Facility Type: Acute Care Hospitals
Ownership: Voluntary non-profit - Private
Military Hospital: No
Teaching Hospital: No
Number of beds: 703
Coworkers are cohesive and work together as a team. The hospital is making huge strives to change with the changes in health reform.
Sometime the patient nurse ratios are 7-8 to I find this to be unsafe and a dissatifier to patients and families.
Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)
Good schedule and good pay. Nice environment to grow, good team spirit. Was able to learn new skills. Good ratio between nurse and patients. I strongly suggest this hospital setting.
Psychiatric (Mental Health)
Nurse Assistant II
Scheduling fit my school schedule; higher paid positions; coworkers; great place to work overall. If you have the opportunity to work here you will not be disappointed
If there is a low census you will not be called for extra hours
Neonatal ICU (NICU)
Rush is a great place to learn and grow.
My coworkers in the NICU are phenomenal. They are always willing to help and never want you to feel alone. The physicians are always willing to teach you and take their time with you when it comes to understanding what is best for the patient.
Scheduling is often difficult. I just recently went to every 3rd weekend after 2 years of being there. Vacation is often hard to come by because it is based on seniority. So if you request time during a month that isn't family oriented (holidays, spring break, etc) you will have a better chance of getting time approved, but it is very difficult depending on the month.
The environment was great
Co-workers, facility, scheduling, managers and leadership. The environment overall was great. The patients were amazing and very patient and very friendly.
Non everything was great
Home Health (Hospice)
Co -workers, progressive direction and structure, strong leadership development training. Employee engagement is a high priority and leaders supported in business and clinical management
Executive leaders may not be suited in some cases to oversee the assigned departments
Emergency Room (ER)
Coworkers amazing, facility brand new, pay good, scheduling good. I can't say enough great things about the ED at Rush University Medical Center.
The coworkers were great to work with, the pay was very good and scheduling was never an issue. Liked working there.
I have no cons to add. None, I liked the work, the shifts were good, co-workers were helpful and the area I stayed was acceptable.
Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)
Wonderful staff to work with.
Coworkers were extremely helpful. Pay was good. You get a lot of experience here. There is a lot to see that you would not see anywhere else.
