Emergency Medical Technician-Operations, Noblesville, IN - June 27, 2016
Worked here shortly, but was hired right when they tried to develop ALS trucks. Otherwise, this company only did BLS transfers, primarily dialysis appointments for patients back and forth from ECFs and facilities. I learned basic narrative writing skills and how to comply with Medicare procedure for proper billing purposes (i.e. wording and such). This was a privately owned company, and so money and funding were low, and therefor most of the supplies were never used aside from occasional ice packs and sheets per transfer. They were not able to afford power cots, so all lifting was manual. Aside from being one of the smallest employees at the company, I was assigned to the bariatric cot even when I requested to be transferred to a regular cot/ambulance. However, management never made any changes even after multiple request and a verbal writing explaining my previous history with 3 knee surgeries and knee pain. After 4 months, finally my knee gave out and I had to resign due to up coming surgery for injured knee. Around the same time, the company had started to mess with the hours of all employees without any warning or explanation and shifted people from the "Wishard System" (x2 12hr days on x2 days off and 3 days weekends every other week). Many employees quit at this time, and within 2 months the company went bankrupt and was bought out by another company.
