Health Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – June 23, 2015
I entered orders, did patient care, vital signs, and whatever was asked of me. The hardest part of the job was seeing patients who needed much more than we could provide. The best part of the job was actually making a difference with the patients' that I helped. It felt more like a family, like I was meant to do this job!
Clocked at 0700. As shift lead I made assignments. I "floated" to assist my Nurses with highest acuity patients. I made sure everyone got lunch-or food bought in. I intercepted doctor/Nurse issues if necessary. I stocked. I set up operating room cases. I sterilized equipment. I arranged rare blood delivery. I instructed the nursing students in clinic

HEALTH UNIT ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Huntsville Alabama – June 14, 2015
Health Unit Assistant duties are to monitor patients vital signs, provide care and give information to the nurses. Maintain clean rooms for patient's. Also work as Unit Secretary maintaining patient files for the nurses and physicians. Ordering meds and procedures for patients per request of the physician. I learned procedures and terminology in out patient surgery. Most co-workers were very good to work with, while some were difficult and did not give very good direction and were not professional. The hardest part of the job was learning all the procedures for ordering prescriptions and procedures at the same time having to perform patient care. I really enjoyed learning the challenge of learning the procedures of ordering procedures and medications, I just wish I could have had a little more concentration on that part of the job rather than having to provide patient care at the same time.
Very friendly co workers made it a very enjoyable place to work
Some supervisors were unprofessional and didn't provide adequate instruction.
Typical Day: Demanding, busy, fun, and enjoyable. What I learned: Everything I could. Management: Showed a great consideration for their employees. My Co-workers: Great people to work with. Hardest part of the job: Finding advancement opportunities. Most enjoyable part of the job: The satisfaction of providing quality healthcare and service.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – June 12, 2015
This hospital is somewhat behind in providing quality evidence based care. It is very outdated when compared to other facilities its size. The work environment is tense. Management is not concerned about employee satisfaction.
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – May 30, 2015
Staff on most Units are very caring and will go the extra mile for patients and co-workers. I worked all shifts, including weekends, on several different floors. Rarely did I come across a staff member who did not give their best. Typical 12 hour shift, lots of charting, must be a team player.

Phlebotimist (Current Employee) – Huntsville Main – April 15, 2015
A typical day at work consisted of around 35-40 patients a day with a very friendly work environment. The hardest part of the job is watching the patients go through the process of their personal medical situations. Yet, the most enjoyable part of the job is helping those patients get better in their personal medical situations!
Sometimes breaks and lunches have to be sacrificed due to work load.

Phlebotomy (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – March 2, 2015
A typical night at Huntsville Hospital means being expected to stick at least fifty patients between 12am to 6:30am. The hardest part of my work is the amount of patients we stick every night but I do enjoy my job and know that I have learned so much from being a part of the team here at Huntsville Hospital. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be my patients. Knowing that I get to be a part of their healing process is truly rewarding.
