Registered Nurse, ICU (Former Employee), Ft Myers – December 26, 2013
Moved from another state to accept FT nursing position in ICU. Fired when season was over and patient population dropped. Lee Memorial has a monopoly on hospitals in Lee County, all but one are owned by LMH. If you're terminated from one, you have no options. The ICU at GCMC is HUUUUGE. 32 beds in 3 sections. They have a high patient turnover and you – more... never have the same patient twice for a full shift. Constant admit and transfer. No continuity of care. Insurance companies dictate all care. So if you have little or no insurance, you don't get the same care as the snowbird next door. – less
Gulf Coast Medical Center is a very enjoable workplace.
Registered Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Panama City, FL – July 31, 2013
Pros: working with a great team and ensuring that patients get better
Cons: knowing some patients are terminal
Gulf Coast Medical Center is a wonderful hospital. Top 100 in the area. Their facility works as a whole. Starting with the Physicians down to the valet parking. There is not one person at that hospital that doesn't have a great attitude knowing and living our core values. I have learned a lot at this job, considering I came from a retail background. – more... A in house facility is very different compared to assisting the public. we have the best team of pharmacists, technicians, clinical pharmacists, and management. I think that the hardest part of the job is the emergency orders(stat) that come from the ER. Handling them is very enjoyable and gratifying. – less
ER Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FL – July 28, 2013
Pros: new facility
Cons: a lot of changes
It was nice working in a new facility. What a break, not to have to deal with old, outdated machinery. The staff was a combination of new and old and we learned together. Management changed while I was there and has since changed again. There are a lot of changes going on in the department.
Registered Nurse ER / ER Admit (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FL – June 3, 2013
everyday is an experience to learn as the people around you are always willing to help and teach. management isnt high and mighty but eye to eye willing to work shoulder to shoulder. The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job are the patients the ones that refuse to learn and the ones accept the help and learn a little more about themselves.
Radiologic Technologist, Per Diem (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FL – May 6, 2013
Pros: digital xray equipment, helpful co-workers, wide variety of patients
Cons: competitive hours
Working at GCMC was a great experience. I learned so much and got to work with great techs! The hardest part of the job was seeing my patients suffer. The most enjoyable part of working at GCMC was the strong learning environment and positive co-workers.
House Supervisor (Current Employee), Wharton, TX – March 16, 2013
Pros: meeting people
Cons: very rarely getting lunch or a bathroom break and no help when we need it
We take care of all kinds, from scrapes to MI's to Strokes, and also deaths. I feel I learn something new everyday, and have been told by a past instructor that you should learn something new everyday and when you stop learning then it is time to get out of nursing. I enjoy working with people and my coworkers. My job is hard and sometimes thankless, – more... but at the end of the day we have saved and helped lives. – less
Secretary/ Food Service (Current Employee), Panama, OK – March 5, 2013
Pros: the customers
Cons: the pay
I come in set up for lunch putting the food out and the salad bar then I would make sure everything is stocked. During lunch I will make sure the food and salad bar stays filled up. Checking to make sure all my customers are happy. Then I would close the cafeteria and go into the office. I proceed in there to do my cashier deposits getting them ready – more... for the bank to pick the cash up the next day. I copy and file the invoices putting them in the computer software. I also put in other information in the computer. – less
productive work days with a great family atmosphere
