Because it is a relatively small hospital, there are chronic staffing issues which make it difficult to care for the very sick people we see. Communication and hand-off processes need to to be improved to facilitate better patient care. The software system is a dinosaur and needs to go, but it is a fat chance that will happen.
Interim Diagnostic Imaging Director (Current Employee) – Denton, TX 76210 – June 9, 2017
I loved the staff that all are very hard working staff in the radiology department. Unfortunately, a non-radiology familiar leader was put in place and she was very unethical and not willing to understand the safety requirements in radiology.
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.
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.
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.
