High in demand for taking care of patients. Unstoppable and productive working pace. Very enjoyable. I loved interacting with people and having them laugh before they see the doctor. I was excited to come to work everyday.
As I kitchen supervisor I was responsible for all the aspects of the kitchen including food safety, knowledge of the food safety and prescribed diets, including textures and thickened liquids. I also was in charge of training, running shifts and maintenance of the entire kitchen.

The major problem they do not train new nurses well. Instead of having them on the floor to know what to do they have them all over the hospital and then rush to put them on their own. Plus the treatment from older nurses to NEW nurses are horrible. It is all politics in there.

As a student RN who had most of her clinicals and senior preceptorship that Lakeland Regional Medical Center (LRMC), I would highly recommend this hospital as a great place to work. All the units I experienced had positive healthcare staff that worked well together and there was a very supportive atmosphere for educational pursuits.
RN (Current Employee) – Lakeland, FL – November 10, 2015
Have met a GREAT group of co-workers but has single handed gone down the drain in the past couple of years over political policies. The nurse isn't important and replaceable. Showing a happy face and being non confrontational are held to a higher standard than being smart, hard working and honest. Maybe not how all the areas are but the changes are for the worse on the nurses behalf because our education means nothing as long as we can be certified waitresses that deliver medications with smiles on our faces.
working three days a week
working holidays, favoritism, opinion doesn't matter, leadership makes decisions without knowing or caring how the workers are impacted
IT. If you interview for an IT position, ask the people how long they have been working at LRMC.
IT Stafe (Current Employee) – LakeLand Florida – October 25, 2015
The IT management is costing this hospital tons of money. They pay placement firms around 1/3 of your salary to find qualified candidates and a large amount of those employees are not around in a couple of years. They go ahead and pay the fee again. Just look at the turnover in IT. Management just does not get it. As bad as the good ole boy network was. The good ole girl network is worse.
Certified Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Lakeland, FL – October 21, 2015
Most people were friendly on a daily basis, higher up management were rude and unapproachable. You were scheduled 12 hr shifts and only allowed one 30 minute break for lunch. Departments are understaffed putting extra strain on the workers already there.
short breaks, exposed to illness without my knowledge
Registered Nurse ER (Former Employee) – Lakeland, FL – September 14, 2015
I miss working at LRMC. Every hospital should operate as it does. They take care of their employees in every way, they have advanced technology, they care for their patients, and they help the community.
This is a fast-paced multi-tasking job that requires great attention to detail and being a team player. The medical staff office at Lakeland Regional is responsible for confirming all physician licensure and ability to perform their job. In addition, I am the CME (continuing medical education) coordinator and wear many other hats throughout the day. There is no typical day at work...each day is different. Management likes to tell you what you want to hear rather than the truth and if you don't have letters behind your name, you likely will remain at the bottom of the pile
