CHAPLAIN RESIDENT (Current Employee), Hartford, CTJuly 6, 2015
Pros: Allowed to be a chaplain and provide care for patietns.
Cons: Currently in a cost cutting period
Maybe not in all of the departments but in the pastoral services this is a great lace to work. Htere is a team atmosphere where everyine is willing to pitch in. At times there is way to much to do for the level of staff however, Patient care is a priority and the focus of the department. A typical day involves evrything from routine padtoral care to caring for trauma victims. The interdisciplinary cooperation is remarkable and everyone is valued here.

Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Hartford ctJune 22, 2015
Pros: decent benefits
Cons: short breaks, no breaks
i worked as a floor/stepdown nurse. I would also be charge nurse at times as well as having an assignment. I worked on a cardiothoracic floor taking care of pts who were post open heart surgery. I worked nights and at times pts were very sick. Sometimes pts had to go to the ICU. Its hard to be a nurse but its also very rewarding and that goes for any nursing job.

Front Desk
psr (Former Employee), Meriden, CTJune 14, 2015
Pros: 4 weeks vacation
Cons: never got to take full lunch
In the am always came in half hr early to do things to get ready for day. First the patients come in we admit them on the computer then call the PTS to let them know they are here. Take phone calls for new patients. We take all info put into computer and set them up with appointment. Call insurance to find out what benefits they have. Greet customers coming in if they need anything before they see their PT. Clean up patient and work area. We had great coworkers always tried to work together to make patients happy. My boss was great with taking care of any issues we had of had and always was there with open ear. The hardest was customers that were uncooperative when they were told about insurance process. I love working with people.

Hartford Hosp.
Unit Aide (Former Employee), Hartford, CTJune 1, 2015
Most of the staff that i worked with were nice and reliable, others however, I felt acted like high schoolers... rude and self centered.
Managers I've had were nice and were open to hear what we had to say. The pay was fair in account of what I had as a position.

Patient Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Hartford, CTJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: meeting new patients and families
Cons: passing of patients
I have learned so much over the years working at Hartford Hospital. A typical day at work for me would have been answering incoming calls, Also answering the patients call bell. We would discharge about 15 to 20 patients a day and also have about the same amount of patients incoming. Best part about the job was meeting new people and making a difference in those in need of time. I would have to say the hardest part about the job was the passing of a patient whom could have been on your unit for 3 to 6 months. The most enjoyable part about the job was waking up every morning and walking into a place you loved also hearing positive feedback. Management was supportive in time of need they would be right besides the nurses or the unit secretary making sure if we needed a helping hand we definitely could of reached out.My Co-workers were the best there was never a time were your job title made anyone better then anyone or senority everyone was respectful we all were there for the same reasons ,Weather your a RN or a PCA or the unit Secretary you wouldn't hear "that's not my job". If there was down time and you could of helped out a co- worker it was not an issue. I learned that nothing is ever promised and always expect the unexpective.

Registering patients
Financial Counselor (Current Employee), Hartford, CTJanuary 4, 2015
Pros: being with great coworkers and paitents
Cons: in my case because i am per diem is not having insurance available to me
I have learned how to register patients, work insurance, medical data entry and obtaining co-pays. The management at Hartford Hospital are wonderful. They are willing to go the extra mile to help in anyway that they can. They push for you to succeed. I couldn't of learned everything that I did without my coworkers. They where always willing to help in anyway they can. I think the hardest part of the job is just getting the hang of insurance because there is so many different types to know. The most enjoyable part of the job is being with patients and helping make the experience as comfortable as possible.
