I can't even begin to explain everything wrong with working here. That is why after a few months I started looking for a new job. The management is awful. They do not have a backbone of any kind. Since this is a physician owned hospital they don't exactly follow the rules. They force patient access to register patients without physician orders which is illegal. The patient access manager I had was awful. She could never be found when you needed her and she rarely answered her phone after hours.
I was told I was being hired to do one job and after training I would move to that position. That never happened.
I would never work here. It is an awful job.
There are none
Everything from illegal activity to horrible management
Methodist Hospital for Surgery is a relatively small facility. The types of surgeries are usually for Orthopedic and or Pain management issues. This facility has its own Physical Therapy, Radiology and laboratory departments. . , During my time there , i was given the opportunity to work with some really great people. People who really cared for the patients/families and restored by interest in furthering my career in the medical field.. I recommend this for anyone who wishes to advance in their medical career.
Friendly work environment
Too much downtime/ not many daily assignments/activities
RN (Former Employee) – Addison, TX – September 21, 2014
Taking care of the surgical patient from the beginning. Learned what perioperative services was all about. It was a new hospital when I started there and everyone throughout had a lot to learn. Unfortunately, our job expectations were always changing and it seemed to be overlooked that we were doing a great job considering poor staffing and disorganization. Manager would talk badly about one unit to another and like wise, that is unprofessional. The food was great.
IT Manager (Current Employee) – Addison, TX – July 23, 2014
On a typical day I provide network hardware and software support to end users. Setup new staff in Active Directory and reset password. Correct issue with ShoreTel phone system VOIP. Reconfigure desktop and laptop from Windows XP to Windows 7. Work with management team on current and up coming projects.
A typical day at work consisted of Radiology schedule, medication clearance and preparing patients for MRI'S, CTS AND MYELOGRAMS. I spent a lot of time with referring physicians and doing common administrative responsibilities including performing assessments, scheduling diagnostic procedures, obtaining preauthorization’s, reviewing medical records, and overseeing patient education. Among patient care and patient health, I also ran our weekly reports for all Hospital Diagnostic testing and sent out to our off site billing department. Throughout the day, I would register all diagnostic patients and screen all patients prior to appointments, whether it is over the phone of in person. Get patients ready for blood work (in accordance to myleogram protocol.) I was the liaison for all patients and all referring physicians in our hospital for the Radiology department. I was the face of Radiology department for Methodist Hospital. As a Radiology Aide, I learned how to evaluate post and pre-procedure, assist with invasive procedures, and performing non-invasive fluoroscopy and similar procedures under the radiologist’s supervision. In addition to these tasks, I also evaluated diagnostic image quality, make image observations, and forward reports to supervisor and referring physicians. My Radiology Manager was one of the most respectable managers I have had the opportunity to work with. He had enough confidence in me to manage my own schedule and my work. As a manager, he influenced me to utilize my skills and made my job as fulfilling as possible. At any point, if I needed him, he wasmore... always there to guide me and educated me on how to handle each situation in the future. He helped me tap into my nurturing side that much more and how to convey myself across the board among my coworkers, patients and doctors. The hardest part of the job was working with the technicians. As part of my job duty, I was in charge of coming up with procedures and protocols on how to ensure patient health and patient care was always top priority. It was a battle to get them to follow instructions implemented by me. Seeing that I was new, it was always a constant battle explaining why and how this would help with patient care. I constantly felt like they were being lazy and in the end, it always came back on me to fix complaints/issues they had but would never help in rectifying them. The most enjoyable part of my job was working side by side with the registration department. As part of my job descriptions, it was my job to register all Radiology patients prior to their appointments. At this point, I would clear all medications, surgeries and HNPS. In doing so, I was able to meet a great group of coworkers & patients. The basic human interaction that I was allowed with these amazing people helped me be that much more nurturing and understanding. I met a diverse group of people that brought so much joy to my days and months. It was a rarity that I had come across a patient that had a negative effect on my day. The staff that I was paired with exceeded all my expectations in a work place. Everyone from the billing department, the ER department and registration made the simple jokes, stories, and positive attitudes towards me.....a heartfelt memory.less
