GGH is a very welcoming and inviting company. My hiring process was not stressful nor intimidating; the orientation was thorough and well prepared me for my position; and management treats all employees fair and with integrity. Being offered a position with GGH would be a great opportunity for anyone who loves what they do.

Excellent place to work. Only downfall was the bullying by another staff. This was happening too many staff members and management did nothing. Otherwise staff was helpful and worked well within a team. Takes you to your maximum scope of practice. Great learning opportunity.

I enjoy working at GGH. The people are fantastic and it is great to be part of a team that is helping others. I am proud to work, serving the people of my community. The most difficult part of my job is the lack of funding available to Healthcare. So much more could be done with more funding.

This hospital is small (200 beds or so) and is very quaint. The pharmacy department is a 30 employees or so, where the attitude between pharmacists and technicians is friendly and jovial. As NAPRA standards come in to play, this hospital is due for some major overhauls in its sterile procedure space and may be under construction in the future. CPOE, EMAR and bar coding all to be established starting in early 2019.
Pros
Department opens at 7am and closes at 9pm, therefore no night shift.
Cons
Director retiring early 2019

I found GGH to be an engaging environment to complete a student nurse placement. I learned the basics of how to engage with a client as a student nurse. I would work there again if given an opportunity.
