Registered Nurse in the operating room (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 25, 2017
It used to be a great place to work because the management valued their staff and paid them accordingly. Also management in the past was helpful to arrange schedules that helped the staff manage work and home responsibilities. Sad to say this is no longer the case

RESPIRATORY THERAPIST (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – September 16, 2017
Medical City of Fort Worth is a state of the art facility and continuing to expand as this is written! Our cardiologist and cath lab have set medical records and miracles with the advancement of technology. They are adding a brand new free standing ER which will bridge to the new cath lab and ICU's. It is also a teaching hospital.. so there are many opportunities to share knowledge and ideas with resident, interns etc. MCFTW has been the Texas Stroke Institute for maybe 3 years, need more beds! We have been awarded just about every certification a facility can receive with high standards, a Magnet facility as well. The Liver program and Kidney transplant programs are increasing monthly with new patients. Its a great place to specialize in one area if you choose, or enjoy the diversity of so many disciplines and specialized areas. There is an In-house Rehab on the 3rd floor, very successfully lead by a team of Rehab specialist.
awesome cafeteria, gift shop
a lot of codes.. blue, chill, team assist.... to respond to
Patients are good for the most part, but difficult to do work when we are always short on everything.
Floor/trash-dirty, overflowing. Takes several days for someone to come to our floor to clean, and when they do it's done at bare minimum. Call lights go unanswered for minutes at a time. Understaffed - most nurses have 6 patients, charge nurse typically has patients as well CNA have 16-20 or more patients by themselves, with high levels of acuity - need max assist. Struggle to have breaks/lunches because of the amount of staff or lack there of. Management is lacking in the managing department - bring up issues on unit and told there isn't really an issue.
Tech (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 28, 2017
Took linen carts filled with linen to all of the patient floors and procedure areas of the hospital and brought empty carts back to linen room to refill. After all floors were stocked we'd get new linen from the laundry and restock shelves in the linen room. Restocked the individual carts for the evening shift. The hardest part of the job was pulling the heavy carts to the floors. They were at least 6 ft. tall, 60 inches wide and 2 ft deep and the shelves were filled with sheets, blankets, towels, washcloths and gowns for the patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with people. People in the hallways, elevators, personnel on the floor and the employees all worked. Work culture was great. Management was fun and fair. It was hard work and pay wasn't good but it was a fun work environment.

Medical Receptionist/Scheduler (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 25, 2017
Overall I love to work with people in need, as far as the staff they are not so friendly but when you love to do something it doesn't matter who is being a certain way, you just kind of bypass it, especially being new to a facility, if you complain they would automatically think you are the problem. But interacting with the clients was my most exciting experience I had with in the company.
My typical day at work would be busy at certain times of the day. My day went by pretty fast with awesome co-workers and medical staff. My hardest day at work was when it was 9 o'clock in the evening when we took all calls for the hospital until 6 a.m. At times had to registrar while putting the patients in rooms and admitting patients into the hospital and taking payments and putting mom and babies in the computer for delivery.
Working with oncology patients is very rewarding. I love working with patients and their families. The unit is staffed with a group of team players that work well together. The manager is a young forward thinker who care about her employees. I just finished the bsn program and looking to advance my career and possible which to another area of care. Downfalls is working weekends and holidays, as well as rate of pay. It is unfortunate that nurse have to move from job to job to advance their rate of pay.
