The position was 100% review of all trauma charts for the American Collage of Surgeons patient care filters. I worked very closely with the surgeons in their Quality Management meeting. I was responsible for all periodic reports and presentations. The department personnel are all very dedicated to their work. All aspects of the job were enjoyable.

You certainly are not looked at for your body of knowledge, it is solely based on who you know. People that have no business being advanced are and those who work hard are not rewarded. They use coercion and intimidation to keep people in line.
No review to give. I am no longer there.High patient flow, rarely well staffed. Often management would not help when needed, or when we were short staffed. co-workers were positive and friendly. Hardest part was company didn't make employees feel valued. Only two raises given in seven years of work. Pay was actually cut back as well. Most enjoyable – more... part was working with great people.Great Picnics and Christmas parties though. – less
PICC RN (Current Employee), Melbourne ,fl – February 19, 2014
Always looking for an opportunity to teach . I am committed to my co workers and think of them as a family. I enjoy what I do everyday with patients especially with difficult peripheral access and access with babies and children.
Pros: supportive working relationship with other staff.
Cons: feeling of giving less than great care when really busy.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the care of a laboring mother and delivery of her baby. Care and support of grieving family after loss of their expected little one is the hardest part of my job. I work with a great crew of nurses, techs and unit coordinators .
Nice place to work because I got to work around a lot of people.

At Holmes Regional the atmosphere made you feel as if you worked among family. I caught on quickly because everyone welcomed me with open arms and helped train me. Filling pyxis machines, filling prescriptions, speaking with nurses, delivering medications in all parts of the hospital, and utilizing the pneumatic tube system were daily activities. I – more... really enjoyed that everyday there was a new task that needed to be conquered. – less
Being a nutritional services tech has its many great values and opportunities. My favorite is making sure my patients are happy and comfortable with what they are consuming. Seeing my patients happy while they are laying in a hospital bed makes me smile. The day may get stressful and hectic but when your working in healthcare, it is to be expected.
