At first, the job wasnt bad. However, with the high turnover rate that the dietary department has it soon became a lot more challenging. Management would schedule employees 7+ days in a row and not blink an eye. Certain behaviors from coworkers got swept under the rug.. Credit was rarely given when due.
I enjoyed many aspects of my job while at the Continuous Care Center. Once I was moved from there to the business office under different management, muy job became very unpleasant. I found there were quite a few employees who were able to get away with doing nothing which was very hard to put up with.
Wheeling Hospital Lab is poorly managed and ran. I have worked at a few hospitals and other than the pay this ranks at the bottom of my list. They are under staffed and not trained well at all. Experience means nothing at Wheeling Hospital, they like to hire young inexperienced people with no work ethic.
good place to work just ignore the favoritism. there is lots of favoritism within the company. over all good place to work. there health care was not very good the most expensive and covered very little was the largest con.
I worked for Wheeling hospital for about four months. I was a nursing assistant which you don't have to be certified they had me doing all kinds of things that a nursing assistant shouldn't be doing at least not without the proper certification! They hire you for a certain floor and when someone calls off they will constantly pull you where ever coverage is needed. Working there was nothing but a stressful environment.
I work in a fast paced Urology office in which I enjoy assisting the physician w/office cystos, obtaining complete medical histories from patients. I have learned how to perform urodynamic studies. I change catheters on patients monthly when pts arrive to office. I call patients to give them their results of their urinalysis specimens.
Upper management is out for the money only. Patient care and safety is lacking due to not enough staff. High turnover rate in ALL departments due to management's attitudes for employees and patients. Workers are not happy but have no other options due to where they choose to live. Therefore hostile working can arise. The hospital to get discount on services if you use this facility.
Main issues were administration not wanting to spend more money than absolutely needed, and lack of clear communication between departments. Some fellow staff members can also be very rude (though this is obviously not always the case).
Top notch in emergency medicine. If you are assigned a trauma or MI or stroke patient, all other patients are reassigned, as it should be. Great sense of teamwork. If you are looking to work in an emergency department, this is the place.
ER registration is a joke, the supervisor needs to get a back bone and stick up for her employees. Instead she's to busy listening to the thing that calls herself a manager, and has no idea what she's doing. They treat older employees that actually do their job and go to work horrible and listen to little girls that are only there temporarily. If the manager doesn't like you she will do anything in her power to fire you or make you quit. And they try to deny your unemployment if you are terminated. The worst management I've ever worked under!!
The pay and benefits offered are fantastic... If you're willing to sacrifice your sanity. Completely cutthroat, uncaring facility that's driven by the bottom line. Don't let the fact that this is a "Catholic" hospital fool you. The practices that go on here are anything but what the hospital tries desperately to represent itself as.
