The lab was a wonderful place to work for approximately eight years but new management has sent it downhill. I am willing to talk about it, but I prefer to remain professional and unemotional. I have served for over a decade as a lab generalist, performing all manner of procedures including all basic procedures for chemistry, hematology, microbiology, and blood banking in addition to some serology testing. Specialty testing includes performance of thyroid and kidney biopsies, bone marrow biopsies, and frozen sections with histology.
Enviromental Services Specialist Lead Role (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – February 22, 2016
The first thing I always did was call the nursing supervisor to see what rooms were priorities to clean for patients. I had a great work partner to assist me. Always made sure the Emergency Room was clean. Always ready for a STAT clean for the ambulance to arrive. Fast paste with great quality.
free lunch, great team work, very appreciative people who admire my work ethic
Lack of communication between management and employees.
I love the environment of workplaces which are set up to help people through crisis. At DRMC, everyone helps everyone and the patient is the most important component of the system. The people I work with are like family. The hardest part is the small financial compensation.
The culture is great; small town feel where everyone knows your name. Acceptable amount of bureaucracy which is comparable to the organizations size. C-level executives are accessible if and when needed.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – July 18, 2015
Working nights could be a callenge but I worked with a wonderful team I met many outstanding Dr's and Nurses working at DRMC aided me in finding a nursing job in LTC that I was at for 5+ years. I was A great place I would work for this organization again if the opportunity arose.
Employed overnight environment with really nice people
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – July 14, 2015
Call the nursing supervisor to see what patient room is a priority for patients. Then went down to the ER cleaned areas such Triage, Exam Rooms, Nursing Center and break rooms. I learned what each floor consist of and how to clean specific room. Hardest part was patients conditions were heartbreaking but did my best to make them confrontable. I enjoyed my co-worker and met nice people and make them and our patients happy.
I review assignments for my shift, and staffing for the next shift. I run reports on charges, medication scan rates, critical values reporting, and surgery and procedure schedules for the next day. I help out the therapists with their first rounds and any procedures that come up. I respond to all Code Blues and Rapid Responses. I consult with nursing and troubleshoot problems. I also cover the nursery, and attend high risk deliveries. I also do patient audits for medications information.
I have learned how to manage and motivate a group of people. I have learned when to step in, and when to let other people take the lead. I have learned how to deal with difficult situations, such as angry patients, family members, and doctors, with solutions that get the patient taken care of and diffuse emotional moments.
I have enjoyed working with the Respiratory and Nursing staff at DRMC. I am looking forward to new experiences and challenges. I am also looking for a job that has me working days.
We are supported by leadership and have a positive working culture. Staff house wide are engaged and allowed to have a voice with the Magnet designation. Many people not only utilize this facility, but work here as well.
Typical day at work,was every Mondays with the orthopedic cases. I learned a lot, how to perform on my job duties, i learned how to deal with difficult people, and how to take make my job easier and a busy days. Management was very good. My co-workers and I, we all have a good relation inside and out side The hardest part was when i stared working there, after i learned the system, and know the people, everything got easier. The most enjoyable time was when all the co-workers got together at the same hours to work.
Great company to work with. Typical day is fast paced and the hardest is when the pts. do not pre register. Working with the staff members is the most enjoyable and having different type of pts. everyday especially the pediatric pts.
Progressive Care Unit Charge RN, Nights (Current Employee) – Denton, TX – April 27, 2015
I love the staff I worked with on days and now nights. We work well as a team, have fun together, work hard, and enjoy time away from work together. We would agree that we have a great manager. Growth is fostered and the hospital is small enough that over time i have developed relationships with at least half the staff there. We are having a season of burnout amongst nursing staff due to a loss of nurses and techs house wide. We have not been able to fill those vacated positions and we are either working with an increased nurse to patient ratio or working overtime to fill the needs. The most enjoyable part of the job is loving the people i have the privilege to work with day in and day out. As night charge, i enjoy being available to help the nurses take care of the patients so the nurses and the patients have a better 12 hours.
Fun place with lots of team work, rewards and friendship. Advancement into medical programs available
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Denton, TX – February 17, 2015
A typical day of work is putting my mind and thoughts on the job ahead of me and getting myself mentally prepared for the needs of each patient that I will meet and encounter. Depending on the day the workload is full and very busy. I like this because there is no time to be idle and I get a lot done. I love the patients more than anything and I love to use my gift of compassion in helping individuals who need to be taken care of. My co-workers are wonderful and my respect for them is high. I have learned so much about people, their weaknesses, their strengths and the preciousness of life through my job. I have also gains a lot of self confidence and feel that the sky is the limit in regards to my future and the medical profession. I sincerely love taking care of people, believe it is my calling in life and desire to obtain my nursing degree in the near future.
room to improve and the opportunity to show compassion and care to people
RN (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – September 1, 2014
No teamwork. Management on medical floor are very rude and micro manages you. Speaks to you with disrespect. Benefits and pay is pathetic. Does not give fair evaluations. No raises. Work load is to much. Very hard to keep your patients safe from falls.
I really don't really wish to recommend anyone work here. I cant speak for other departments but housekeeping is horrible and I've worked there for over two years. Management has always been a problem since I started. They don't treat you right and they walk all over you. I could go on and on for days. Do Not Work here cause its really not worth the time or the effort!!!
