Could be very difficult due to staffing and educational issues.
Intensive Care Unit Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – April 24, 2013
Pros: some health care workers were amazing people.
Cons: health benefits, administration, lack of education
Up on feet all day, lifting patients with minimal help, and most units were understaffed. Most co-worker's stress levels were high. Administration did not like putting on scrubs and helping even though most of them were RN's. The hardest part of the job was helping sovle large problems and situations that arose on a regular basis due to lack of education – more... for many staff members. Some of the situations that arose actually made to local news.The most enjoyable part of the job was a small number of very well experienced and educated nurses and physicians that knew what they were doing. – less
Externship to HIM Clerk (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – November 21, 2013
Pros: the opportunity to learn coding from the owners.
Cons: externship wasn't long enough.
It was such a pleasure to work this group of people. They taught me to bill and code Medicaid and Medicare. I also learned to do birth certificates. I resigned to take care of my grandmother who was 86yr old at the time and had fallen in her home. I am the only immediate family here in Texas.
former employee (Former Employee), staff – May 11, 2013
Cons: too many to list
Stay away from this facility. The staffing is horrible. The supplies are always in demand. The Management are poor and uneducated. look out for the snakes in ever corner of every department. Just not a good place to work. The insurance is horrible, and they try to take out for stuff like tobacco cessation. Non smokers are even having this attached to – more... their checks. Bad business practices all around. – less
Stay away from this place they have been reported on 60 minutes for fraudulent misdealings with the government. They have also been on the local news stations for miscellaneous reasons involving patienrt care in their ER. The biggest issue with this place is that the management staff is very,very poor, and lacking in knowledge in some instances. They – more... have staff members that are malicious, and verbally attack one another frequently, with no disciplinary action taken. Poor staffing concerns with 3 critical patients per ICU nurse, and at times two RT's, one of which may be an agency RT with no knowledge of the hospital at all, to handle the entire building and including a very busy ER. All the charting of patients information is done by paper, with the exception of ER. They run out of needed medical supplies most weeks.. They also use a lot of poor old antequated equipment, They do not support their staff at all, and will make you feel that you are a liability versus being an asset to them. The knowledgable staff members are held down by either uneducated or lazy management staff. The benefits are also atrocious. The Health insurance at DRMC is outrageously expensive, and if you dont use their facility, you are left out in the cold. Most staff their view it as a joke. If you work nights you are completely held out of the loop from the day to day activities. All in all its just not a great place to work. – less
Lead Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – November 15, 2012
Pros: enjoyable - people in the work place.
Cons: 1 to 1 1/2% raises annually
Work Day - work on assigned work orders. Management and co-workers professional to work with. Hardest - Purchase orders taking 3-4 weeks to get approved by the home office. Enjoyable - People in the work place.
Small community hospital with lots of potential learning experiences.
RN/Charge (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – October 8, 2012
I worked for Dallas Regional before and after graduating from nursing school. I also went back there after working for 2 years at Medical City. It was a small, close-to-home place to work, and I felt comfortable there. I became close friends with most of my co-workers, and felt a sense of comfort working with most of the staff. Management was always – more... trying to make things easier for the staff, if it was possible, they would try to do what we requested. I really enjoyed my time there. – less
LVN (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – August 7, 2012
Pros: good health insurance, nice and friendly staff
Staff and management are very friendly; a conducive atmosphere to work. You get to know and familiarize yourself with patients and family members as most of the patients always come back when they are sick. Most tough days are on weekend when there are shortage of staff when some staff call in the last minute. I enjoy yhe picnics and some of the outing – more... organized by management. I also enjoy the birthdays recognition. – less
