Pros: variety of cases, free parking! family feel environment
Cons: short staffed, not enough ancillary help.
I have been working 3-11p.m. shift for almost 8 years now, sometimes doing other shifts when asked, and what i like most about my job is that we do many different types of surgery, but it is still specialized care and it makes for a very caring environment and draws people who really want to make a difference. You are not just a number at Fox Chase, but people know your name, and care what happens to you. My supervisor is very kind and always available to us. Our surgeons are knowledgeable, witty, and sometimes alot of fun. The hardest part of the job is seeing some of the sickest people being rolled into our OR for surgery, knowing that there is only so much that can be done for them because the cancer is too far advanced, but as a team we all try to do our very best everyday. I have learned true endurance from working here, and what it means to be grateful. I have been humbled by our patients, and the fighting spirit of our team in the daily care we do our best to give.
