Gundersen Health System Review
Patient Service Specialist (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – April 26, 2015
A typical day at work can be difficult to predict. Since I am cross trained in several areas within my department, I go wherever I am needed. I tend to relocate from my scheduled post fairly often to cover other areas that require my immediate attention. I have learned that it really pays off to take the initiative to connect with the patients and visitors each day, and it is a privilege going to work everyday knowing that I am going to be helping someone out with an immediate need. I have also learned that having great communication skills with my management is helpful, and I have been honored to have a great administration working over me. My co-workers know they can rely on me anytime they ask for my support, and I will work to the best of my ability everyday we are stationed together. Since I work in a healthcare setting, it can be slightly saddening when a patient I've been working with passes away. That has definitely been a downfall to the healthcare venue, but my enjoyment of helping the patients definitely outweighs my remorse of the folks we lose.
There are several opportunities for growth, and Gundersen Health System is a great company to work for.
The inconsistency in my schedule can oftentimes alter my sleep schedule, and the changes in the schedule can be a challenge to get used to.
