Do not pass go, do not collect $200,do not join or work at Havasu Regional
CLS (Former Employee) – Havasu City – January 27, 2016
Poor poor management. Poor HR. Lies Lies. Poor communication. Poor Health insurance. Never worked hospital that need not keep cafeteria open for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years. Worked 12 shifts in a role with no lunch or dinner break. Management did not care. Doctor ran hospital that was for profit, had no idea to run a good organization. Benefits with a third party several states away. If you need help with insurance, "did you call the 800 number." HR no help! Do not keep there promises.
RN (Former Employee) – Kingman, AZ – December 28, 2015
The care at this hospital is top notch. Unfortunately equipment shortages cause unsafe procedures in many rooms including lack of vitals machines, oxygen nozzles, etc. Rapid response team is top notch.
Employee culture was deplorable. I was a pool new grad RN and I felt that contingencies had been created to phase out grad RNs during non-peak season (summer, early fall) as several other pool grad RNs spoke of gossiping, backbiting, and other toxic behavior among staff RNs to pool RNs. Management neglected to correct this behavior. Disciplinary reports were given frequently without direct communication between accuser and accused and employee conflicts were resolved with disciplinary action against accused, no questions asked. I felt that rational discourse in conflicts was absent and that passive aggression was not discouraged. I eventually left due to to decreased hours during summer lag.
lunches debited from paycheck, no cash needed, pay bump for NOC shift
Administrator/Director, Home Health Services (Former Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – September 1, 2015
In my position as Administrator/Director of HHS at HRMC I learned it was paramount to educate the hospital administration on the differences between hospital and home health care, in order to receive their support.
My co-workers in the position were the absolute best part of the job.
The most difficult part of this job was justifying the hours my staff spent with patients.
I so much enjoy helping others and this position fulfilled that for me.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – July 31, 2015
The job in itself is grate especially if you came from a background of only doing retail there is tons of fascinating things to learn! The pay was good and the benefits were ok, There was quite a bit of in fighting between departments and between individuals and the turnover was incredible. I had 4 different directors in four years of working there so that got to be stressful too. On the whole it was a good experience.
Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – May 3, 2015
Working here allowed me to fall in love with my coworkers as family. Working in such a high level environment with such high risks allows you a certain closeness with coworkers thats hard to find in other places.
Food Service Worker / cook (Current Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – July 30, 2014
I am always open to learning, always room for improvement in any job environment. Friendly, fair management in personal opinion. Co-workers are as close as family and friends. Everyone has an off day sometimes its best to cheer someone up then stir the pot. Doing multiple jobs always some days to be easier than others. I don't believe any job is more important than any other, each job has its difficulties. I enjoy working in general, over all I've been call a serious workaholic. I try to work as much as possible/ needed.
CPT1 Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – March 25, 2014
I was so excited to get a job at the hospital at first because it would give me my phlebotomy job and put me near my family but shortly after working at this hospital I realized things were very wrong.
I ended up resigning from this hospital after 2 months.
I found out a lot of bad things and I did report everything to management in writing before leaving.
Nursing Student (Former Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – February 27, 2014
A typical day included providing direct patient care to those hospitalized. I learned alot regarding nursing skills, diseases, and treatments. There was always an instructor to guide us when we had issues and needed help. My co-workers consisted of my fellow nursing students as well as hospital staff and everyone was so helpful. The hardest part of the job was being a new student and not always knowing what to do in a particular situation. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with patients and helping them recover.
learned alot as a student
there were areas where i was not sure how to proceed with care at times
RADIOLOGY CLERK (Current Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – August 23, 2013
Typical day at work is always busy. When we are not busy we keep our hospital looking clean. I have learned so much from people, patients and co-workers. different life styles, work habits but no matter what they are always willing to give a helping hand. The hardest part of working is having to handle difficult patients and family members but we work as a team and get through it together. I enjoy coming to work everyday and just keep on learning.
Billing/Collector (Current Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – January 9, 2014
Busy and fast paced. required to collect insurance payments timely, resolve issues and or rebill claims. I worked with a great team of people. I loved every thing about my job and all it's challenges. The reason I am seeking employment is due to a corporate decision to outsource all functions of the business office to a company located in Nashville, TN.
Medical Transcriptionist. (Former Employee) – Lake Havasu, AZ – April 5, 2013
I worked at Havasu Regional Medical Center for 22-years and very much enjoyed my employment at Havasu. However, the company decided to save money and outsource our medical transcription jobs and therefore all eight of the transcriptionist were laid off.
I had an excellent supervisor - lead transcriptionist - who was helpful and made working at Havasu Regional as great place to work.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Lake Havasu City, AZ – January 8, 2013
At times given 7:1 nurse, patient ratio. Put on days when not requested or asked about. Management had lack of communication with staff. Benefits were okay. Enjoyed helping increase a persons health status. Co-workers at times enjoyable. I've learned to be more independent.
