Patient Access Specialist (Current Employee) – Kenmore, NY – May 11, 2017
The hospital is often very busy and we see a lot patients on a daily basis. Often times its not enough coverage during busy times. Unfortunately because the ER is so busy and often hectic with the inflow of patients there is a high turnover rate.

RN (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY 14207 – March 3, 2017
I feel like hospitals focus too much on patient satisfaction scores which is not always going to portray the reality. Overall this hospital has treated me well, it can be a draining profession overall but the team members at this hospital are unparallelled.
Hospital outsourced entire transcription department to save money.
Medical Transcriptionist/Editor (Former Employee) – Kenmore, NY – February 20, 2017
Transcription/editing variable workload, could be asked to take paid leave. Learned voice recognition software and editing. Management did not support workers, problems left unaddressed. Increasingly toxic atmosphere. Sometimes stressful trying to keep up with productivity goals. Enjoyed typing and learning medical treatments and terminology.
Opportunity to learn in hospital atmosphere.
Job increasingly devalued, then eliminated and sent overseas to boost bottomline and throw quality away.

Monitor Tech/Unit Clerk (Current Employee) – Kenmore, NY – August 16, 2016
A focused and goal-oriented workplace that also includes a culture of caring and teamwork. Most coworkers are friendly and genuinely interested in your well-being. Everyone helps each other, as much as they can.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with the conflicting values held by the business and the clinical aspects of the workplace; i.e. money doesn't readily blend with morality.
During the evening and night shift, things are pretty relaxed, but during the day it can be quite busy with management, clinical staff, and patient movement.

Physical Therapy Department Internship (Former Employee) – Kenmore, NY – February 16, 2014
This position was an internship without wages. The people that trained me exposed me to working in a real office with real patients, real situations. One of my favorite things to do was to help the patients get registered. It was difficult for some people. I had to call insurance companies to verify what type of coverage, what was the deductible amount, how many visits allowed. I also called Workers Comp for verification. Made reminder calls. Took co-payments.
I was able to assist the physical therapists with phone inquires, and anything of a clerical nature.
Everyday I made reminder calls, answered incoming calls, scheduled appointment.
The Catholic Health Care system would be wonderful to work for. They have a very caring attitude
.It was a fantastic opportunity for on the job experience
job experience, working with patients, new computer programs

short breaks working weekends and holidays and work/life balance is not good.
