During my Externship (Former Employee) – Rockwall, TX – February 17, 2017
I was given the opportunity to perform my externship at this site and everyone was very pleasant and seemed to enjoy the jobs they did. The person who was my mentor was amazing and was able to teach me so much more than what I learned in school.
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Rowlett, TX – June 7, 2017
HR is insanely hard to get a hold of. They hire you for one department, but shuffle you around the whole hospital. They call you on your days off to work. When you do work, half the time they send you home. And the housekeeping staff has 2 people to clean the whole hospital, which by the way is also constantly dirty.
Typical day would in the most taking car of the patient. Short staffed. No secretary to answer phone. A lot about CV surgery. Management was usleless at times. Co-workers in the most part millennia's who focused on the computer than the pts. Supplies not available. Computor program sucked.
I would have to arrive 15 minutes prior to my shift get the report from the previous patient care tech. I would go introduced muscle, patient's, take her vital signs and blood sugar. Assist the patient with ADLs. We also have to monitor our surgery patient, to vital signs every 2 hours, check Foley catheters and dressings. Also assist the patient with turning every 2 hours and check patient's skin. Take out Foley catheters when patient is discharged. Assisted nurse with with dressing change.
No flexibility with schedule, poor management skills
I work on a very busy me/surg/pediatric floor. The staff is wonderful and work very well together. It feels like a family! Management is awesome and fair. The hardest part of this job is not having enough hours in the day to visit every patient on the floor! I really enjoy listening to each patient's life story!
ER Unit Secretary/Floor Technician (Former Employee) – Rowlett, TX – July 15, 2014
• Register in all incoming patients • Collect all ER patient’s personal information and enter into computer • Collect any money due and post money paid to patient’s account • Answer all incoming phone calls that came into hospital and transfer call to their desired destination
Typical day at work includes trauma, trauma, and more trauma cases. Routine outpatients including geriatrics, pediatrics, special needs. Routine assisting radiologist with boiposies and drainages. Learned how to work alone, quickly and efficiently. Hardest part of the job seeing patients lose their loved ones. Enjoyable part of my job is knowing my coworkers were like my family, always there willing to lend a hand to help.
Lake Pointe has a lot to offer both new graduates and those with experience in their field. I have and continue to learn new skills, develop outstanding relations with not only the physicians, nurses and staff but the patients as well. The employees are helpful, insightful and caring towards patients and their families putting them first. Lake Pointe also offers a variety of opportunities to grow within the company and to expand an employees value to the facility.
I work the day shift and usually have 3 patients depending upon their acuity. From feeder/growers to infants that require oxygen. I have learned a lot working here and learn something new every day. I went through their nicu internship and that took about 3 months. Management is supportive and my co-workers are fantastic. The hardest part of the job is the constant floating between NICU and Nursery. One day in Nursery and the next NICU. I like both units but I find the continuity of care suffers if I cannot stay in one unit for the three shifts I work a week. The most enjoyable part of my job is taking care of my patients and watching them get better everyday and then finally being able to go home.
Day shift, close to home, great team work
limited type of patients IE; respiratory NICU patients only
Challenging and growing facility with changes and new projects always in the works.
Director of all Cardiopulmonary Departments (Former Employee) – Rowlett, TX – October 30, 2013
Developing and instituting new programs and instrumental in growing the facility. Instrumental in developing and successfully taking our Newborn nursery to a full Level III NICU. Learned marketing skills in promoting my Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab Depts. Grew and developed our respiratory therapists and dept with onsite education programs and rotations to outside Dallas NICU facilities. Brought my 3 depts to a team cooperation attitude with an atmosphere of not only increased professional attitudes and skill levels but fostered depts that truly enjoyed their work and cooperative levels of working as a team to make entire dept successful in meeting our goals. Instituted many team goals involved in community programs such as annual Cystic Fibrosis fund raising events, annual walk-a-thons, celebration weeks for recognition of Respiratory Care Week in appreciation of all the hard work performed throughout the year by the respiratory therapists. Worked closely with COO and Administration in developing and growing the depts. Gained the support and respect of top Administration for the support of my depts. Most difficult part of my position was when employees had to be dismissed from their positions.
Monthly celebrations for entire hospital staff presented by Admin, as well as working in an atmosphere of friendly, and truly supportive individuals that wanted everyone to succeed.
Always being on-call 24/7 for issues, staffing emergencies, etc.
Medical Records Coordinator (Current Employee) – Lorain, OH – January 13, 2013
A typical day for me would be to immediately check every unit for any forms that need to be scanned and uploaded into our database. I will receive phone calls from other facilities or doctors' offices needing information on residents. In-house and discharged charts are audited. Of course there's filing and copying. I actually love what I do. It's a perfect fit for me.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Rowlett, TX – August 14, 2012

I really miss the Lake Pointe family, I would like to encourage everyone to choose this hospital for your medical attention.
