Open work environment, and very joyful and respectful people to work with.
Medical Assistant Extern (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 22, 2016
There was no typical day at work when it came to my externship with Gentiva Hospice. I was able to work in the office, out on the field visiting patients in multiple locations, or at their 24/7 outpatient clinic. I enjoyed working there during my externship, and was glad that I was able to make a difference in peoples lives. My coworkers were very respectful, and hardworking. I am glad that I had the opportunity to work with such fun, caring people. The hardest part of the job, i would say; was the organization of papers, files, and taking inventory for the supplies. The most enjoyable part of the job is visiting the patients, and being able to have music therapy with some of the patients. And to be able to see the change in their character, and see that the music triggers a certain memory which they cherished; it was quite rewarding really. It gave me a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Lunch was sometimes provided, the employees were very nice and helpful, the office was a clean/ organized environment
I had to use my own transportation to visit the patients.
