FAHC was an exciting environment to work in, as the ability to work and continue to learn was a daily activity. I truly enjoyed my career and my employer for the advancements and opportunities they offer their staff.
I worked in Patient Financial Services. The manager of that department is one of the kindest, sweetest people, I have ever worked for. She has a complete understanding of what is needed. She backs her employees up 100%. When you start your position, your training is thorough and complete. Loved the job.
FAHC now University of Vermont Medical Center has for the most part been a great place to work. Great bunch of teammates and managers on average. The job of nurses aid comes with both physical and emotional challenges working very closely with the patient population. But is can be a very rewarding career.
job security, good cafeteria, role always in demand, great benefits
A Senior Code Alert Operator (Former Employee) – Burlington, VT – June 14, 2015
I loved working with Fletcher Allen Healthcare and taking care of patients, hospitals, doctors needs. I am a people oriented person and take great pride in helping others. This job was fulfilling and challenging and I left work every day knowing that I had helped others.
Great benefits, great personnel
Management needed to address urgent issues rather than put them off till later
Day to day a supported work environment from management to co-workers. Providing care, support and supervision for patients. I am constantly learning from the nursing staff, management and other staff members. Although days may be similar, each day has it's own set of dynamics and needs to constantly be evaluated. The hardest part of the job would be sitting at night for extended periods of time. The part that is most enjoyable is to understand more about mental health, and to know that we have a part in the daily care that helps each patient attain their baseline and be ready for discharge.
Typical day was going to my station and doing my duties. I learned MOAB training, and lots of computer skills. Management was great. My co-workers were great to work with and I learned alot from them. They were very helpful. The hardest part of the job was putting patients in 4-point restraints. I most enjoyed meeting/talking with visitors, patients and co-workers.
Intern (Current Employee) – Burlington, VT – July 22, 2014
My typical day was cutting or embedding surgicals, biopsies, and autopsies in the morning. In the afternoon I would study for my HT exam or I would work triage. This is where the slides are sent through the the automatic stainer then coverslipped, scanned into the system and sent out to the Pathologists. Everyone I worked with was very helpful and kind. The hardest part was trying to catch up to speed with everyone and learning a bunch of new things at once. The most enjoyable part was being able to experience the job field and improving my skills.
lead Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Burlington, VT – February 10, 2014
It could be very sad at times to work. Working with Cancer patients is difficult but we always tried to make it fun. They enjoyed that about us. I really enjoy working with them they are amazing people. The staff are great to. Trying to find fun things to do to break up the saddness. I learned that life is short and you need to live everyday like it is your last. Management was great until about a year ago then we got a supervisor who truly did not understand the clinic part of what we do. The most enjoyable part is the patients of course they are why I would get out of bed every morning.
This is a great company to work for. They care about their employees and about their patients. The hardest part about this job is trying to work with patients that are upset and struggling to pay their medical bills, it also can be the most rewarding part when I am able to help a patient through difficult insurance issues or get assistance with their balances.
LNA (Former Employee) – Burlington, VT – November 19, 2013
It was a very fast paced environment. Working as a team was crucial for communication to be open between the LNAs and the RNs its the only way to we could provide excellent care to our patients, It was an inpatient rehab facility so our goal was to help our patients return to their home life as safely as possible.
building relationships with coworkers and patients
