I was given the responsibility to resolve 13 projects in three (3) months.
Assistant Hospital Administrator (Interim) (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXJune 28, 2014
Pros: staff was willing and able to complete tasks.
Cons: initially staff was not use to having other than their staff to supervise them, not use to the different management approach, culture was different
The typically day began with making rounds with the responsible parties of each project. What did they feel that they needed to progress, did they have the tools, inventory, managements assistance? I also asked them what did they feel they could different to do the job to meet their project target date. Once that was accomplished we worked together – more... in setting target date goals. So with this being said, management and staff were able to proceed to achieve the set goal. All thirteen (13) projects were completed before their target dates. The staff was anxious to comply because they had part in the target date decision. The hardest part of the job was leaving a very functional staff and colleagues. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a very bright staff.
I was also given additional responsibilities such as pharmacy conversation from its inhouse pharmacy company to a competitors pharmacy company, moving the business office to a different location, consultation regarding a free-standing 30-bed rehabilitation hospital and asked to be the liaison for administration in overseeing construction of a 90-bed heart hospital. – less

Depends on what your intention is but great for experience, not great for lifetime career
Emergency Room Nurse (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXJanuary 11, 2013
Pros: high patient volume and trauma center, valuable experience gained
Cons: poor nurse patient ratios, poor equipment, breaks required yet no staff to cover. nurses tend to be mean to newer staff
Very poor nurse patient ratios, they are more concerned with making money than keeping things safe, providing needed equipment or getting staffing help. They will run their nurses ragged and they do not put patient care at the top of their priority list. They are more concerned with saving money then their patients. As far as experience goes, this will – more... make a good nurse great, having to work with so little and do so much while dealing with the high patient volume. Not to mention this hospital will expand your bladder exponentially... The nurses are typically mean to the newer staff until they earn their trust and the required education does not focus on the skills that I actually found useful. – less
