Productive and caring, sometimes.
Pros: For my "student transport job" NONE!
Cons: No pay raises, no bonus checks, no PTO, no healthcare benefit, not a thing.
There are good days and bad days. The good days where I don't hiccup a thing, forgetting a chart on a rushed and busy day, or being told to grab 5 different patients at one time and trying to juggle which one is ready, where's the nurse, what am i having to wait on, are they bed bound or get in a wheel chair. Taking me a while to grab one, and if they don't get theirs first or soon enough I get the heat.
What I learned, no matter how good you work or try, it's not good enough. But i do what i am required and i try my best.
Management, this is okay, the manager of our department tries to be fair and honest with all of his employees.
Co-workers, they're fun, talkative, helpful/
The hardest part of the job is, getting many different patients for 5 different people at one time, while I'm busy looking for a patient's chart, or nurse, the doctor's in the room, etc. They call and page me to hurry up. I am the only evening transporter and they're several techs downstairs who can help, I understand im the transporter, but helping would be nice, anyways, getting a patient that is needed, but not the one someone asked first, getting onto you for being too slow, not grabbing their patient. Scolding and getting onto you, while you can't say anything back, you just get back to it.
But what I do enjoy, is the fun, responsive, and enjoyable patients that talk on the way down to their test area or rooms. Giving me advice as to what to be ready for in life, tips on how to take care of cars, those things. Patients that don't let the hospital stop them from being fun and outgoing. That's what I enjoy.
