Worked 3 twelve hour shifts in ICU/CCU. Management was good. Co-workers helpful. Hardest part of the job was getting use to caring for critical patients after several years working in L&D. I enjoyed all the knowledge I gained.
The day begins with assigning therapist inpatients and preparing for outpatient services. Verify and obtain insurance authorization. Register incoming patients. Answer incoming calls. Distribute mail. Complete patient referrals to department. Type memos, letters and minutes of meetings. Take calls regarding patient care. Edit and adjust payroll as needed. Schedule patients for follow up appointments. File patient charts. Enter patient charges, enter therapists productivity and enter patients attending the Joint Replacement Education Class. Maintain office and medical supplies for the department.
Free parking, an hour for lunch, up to 8 weeks paid vacation, 6 holidays and 3 personal days per calendar year, location, view of harbor.
Renal Pulmonary, Bio - Hazard Unit (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – April 23, 2014
Harbor Hospital is a busy rewarding place to work. Every day you learn something new. Management and your co-workers are always there for you. The hardest part of the job is the loss of life.The most enjoyable part of the job is being part of saving someone's life, helping someone manage their chronic disease flare ups or new symptoms. Harbor Hospital staff is friendly and helps each other from the environmental services to the physicians and management staff.
Echocardiographer (Current Employee) – Baltimore – February 11, 2014
After working for Medstar for over 7/8years and completing half of the process needed for accreditation and meeting every bar set and empty promise for advancement , they turn around and hire outside of Medstar. They do NOT value or appreciate the years you put in , and overlook there employee to hire outside of company. No room for advancement Management does not listen to you and is too bothered to;has attitude when you call to ask for question. Human resources is just the same and is not people friendly to employee does everything they can for the hospital forget the employee. The management plays politics so if your not in the" click" your life is miserable while the incompetent get promoted. It took 7 years to finally get a improvement for the echo techs which was a gel warmer which was like pulling teeth and even the other director from another department was going to eggy out of his budget, since ours keep saying he would but never did. The echo director is also discriminate against females. Nothing is done for the echo techs never upgraded to improve tech work environment. Promised now 4 years to paint the lab which is a dark room in basement with no windows no educational posters for patient. You are expected unrealistic workloads and arm fatigue is never addressed. No break room no refrigerator No place to lock your things except under sink which technically joint commission says nothing should be there. No technician appreciation Expensive cafeteria You are not paid accordingly to surrounding facility's this is lowest.
echo machine gets a portable worklist
lowest pay ; no advancement no break room no place to lock your valuables no appreciation .., .. list keeps going
RN (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 13, 2013
I worked as an RN at this hospital for almost 6 years. Absolutely no room for advancement. Management cares more about where staff wears their badge than they do patient care. Too many budget cuts affecting patient care. MUCH nicer hospitals with more support for nurses. Glad to be gone.
Enjoyed this job, learned alot about patient care during my tenor here
Patient Care Associate (PCA) (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – August 8, 2013
I was a tech here for 7 years full time and 2 years prn. Although it was hard work and sometimes back breaking work I enjoyed it very much. I love hands on patient care and it was here where I learned to perfect my skills of patient care.
I enjoyed this joy as well, again made friends. I learned the different aspects of working in a hospital setting that was small. The management was fine, no problem we all worked together as co-workers. The hardest part was hours being cut and having to work split schedule.
made friends, worked in a smaller hospital setting
