I have been working at Caldwell Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)
Good benefits, friendly atmosphere.
Work/life balance does not exist due to shortage of reliable staff, lots of OT.
I worked at Caldwell Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)
An excellent group of therapist as well as other disciplines to work with.
Lack of equipment to utilize for therapy needs and to change the mindset of the care team that PT employees aren't to just take patients to the restroom, this activity is gladly utilized during treatments but to be called in for this specific reason only. At times we were treated as glorified orderlies.
Advice to Management
Educate the other parts of the care team. Staff in services to help address any areas of questions pertaining to safe patient handling as well as patient positioning to lessen skin breakdown. Get our staff involved more quickly, if a patient has been in the hospital for a week and they need to be discharged but have not been out of bed for a week. HELLO !!! Strength and balance will be effected, which could delay the discharge.
Great work ethic and supporting staff
Nurse to patient ratios stressful
I worked at Caldwell Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)
Great patient interactions, great co-workers for the most part.
Very low wages for the amount of stress I had to deal with the patients.
I worked at Caldwell Memorial Hospital as a contractor (More than a year)
A pro to working here was that it is convenient to the immediate area. Co workers are always willing to help to share their knowledge.
The con to working at a hospital is of course the "on call' part of the job. Likewise the con at a private institution is the uncertainty of the time you would leave daily; this type of schedule makes it hard to schedule after work/school activities.
Advice to Management
Make sure there are open lines of communication between you and your employees. Not just the words but actions as well.
