EmployeeWorked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (Cincinnati, OH / United States) in Cincinnati, OH, OH at the time of review.

What I like

When I didn’t pass my nurse board exam the first time, CCHMC was there for me and supporting me every step of the way. They didn’t shun me. They gave me a second chance and helped find a way for me to make an income while allowing me free time to study so I could pass the second time. They worked with me and gave me all the resources I needed. Never left a question unanswered and took me under their wing like I had been one of their own for years

What I dislike

Food discounts and food options. As nurses we work so hard and work long shifts and don’t have time to always eat when we want to and have limited options and time.

Suggestions for improvement

I believe and agree that all policies are fair and that the culture and environment are appropriate. I would not make any changes at this time.

Company Culture

Everyone strives to assist in changing these children’s lives and helping them to live a life they desire. There is true passion and commitment from the employees and they truly care about the patients and other employees. It’s amazing

Challenging Work

A registered nurse in the ICU is not easy, especially when the prevalence of death is very high.

During this pandemic my department has been allowed to work from home. Furloughed employees received 80% of their pay and executives took a pay cut.

Not all departments are held to the same standards.

Suggestions for improvement

For my dept I think we should be salaried, given the demands and responsibilities of our jobs.

EmployeeWorked in Distribution/sales at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH at the time of review.

What I like

I have made excellent friends from my coworkers. We have great cameraderie. There is great multidisciplinary collaboration and teamwork

What I dislike

The workspace is small, and having water in the workrooms would be a vast improvement. I also wish we could have windows

Suggestions for improvement

Water and better temperature control in workrooms. Computers that are not slow or sluggish

Work-Life Balance

As all other residency programs, work life balance is practically non-existent

Handicapped Accessibility

Lots of public handicap available, but the staff entrance at the back of the hospital is impossible to enter in a wheelchair

Challenging Work

The most strenuous job I can imagine, but worth it
