Fast pace environment, with many different tasks to do; often all at once. Very professional environment, but good, fun loving, and caring people.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Cooperstown, NY – May 23, 2017
My typical day at work consisted of data entry with the mediteck system to ensure patients got tests and procedures needed for a diagnosis. I would help with codes that saved lives. I observed, and was certified in basic dysrythmia ti observe telemetry monitors, and report any abnormal heart rhythms. I performed clerical duties, scheduled appointments, admitted, and discharged patients. I worked independently, as there were no other workers who knew goes to do this particular job, and duties. I became certified as a preceptor to train new workers within the hospital to do this job. I had to habe good communication and interpersonal skills to talk with doctors, nurses, other staff, and to handle calls that came in from other sources, such as family members, and other facilities.
Helping to make people's lives better, and most of all, saving lives.
Registered nurse (Former Employee) – Cooperstown, NY 13326 – April 6, 2017
Very hard to wrk wirh all women that r very hipocritical. But that's everywhere that staffs basically women. When I left felt like the 14 years I was there meant nothing and was unappreciated for the years I was dedicated. I started as a nursing asst then and LPN then an RN for past 7 years. I have not kept in contact with any of those I wrked with and some for 14 years. Was upsetting.
Some good ppl, Cafeteria expensive but good, My NM was wonderful and caring for the most part, Up to date with emr, Most user friendly I've seen.
Lots of back stabbing on floor I was on, and the money was not good, not friendly when leave
Managers that have no experience or don't keep their word and use you to their benefit and do not support their employees. Feel working beside staff would be beneath them If they fail, they promote them to other jobs to relocate them. Always understaffed Paperwork more important than patients. Below average pay and no raises. Find something else!!
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – NY – March 6, 2017
Rural care is definitely a boon - they have hospital based management with limitations when it comes to the grit of the rural environment. Support was not always available, when requests are made of your time and skills, they were more available. Not seeing management and having monthly meetings was a blessing. Micromanagement was a real problem, they would try to fit round pegs in square holes and force the corners when it didn't fit. Change from one department to another really requires an 'in' with someone. They continue to block providers with lateral or upward movement.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Norwich, NY – February 13, 2017
Fast paced doctors office with many doctors and patients to over see. Work day includes answering phones registering and scheduling appointments. Coping and mailing out patients records, putting in prescription requests and messages regarding results.
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Cooperstown, NY – January 25, 2017
The pay is very low and every department is severely understaffed. That being said, I do love my department and my coworkers. My direct managers are also very supportive and go out of their way to make sure that the office runs as smoothly as possible.
Billing Specialist (Current Employee) – Cooperstown, NY – December 16, 2016
It's a nice place to work at Bassett, the environment is friendly and easy going. I work claims for multiple insurances every day, make sure everything goes out the door on time and work any payments that I receive.
LPN (Current Employee) – Mibh clinic – September 29, 2016
New employee looking to leave already. A lot of backstabbing, sucking up, and overwork. Expected to know how to do things i have never done. Management is a joke. Benefits stink. Other staff too busy talking about personal lives to help you when you need it.
Licensed Sec.Off, retired police chief. (Former Employee) – Cooperstown, NY – September 21, 2016
I enjoyed my job and worked with some great team members and hospital staff. Helping people under difficult situations was very rewarding. If you have prior experience, the pay is great. However, management of this department is at an all time low. You are mandated to attend training and meetings on a monthly basis (days off inc.). These meetings and training amount to no more that the senior manager patting himself on the back. When you attend training, you must sign a document that you have attended training on that day. Of course, it does not state what the training was. Great if you ever go to court! The senior security manager was a former car salesman prior to taking his position at Bassett and is quick on his feet with answers to management. Comes off as the best thing since sliced bread. Nevertheless, if you are former law enforcement, or have more experience than him, do not try to give advice on how to improve the department, or streamline operations. In the end, this will only cost you your job. This department is operated on a favorites come first basis......
Great people to work with and good pay.
Favoritism, lack of management skills and know it all attitude.
Biller 2 (Current Employee) – Cooperstown, NY – September 6, 2016
Pleasant place to work. Manager gives incentives for jobs well done, like dress down Fridays. Most of my coworkers are great people to work with. Leaving was the hardest thing. The most enjoyable was the experience and the devotion I invested at Bassett Healthcare.
I believe that this is a great place to work, especially as a new nurse.
LPN (Former Employee) – Cooperstown, NY – August 24, 2016
I enjoy this job and my patient. I believe basset offers good advancement opportunities for your career. I have enjoy all of my coworkers so far over the year, as every one is willing to help you learn and grow.
The only down fall is the turn over and inconsistencies I have found in my recent job at BFMO.
