Office / Work Environment
Never have had any complaints working in the hospital. Even working night shifts, have comfortable call rooms with new mattresses and fresh linens
Unclear of any efforts to promote recycling, although does have recycling bins in the work rooms and the cafeteria
This is difficult for any residency program due to the demanding nature of the work we do. They do however promote wellness and have lectures on ways to promote self wellness behaviors
Always looking at for promotion
Have not thought much about this prior to the question, but the fact that this is a hospital, it is by definition handicap accessible
Security guards at every entrance and close by to both fire department and police department
Regularly 80-90 hour weeks, especially in light of new pandemic. Usually work at least one day of most weekends and limited free time.

Suggestions for improvement
- I don’t think I would change much at all. The policies in place are great.
What I like about the company
The best thing about working at this hospital is mainly the positive interactions I have with patients. They are the biggest motivating factor for my hard work. The company itself does a great job at allowing me to do my job well, which is taking care of patients.
What I dislike about the company
I would seek opportunities to hire more residents in order to fulfill unexpected needs, such as residents quitting in the middle of the year. This would help alleviate overworking.
