Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 30, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the children. I enjoyed working in the operating room and correcting defects in the children. Also enjoyed working with many of the surgeons. A great learning experience.
A normal day involved cleaning and sterilizing toys and bikes for the patients. I also maintained supplies for equipment and ordered food when needed based on therapists request. I was also able to work alongside of therapists to assist in therapy sessions when need.

Patient Access Associate (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – December 28, 2014
a typical day for me includes signing in at 5:00 am getting all of my sedation charts ready by copying orders. Arranging the charts according to the arrival times of the patients. This would be for 30 minutes. Then off to the 3rd floor for day surgery patients coming in at 5:30 am called first starts which include about 6 patients being registered in the prep rooms. sign in with my badge and putting in the demographics of the patient making copies of the insurance and id and getting the parent of the patient to sign the consent forms. this process is for 1 hour in the morning. I then go back to my original destination on the 1st floor back in the sedation area and this goes on from about 6:30 am until 1:30pm. after this I go back into the admitting area and register patients there that have scheduled exams or some walk ins. I enter orders in and enter the patients into the tracking area so the techs will know where to pick the patients up from. This is a repetitive process. I enjoy talking with parents and just making them feel good through the process with their children. the hardest part of the job is to see the children that are really suffering with their sickness. Everyday for me is a learning process and no matter how long you have worked on a job everyday you learn something new. My co-workers are so helpful and we always help each other out. The management is always around for questions or concerns. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing at the end of the day that my smile and kindness has made someone's visit a little more than just a visit at the hospital butmore... a pleasant one.less

Office supervisor (Current Employee) – Norfolk, Virginia – August 19, 2014
I have worked 15+ years at CHKD and have loved every year of being there. The only way to get a decent raise in salary is to change positions every 2 to 3 years. In the last five years that I've had two cost-of-living increases.

Speech Language Pathologist (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – July 15, 2014
I worked in the outpatient setting of the Children's Hospital. It was a satisfying experience that consisted of treating children with a variety of disorders. I enjoyed my children that were complex and required assistance from multiple disciplines because it gave me the opportunity to learn a variety of techniques specifically for Autistic children to help them cope with their environments and learn more effectively.
