Dealing with sick patient
Unit Secretary/Office Assistant (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALOctober 5, 2012
Pros: there is always up to date training, helping people
Cons: lunch breaks being cut into, upset families, normally no breaks
A typical day was taking orders not only from my nurse manager, but also the doctors. I maintained patient charts, entered orders, answered phones, and customer service.

I learned how a hospital ran on a day to day bases. I learned to be very compassionate with families and patients. I learned how to handle stressful situations.

I loved my coworkers, – more... there may have been a few that was difficult to work with, but we mostly worked as a team.

I enjoyed helping families and patients as I could to make being in the hospital as comfortable as I could.

The hardest part was seeing patients come on the floor and knowing that the point of them being there was just to keep them comfortable. It was hard seeing the family members when their loved ones became very ill or passed away. – less

Typical day starts at 6:30am and ends 7:30pm caring for critically ill patients in the regions Level One trauma ICU.

Customer Service/Cashier (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALSeptember 14, 2012
Pros: nutrition department employees received free meals, and could swap with other employees days on your schedule should a conflict arise.
Cons: the cost of insurance for part time employees, the inconsistency of work hours.
Huntsville Hospital has given me great opportunity to be involved in high volume of customer service. I enjoy the department employees I work with to include the supervisors and director. Working in the nutrition department of HH we see thousands of customers daily and can become stressful, however I maintain a smile and put customers first from the – more... first hour to the last hour of my work. I work with a high volume of cash which has to be accounted for and verified at the beginning and end of my shift. – less

I worked at Huntsville Hospital for a while. The hospital and their services as a whole are phenomenal. It's comparison is to none and they take pride in knowing that.

Benefits were awesome and ability to advance was – more... great considering they also paid for your education, should you proceed beyond your current degree/certification. They hold their people and their services to a bar that if not met, you will be booted. They strive for success. Sometimes it doesn't matter the cost. – less
