Medical Assistant Internship (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 6, 2017
I was their to gain my experience as a Medical Assistant. A typical day at Metropolitan Hospital is that it was always busy because of the different kind of situation that you are face with. The work place culture was mixed because of where the hospital is located and the different culture of patients you see every day. the hardest part of the day is when you have a lot of people waiting to be treated. It's nice when you know that you did your job.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 12, 2017
Metropolitan Hospital is a very crazy place but because of the staff we have, they pretty much keep everything in order. you have to be a fast learner but most of all have patience, management is okay could be better but they are reasonable at times. The hardest part of the job is dealing with people because some of them come in with bad attitude ready to stir something up.The best part of the job is being able to help others that's really in need and when they appreciate all the things you did to assist but most of all working what the employees as a team.
Associate Director of Nursing (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 26, 2017
This is a small community hospital in a big city. Close knit staff and loyal patients. sometimes slow to adopt change. Part of a larger health care system. Staff tend to stay a long time but salary is not as competitive as it could be.
Medical Technologist- Blood Bank (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 15, 2016
I learned a lot from the working for metropolitan hospital center. It has taught me time management, attention to detail, and how to work well with others. A typical day at work is that I would start off by checking the temperatures. I would then start up the machines and calibrate them. I would then run test on blood specimens so that the doctors can perform transfusions for their patients.
hours were hard. I had to do double shifts frequently.
Comprehensive, patient-centered health care facility with mission

a typical day i just organize the room making sure everything is clean for patients. Do the census and making sure the nurse give us the ok for patients who can go to the playroom
What i learn its not always fun and games in the playroom. yes i can at time have fun with the patients but i also have to be ready when it comes to safety and the well being of the patients
the people i work with are fun to work with i don't have any problems with them since i'm close to there age
The hardest part of the job would be when our room is filled with patients while there's only 2 of us keeping a watch but even so its a good challenge at times The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction i have with the patients.It's a playroom a place for the patients not to worry about tests and not feel like they are locked up in there room

Behavioral Health Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 21, 2015
I took care of patients with mental illnesses inside of an inpatient psychiatry unit. Through teamwork with Social Workers, Doctors, and Nurses we created a therapeutic environment to facilitate safe discharge of patients based on their individual needs. My responsibilities included writing daily reviews of patients behavior and any changes thereof, as well as conducting group therapy sessions. I also was responsible for doing rounds every 15 minutes to ensure the location and safety of our inpatients.I learned much about different mental illnesses I was never aware of before, I learned how to take advice and criticism from management such as my head nurse and unit Chief Doctor. The hardest part of the job was dealing with patients while they had emotional and physical outbursts with other patients as well as myself and my colleagues. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing our hard work pay off and patients activities of daily living return to normal and seeing them safely discharged home or to an assisted living facility and knowing that we helped them achieve this goal.
having two weekends off every month, as well as the fact I knew I was helping people in need, Another Pro was having comfortable lounges for breaks and employee celebrations
When patients would quickly return after being discharged, despite the hard work our team had done to get them back on track
