Great atmosphere for learning and helping patients
Occupational Therapy Student (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – May 3, 2016
A typical day started with chart reviews, followed by evaluations and treatments. During lunch, I would document regarding my morning patients. After lunch, I would continue evaluations and treatments. At the end of the day I would finish documentation and assess patients for discharge. I learned acute care regarding orthopedics and neurological diagnoses. Management was appropriate in terms of supervision vs autonomy. Co-workers were my favorite part of the job! The hardest part of the job was evaluating neurological patients for goal-setting. The most enjoyable part of the job were the patients and co-workers.

East Jefferson was a great place to work. No, drama. My supervisor was so amazing and understanding when I had to quit. I loved my coworkers. The patients were the hardest part of the day. It is really hard to please everybody but, we try.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – March 28, 2016
One of the few places operating after Katrina, it was a familial atmosphere as most hospitals tend to be. There was a support system for employees to ensure that they were managing well and that they could cope with life during the cities rebuild.
Great healthcare and great community feel for employees. Allowed and encouraged further education and advancement.
Great employee events, healthcare, education opportunities
East Jefferson was a fast paced facility and a great working enviroment.

EMS Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – December 2, 2015
when i did work for the hospital over 5 years ago it was an excellent place to work at, the pay was excellent as well!! i am still a patient of the hospital and so are my children its excellent in health care!
The staff at East Jeff is great. However, East Jefferson doesn't give raises. They have market increases. So if you there isn't a market increase in the area, you could be stuck at the same pay for years.
Pre-Registration III (Current Employee) – Metairie,LA – June 23, 2015
My day would start with be bringing up my patient list for the day to make sure any late add-ons are verified and taken care of before they come in. Then, I start on the upcoming list, I try to stay at least a month ahead, that way it is easier to come in and do the add-ons and then do a day in advance. I check the test the patients are having, and then the insurance verify that and if the test requires an authorization and obtain that, and if compliance is needed do that. I check all my work for the next day to assure all the authorizations are done and that all patients that needed to be called on to let them know of the charges that is due or to make payment on test. Management of my job is to make sure I have things in order before I leave for the day. The hardest part of the job could be when I am unable to get an authorization on a test when the patient is sent right over from a doctors office, in a timely manner. Then most enjoyable part of the job is that I complete my job and that I do a good job.
The last two years really has not been a fun place to work.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – June 19, 2015
Start your day with report Ratio 6-1 Nurse. We bring babies to nursery for Pediatrician to examine, then back to mom .Rooming in encouraged Lab work drawn in rooms if okay with parents. circumcisions in nursery Breast feeding assistance Newborn Medications Discharge instructions Co-workers were good, some not so much. Management since February poor. Transitioning babies with parents in L&D was the most difficult with many deliveries, most of the time one nurse did everything baby needed.Management did not offer help often. The most enjoyable part of my job was actually hands on taking care of these little miracles.
The only perk left at EJ was that Senority played a part in able to take off some Holidays
Patient Access Representative (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – May 29, 2015
Typical work day was always interesting and fun. Learning something new is always a positive part of the day. I learned how to deal with patients who are highly uncomfortable being in a hospital and who have no patience. Most of my co-workers were very friendly and loved working with me as a team. the most enjoyable part of my job was getting to know my patients and their different stories. I'm a people person so that was where my gratification came from. Hardest part of the job was seeing the negative side of healthcare.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Metarie,La – March 25, 2015
A typical day at this particular job requires lots of records keeping,alertness, and teamwork. I learned that on this job and any job teamwork makes everything else work. The people you work with are key components to a productive day.
Corporate Wellness Lead (Current Employee) – Metairie, LA – March 24, 2015
Each day I open up the facility, make sure everything is in order and ready to go for the day. I work on planning events for the wellness program, track visits for the Jefferson Parish Fire Department (JPFD) wellness program, coordinate scheduling for JPFD testing and nutrition counseling, conduct strength and conditioning classes, track data, input charges, and assist employees that have questions about health and wellness. I learned how to manage my time and supervise others. I am in charge of multiple programs here and have exceeded at running the programs. My co-workers are great to be around and all have a hand in daily tasks to make sure things run smoothly. The hardest part of my job is trying to keep people interested in the wellness program and drive up participation. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I get to help people achieve their wellness goals.
Very laid back environment, great benefits, complete your tasks at your own pace
Patient Access Representative (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – February 16, 2015
Company was very professional and benefits were ok. Pay range was not sufficient for duties. The most enjoyable part of this job was the employees were so friendly to each other and customers. I enjoyed working with the patients.
Typical day at work, can depend on the work load for that day, if the census is high the work will be consistent, if the census is low, look forward to being flexed (sent home, hours cut, taken off the schedule). I did learn how to use the pyxsis machine and a new machine that dispensed the medication. Some co-workers were ok to work with, others were great! The hospital need to put in place management classes for the managers, to teach them how to manage people properly, i.e. communicate with their employees as adults etc, skip the favoritism. The hardest part of the job was seeing patients expire, the most enjoyable part was interacting with the patients and families and being able to pray with some of the families, laugh, cry and celebrate with them.
good free lunches from the reps, luv alot of the nurses they rock
short lunches, pay, no advancement, hard to transfer to other departments, cafeteria food
EMT (Current Employee) – Metairie, LA – January 15, 2015
There is no typical day in EMS. I work with a great variety of people. I have learned from them and I have learned from patients. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people. I have made new friends. I have experienced things which I will never forget. Management does a great job. There are many of us to manage.
