Job Work/Life Balance
Productive and fun working environment
Student Pharmacist (Former Employee), Glendale, CA – June 13, 2013
A typical day at work is to fill medical cassettes and crash carts. I delivered boxes filled with medications for specific emergency purposes to various locations within the hospital. I've gained experience of working at a hospital as a pharmacy intern. My co-workers were easy to talk to and knew how to enjoy their day in the midst of mundane tasks. – more... The hardest part of my job was that I wasn't getting paid since it is a part of IPPE curriculum at school. The most enjoyable part of the job is to hear praises of my co-workers as I diligently and efficiently finish the tasks that needed to be done. – less
Unit Support Coordinator (Former Employee), Takoma Park, MD – May 1, 2013
Pros: making people smile.
Cons: working nights
My day is typically fast paced, I learned to multitask and prioritize my work load, essentially making a productive work week. I do my best to lead by example which primarily creates a healthy work environment amongst my team-member of co-workers.
The hardest part of my day is early evenings, when everything is concurrent, shift change, patient been – more... discharged, visitors. etc
What I enjoy the most from my job is knowing that I have made a patient feel better, giving the circumstances they are in. – less
Billing Coordinator (Former Employee), Glendale, CA – April 30, 2013
Performed general billing functions and patient file management. Completed insurance paperwork necessary for collecting from insurance companies. Performed Cash/Adjustment Posting, filing, typing, and mailing as well as reception duties.
Enjoyable place to work with an amazing display of teamwork!
Registered Nurse- Coronary Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee), Glendale, CA – April 26, 2013
Pros: teamwork, employee recognition, encouragement to be involved in the betterment of the hospital as a whole.
Cons: short breaks, occasional instances of a high census with inadequate staffing, low salary wages.
A typical night at work entails huddling with all of the nurses on duty for the night and getting a condensed report concerning each individual patient admitted to the unit by the outgoing charge nurse. I then get a detailed report on the 2 patients assigned to me or the single patient assigned to me depending on acuity from the outgoing nurse. After – more... the bedside report, I review my orders, print out my task lists and do my initial patient(s) assessments. Soon after, I begin to administer medications and take care of the various tasks on my task lists. I also talk to my fellow bedside nurses, physicians, pharmacists, laboratory technicians, respiratory therapists, my charge nurse, our monitor technician and family members based on the sequence of events that take place.
I have learned that nothing is black and white in the field of nursing. I have learned to be extremely flexible and be prepared for anything that falls on my lap by God's grace. I have learned that without God to support, guide and inspire me, it would be extremely challenging to keep doing this job as long as I have.
Management I believe is approachable but I don't get to interact with those members of upper management much as I work the night shift. My closest interaction with management occurs on a weekly basis when I have the opportunity to speak with my nurse manager about concerns I may have or during yearly evaluations.
My colleagues are amazing! They're very knowledgeable. The teamwork and camaraderie that exists between us is definitely a huge plus and its a blessing to know that someone always has your best interest in mind and is willing to lend a hand even without you asking.
The hardest part of the job for me is witnessing the decline or death of a patient I've cared for and built and attachment to.
The most enjoyable part of the job is essentially the opposite. Watching patients slowly but surely recover and thrive to the point of discharge to a step down unit, a home health care facility or their private residence. I most definitely also enjoy helping my colleagues or their patients when the need arises even without being prompted or asked to do so. – less

REGISTRATION ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Glendale, CA – March 7, 2013
Pros: we got a 20% discount on our lunches. we had excellent health benefits.
Cons: we had to pay for our own parking
Clock in there was a great timekeeping system. Log in to my computer and start doing registration for patients. Collecting demographics and verifying insurance. Some of the coworkers were very helpful. My most enjoyable part of the job was helping the patients. The hardest part of the job was dealing with lazy coworkers and I felt like I had to do most – more... of the work, but I would do it anyway to help the patients. – less
LPN (Former Employee), Zephyrhills, FL – January 13, 2013
Pros: a few former colleagues
Cons: upper management, training, very clique - ish!
If you aren't part of the "clique" @ Zephyrhills Health and Rehab, then you are on the outside of everything! Management is not proficient and they put their staff nurses in critical situations & then question every move that they make. No support from upper management, unless you are family & then you can do no wrong. If there is a c/o for nights, – more... make sure (if you're a noc nurse) to SILENCE all forms of communication b/c this place will BLOW UP your phone.! Not unusual to have 6-10 calls in a matter of hours! Start an evening shift with 20-45 patients, maybe have a med nurse for 3 hours & then back to the overload again. Only ONE CNA per hall & most nights, your "break" is spent working! This place has unrealistic expectations & ZERO TRAINING /SUPPORT! You will end up with an ulcer & looking over your shoulder, worried about your license at the Zhills facility! – less
Very professional with all the lastest advances in medicine
Staff Nurse Per Diem Critical Care Float Pool (Former Employee), Glendale, CA – December 7, 2012
This hospital was such a great place to work, especially right out of nursing school. There were incredible job and educational opportunities. I learned more here than at any other place I worked. I received training with IntraAortic Balloon Pump monitoring while on the critical care float pool, and was chosen to manage these patients when they came – more... to the MICU. The learning curve was exciting for me and I loved the diversity my job offered. I truly miss this hospital. – less
