TEEN SUMMER VOLUNTEER (Former Employee), Loma Linda, CA – February 9, 2014
My experience at LLUMC was a great experience for me, It taught me to be open and to communicate more clearly and it taught me how to be productive and how to be responsible and how to manage time, but also it taught me how to make it through a hard days work. There was no hardest part of the job and there was no easy, but the best part of being on – more... the job was meeting new people and learning what kind of environment I'm eventually going to be in. The co-workers were all so nice and friendly and didn't mind mentoring me or teaching me things I hadn't known before. – less
Patient Care Assistant/Medical Center 9200 (Former Employee), Loma Linda, CA – January 25, 2014
Pros: quiet on night shift
Cons: being the only cna per shift
As a CNA my job began with checking the nurses assignments and checking each patient on the unit, making sure everyone had dinner. Those who were permitted to dinner I would document their intake as well as document any output that was observed during my first rounds. I would then begin helping the nurses in whatever way I could, usually involved: turning, – more... changing, walking,and feeding patients. I began taking vital signs which took up most of my night. Usually half of the patients on the unit were vitals every 2 hours and the other half every 4 hours. In between vitals I would document and continue to help the RN's when needed. Towards the end of the shift I would finish all my documentation in regards to vital signs and input and outputs and any beds I changed. I worked with very enjoyable co-workers who helped me whenever I needed a hand and they made me feel very needed and wanted. The most enjoyable part of the job was just getting time to chat with and encourage patients and giving them above and beyond care when I could. The hardest part of the job was getting all the vital signs completed because I was usually doing every patient on the unit by myself. – less
Administrative Assistant , Volunteer (Former Employee), Loma Linda, CA – January 16, 2014

Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Loma Linda, CA – January 16, 2014
Pros: working for one of the few facilities that offer this level of care.
Cons: having to tell a facility or family member there are no beds available.
Very busy mental health/substance abuse hospital. Busy phones from other hospitals, law enforcement agencies etc. looking for beds/treatment for this population. I learned there is a tremendous need for facilities and more nurses who understand this area of nursing. Also, I know that love nursing and being with patients; I like to be where the action – more... is. Therefore, my preference is to continue to be on the front lines and leave management up to those who have a calling for this area of nursing. Nursing is not only building a rapport with patients but it is having good working relations with co-workers as they will be the ones to be supportive during a bad day. The hardest part of my job is turning away a person in need of our services because we don't have available beds or financially/insurance wise the patient needs to be referred elsewhere.The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing a patient return to a better life with good nursing care and treatment. I love being a witness in their journey – less

Unit Secretary/ Birth Clerk (Former Employee), Loma Linda, CA – November 11, 2013
Pros: several times a year the management would have lunches for us or just treat us to ice cream sundaes.
Cons: it took me some time to adjust to half hour lunch breaks.
Our day always started with all of the staff meeting and discussing any new or old business that needed to be addressed. The meeting ended with a prayer asking God to help us meet the needs of our patients that day. The management had a open door policy. You could always discuss anything you felt like you needed to. The nurses and doctors are very hard – more... working and dedicated people. I made many friends that I still see and communicate with. The hardest part of my job was sitting down with families when their babies passed at birth or shortly after and filling out the birth certificate paperwork with them. This should be a joyous time and for some it is heartbreaking. I truly enjoyed meeting the new parents as a secretary and birth clerk and helping them and listening to their wonderful stories. I loved meeting the grandparents and sharing in their joy. – less
