ICU RN (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – April 15, 2016
Staffing worked very well together to meet the needs of the client, even under severe duress or lack of resources and supplies. New buyers have ruined its reputation of poor service even worse. Citizens of Hemet are commuting outside the area in droves for better health care.
Good teamwork by the staff.
Upper management extremely poor, new buyers even worse. Very low morale seen in staff.
PBX Switchboard Lead Operator (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – March 3, 2013
I really loved the people and the flexibility I had with this job. I learned to manage and train my staff on the evening crew . We all helped and encouraged each other and made sure to cover each other so are children and families didn't suffer. This department needed coverage and staffed 24/7 including holidays, weekends, and long nights and long mornings. It really was a great group of people and I really do miss working there. I had Triplets in 1996 and adopted a sibling set of five foster children and needed to be home to raise these little ones, 12 years later I find myself amazed at how much I miss this line of work and I find myself needing to return.
good health insurance, salary comparable, benefits excellent.
not many ways to advance without taking another career choice.
I have been at Hemet Hospital since 1995, the group of doctors and co-workers are my second family. I need to take a step out of that comfort zone.
Case Manager - Case management (Current Employee) – Hemet, CA – June 7, 2013
I have been living in Hemet since 1989, has worked at Hemet Hospital since 1995. It is a local hospital where I feel comfortable and complacent working, never really take the next step to explore somewhere else. I have fallen in love with case management, finding it challenging and complex, never knowing what issues I am facing each day. I would like to continue this line of work in an adjacent hospital to see how is the environment in a different setting and their operation system works. Hemet hospital has been a second home. Saying good-bye to it will not be easy. But after having been there since 1995, I need to call for a change.
OR Materials Coordinator (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – April 9, 2015
I loved my hours at the hospital. I loved my job, what I did day to day. There are no long term benefits for employees. I worked at the hospital for over 6 years. Hardly ever received a raise and if I did it was only 6 cents. I worked very hard for the company and never felt appreciated.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Hemet, Ca – September 15, 2015
Prepares and delivers food trays to hospital patients, performing any combination of following duties on tray line while serves trays to patients, collects and stacks dirty dishes on cart and returns cart to kitchen. Wash dishes and cleans work area, tables, cabinets, and ovens and may record amount and types of special food items served to patients.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – October 9, 2014
While I was working at the hospital, most of my coworkers were constantly trying to get me in trouble and told my boss lies about me to try to get in trouble. I had a sick mother in law and a father in law who was out of town a lot so i could not show up to work for some of my work days. My boss was not understanding and never talked to me about some issues that my coworkers were having with me. I was not informed on how many days we were allowed to call off until it was too late and for some important matters i was not given a warning , I was given the next punishment for it. Their management and their ways of handling things and taking care of patients and their families are very poor.
productive workplace with respect and profetional team work.
Unit Secretary DOU (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – April 8, 2015
I arive to work put the rooms in order for the nurses on the board. Put all Doctor orders into the computer charts. make sure the nursed had all the proper supplies for there patients, I learned that under no circumstances i was not to give any information about each patient to anyone over the phone. The hardest part of the job was when a patient passed away, but i realized it was apart of life. The most enjoyable part was the fact that I made my own schedule and that i was buisy from the time i got their to the time i got off.
I thouroughly enjoyed my job when i was with HVMC.
Unit Secretary of Tele/Ortho/Med Surg Floor (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – August 9, 2012
I loved my job at HVMC. I learned so much in the 9 years I worked there. When I was hired on as the Unit Secretary I reorganized the documents on the floor that had been there in the 70's on. I loved the nurses i worked with and created a family bond with them. I worked the hardest/busiest floor at HVMC and most new secretary staff didnt stay on long after working our floor. We mostly recieved geriatric patients on our floor. I miss talking to the patient's and learning thier stories or taking care of them when they transition to a better place. I went out of my scope of practice to help the patient's and nurses. Sometimes i would sit with the patient if they had no family so they werent so lonely. I miss my job and now I am trying to start a new career but within the medical field. Thank You.
learning from the nurses, was very thorough with new orders and keeping the charts up to par.
went from working 12 hour shifts to 8 hour shifts.
ER STAFF NURSE (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – August 30, 2013
A typical work day was an assignment of 4. I learned the pro's and con's of a "Physician Owned" Hospital. MY CO-WORKERS WERE GREAT!!!!! Over half of the night shift were travel nurses. I worked night shift here, and I must say, we had fun together. Since I was a night shift nurse on a travel assignment, I really didn't meet the management. Hardest part of the job = traveling the 91 freeway, in all the traffic. It took over 2 hours each way to get here - requiring a hotel stay at least 2 nights a week.
Very professional work environment, and wonderful staff.
Patient Sitter (Current Employee) – Hemet, CA – April 2, 2014
A typical day at work doesnt exist at a hospital. I usually work in the emergency room with 51/50. I've learned how to deal with different type of people while being in the ER. As any other work place you have co workers who all have different strategies. Working with each one is a lesson its self that I enjoy. Dealing with very combative patients that are unaware of there well being, would probably be the hardest part of my job physically, but very much rewarding when we are able to help them with getting better. Seeing someone that is sick, emotionally or physically and being able to be apart of there recovery would have to be the best part of my job.
I enjoyed working with my co-workers. The doctors I transcribed for were amazing.
Medical Transcriptionist III (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – January 31, 2014
I was taught to transcribe a great number of report types when I was employed by this hospital. The doctors were great to transcribe for. I had some transcription experience when I began working for this hospital but they increased my knowledge base significantly during the course of my time of employment with them.
great co-workers, great doctors to work for, great food in the cafeterial.
worked in the er most of the time, had very few breaks and short lunches, almost everything i transcribed was a stat report. it was a very busy emergency room.
Positive work environment. Health Care team worked together to provide quality care.
STUDENT NURSE PRECEPTORSHIP (Former Employee) – Hemet, California – March 20, 2013
I enjoyed my preceptorship program at the Hemet Valley Medical Center. My hours spent here were very eventful. I gained plenty of knowledge through working alongside my preceptor and by asking questions to those experienced nurses I was worked with. The working environment here at Hemet was very positive, all nurses seemed friendly and had a good attitude about coming to work.
Emergency Staff and Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Hemet, CA – May 4, 2013
Hemet Hospital needs a lot of help. It has recently undergone ownership changes, and with that there have been too many changes and not enough leadership through all of the changes. Many employees feel unsupported in all the chaos and are leaving. Patients are also feeling the change with short staffing and long waits.
