Medical Records Clerk at Ellis Hospital. EMR records were not implimented yet.
Medical Records Associate (Former Employee), Schenectady, NYAugust 20, 2015
Pros: I was in an office with three other very nice ladies who helped me quite a bit when I first started, The cafeteria food was delicious.
Cons: The only con to me was the 45 minute drive to work. Winter was a bit scary.
A typical day at my Job was assembly and analysis of Medical Records and asking doctors for signatures on reports that were forgotten.
Management was wonderful and I learned quite a bit from them on doing my job faster. My co-workers were always ready to help all employees.
The hardest part of my job was actually taking turns working a Saturday shift. The hours were not too likable: 2:30-11:00 pm.
What I liked about my job was the hospital atmosphere.

Poor communication. No room for advancement. rivalry among departments. physicians are allowed to berate staff with little to no reprimand. salary doesn't match demand or work description.

Seeking employment in a physically active job position
Central Scheduling (Current Employee), Schenectady, NYOctober 1, 2014
Pros: fair, friendly and compassionate management/good health benefits
Cons: poor healthcare/retirement benefits
I enjoy my current job position. I enjoy the customer service end of the position and feel that this is most important in happy customers for a comfortable return to use Ellis Hospital's facilities. The hardest part of the job is trying to reach departments by phone in general and in STAT situations. The hospital seems to be understaffed all the way around. I enjoy all of my coworkers and I am a person who treats everyone with equality, respect and compassion. I get along with everyone, do not hold grudges or have a poor attitude toward anyone at all including management. I began my employment at Ellis right out of high school and felt the importance of job dedication and have been employed there for 39 yrs. My reason for seeking employment is to find a job closer to home and also a job that is physically active rather than a desk job. I would very much enjoy working with the public in some way, I love people and have great customer service skills. I would enjoy transporting patients or any other job that would be active with/without public connection. I have learned a lot since I transferred from the billing dept to Central Scheduling and enjoy this job very much. Again, I feel the need to have a more physically active job. I do not wish to have a job position in billing as I spent 37 yrs doing that and would like a change alltogether. In my current position I especially enjoy the contact with elderly patients and it is another option for a job position to work with them in some way that makes a difference in their lives. My high quality in my current job is customer service skills. A job outside the medical field is also an option.

Summary for Per Diem, Chaplain
Per Diem Chaplain (Current Employee), Schenectady, NYSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: free dinner and breakfast for chaplains.
Cons: low pay, cafe closes extremely early.
I love this hospital, but disagree with slashing the pastoral care budget. The manager of the department is a wonderful person and an awesome spiritual leader and chaplain. I am sad that the hospital management does not value the pastor care department and how much hope it can bring to people who are sick or caring for a loved one.

Exhausting but rewarding
Staff Nurse (Current Employee), Schenectady, NYSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: direct patient care with the sense of making a difference
Cons: it is a very physically demanding job, especially at 62 years of age
A typical consisted of 1 to 4 patients per RN in ICU setting. We cared for medical and surgical ICU patients including intra aortic balloon pump patients and continuous renal replacement patients. The teamwork at Ellis was the strongest point. The hardest part was the times of staff turnover and development of a new "team".
