This was my clinical working as a Pharmacy Technician. I would fill medication, deliver to nurses stations, compound medications. This was a very interesting work to be done. I would like to continue working in a hospital setting.
You don't get advanced based on your abilities. There is a lot of gossip and favoritism. Management listens to rumors and does not go by the facts. Constantly understaffed and management team does a lot of things shady that are swept under the rug. My co workers were awesome for the most part. The hardest part of my job was watching the Rehab Director get paid for doing nothing. The most enjoyable part was when I got offered a position and was able to leave. I had been being paid significantly lower than other RNs not only at that facility but for an RN in general.
I was a student doing my externship for medical laboratory technician.
Externship (Former Employee) – Livingston, TN – July 14, 2013
I learned every aspect of working in a laboratory> including quality control, laboratory information systems, processing and receiving specimens, and did phlebotomy on the floor. It was a 6 month externship and i couldn't have had a better experience with better people.
Worked prn as a RN.... Patient load 8-12 patients, total care. . Unsafe!! Poor communication, organization, unfriendly coworkers... Bad, bad situation! Not a pleasurable experience! Poor patient care...
