Pros: great co-workers and environment
Cons: little to no advancement opportunities
A typical day at work consists of doing 2 sets of rounds throughout the hospital. There are approx. 75 stations that need to be hit twice per shift. One round the first 4 hours of your shift and another round the last 4 hours. 7.6 hours is what you get paid for per shift. So far i have learned a great deal about Customer Service and dealing with a wide variety of different people. Many different races,nationalities, religions and cultures. I have learned when to use force, when and how to use Verbal De-escalation. The job sometimes takes a great deal of self-control and patience. It demands you to try and think of yourself or a loved one in a patients or visitors situation and you ask yourself how you or a loved one would want to be treated if you were in that particular situation. That value alone has allowed me to learn a great deal in this field of work, but also in life in general as well. The management here is okay. Like most large companies, the management has its ups and downs. But as it is here so far, i cant really complain too much. I enjoy working with all my co-workers. I have to trust all of these people with my safety as they have to do with me. The hardest part of the job is seeing so many people come and go. By that i mean patients. Some you can get close with from working in certain areas more often. Whether the patient simply leaves the hospital or ends up deceased it can be difficult, but its just another part of the job. Helping and keeping people safe makes it all worth it in the end. The most enjoyable part of the job is simply working closely with the other staff throughout the hospital and working with the patients. Helping and seeing people on a daily basis. If you practice good customer service then 99% of the time you get a great response from staff, patients and visitors. Its a very social job and i enjoy that type of work.
