Medical Technologist (Former Employee), Secaucus, NJ – December 7, 2013
Filled with supervisors who do not know their left from their right, who make decisions that look out of this world. Sometimes, I think the hospital is not doing well because of the people managing it. A typical day at work is madness. Many times, no one was scheduled to take over from me and I would end up doing a double shift only to be paid for just – more... one shift.
I always wondered about the quality of the whole work there. – less
Associate (Former Employee), Secaucus, NJ – January 19, 2013
Working in MHMC you learn that there is no team work at all. You don't only have one boss everyone is your boss and the communication from the management to staff is HORRIBLE. People get promotion just because who they know someone from the pent house instead of what they know.
Registration of patient's in the Emergency Room and Admitting. Data Entry and verification of patient's demographic,employment and insurance information. Verification of insurance and co-payments for all patient types. Make appointments for patient's requiring follow-up specialist visits. I learned how to utilize many systems including STAR, Gaffey, – more... ICD-9 coding to ensure accuracy for billing and data entry. I worked independently, however we had 1 supervisor in case we needed assistance. I worked with a small group, we all had designated areas. The hardest part of the job was being understaffed making it difficult to have work/life balance. The most enjoyable part of the job was the knowledge I gained being new in the medical field. – less
Registrar (Former Employee), Secaucus New Jersey – November 11, 2012
Pros: free lunch
Meadowlands Hospital is very unstable. I have worked for better hospitals in the past they under pay. They give free lunch it saves you a little money each week. When they lay you off be excepted to be handed a letter with about four sentences due to economic reason we have to reduce our workforce. Why would make a statement then turn around in have – more... orientation a couple days before you do a layoff. I think they know in advance weather they can afford to pay workers the correct salary range. – less

Prepared films for patients who called ahead of time to request. Discharged patients,Transfered patients upon nurses request. Closed each patients account who did not show for there appointment, Collected proper Co-pays. Kept a very professional demenor at all times. Patient Satisfaction cames first. My co-workers were the most wonderful people around. They were very helpful,sincere and dedicated people. The most hardest part of my job was not loving what I do. The most enjoyable part of my job was making the patients feels comfortable and giving them the satisfaction of throwing a sincere smile on there face. I have learned that no matter what your job title is in a hospital setting you must love what you do in order to truly help someone. I also learned that not everyday will be perfect, there will be some days where you will have challenges and you will deal with certain people who will not be as friendly as the last but one thing I always kept in mind was to always try my best and never give up on any patient. Alway remain professional and sincere. My managment team was not as stable as it should have been. I was blessed to have the higher authority who were wonderful and strong woman. – less
Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee), Secaucus, NJ – April 3, 2012
Pros: free lunch, works with schedule
Cons: healthcare benefits, overworked and underpaid.
This place is pretty much a dead end. There are promises of alot of advancement opportunities and growth but no action is ever taken. This is a very biased establishment and an unomfortable place to work at times.
