Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Columbus, OH – March 31, 2014
Pros: it was always a busy day.
Cons: because of my husbands duty change i had to leave a great job.
Arrive around to work around 7:15 am; set up my computer and print the days schedule and review to check if any patients were added or dropped from the schedule after I left for the day. A quick check of all rooms to make sure the light were on and they were cleaned. depending on how many doctors were seeing patients that day divide the rooms so that – more... each other will be able to see a patients and have another patients waiting on the next room to speed up the day and they will be able to stay on schedule. As patients arrive, I would room them, take vitals review med list and refills; if the patient was new I would make sure we knew who was the referring doctor and if they had a studies with them. If a patients is an emergency room follow up, we would make sure the computer was set up for the doctor so that he would be able to review his dictations/ notes If we had any post surgery or procedure patients we had to make sure all consent forms were signed by the patients by the time the doctor got to them. once the patient was done I would either schedule a follow appointment and schedule them for any lab or study they needed to get done. – less

Registered Nurse - ED (Current Employee), Columbus, Ohio – November 9, 2013
I learn something new everyday. The most important value I have learned in working in a Level One Trauma Center ER is how important teamwork is. Great team work means great patient care! Working in the ER shows and challenges to be on your A game; peoples lives are in your hand. You must be a 'jack of all trades'.
A typical day at work would include, using aseptic technique in the IV room, compounding IV drips for patients, filling crash carts, delivering meds all over the hospital (including narcotics), responding to codes and level one traumas. I learned more about the pharmacy lifestyle outside of retail pharmacy. My coworkers were awesome, management was – more... good most of the time. Working in a level one trauma center can be a stressful job at times but still enjoyable. – less
Pros: health insurance, 3 twelve hour shifts, and trauma team.
Cons: short staff during busy seasons, on occasion a negative environment, and at times no breaks during shift.
The first day I walked into Grant Medical Center for a clinical rotation I knew I wanted to work there and I was hired as a student and continued to work there for several more years until my relocation to Tennessee. I learned and grew so much while working at Grant. I worked with a versatile group of healthcare professionals and patients. I loved working – more... there, especially when everyone was getting along together. The one thing I noticed that really bothered me was individuals causing damage to their coworkers to either cover themselves or advance. My favorite part of my job was working on the trauma team and in the emergency room. Since Grant is a large, teaching hospital I was given the opportunity to participate in areas I would not in other places. The hardest part of my job was working in the NICU. – less

I LEARNED A LOT FROM BEING WITH GRANT, LIKE MY FIRST CODE BLUE EXPERIENCE, I WAS TERRIFIED BUT HAD THE ADRENALINE RUSH AT THE SAME TIME.

I had the pleasure of working in the Trauma Unit, the ICU and the ER Observation Unit during my employment at Grant Medical Center.

Pros: interacting with both the staff and the patiance
Cons: something was always breaking down, a computer or the dish machine.
I really enjoyed my co-workers and my managers, they made the day go fast with their wild sense of humor. And serving the patiance was very rewarding because most of them were so apprecative when you came with there food.
Staff RN (Current Employee), Columbus, Ohio – February 18, 2013
Healthcare is HARD, especially when your customers aren't the nicest of people. The staff here are amazing, and the management tries to help, even though they're often drowning in administrative tasks.
Pay is average, as are benefits. Major advantage is not having to rotate shifts! Don't plan on too much movement once you're in - HR ignores everyone – more... equally whether internal or external candidate.
Overall, the culture is hopeful. I think there are good people trying as best they can with what they have. Proud to be struggling along side these guys and gals. – less
