It seems to be that if you ever worked at Fannin Regional and tried to return applying for job that you did before the Human Resource department will send you a notice within 24hrs saying you do not qualify but you did the job for seven years. A sorry human being to do others that way.
Pros
no pros for working there
Cons
low pay and disrespect from management

Full Time, PBX Operator (Former Employee) –  Blue Ridge, GAJune 14, 2013
A typical day at work....there wasn't a typical day. The hospital was going through many changes of guard and the day to day was hectic. The rules of how we were to accomplish our daily tasks were changed sometimes weekly, sometimes daily. In the time that I was with CHS (Fannin Regional Hospital & Hidden Valley Medical) the CEO of our facility changed three times, and our CFO changed four. Management was under a great deal of stress because of the on going changes, we all tried to be helpful. The business of the hospital taught me how to effectively process claims, and how to effectively assist the doctors and coding staff. The people at the hospital taught me about community and caring about people in a way that is different from but, akin to family and friends. The hardest part of the job was two fold, losing patients was definitely the hardest on the personal side, they were our extended family and their loss was felt in every department. It was a small facility, and a small town, we all knew each other and it was heart breaking sometimes. The second part was advancement and job security, the hospital was going through financial hard times and it was known in no uncertain terms that you could be replaced and that promotion was not probable because, there was no money for pay increases. My favorite part of the job was the staff, the underlings, we were a family, I also enjoyed talking to people all day long on the phone as PBX operator.
Pros
patient care, feeling useful, sense of family
Cons
no advancement, miniscule pay raises, very short breaks (unless you were a smoker), job security

Emergency Department Admissions Clerk (Current Employee) –  Blue Ridge, GAApril 19, 2013
I work weekend shift Friday 3-11 then flip and do Saturday and Sunday 7a-7p. I am responsible for all Admissions, Discharges, Collections and registrations throughout the hospital all weekend. I am the only switch board operator throughout the hospital so very busy typically. I have learned that you can do 5 things at one time. The hardest part is when you have 5 people checking in, 5 people checking out and the phone is ringing continuously. The most enjoyable part is helping others.
Pros
helping others
Cons
the flip on friday is just not compatible with my son i am away from him about 24 hours.
