital very long and only as a per diem Rad Tech. The workplace can be hectic. Typically the day is spent taking X-ray for the ED and for out patients. The equipment is old and outdated. Management can be lacking at times. The other Radiologic Techologists that work there are very helpful and a pleasure to work with and willing to teach.

Med-Surg nurse (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTNovember 22, 2017
Overworked in dangerous situations. Patient to nurse ratio was almost undoable safely most nights. Management was run by non-health related professionals who couldn’t understand that caseload could not be completed on a standard 8 hour shift sometimes due to unexpected emergencies throughout the night and/or patient/nurse ratio too high 9-10/1

Declining with sale to for profit
Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTNovember 11, 2017
After years of suffering healthcare cuts and financial difficulties
the hospital was forced to reduce staff and spending then was sold to a for profit investment company changing from non profit to for profit.
With these changes more cuts and savings were implemented
and the results are not reflecting in a positive way.

It's going through a transition right now, since Prospect Medical bought this hospital. It is, now, a "for profit" organization which adds pressure to their employees.

descent discounts, gym on site

poor management, increase pressure to satisfy standards

Director Revenue Cycle and Managed Care (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTSeptember 19, 2017
At the time WBH management sole purpose was to facilitate the sale of the organization. Management was operationally week. The CEO was not interested in permanent solutions nor was she forward thinking. This resulted in a continued deterioration in fiscal performance.
