Oncology is loving and giving department to be a part of.
Patient Care Aide (Current Employee), Huntsville, AlOctober 23, 2012
My typical day at work starts at 6:45. I usually have 10-20 beds that I am responsible for. When I come in each room, I introduce myself write my name on the board and take their vital signs at 8, 12, and 4 pm. I ask the patient how was their day, how are they feeling and do they need anything. While I am asking these question I am assessing the environment – more... for safety and family dynamics. Later on I take blood sugars, attend to the needs of the patient, and assist the RN's.

I have learned many things on oncology. Critical thinking, end of life care, and always have a positive attitude.

Managing and prioritizing your time is very important it is the key to a successful shift.

My co-workers are wonderful. But if there us a problem, it should be discussed and if it can't be rectified, go through the chain of command. But you pick and choose your battles. Everyone has a bad day and you take people from day to day, and don't hold grudges. Each day is a new day.

The hardest part of my job is when staffing is low, but I do work well under stressful situations.

The most enjoyable part of my job is my patients, I love hearing the stories and interacting with my them. The stories they tell are enjoyable and I learn from each one. – less

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

Never a dull day working at Huntsville Hospital! You see just about everything!
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
