Scary
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  San DIego, CAFebruary 27, 2015
The computer never worked. It takes forever to reach IT department to fix the issue. The hospital floor is not even and the computer on wheel moves around if you don't lock them. They never had enough CNA to care for patients and very disorganized.
Pros
nothing
Cons
everything

Working in a friendly team environment
Health Information Management Tech (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CANovember 2, 2014
I picked up all previous days discharges. Responsible for checking in and distributing all loose reports daily. Prepared discharges for chart order, filling, pulling records, answering phones, researching admissions, processing discharges. Scanned all completed charts.

I enjoyed working with all my co-workers and personnel in the building.

The hardest part of the job was keeping up with all loose sheets.

My favorite part of the job was processing as many charts as possible each day while working with a great group of people.
Pros
good location

I have shown to be dependable, hard working and a team player. I was told by two of the CNSs to be the best students they ever had at Alvarado.
Externship 160 Hours (Former Employee) –  La Mesa, CASeptember 6, 2012
Working in a hospital is so different then in school. Every day has its own new challenges. This gave me the opportunity to grow as a Phlebotomist. I worked the 4:30a.m. shift, so I did the morning run on the hospital floors. I had to wake the patient to take the first blood draw of the morning. Greeted patient with a nice good morning and introduced by self to the patient. Check patients identification by asking their name and checking their arm band. Made sure to get the prepare needle and specimen tubes I need to collect and compare against the requisition. Label tubes and handle according to hospital protocol. Before leaving the checked to make sure I cleaned up after myself and put everything back as before.
Pros
i enjoy what i do. i feel like i'm able to gave back to the world.
