Patient Transport (Former Employee), Randallstown, MD – October 23, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere.
Cons: faulty management within the patien transport department
Working with Northwest was a amazing expierence. Each day your greeted throughout different locations by friendly people who love their jobs. You meet sincere and caring workers, patients, family and friends. Everyone is always ready to help! Getting up everyday to help those who needed me was the best part of the job. Being someone they can rely on – more... filled my heart with joy. – less
This place is a place that deals with productivity more than personnel as in the past. I learned that this is a place of survival, if you know how to work the system. Management is dog-eat-dog attitude. But once in a while you come across a manager that knows how to combined personnel and productivity to work as functioning unit. The hardest part of – more... working at NW Hospital was being under the new Management which changed focus to productivity and not personnel. The stress level increased. – less
Dietary Aide (Former Employee), Randallstown, MD – October 1, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: short breaks
A typical day there was calm but busy. I learned how to be fast and puctual with delivering trays as well as preparing their food. the managment team was very sufficient in getting the patients fed on time.The hardest part would have to be keeping up and the most enjoyable part was getting over time and time in a half.
Awesome Hospital! Loved my coworkers and the PA's/NP's and MD's are top notch
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Randallstown, MD – August 20, 2014
Everyday is different! I learned so much, the PA's/NP's and MD were AWESOME and always willing to help out and provide educational opportunities despite their busy workload. The staff works great as a team you never feel alone someone always pitches in to help especially the awesome charge Nurses who were just the best!
Cons: patients screaming at you because the doctor isn't ready for them
I currently work nights and often see true emergencies come through the hospital. My day varies from very busy with multiple people in the ER seeking assistance to a handful of patients coming in with stomach aches. I have learned insurance laws, and coordination of benefits as it relates to who pays claims for the patients. I work with a great group – more... of people, everyone can not work nights, yet my co-workers all want to work. The hardest part of the job is when a small child comes in to the ER hurt and I can't personally make it better for them. The most enjoyable part is interacting with the older patients, enjoying when they share their knowledge on whatever crosses their minds. – less
Cashier l (Current Employee), Randallstown, MD – June 27, 2014
Everyone is friendly. The food is beyond delicious. I have several customers that are not patients that come to the café just to get food. There is also this one particular women who only comes to the café on my shift because she likes my superior customer service skills.
Paitent Transporter (Former Employee), Randallstown, MD – March 6, 2014
Pros: moving up in the hospital better job, always can get more hours.
Cons: somedays are really hetic, someone life is in your hands at all the times so you have to always be on your p's and q's
I work the evening shift. Its a smaller hospital so some days we are really busy other days we are slow paced but you're always working. communication is the key to being successful as a transporter. In the hospital you have every race, and different cultures which makes it a divers community. Everyday you met someone new. The Patient Transport community – more... is the most relax hectic place at times. We interact with the patients, staff, and family members. A typical day at work is taking task from the dispatcher. You must complete the task of taking a patient from a test site back to there room; vise versa; or from there room to the front of the hospital to be discharged home. You are giving a 45 min break for your whole shift, but if it a slow day you might just be sitting in the office relaxing until you receive a task. You are giving a pager so that you can no when you have a patient or not. You are also assigned to the ER (emergency room) where you are in charge of the paitent who have walked in and need admitate help. Its fast pace you are designated to the area. Co-worker are cool to you don't have any drama because everyone know what there task are. The most enjoyable part about the job is you are always moving. Staying in shape is not a problem. Also you enjoy the fact there is always better opportunity of moving up in the hospital. Paitent Transporter is a foot in the door to a better job or career. – less
I love how everyday is different it keeps me on my toes and learning new things everyday
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Randallstown, MD – March 1, 2014
I love being a Nurse everyday is different and you get to meet so many different people and everyday is an opportunity to learn something new whether its a new skill or a new piece of knowledge you have gained. I love going home at the end of the day and knowing I provided the best care possible to my patients who deserve only the best. I like to treat – more... everyone as if they were my own family member. I also love how everyone works as a team from the Doctors, PA's NP's your coworkers managers nursing assistants and anyone else I forgot to mention. Whatever is going on in my life going to work is like an escape from all the outside stressors once I enter my job, I leave it all at the door and knowing that I am helping someone who is in a vulnerable situation means the world to me. You can't go to work looking for compliments but it just makes you feel like your in the right profession and you made a good choice by becoming a Nurse when a patient or family member does give you a compliment or when they are discharged and you give them a hug. That's how you know your doing your job. Some days are good and some days aren't so good but that's with any job. However, I think the good days outweigh the bad days. I am so glad I became a Nurse!!!!! – less
