Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – January 3, 2016
A typical day at work would conclude of taking care of patients, lifting patients, helping those in need. I learned to be kind to be people, and care for them. In my management i had to be well organized also meaning respectful. I had a lot of respect for my job, and for all my workers. Some co-workers of my co-workers were helpful to me, i get along with everyone. The hardest part of the job is turning a large patient over in bed when they can not get up, or bringing one to they bathroom when they cant move. Another hard part is to see someone sad when they are ill and i would comfort them to the best i could that broke my heart. I was enjoyable when the patients were feeling better and they are going home, and i was happy that i could comfort them to a good and safe stay!
I enjoyed making people happy.
When a patient couldn't go home cause they were ill, it was very sad.

APPE Pharmacy Intern (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – May 26, 2015
I never been more impressed than I was by the level of absolutely superb intelligence that was demonstrated before me at daily running rounds. It was literally like an episode of House - except that I had to be a part of it. I was quite overwhelmed the majority of the time, and this is how I realized ICU pharmacy is something one must definitely acquire a taste for; however, it is very much the same sorts of illnesses you will find yourself having to treat on a daily basis. The hours are obviously very long and demanding, and I direct this at those seeking to narrow their scope of practice towards acute care.
great cafeteria food, brilliant physicians and pharmacists, independent course structure
demanding course load, long hours (some days), many projects & final formal presentation

Intern (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – June 10, 2013
A typical day could consist signing in. then going to an area or floor in the hospital and just basically helping out. If paperwork was needed to be filed then it will be done, if copies were needed to be made then they were made,etc.
I worked for Kent per diem for 5 years and the work load was unfair. The second shift supervisor in Respiratory accused me of something I was not guilty of. As a result I quit. I never heard from the manager of the Resp. Department.
Constant Chaos, no office manager, Terrible communication
Former Medical Assistant-Affinity Physicians Group (Former Employee) – Primary Medical Group of Warwick – December 12, 2012
I was hired as a Per Diem Medical Assistant. On my first day there was no orientation of office work flow. Came to work every day for two months with no idea what duties I would have. Would spend 10 minutes with the other staff deciding who would do what for the day. The "Office Coordinator" has no managerial experience, and does not take charge of the office allowing the other staff to make decisions she should be making. The other staff has no resepect for her. There is alot of backstabbing and lying among staff. There are unqualified people in the office answering phones and giving medical advice to patients. The attending physicians are too worried about their contracts than about how the office runs. One physician left because she was fed up with the whole situation. The resident physician program is run like a dog and pony show. There is no communication between the people who run the resident programs and the "Office Coordinator". The person who is in charge of physician support for Affinity has no idea how a physicians practice is runned and is not supportive to the "Office Coordinator" or staff. If you want to work in an office where no one is in charge, the staff will backstab and lie, an office in constant chaos, the attending physicians can't be bothered to take control of how the office is being runned then this is the place for you.
good hospital benefits
poorly run office, no one in charge, constant chaos, no communication, lying and backstabbing staff
CNA (Former Employee) – warwick, R.I – September 19, 2012
Worked at this company for 5 years as a CNA. Signed a contract with them to work there after I graduated nursing school for 2 years. Was not hired after graduation, I was told that it costs too much to train new grads. I do understand that but I was a loyal employee for 5 years with no black marks on my record. Disappointed at their disregard for loyalty. Won't consider going back. Also I'm not the only one this has happened to.
