Patient Access Financial Specialist (Current Employee), Buffalo, NY – September 1, 2014
Pros: wide diversity of patient base and endless learning possiblities
Cons: lack of staffing makes it hard to participate in the many company outings offered
The ED at ECMC is a very busy place. My job requires me to be fast paced and efficient with attention to detail and well rounded because we see every type of patient. Like most successful businesses, it also requires the entire staff to work together in order to complete the task of getting the patient(s) the treatment they need, in a timely fashion – more... and ensuring that their privacy is upheld, as well as ensuring that the hospital can get paid for the treatment, which in turn ensures that all of the providers and staff receive compensation for their hard work. The hardest part of my job is when everyone needs to be in the room at the same time, it is a very small room and many people make it difficult to move around, but you find ways to make it work. The most enjoyable part of the job is satisfaction of knowing I've done a good job. – less

Cons: constant movement
A typical day at work started between 9 and 10 am and ended between 5 and 6 pm.

The average work day consisted of preparing trays for patients. Loading the carts for each floor with proper food according to each diet. Delivering carts to each floor and occasionally to each room.

The co-workers were pretty decent. Most of them coming from the same areas I grew up in. Management was very nice. A group of older women who showed a lot of love and understanding of ones abilities and personal issues. The hardest part of the job was working short hours for very little pay.

ECMC is a great place to work in that the compensation and benefits are top notch. Many coworkers have a team approach to completing tasks and lateral violence is minimal where I work. However there is significant turn over and decrease in employee satisfaction especially in Behavioral Health. Safety is a huge issue and staff do not feel full measures – more... are being taken to prevent patient on staff violence. Patients are coming n increasingly more dangerous and decompensated. They are under medicated and the progressive techniques staff are supposed to use arent especially effective. It is difficult to get upper management to really address this. – less
