I work the night shift so it consists of mostly ER patients and is self managed. I enjoy the shift and the people because we function as a team. The hardest part of the job is working nights, sometimes its difficult to get enough sleep during the day. I enjoy helping people

You really have to continue your great work ethics to make it worth the experience of working here. The patients are the major concerns and safety for you and them. If more people were employed with that same attitude and aptitude, Central Florida Regional would be an outstanding place to work.
Chaplain (Current Employee) – Sanford, FL – May 11, 2016
The CEO and Admin team are excellent to work with. I appreciate the dedication of the nursing and doctors who provide state of the art care of patients and staff. I am honored to be part of the team as an on call Chaplain.
cleaning patients rooms, ive learned to be more compassionate, and a caring employee.management is helpful,when needing to resolve department issues, friendly coworkers, the most enjoyable part of my job, is the patients that i meet every day, and trying to make them feel better while they are at the hospital,also the wonderful doctors and nurses.
Management does not appreciate any suggestions from workers. Charge nurses have favorite nurses who do not get as difficult work load as other nurses. Not enough techs to help out with pt,s for a good team, but the techs that are there are hard workers. Lack of support with other 3 pt,s when with critical pt. Everyone is friendly but clicks develop and make it difficult for some nurses to fit in.
Most nurses friendly. Hospital is union hospital.
No breaks, rarely get a lunch. Not much support for back up
Was great place to work until I found out they don't have shift differential unless you work the weekends (extra $1.25 + base! - really!!!) and overnights. PRN pay is horrible here, make more elsewhere.
Registered Nurse Emergency Department (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – March 15, 2014
I work night shift 7p-7a mostly weekends. I thoroughly enjoy my co-workers, we are quite the little bust ER seeing about 45,000 pt's a year in 22 beds. Night shift is a family, we work as team in survival mode. The hardest part of this job is room for clinical growth.
Salary & Benefits
No clinical ladder for further growth & development
This hospital has opened so many opportunities for me, that I am forever grateful for. I have had the experience of learning hands on by many wonderful people. This job has taught me that healthcare is something I definitely want to make a career out of.

I worked for this company for only several months and the company itself is great, however, my issue was with the department I worked for. I was a pharmacy tech and need I say, I was not treated fairly at all. When I gave me resignation, I was not responded to at all, however, some of the staff found it okay to speak badly of me. Management for this department is EXTREMELY unprofessional and does not value the employees whatsoever. Whenever I had an issue and addressed to my manager, I was told to handle it myself. It's sad to say that I was happy to be leaving and going to work for a company who actually cares about the employees.
great company itself
unprofessionalism, too many cliques and not enough communication
As an Intern, I would immediate seek out available exams that I could complete. The licensed techs would supervise my activities and made themselves accessable should I need assistance. The imaging department was actively updating their equipment so the quality and ease of image acquisition was quickly improving. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the patients and staff.
My job was wonderful I love working for the company til there was a change in management. It was my first real career after finishing school in Health Information Technology. When I started I was working as a ER Coordinator then was placed in the Inpatient Coordinator. It was a wonderful learning express. I thank them for giving the opportunity to work for there company..
Paramedic/Tech in the ER (Former Employee) – Sanford, FL – January 17, 2014
Being a ER tech is one of the most selfless jobs you can have. In the roll of ER tech you are the behind the scene's guy that is at the bottom of the barrel but the ER would not know what to do without you. You are the spare hands, knees, shoulder, and mop that every nurse, Dr., and environmental/Clean up guy abuses and puts away wet but in the job of health care you are not getting in to it for fame or money it is what you have to really want to do. I was able to expand my scope of practice with some awesome nurses, Dr.s, and PA's helping me learn how to tend to all types of situations that in the normal world is extreme but in the ER is just another day.
Great environment, not much time to enjoy a social life.
Operating Room Orderly & Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Sanford, FL – July 7, 2014
A great place to learn and grow professionally. My experience in cardiac electrophysiology did not allow for much free time, but the pay was good. Management was focused on coddling physicians as to not ruffle any feathers, ensuring cash flow. That's understandable to a point, but it bred bitterness among the ranks of the worker bees in the hive.
Medical Technologist- Generalist (Former Employee) – Sanford, FL – August 5, 2014
staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. management team was very helpful as well. always something new to learn, and the interaction with the open heart surgery team was a great learning experience.
Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Emergency Department – August 14, 2014
Please consider that I have only completed 2 shifts (post orientation) as I am a recent hire but I am very impressed with the resources of the facility. I work per diem at present so only have approx 4-6 shifts per month of various start times. I am just getting to know my co-workers of various ages, experiences and levels of professional interest. I am always learning new things every day in terms of personal interactions and professional development - listening is probably the most essential skill for all learning, and one I am continually working on. I work varied shifts so thus far there is no "typical day" at work but it is always a matter of managing competing priorities with sensitivity to the concerns of team mates and customers. The hardest part of the job is frequently feeling that I could have done more for my patients and team mates if circumstances allowed for more time and the most enjoyable part of my job is being told by my patients and their families that my care made a big difference in their moment of difficulty. I love being a nurse!
Many physical resources which support pt comfort and privacy (all private rooms, liberal visitation, personalized dietary services)
As is common in my experience, equipment is of varying reliability and availability.
