I love working at Mercy Hospital
Working the night shift, I would have to say the hardest part is getting out of bed, but to work with my team is something I look forward to. I work on the happiest unit in the hospital, the labor and delivery unit. Seeing the joy on the families faces and the new life that was just brought into the world makes it all worth it. The support of the staff is great.
My work at Mercy Hospital
Daily upkeep of Campus Grounds Oversee the maintenance and repair of hospital vehicles. Wrote bid specifications and overseen contractors and vendors in construction and repair of exterior concrete, roadways, sewers, and parking lots. Maintained irrigation systems. Designed new planting beds. Ordered materials and supplies. Snow commander in charge of staffing scheduling employees and contractors for snow and ice abatement.Operated backhoes,skid loaders, dump trucks, salter's, snow plows,lawn tractors, and various power tools.The best part of the job was talking and assisting visitors,patients, and staff.The hardest part of the job was accepting the fact that I could not perform different jobs and projects the right way until administration had me preform it their way.I would then go back and do it the right way which seemed to me a big waste of money and labor not to mention time.I was taught to do the job right the first time using the proper procedures, equipment and materials..
solid hospital in a community that is modest to poor incomes,
Mercy Hospital is a great midsized hospital that offers treatments and programs of larger hospitals. and has remained viable as the first hospital in Chicago and continues to be competitive .
The nurse on nurse violence in the ICU was so horrific that I debated on leaving nursing altogether. Glad i didn't.
The whole experience in itself is great. Every co-worker is really nice and helpful. You get to learn a lot while doing. The hardest part might be having difficult pateints to work with but even then having those patients makes you develop better skills for the future.
