Social Worker (Former Employee), Upland, PA – April 12, 2014
Pros: excellent benefit package
Cons: new management is making necessary changes-long overdue.
My typical day at work consists of an interdisciplinary team meeting with doctors nurses and utilization review personnel. This daily meting discuss the progress of each patient and the tentative discharge plan I then hold 3-4 family meetings a day with the patient and their families to obtain background family history and the patient's own history. I – more... contact collaborative agencies such as schools, juvenile probation, Children and Youth Services and outpatient mental health providers. When required, I write court summaries, submit them to Mental Court and testify if needed. – less
Great patients. Lots of drama and major nepotism going on.
Med Reception (Former Employee), CCMC-BRINTON lake-Ridley-Middletown & Sprngfld – April 8, 2014
Pros: medical benefits
Cons: drama, deception, termination based on 1 or 2 employees.
Set you up for failure. Witnessed many unethical practices in the offices in which I worked. Co-workers Ok but it's. Everyman for himself. Doctors were awesome but they are not the boss. The boss is a suit that walks around, completely unaware of what's going on with the personnel. If you get a job there the medical benefits are awesome, mind your business, – more... don't make friends . If you see something, look the other way. Document everything and watch your back. A smile on your face, You should be ok if you do these things unless the Practice manager has a friend or relative that needs a job. – less
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee), Upland, PA – January 1, 2014
Pros: pleasant workers
Cons: short breaks
A typical day for myself at Crozer-Chester Medical Center would be seeing anywhere from 40-60 patients a day, ordering test, verifying insurance information and copays as well as receiving written consent for treatment. One of the most enjoyable parts of my job is working with my co-workers and meeting new and different people. The hardest part of my – more... job overall is dealing with the public. Working with the public has advantages and disadvantages but I am a people person so I enjoy it very much! – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Upland – December 31, 2013
Cons: too long to list
Horrible work atmosphere. Constantly micromanaged because everyone fears the axe will be on the head next. They hire to fire and job security is awful. For anyone who accepts the position, come back on here and say you weren't warned. I would rather be unemployed not collecting benefits then work there. The only good thing leaving there was the liberation – more... I felt on the way out – less
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Upland, PA – September 30, 2012
Pros: good health care
Cons: as an employee you have to pay for parking when working
My typical day at work is steady and hard but I enjoy meeting with great patients. I have learned quest processing . I have worked with many great girls. Management was fair and understanding when my husband had his stroke.
Under valued staff; unstable administrators; poor patient care
Nurse Manager (Former Employee), Upland – March 25, 2012
Pros: good staff nurses, excellent doctors.
Cons: instability of hospital system, inferior patient care .
When I worked as a nurse mananger at Crozer in Upland I had a wonderful supervisor and my units (I managed two) were the only units that passed the Joint Commission evaluation on the first pass. My units also passed the initial Dept. of Health evaluation. The rest of the hospital units and facility itself had many markers/deficiencies. Even though my – more... units passed, administration eliminated not only my job, but also my supervisor's job and, actually, all the other 11 nurse manangers were laid off in a "clean sweep" due to budgetary reasons. We were called into Administation one by one and over a week the mananger's were all laid off without notice. I would never take another chance working for Crozer due to these reasons and due to the instability of the administration.
Just four (4) days after I was laid off I was a patient at Crozer and the treatment was horrible. The doctor was wonderful but the nursing staff and other healthcare staff members were negligent in the care of the patients on the unit where I was a patient. The care was inferior and neglectful and the nursing staff were disinterested in the care of patients. The reason that I didn't receive good care post stomach surgery per the charge nurse, "Your room is the last one on the unit, far from the nurse's station". Difficult to accept that reason.
I wouldn't allow anyone in my family or any of my friends to EVER be admitted to Crozer and would discourage anyone from working there for any reason. – less
