Patient Representative (Former Employee), Beacon, NY – August 27, 2013
Pros: i loved this job.
Cons: dealing with the passing away of patients.
The hours were from 8-6 and we were open from Monday-Saturday. There was five of us that sat at the front desk. We did check in/check out, answered phones, registered patients and helped coordinate patient care with the Dr's and their medical assistants. It was always busy so the day always went by pretty fast. I learned to have a lot of compassion – more... for our patients. We have primary care physicians, an ob/gyn department and an hiv program. The hardest part about the job was getting attached to patients that were sick and then have to deal with them passing away. Overall, Hudson River Healthcare was the best job I ever had. My manager was the best. She was very understanding and was patient with all of us during our training. – less
Team work was fabulous,it was a great experience and fulfilling.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Monticello, NY – April 23, 2013
Pros: had a lot of in service training, comradary beteen workers, like family.
Cons: i really can't think of any. i would have stayed there, but i had health problems that kept me from working for several months and so i retired from there.
Typical day was very busy,but the teamwork was great.Everybody was always willing to help out where they could. The hardest part of the job was when patients came to the clinic that were terminal,and you got to know them and their families and then they were gone. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing patients recooperate after a long hall. – more... Management was great, they were always on top of things. – less
