Externship Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Sarye, Pa – October 30, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: little to no breaks
a typical day at work would contain taking care of patients needs such as bathing, dressing and prepping for any procured that they may be going for. I learned how to manage my time, take Blood pressures, pulse, temperatures, EKG's, and check blood sugars on patients. On of the challenge of the job is the time management between work and family. The – more... most enjoyable part of the job is meeting so many different people and helping them. – less
Fast pace and challenging job that pushes me to grow personally and professionally everyday I work.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Corning, NY – August 7, 2013
Pros: offers personal growth, offers professional growth, challenging, rewarding
Cons: unpredictable, stressful, 24 hours a day, work holidays
A typical work day at Guthrie Healthcare Systems includes assisting an unknown number of patients that present with simple to very critical health problems. I have to make their visit positive while doing the same with family members. Co-workers can be challenging as some of them have worked there longer than I have and don't believe change can be good. – more... I have learned to be patient with them, patients, family and myself. The hardest part of my job is staying positive during some of the most stressful moments of an ER. The most enjoyable part of my job is the satisfaction of knowing that I made a difference in a person's life, no matter how minor it might seem to me. – less
Don't follow the values and Mission Statement set by Sayre
RFCO (Former Employee), Ithaca – February 22, 2013
Pros: some good doctors and nurses
Cons: forgotten patients, aren't notified when appts. cancelled, too much gossip.
Ithaca Office - Catty women HIPPA violations Patients waiting for an hour or more - Arrived and forgotten Trained in Sayre and everything done differently in Ithaca. Would not want to be a patient there knowing that the office help, LPN's, etc. are talking about you. SS# are given where everyone can hear. Administrator does not deal with the "real" – more... problems. Hardest part....using my integrity, morals and ethics when many lack the same. Stressful, blaming others, no one wants to say "I'm sorry, I made a mistake". It is always someone elses fault. I understand that this type of thing happens in other medical facilities. – less
