Lack of hours and poor management.
Nutritional Services Ambassador (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALApril 7, 2014
Pros: easy job
Cons: no hours
DCH Regional Medical Center may not be a bad place to work for everyone. However, the Nutritional Services department was far from being pleasant. Associates are hired on as per diem for $9.50 an hour and the illusion that there will be plenty of hours. For your first three months or so, you'll work 30-40 hours every week, with optional shifts available. – more... However, once you are out of the training phase, the hours drastically drop to anywhere from 10-20 per week. You can ask for more hours, but the best you will get is being cross-trained to do a completely different job - which ends up replacing most of the hours of your old job. Despite every per diem and part time employee complaining about this, management continued to hire new batches of employees regularly. Our turn over rate was very high - most people who quit did so because of the lack of hours. – less

A Productive and well executing Department
Radiology Information Specialist (Current Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALMarch 5, 2014
Pros: experience, great benefits, fun co-workers
Cons: parking
A typical work day in DCH radiology Department is clocking in on evening shift and heading to the desk/file room to see what awaits. The shift begins by answering the phones for transferring to the modality of request such as CT, US, NM, MRI and Angio. What you learn from the day is patients and time management, Communicating with the Radiologist, prioritizing – more... reports for the ED or faxing reports to the doctor's office on request. What you see are the transporters picking up and dropping off patients for the ordered exam in which we get off the printer for diagnostic exams or one that the other modalities have sent for. My co-workers are what makes the shift fly by fast. The team work and effort that is placed in doing and wanting to get the job complete. I would not trade the work effort for anything in the world. The hardest part of job is seeing our patients come down sick and have to watch them be put through our exams. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to leave work know that our department performed in a productive manner to assure all exams that were ordered for the day were completed and possibly saved someones life. – less

distribution tech (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: long breaks, good pay
Cons: long hours and worked late on weekends
Deliver supplies to all areas of the hospital, build orders for the next shift to deliver and for the day shift to delve. Also made sure the perfusion cart was stocked for the O.R. the hardest part was dealing with the nurses who couldn't understand that it was just me down in the warehouse trying to do what 6 people on dayshift did. The most enjoyable – more... part was knowing that i was helping the patients that i took the items too. – less

It is a great place to work.
Information Service Analyst (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALDecember 7, 2013
A typical day at work was trying to help the DCH Health System with computer application issues from a support role. In addition, I helped build EMRs.

As a Computer Analyst, I learned many computer applications. In addition, they taught me how to deal with different personalities in a profession manner.

The management is supportive and encourages – more... advancement within DCH Health System.

The hardest part was when I wasn't able to help a customer immediately. I had to learn that if I didn't know the answer then I needed to find a way to help them.

The most enjoyable part of my job was helping people and learning something new everyday. – less

Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALJune 2, 2013
DCH is very caring medical center. I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 years I worked there. I went from Critical Care to Post Surgical Floor to Recovery Room. I had great managers at each and great nursing staff to work with. I learned too many things to mention but the RN's were very interested in teaching LPN's to do many different procedures and better charting – more... techniques, and excellent patient care. The staff helped each other for a real team effect. – less
