THEY DONT APPRECIATE THEIR GOOD-WORKERS
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: my pay and a small hospital
Cons: staff not treated fairly
I WORK THERE 2 1/2 YRS. IT WAS VERY NICE UPON THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE..NURSES ARE NOT FRIENDLY OR HELPFUL..MANAGEMENT AND SUPERVISORS ARE VERY UNPROFESSIONAL...THEY SMILE IN YOUR FACE, BUT ARE VERY FAKE...I WAS A PCT THERE, AND THEY GIVE YOU FAR TOO MANY PATIENTS THAN YOU CAN HANDLE WITH NO HELP..I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE BOTH SIDES OF DAY SHIFT AND – more... NIGHT SHIFT...VERY POOR CONCERN ABOUT PATIENT CARE..I LOVED WHAT I DID, BUT THOSE 12 HRS. ALONG WITH POOR TEAM-WORK WAS A HEAVY BURDEN TO ACCEPT.. I PUT MY TWO-WEEKS IN FOR RESIGNING..I WAS TOLD BY MY SUPERVISOR AND THE HUMAN RESOURCE DEPT., THAT I COULD RETURN BACK IF THINGS DIDNT WORK OUT...I KNOW I WAS A GREAT WORKER THERE, BUT MY ATTENDANCE WASNT TOO GOOD, DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS AND THE UNFAIRNESS I SAW AND RECEIVED..MY SECOND TO LAST DAY THERE, I ARRIVED TO MY FLOOR AND FOUND OUT BY ANOTHER SUPERVIOR, THAT MY SUPERVISOR HAD TOOK ME OFF THE SCHEDULE..SO THEY KEPT ME THERE, AND WOW, WHAT A HUGE CONFUSION.. SO I WORKED WITH A SMILE THAT DAY AND I DIDNT GO BACK MY LAST DAY...WELL, 2 1/2 MONTHS PAST, AND I CALLED MY SUPERVIOR TO ASK IF I COULD COME ON BACK..SHE FIRST SAID I HAD TO REAPPLY, SO I DID..THEN 1 1/2 WEEK WENT BY, SHE TOLD AN CO-WOKER THAT SHE WILL NOT LET ME COME BACK AND THAT IF ANY BODY CALLS HER FOR A REFERRAL OF ME, SHE WILL TELL THEM THAT SHE WILL NOT REHIRE ME.. SHE COMPLETELY LIED TO ME AND THEN COULDNT TELL ME HERSELF....I WAS BITTER AT FIRST, BUT THEN I ACCEPTED IT WITH MY HEAD-UP HIGH...THIS MADE ME A EVEN BETTER PERSON-CNA-PCT THAN I THOUGHT POSSLBLE... THANKS DES PERES HOSPITAL-MED/SURG 4A....AND FOR THE ONES THAT'S HANGING IN THERE--EAT IT UP...!!!! – less

Was an enjoyable place to work, felt like family. I loved my job!
HIM Department Lead/Analyst (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOOctober 22, 2012
Pros: flexible hours, great co-workers.
Cons: trying to understand physicians if they were not fluent in english
I learned a lot working in the HIM Department. Started out as a file clerk in 2004. I quickly learned all the positions within the department with the exception of coding and in 2006 was made Department Lead. In 2007, the hospital began converting to the electronic medical record, Horizon Patient Folder. The hardest part of my position was naming the – more... multitude of forms used by the hospital and creating the document tree for HPF. I became very proficient in Cerner and HPF. I think the most enjoyable part of my position was troubleshooting and assisting others in using HPF and Cerner. – less
