Multi specialist assistant (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – November 5, 2015
Parking is an issue for the patients. I feel they have to walk too far to some of the units. The new five floor building was not set up right, and they did not ask for clinical input from the people that work on the floors. They make decisions without input from the staff.
Management really needs to be updated and the staff is to home grown so no one is receptive to any change. Years behind other hospitals and staff morale is down. Tons of favoritism and bitter employees. Horrible working environment
A productive and enjoy place to work. able to find a lot of good stuff and job employment. best place to go ahead ad try to provide a better future for others, by giving them the opportunity to a better life.

Working with this company has helped me gain more experience in the medical. I had the opportunity to work in a out-patient setting prior to working for Danbury Hospital. Now that I'm working in a in-patient setting I gotten familiar with patient. So get a bond with some the patients you see on a day to day basis. Working in the healthcare field you have to be compassionate & sensitive to the patient needs & I for one have definitely grown & matured to understanding that. I love seeing my patients smile.

I enjoy working in healthcare, I love helping others, I enjoy the fast paced environment and am a team player. Everyone has bad days but I believe that you need to go to work with a positive attitude and leave home at home because it is not the fault of your patients or co-workers and they should always be greeted with a friendly smile.
Medical Secretary B (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – March 17, 2015
my typical day at work was opening the clinic, setting up for the day. I would register and set up charts, answering phone messages and scheduling as clinic goes. I would go and translate for the Nurse/Doctor. I would call referrals and set up appointments.
I learned a little about insurance. I also learned to keep stats for clinics and payroll request. meet email deadlines.
Hardest part of my Job was to learn the new programs as I go, the nurse was behind a few months so learning and completing task at the same time was a little difficult but as time went I was ok.
The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with my coworkers because I would work independently with a nurse and barley see them. we would all get together right before the holidays and have a big potluck and give each other gifts and talk for at least an hour.

winter was harsh and driving into work was a little difficult during that time

opportunities to learn and advance in the medical field
I had wonderful nurses teaching the floor duties when I began my career. I never minded authority, I had very good & fair head nurses. They came to know I was a hard worker, accepted admits without complaint, they could depend on me to help where needed. I made myself become familiar with Code 99's, so as to alleve fear when they actually occurred. The hardest part of the job was the physical part of lifting morbily obese pts, taking care of ETOH detoxing pts. Really the most enjoyable part of my career were the pts themselves. If you were honest & kind & took care of them as best you could they were satisfied.
the money i made up north in ct
the physical demands it took on the nurse, even young nurses
Prep/clean food. Deliver meals to patients. I learned a lot about the healthcare workplace. Co-workers were tolerable. Hardest part of my job was having to go into rooms to deliver trays to people with MRSA, and or other illnesses where I would have to dress up in a gown and mask, gloves... etc to deliver meals. Most enjoyable part of my job was walking around the hospital and seeing all different types of people and their job duties.
Place of my schooling, learned all my skills here and how to be a #1 Technologist. Being a trauma hospital kept very busy with an eighteen suite operating room. Management was tough but fair and always had your back. It was a teaching hospital so co-workers were very helpful in the learning process. Most enjoyable part was learning to perfect my skills.
