Northern Light Health Review
I had a wonderful experience at EMMC. The environment and management were very good.
What I like
I honestly enjoyed working at EMMC. I felt confident that if I was in a situation where I needed assistance it was definitely there.
What I dislike
Pretty much nothing that I disapproved of. I'm sure there are aspects of the hospital that I might disapprove of, however I never encountered any.
Suggestions for improvement
In any corporation/hospital there's always room for improvement. Improvements were always being done.
I'm an RN and my teammates are a wonderful group of people.
EMMC communicates quite well and frequently with all employees.
Yes EMMC encourages co-workers to work with each other. In nursing it is a must. Honesty and being direct are extremely important.
Not for nurses. The 12 hour shifts don't allow a balance between work and life. The work overrides life.
Support from management
I always felt supported and comfortable asking for it.
Freedom to work independently
Yes, EMMC trusts it's employees to work independently. Yet If help is needed it's always available.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diversity is a huge part of any hospital. I felt very comfortable sharing ideas and most ideas are supported. Learning from different people from other places was a wonderful experience.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Office / Work Environment
The environment was very good.
We had a special bin to put paper in for recycling and one for bottles and cans. Recycling was an important part of the hospital.
Definitely handicap accessible.
We were given safety training at least every six months in all aspects of the hospital.
Overall compensation for your work
It was very compatible with other hospitals, however for every thing nurses do I feel the pay should be much more.
My position was very stable.
I was extremely proud working at EMMC. It is very respected and prominent in Bangor.
There was always room for professional growth plus it was encouraged.
Working in Labor and Delivery can be very challenging. You never know what is going to happen at any time. I loved it.
