Registered Nurse - Labor and Delivery (Current Employee), Allentown, PA – May 20, 2014
I like working on the Labor and Delivery unit at Lehigh Valley Health Network. It is a great group of people who work together as a team. We learn something new everyday, and are always challenged at work.
Intern (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – May 4, 2014
Working for the Lehigh Valley Health Netowk was a great experience. It was the first time I worked in an area that was relevant to my career path. I designed workout routines for people based on their goals and medical history. I had the opportunity to shadow multiple areas in the health field including physical therapy and cardiac rehab. In the future – more... it is my dream to work for this hospital. – less
Patient Technical Partner (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – April 29, 2014
Pros: learning something new, working in a new facility, not having to lift patients
Cons: fast paced if your not use to it, commuting, patient satisfaction very big
Working for LVH was a great experience. I wasn't there very long due to life issues. Given that I was coming from a retail background and changing course it gave me the chance to see if I wanted to go ing the medical field. It can be a bit challenging at times if your not from a medical background bit they do try to work with you. It also helped that – more... I had a great group of people both training with me and helping me along the way. I feel that makes a huge impact to.
The hardest part I feel was the having to learn so much in a short amount of time. Again I had never done anything in medical so it took some getting use to and was frustrating but I had a lot of encouragement from my team. I did have a few individuals who I just didn't vibe right with. I guess that happens at all jobs. Overall a had a good experience. – less
Educational and productive student externship experience.
Student Externship (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – April 5, 2014
A typical day at this setting included determining which patients were a priority to see and determining what type of evaluation (swallowing, speech/language, cognitive) they needed. I was independent during these evaluations and treatments. I determined severity ratings of disorders, future goals, and appropriate/safe diets for the patients.
Physical Therapist Assistant (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – April 4, 2014
Pros: education always, variety of patients
Patient list per rotation each morning, and freedom to arrange your movement throughout rotation. I enjoyed the mix of therapy provided with changing rotations every 3-4 months, which also kept skills sharp. Great interdisciplinary communication. Lunchtime meeting daily to assess census, and re-assign therapists to other rotations of needed. Monthly – more... education in staff meetings.
Hardest part.. when patients passed away.
Best part: variety in rotations, community atmosphere in the hospital facilitating interdisciplinary approach, and great people to work with.
Exciting and fun environment with a laid back style of work
Grants Writing Intern (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – March 10, 2014
During my time at the Lehigh Valley Network, I conducted a good majority of researching tasks in order to find supportive info and data to compliment our grant proposals. I learned how to write, format, and distribute grants proposals and all the necessary components that go into researching and developing a grants proposal. The most enjoyable part – more... of my job while interning here was the fact that I was able to freely go about my work at whatever pace I decided. – less
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – March 2, 2014
I found this work place to not be enjoyable due to the lack of management skills, professionalism and no support from human resources when it comes to dealing with problems that need to be taking care of.
