Unit Coordinator OB (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – November 17, 2013
Usually when I come in to work, I put the non-select meals on the computer system for the patients that is unable to talk or order for themselves Make sure all the meals are put in for clear liquids or full liquids diets Take calls and assist patients when they are ready to order either their breakfast, lunch and dinner I've learned a lot in this job and still learning new things, I was not very familiar with different kinds of diets until I began working here and became familiar with what kinds of foods are on those specific dietary restrictions The hardest part of the job is sometimes deal with patients that is having a hard time dealing with the fact they have a restricted dietary order from their doctors and they tend to blame it on the food service since we have very limited options on what they can have or not have on that specific diet order One thing that I enjoy about this job is the fact since I've been here for the longest of all of the jobs I had it's because they work very well with my school schedule and pay reasonable
Histology Technician (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – June 7, 2016
I enjoyed working here full-time and I still enjoy being a per-diem employee. This is really a world-class hospital and I would love to continue my new career, as I transition for lab tech to RN, within the BID network.
Keeping cleanliness and good work flow in the environment
Environmental Services (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 24, 2016
A typical work day is once you come in managers give you a task to fulfill and if help is needed they would provide the necessary help. One of the things I have learned over the years is how to manage my time well. The co- workers are friendly and great to get along with, as well as very understanding and we encourage one another.
Great learning experience, but management not concerned for employees
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Internal Medicine, Lexington – May 23, 2016
Loved the Doctors I worked with, some were very demanding and didn't handle change well. Support staff wonderful. Management didn't manage - stayed in office most of the time or was in with the nurses more than all the other staff. Most MAs did what they could to help each other, but selective.
rapport with most doctors - buying lunch for staff
parking if you did later shift, management, everyone working on the same goals, 2% raises every year
Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 27, 2016
Working in the Emergency Room was exciting, everyday you come to work was a different atmosphere, you never know what kind of day it was going to be and everyday is not the same, You stay busy and the time goes by fast.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – April 18, 2016
I draw blood for scheduled patients. I learned to be more detailed-oriented and different tests. The management wants me to do my best. I get along great with my co-workers. Currently my job is not hard. I like working talking to patients and the freedom to work independently.
Great teaching hospital with lots of opportunity for growth.
Administrative Assistant III (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 12, 2016
My job required me to run a high volume patient care clinic, calendar management between chairmen. Learned alot about surgical procedures from medical to elective procedures. Management could have been critiqued. I worked independently but when my positioned required that I worked with others I found that everyone was useful and helpful. The hardest part of the job was working almost 12hrs unplanned shifts; learning to not take things personal ex: (pt's that come in sick to the pt's that were abusive to the fustrations from the executives.). What I enjoyed most of my experience at the medical center was the rapor I gained with the pt's, the acknowledgement I received for my services and just the feeling I got from knowing my work was affective enough to make an impact on some lives.
Free lunch on Fridays and gifts of acknowledgement
