Job satisfaction is high and work is enjoyable for most Hospital Housekeepers. Some workers in this field — just under a third — are not awarded benefits. Medical coverage is reported by more than half and dental plans are enjoyed by over one-half. The vast majority of Hospital Housekeepers (81 percent) who participated in the survey are women.
