Patient Access Associate
Patient Access Associate in Emergency Room (Former Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: tuition remission benefits
Cons: poor management
The most difficult part of this position stemmed from poor management and staff shortages and high employee turnovers. The employee accountability was unequal, staff input was not taken into account or valued.

There was a high turnover in co-workers, but also in in management.

It was not, however, a position without rewards. As a trauma 1 hospital, – more... I learned more than I could have imagined in terms of medical treatment, terminology and diagnosis, triage procedures, as well as managing family and/or patients who were in "crisis" mode.

The professional exposure to various agencies members also allowed me to, once again, interconnections of emergency staff agencies - EMS, Police, MD's etc.

This was a great platform and introduction into hospital culture. – less

Professional environment where I have obtained new skills daily.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Washington, DCJuly 30, 2014
A typical day at the office starts at 8:30 am, where the patients come in get registered, have their vital signs taken, state reason for visit, get set up in exam rooms for procedures that will be performed by the physician that day. Once the patient is finished with physician the are directed back to the front desk where they schedule their next appointment – more... and sign out. After patient leaves exam room, I go in and sterilize the exam tables and countertops, disposing the used linen inside the laundry basket to get washed and I then prepare room for the next patient. The most enjoyable part of the job is making sure that all patients have been assisted and that all their better health needs have been met. – less

Receptionist (Former Employee), Washington, D.C.January 31, 2014
Typically, I answered phones and made myself available to complete whatever tasks my boss gave me to do. I learned how to be assertive and furthered my knowledge in how to best communicate with others. My co-workers were friendly yet focused on their specific tasks. The hardest part of the job was being firm but I learned firmness is a necessary skill – more... to have. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to speak to some of the doctors in Howard Hospital; they were positive examples. – less

Excellent learning experience, after working here as an RN you can work anywhere.
Clinical Nurse II (Former Employee), Washington, DCNovember 20, 2013
There were no typical days at Howard University Hospital. Every day brought new experiences, different cases and plans of care. Being a teaching hospital, nurses were responsible for working closely with new doctors teaching them and learning from senior doctors as well. The management changed often and lacked the necessary insight that direct patient – more... care personnel possessed for improvement in patient care and staffing. Most of my co-workers are amazing hardworking individuals. Though we all possess our own beliefs and style of patient care, the patient came first for most. Unfortunately every work place seems to have the few employees that lack team work and dedication which served as a challenge and area for leadership an ultimately growth for those who did. The hardest part of the job was assuring patient diagnosis' and treatment in a timely manner. Poor communication between departments and unnecessary delays due to human error and lack of accountability played a huge role in this unfortunate situation. This did encourage nurses to team up and help one another get their patients to and from the necessary areas for diagnostics and assure patient care for the rest of their patients on the unit. Unfortunately nurses were extremely over worked and did not have the time necessary to accomplish as much as hoped nor take a minute for themselves. The most enjoyable part of the job was the appreciation, growth and improvements of our patients. Nothing could make the challenges of this job worth it more than the positive affect we had on the lives of our patients and their families. – less
