Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Woonsocket, RI – July 18, 2014
A typical day at Landmark is giving aerosol treatments to patients, responding to emergencies in the ER: CPR, ventilator support, ABG analysis, etc. I have learned to work in a fast paced hospital to work together with my coworkers, doctors and nurses to give the appropriate care for each patient. Working with management at Landmark is good because we share our ideas and we try to work as a team so we can get the best care for our patients. Our department director always says to put the patient first. Do what is best for the patient. The hardest part of the job is when you see families come in and you're trying to help their loved ones and they pass away. The most enjoyable part of the job is when see people getting better every day and then they get to go home.

trying to administer rx's to pts when you have 4 calls at once, and hoping the nurse is giving you a correct assessment of pts condition
unable to service pts as quickly as you would like due to staffing/ and how busy a night it is.
Maintenance/Shift Lead/janatorial work (Current Employee) – Woonsocket, RI – May 20, 2013
this company is a good place for people in the medical field. it isnt the best for a full time student, cause they are harsh to work around school schedule. management in the enviornmental services department is unorganized and dont present professional attitude. there work expected to be done in 6 hours is to much.
overtime when needed
management not organized, to much he said she said, work is overdefined
Productive despite all financial trouble in the organization.
Medical Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Woonsocket, RI – November 30, 2012
I did enjoy working, been behind the direct care of patient. It was my duty to make sure that all medical care was done appropriate almost in all levels. I was working with managers and chief of departments regarding patient's care, appropriate documentation and coding through chart review, including: Mortality, Readmissions, Complications and Unexpected outcomes. I also did learn governmental regulation in order to meet accreditation requirements.I love my co-workers and I did appreciate team-work. I did like flexibility and their understanding of the value of family. The hardest part of the job: to have always high standard regarding patient satisfaction, due to financial struggle.
Productive work place working with dedicated employees

During a college course entitled "Internships in Clinical Psychology," I was given the opportunity to intern in a psychiatric hospital in a neighboring town. This hospital dealt primarily with individuals struggling with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and psychotic episodes.
