MIddle Management (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – April 30, 2013
Pros: nice location just off white rock lake

OR Surgery Coordinator (Current Employee), Augusta, GA – April 1, 2013
Pros: making a difference in patients live's.
Cons: upper management
I learned to be a Team-player and not focus on negative feedback in the work place. A typical day at work included learning new skills and providing a positive attitude that is infectious towards others. I often referred to this job as the Adult daycare, because dirty laundry was aired on a daily basis. Overall I was determined to not feed into negative – more... energy and focus on the common goal of doing a job well-done. Management was an entirely different monster, because I never worked for manager's who failed to solve critical issues. Instead they we're contributory to most of the issures. – less

Respiratory Care Practitioner (Former Employee), Arlington, VA – November 12, 2012
Pros: weaning patients and interacting on a postive scale with the pulmonoligist.
Cons: short staffed, temp staffing, and turn overs in staff.
The first start of vent weaning unit. Heavy patient care work load, but very satisfying to know we weaned so many and sent many home vent free. The hardest part was call outs by fellow respiratory staff, be cause the work load was so heavy. There were days when two respiratory staff would have the vent unit, ER and medical floors to cover and delivery – more... neb treatments, arterial blood gases would need to be drawn and ran and results given to physician. Changing out of equipment per protocol and chart auditing and orders taken and written for physicians. I became a team leader while working there and had a great relationship with the pulmnologists. They relied upon my recommendations of weaning per patient and trusted my judgement. The most enjoyable part was the satisfaction of helping the respiratory patient get some quality of life back after all the hard work of weaning. – less
