Overall compensation for your work
I don't get paid enough for what I do.
Working with patients is very challenging. We don't have the biggest hospital so working in the Emergency Dept is most challenging. We work with what we got.
Suggestions for improvement
- More space and units at the hospital, patients are being held down in the emergency deptartment as an admit because there is no room upstairs. That holds up available beds for the Emergency Department and the waiting room is just filling up. People are in the waiting room for 4-5 hours. This happens daily and its where we get our horrible reviews and complaints. faster admission, more doctors in the Emergency Department to see patients and get discharge done quickly for non emergency patients. We need more space for supplies, stretchers.The emergency room should also have the technology to chart better and quicker in the patients room. (On the go tablets) other hospitals have them. I also think UHS should provide some kind of daycare for employees. And more staff for guaranteed breaks.
What I like about the company
I have had some really great experiences working at the hospital. What i see and the things i do to help people has taught me life is too short, and be greatful for your health. I have come to have make some really nice relationships with my co workers. We all help each other out on the clock and outside of our work facility. Working with your shift is like working with your second family. We all respect one another, and if you don't then you just don't belong. And that's your choice.
What I dislike about the company
I disapprove of the wages. I feel that UHS employees should provide better wages for nursing assistants. Especially in the Emergency Dept. They do so much more work than the nursing assistants do on the units. We are moving non stop, never get to sit, we don't get breaks, sweating like a workout from the work we are doing. Most days I go through the entire shift without getting a bathroom break. That's how much the Emergency Dept relys on your job.
