Entire Hospital is under staffed
X-ray Tech (Former Employee), Oklahoma City,OkDecember 13, 2014
Pros: some employee discounts on their own healthcare
Cons: under staffed
Entire hospital is understaffed and needs more ancillary help like in-house transport and CNA's. Nurses and other professional workers spend to much time doing ancillary work like transporting patients. I find it difficult to get my work done for the lack of support staff. Also, the hospital always seems to be short of supplies.
The hospital has a lot – more... of great professional people, but the work environment often feels rushed because staff shortages. I did not enjoy my work day.
They have what seems a lot of safety polices in place but it's all on paper. A lot of unnecessary paperwork that slows your real work down. – less

People were fun to work with
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Evansville, INNovember 14, 2014
The job consisted of order intake, insurance verification and copying charts. The job would have been great, but as with any job there are a few employees who use the system to get away with not working, such as an FMLA. This creates stress on the remaining employees

I don't think this problem is limited to Deaconess.

Great team of people to work with.
Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee), Spokane, WashingtonOctober 20, 2014
Pros: daytime hours, 40 hours per week
Cons: heavy workload at times
As a medical transcriptionist at Deaconess Hospital, I had an ongoing workload of downloaded dictations from cardiology physicians on a daily basis. I completed all work assigned each day. STAT dictations were done immediately upon request. I worked with one other transcriptionist, and between the two of us, we completed all dictations and processing – more... of notes for a busy cardiology outpatient clinic.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to do my work with very little supervision and full autonomy. Supervisors trusted that the work would get done accurately and efficiently on a daily basis, and it did.

The hardest part of the job was when the workload would get heavier during certain parts of the year. However, work was still completed accurately and efficiently.

I worked not only with one other transcriptionist, but collaborated with cardiology sonographers, nurses and doctors within the clinic when there were questions or concerns regarding dictations. I enjoyed the co-workers and teamwork within the clinic. – less

A fast pace learning environment for new nurses.
Graduate Nurse (Former Employee), Evansville, INSeptember 20, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, lots of learning on the unit, staff development.
Cons: management inconsistency.
Depending on the patient load, a typical day would require taking care of two critically ill patients. I learned so much working at Deaconess. I think the big lesson I learned was to stay calm in emergent situations and utilize all skills needed during those times. Management changed several times while I was on this unit, so there was never real consistency – more... in that regard. My co-workers were awesome!! They were always willing to teach and help me since I was a new nurse. The hardest part of the job was dealing with caring for families that had a family member dying on the unit. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing patients that appeared as if they were not going to make it recover. – less

Medical Records Clerk (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOSeptember 18, 2014
Cons: sewer seeped in the office
I wish I had know about Medical Records when I was 19. I would have made a career out of it.

The work could be hard and stressful at times, but I really enjoyed the experience.

Unit Coordinator / Patient Transporter (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHMay 21, 2014
Pros: wonderful patients
Cons: management
It was a great job and I would probably still be there however, I left to move to Virginia and because it was a privately owned hospital they had to close the doors a couple of years after I left.

We are our own family coming together in the medical office
MEDICAL RECORDS SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Evansville, INApril 11, 2014
Pros: sitting in the main desk in the back, where most people come to first when needing something
Cons: that is not being able to work the long extra hours
We are a fast paste medical office handling patient, doctors, care takers, and parent calls. We strive as a team to provide our customers with polite caring hearts and compassion. I love the pace, and the ability to talk to different people everyday while having the familiar voices that call needing our assistance daily. I enjoy working with others – more... like myself. Then I get the satisfaction of being able to help others in the office as well. Helping our co workers and helping each other succeed as compassionate beings is most satisfying to me. I go to work each day motivated and ready for whatever comes my way. The hardest thing about working there is.. leaving at the end of day. Sounds sappy I know, but you can ask anyone there, they would all tell you how much I love my desk and position, it's not my Job it is my second Home :) – less

Prodcutive and fun place to work at
PCT (Former Employee), Evansville, INApril 10, 2014
Pros: fun and enjoyable job
Cons: short breaks
I enjoyed working for Turoni's. It's a family owned business and they are very family oriented. The atmosphere is great and the managers make sure the job is done but are laid back. A typical day there was running around and making sure orders are done correctly and on time, but also enjoying the job with laughter. The hardest part that could be challenging – more... would be maybe working at a fast paste but that is about it. – less
