Its a chill relax work place
Paitent Transporter (Former Employee), Randallstown, MDMarch 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, MDMarch 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

Employment at Northwest Hospital
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Randallstown, MDOctober 2, 2013
Pros: director of nurses making impromptu rounds during shift
Cons: director of nurses making impromptu rounds during shift
Hardest part of job is when management has to decrease your staff once the shift has started. Enjoyable part of job is meeting coworkers at beginning of shift, seeing patients improve and thankfulness some express for your care. I learned time-management, flexibility, and sometimes you just
need to laugh.

Admittance Registrar/Part Time (Current Employee), Randallstown, MDSeptember 3, 2013
Pros: working with the public

Working with patients and nursing staff on a daily to ensure the best quality medical care or client.

The ER can get very chaotic at, but all staff works to together as a team to get the job done. Patients First – less

Very fast paced and challenging.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee), Tucson, AZJuly 13, 2013
Pros: challenging
Cons: long 12 hour days
A typical work day at Northwest is very mentally challenging. I've learned so much about different health insurance policies, medical terms, and how the medical field works. My management is very understanding of my working two jobs to take care of my daughter. The people I work with are some of the best people to be around. We work so well together. – more... The hardest part of the job is having to do so many things at once. We work different areas everyday and each and every one of them have so much that is needed to be done. I enjoy it because I learn something everyday! – less

Very professional and enjoyable place to work
Food Service Worker (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJune 10, 2013
Pros: excellent environment, fast paced, fun people, excellent benefits
Cons: the volume of customers when i was alone, and was not always able to provide the customers with quick service.
I came in at 9AM each day. My co-worker was the opener and I was the closer. I assisted customers all through out the day, making sure that all surfaces were clean, and that all daily tasks were completed to the utmost of my abilities. In the mid afternoon was the period of time when the heavy cleaning and preparation for closing to take place. I was – more... the one that kept all supplies stocked. I really enjoyed our management, who provided me with opportunities for me grow and progress. I was provided with everything I needed to perform my job functions. The hardest part of my job, was to be able to juggle a crowd when things got busy and I was the only one there. I really enjoyed the interaction with the customers as well as the camaraderie of my co-workers. – less

High paced work enviroment with great patients
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Randallstown, MDMay 28, 2013
Pros: working with people and overtime
Cons: short/no breaks
A typical day at work would be a lot of work as soon as you clock in. We have daily task that we must complete by a certain time so there was no time for procrastination. There was a lot to learn because all my co-workers were a lot older so they always had great advice as far as what to do about school. The hardest part of the job was having to work – more... with someone who wasn't a team player a lot of responsibility would fall on you. – less

This was a great place to work for because it was a fairly new. floor. it was kept clean. they gave free lunch during the holidays.
Clinical Nurse II, PCU (Former Employee), Randalstown MD.May 22, 2013
Pros: free lunch. my supervisor sent me on a nursing retreat w/another employee. all cost was paid for
Cons: it was a long drive through the city.
A typical day at work : involves starting the day with six pts. and ending w/six pts. Most of the time, four out of six pts. are stable. This does not mean that you are free from any statues changes. You must realize that these four pts.can change for the worst at any given time. keeping this in mind you must at all times keep your eyes closer on those – more... two unstable pts. and manage your time more effecient to be ready for changes at any given time. You must at all times work close to your co-workers as a team. Why? because they must be able to count on you at any cost and so do you w/them. It does not matter if you agree w/every thing about them or if you even like them.Think as if wee are all family for these 8-12hr. for the pts. sake. The hardest part of the job is having a nurse or a cna. transferred to your floor who is not a team player. This day just happens to be one of those days when you have two adimissions and two discharges within a 12hrs. shift. This is probably one of the hardest part of the job. However, the hardest part is the lost of a pt. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you know that, as a nurse you are really touching and changing some one life. ex. A pt. or his/her family member says something like this: "Nurse you give me Hope," Thank you." At this present time, all the work you performed to be at this place worth it all. – less
