Pros: great staff

A typical day at Lenoir Memorial consist of answering the phone, greeting families, checking in with charge nurse to see of anything the unit may need.

The most enjoyable part of my job is helping the families, whether it be making coffee, offering them a drink, contacting other family members or just an ear to listen.

A typical day at work begins with, preparing machines, and traveling with oncology doctors to satallite offices. My co-workers and I work strongly together as a team.

A typical day would be hard working, getting to each and every room with in a timely manner, make sure each and every patient's needs were meet and make sure that each and every nurse had what they needed from the nursing assistant when each and every time that asked. Maintain all data entry information so that the nurses could be able to inform the – more... Dr.s of their patient infirmities and to keep your area as clean as possible.

Depending on what day it is the day can go from smooth to chaotic in zero to 60 sec....lol! Enjoyed establishing relationships with the staff and upper management as well as the Volunteers.

Pros: excellent benefits, safe enviroment, and dedication to patients
Cons: sometimes short staffed
My 8 yrs working at this hospital has made a deep impression on my life. I have learned the value of caring, sharing, and putting others lives in front of my own. My co-workers are deffinately my family away from home. They are a wonderful group of people to be around daily. From the doctors I see from day to day to the enviromental service workers. – more... I must say that the hardest part of my job is loosing a patient that has spent countless years, months, weeks, and days with us receiving chemotherapy treatments. No matter how proffessional a person is if you have a heart for people loosing a patient will never be easy. As time goes on you learn to put your feelings aside and learn to pray inwardly for the grieving family. – less
Productive workplace with constant interaction with patient and families
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Kinston, NC – May 21, 2012
Pros: holidays off, make good money, small patient load
Cons: long hours at times, have to take call, never know what time you're getting off
This is a very challenging job which requires moderate critical thinking. This is a confined environment so there are numerous personalities to deal with but it can also be a great way to make friends. The best part of the day is when we all pull together to provide safe and efficient care to every patient and then the day comes to an end. The hardest – more... part of this job is becoming familiar with all the different tasks associated with the operating room. It is very different from working on the floor, but I have mastered them both! – less
I love my job and enjoy doing it Lenoir Memorial Hospital, I'm just looking for something closer to home.
POC Technncian/Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Kinston, NC – May 8, 2012
Pros: helping people.
Cons: when its busy sometime short breaks or no break.
A typical day for me starts around 11 in the morning. I run controls in the POC Room. Run unreceive report to see what lab work is outstanding. When all lab work (blood draws, running test on Influenza, Strep Throat, RSV and urines specimens) are done I restock all lab supplies in nurses carts, trauma rooms, express care and triage. Train new employees – more... POC procedures any time during the day when it's convient for both of us. Inform nurses and health care partners of outstanding urine specimens that need to be collected and if time permits I collect them myself. The hardest part of my job is drawing blood from a person that is extremely dehydrated. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting so many different people and helping them. I meet people unfortunately when they are not feeling good and a lot of times they are not in the best of moods. I try to make them feel better by making them laugh because I believe laughter is the best medicine. – less
