Host (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – August 1, 2014
Pros: making patients happy
Cons: poor management
it started off really great place to work but when new management was brought in that screwed everything up. we now had to distrub patients that didn't get food because nobody knew who was getting what and nobody was made accountable for anything.
Take care of someone like it is your family member and you can never go wrong.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – June 28, 2014
In every job I have had I enjoyed. There are always situations and people that no matter what you do you cannot make it better or satisfy that person but you just do what you can to the best of your ability and having the peace of mind that I did my best is all that matters. In all my jobs, the person was either happy or relieved to see me or unhappy – more... to see me but I know that I took part in helping the recovery of the patient or kept them from getting worse before they got to the hospital. I enjoyed most of my co-workers in all of my jobs and when a co-worker says I am so glad you are here tonight or I am so glad you are the one that is drawing my blood then it makes my job worth doing and gives me a sense of satisfaction. – less

Pros: close to home
Cons: the uncertainty of the future of our hospital
As changes in healthcare progress, the need to be flexible is ongoing. It is busy. Our Supervisor is the greatest and very supportive. The hardest part of the job is getting to spend the time you'd like with each patient.

Hostess (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – May 12, 2014
Pros: i enjoy working, meeting new people
Cons: job was to physically to hard, to pull cart thru thru 3 building
I enjoy working in new jobs, were I can learn new things. I took food orders from patients, I called them , and I got their trays, and took they food to them then I returned and turn trays to.cart when they were thru. I later returned and took lunch orders, and called them in and returned with there orders. I then gave them their lunch trays, and waited – more... to retreive their lunch trays. During that time I went thru three different building owned by the hospital. The trays, Did not come up in order so I would dray the 60lb cart downstairs on the elevator to get 5 or 6 trays. then I would go to varies parts of the hospitals not always to the same building, to deliver 1 or 2 trays. They would call me down stairs to get trays 1 or 4, so if I had not finish I still had to go to get 2 trays, again dragging my 60lb cart. Then return upstairs to restart giving out trays again. This went on all day. Going thru out three different buildings dragging my 60lb cart. – less

Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OH – February 18, 2014
Pros: working with the patients one on one
Cons: no breaks
A typical day at the hospital was arriving and getting report from the previous shift nurse. After receiving report I went over my care plans and came up with a care plan for each individual patient. Visiting and assessing patients came next along with passing meds and general needs. The hardest part of the job was being on my feet for a total of 12 – more... to 14 hours sometimes not getting a break or lunch. The Most enjoyable part of the job was watching the patients go from sick to healthy and realizing had a major role in that. – less
