I got to see many great and new experiences at the hospital. I got to interact with many different patients. I got to see new procedures performed and sit in on a colonoscopy. I had a great time learning.

Worked for this hospital for 4 years and clinics. Was a loyal employee worked and made sure my job was done to the best of my ability. Loved my fellow coworkers and the surgeon I worked for. I loved my job and all I did for our patients. I learned quit a lot from my fellow coworkers and the surgeon I worked with.
Pre-certed insurances, scheduled procedures and roomed patients took vitals, entered information in EMR. Answered phones and scheduled patients appointments, called in medications for patients refills.
The hospital came upon financial distress the last 2 years I worked there. They started taking our premiums out of our paychecks for our medical insurance and not paying our medical insurance. I repeatedly asked for help in getting this taken care of, which this only fell on deaf ears. Human resources kept telling us they had to make payroll. The hospital is self insured, so they would hold our premiums until they paid other bills, and would only send money to insurance company on check runs.
My bills have been sent into collections, even bills that the hospital was suppose to pay for at 100% because we stayed at our own facilities covered in our contract.
When I started pushing the issue for help, was let go on trump charges. Other people were threatened for wanting to turn them in or to seek legal counsel for their medical bill issues being sent into collections also. All of the employees in our clinic, even the clinic manager was replaced.
Coshocton Hospital is being sued by ex-employees. Patients have the same issues. I have beenmore... sent into collections on bills that should of been paid 100% and were not even sent into insurance company for claim.less

not paying our insurance and being sent into collections
General Surgeon (Former Employee) – Coshocton, OH – January 20, 2016
The hospital had developed counterproductive business practices before the lead-up to the implementation of the EMR 'meaningful use' mandates and the PPACA. Consequently, as hospital remuneration was cut, the hospital had no fat to cut. Billings were sent out as much as 2 years after services. Layoffs and encouraged retirements decimated the experienced nursing and support staff ranks. Routine medical record transcription and clerical tasks were re-assigned to the physician staff. Services such as Obstetrics were eliminated. Operating Room block times were restricted, limiting surgeons' ability to generate revenue. This hospital's financial survival is still in doubt after four plus years of cost-cutting measures imposed without production improvements.

little actual help in adopting incompatable EMR systems in the offices vs in the Hospital.
typical day as RN staff nurse- well staffed with manageable patient load. I learned much about telemetry and care of the cardiac patient. Management was friendly with open door policy. Co-workers are very friendly and work well as a team.
This is a hospital where everyone knows everyone in all the departments, your family. They support you,care about you and take a genuine interest in you. They give excellent patient care because their caring for their friends,neighbors and family.
family like atmosphere.
shortage of physicians, need to recruit more physicians.
