Instrument Coordinator (Current Employee) – Jefferson, LA – May 28, 2015
Decent company to work for. Pay is not at the national standard. I am not managed by the company. Most co-workers in the sterile processing department are not qualified for the job duties entailed and do not understand the importance of how their job greatly impacts patient care.
Ochsner owns Louisiana but is it worth its name in the community?
HR (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – May 20, 2015
Bureaucracy and Politics are thick at this organization. In my role and with my experience, skillset andresponsibilities, I was paid more than $20K per year under market value, according to the Louisiana Workforce Commission's marketplace salary data. You will not find a better culture (specifically Baptist Hospital) and quality patient care is of the utmost importance. The organization is slow to get anything accomplished administratively and some of its policies are too rigid for the culture of the community that it serves.
Occupational Therapy Assistant (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – April 12, 2015
My day begins at 7:00AM and can last until 5:00 PM. There are frequently no lunch breaks because this is valuable time for documentation of care plans. Time-off is rare and flex days are extremely difficult to move. The most enjoyable part of the job are the interesting patients we care for and educate.
Food Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – jefferson,la. – December 1, 2014
Ochsner was a great company to work for, their food service department is family oriented and very close. I enjoyed working with patients and employees. I also enjoyed educating employees at all stages and motivating them to excel in their future endeavors.
Patient Account Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – June 5, 2014
Ochsner is a reputable organization but not all departments run on the same ethics that the company tries to instill. Upper Management in the PACS department lacks the people skills and empathy to run that department. The most enjoyable part of the job is assisting the patients with their concerns and knowing that at the end of the call you have helped a patient feel more confident that Ochsner care about them. Hardest part of the job is management making employees feel browbeaten. The coworkers work EXREMELY WELL together and are ALWAYS helping and uplifting each other.
Revenue Cycle Representative (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – March 16, 2014
I start my day off by entering and prioritizing my assigned work queue. There are always new things to learn when dealing with various insurance companies. Management and co-workers are kind and always willing to offer help and ideas.
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – March 13, 2014
Going in to work was as though I was going to a social event. Many friends made here. I enjoyed solving problems and interacting with medical staff. When you are working and have one goal in mind, the patient's welfare, then your going to be a team player with everyone. I don't believe any task is too big or too small when everyone is on the same page...everything is important. Having a positive attitude walking in to a task is a good thing!!! No matter what is going around, there is a way to look at a task and a way to not look at it. This is always going to be a choice; it's easier when one chooses to see a positive outcome and just go with it.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Harahan, LA – November 1, 2013
Working at Ochsner Skilled Nursing facility was an knowledgeable experience. I really learned that communication is the most important part of any job, but when dealing with patients, is very important. It takes the whole hospital to work as one.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – May 14, 2013
Enforcing Ochsner rules and regulations, responding to alarms and calls for assistance, patrolling grounds and floors, answering telephone, making daily log of all activities. Management is great. I have learned and become a more personable employee, dealing with all types of people.
