Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Des Peres, MO – December 16, 2015
Des Peres Hospital has been great start, I have gain knowledge and great experiences though this amazing company. This hospital offered me a solid foundation that I look forward to expanding on. I had very little knowledge about the hospital setting prior to this experience, but through Des Peres I feel confident about the knowledge I have gained at the hospital. I am looking forward to learning and experiencing more about the day to day practices in the medical field.

Lab Assistant/CNA (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 15, 2015
A typical day at work...I work the overnight shift so there are not a lot of people around. It's more peaceful for the patients which helps the staff give better care. I have learned that patients want and require more attention from the staff at any hospital so we as health care workers whether in the laboratory, human resources, maintenance, nurse, or any staff should make the steps in making them feel secure during their stay. The co-workers are friendly and uses all bedside manners to fulfill Tenet's mission. The hardest part of the job is being optimistic, there are just some situation you have to realize you just can not fix. I overall love my job!
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – December 22, 2014
Each day at these work place were great. I've experienced different work skills and management took the time to train me on different working skills.My Co-workers played a teamrole by helping and show how to perform different work tasks.The hardest part of the job is working with lack of staff. The most enjoyable is teamwork.
Surgical tech (Former Employee) – Des Peres Hospital – June 15, 2014
Director of Surgery and her assistant were inconsiderate and conniving towards their workers. You should never get rid of your strong employees because one of them stood their ground and knocked you off your pedestal. You listen to them and you hear them out and don't ever fire them on a whim. You got what you deserve Director of Surgery. Its not animosity that was the issue due to your firing it was you that failed to see the big picture. You got what you deserve.
poor management; lack of team work due to poor staffing.

HIM Department Lead/Analyst (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 22, 2012
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 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.
flexible hours, great co-workers.
trying to understand physicians if they were not fluent in english
