Lenox Hill Lenox hospital is located in Midtown Manhattan, a typical day at work included but not limited to an individual being on their feet constantly. Ordering test STAT for doctors and the nurse on call. I have gained a well rounded experience with different cultures and I've also learned how to order more medical supplies for the OR, ER, and sometimes – more... ENT specialist. Working with my co-workers was the best part of working for the hospital, we always put in a helping hand with one person. We worked as a team and a family. In my personal opinion there wasn't a hard part to my job. I am a very determined person. I always arrived to work at least fifteen minutes prior to my starting shift and saw the work orders for the day, then developed a time management for myself for the day. What I enjoyed the most was working with the different cultures on a day to day basics. It opened my mind to a different aspect on living. – less

Security Guard (Former Employee), New York, NY – September 8, 2013
Cons: too many to write them all
Typical days are boring most of the time. I learned that security work is one of the most dull occupations ever.

Co workers were awesome but some of them would slack at work and we would all be penalized for it. Hardest part of the – more... job is trying to stay awake in post where your doing absolutely nothing. Most enjoyable part was when patients would act up and we would have to restrain them so the nurses can sedate them. – less

Working at Lenox Hill Hospital was an extremely productive, collegial and educational. It was a period during which I learned the finer points of credentialing, planning and organizing hospital board meetings and successfully interacting with both the hospital's corporate as well as medical staff members. In this I was very ably supported by my supervisors – more... who placed high value on professional knowledge and education. I found the staff at Lenox Hill Hospital equally supportive for the most part. My colleagues were in no way reluctant to share their knowledge and expertise and it was very easy to form good professional relationships here.
I would have to say the hardest part of working here at least initially was the lack of access to certain technologies which could have made the job easier. The most enjoyable part was my daily interactions with my team members who have become really good friends. I was very sad to have to leave this job. – less

Provided group classes to those patients preparing to leave the hospital after a cardiac related health problem. I prepared my own teaching materials and handouts for group classes and individual patients. The hardest part of the job was – more... knowing that charting on each patient takes a lot of time and it is necessary to do and it is required to see 12-14 patients a day and the time taken to chart after each visit to the patient took away time to be with the patient for nutrition education. I enjoyed teaching newly diagnosed diabetics who are receptive to learning and those looking to lose weight and receptive to behavioral changes. This allowed me to prepare teaching and learning materials and feel as though I am improving the lifestyle and longevity of the patients life as well as the quality of their life by educating them on how to approach food, portion sizes, make healthful choices to reduce weight, keep blood sugar within normal limits etc... – less
