Unfairness in the work area, partiality was shown, Some employees were not held accountable for their work, at that time it would just be handed off to a person that always completed their work. Management started not caring. CEO and CFO resigned, Board members resigned, it was fighting between the board and the physicians in the community.
I love my work; billing, collecting and working with the public
Registration (Former Employee) – Milledgeville – August 27, 2015
A typical day at work was come in and start paperwork. Register all the patients in the ER and get all of their information. I learned how to use their computer and filing system. I did not deal with that much management other than the Supervisor over the Administration Department. The hardest part of the job was dealing with all the sick patients. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people.

Hostess/Dietary Supervisor (Current Employee) – Milledgeville, GA – May 27, 2015
ORMC is a good place to work. I think that right now, people aren't too sure of their job security. Before everything, I was really happy about working there. I just need something that is stable to provide for my family.
Technician (Current Employee) – Milledgeville, GA – April 3, 2015
I miss the way this hospital use to feel. Before I felt like I was a part of a team, I have been reduced to a number. I understand times are hard but I haven't had a raise in 5 years. I have bills too! I hope that ORMC is bought by a hospital that understands how to manage itself and makes the necessary changes. I hate that I am even looking for another job but again, no raise in 5 years.
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – Milledgeville, GA – March 9, 2015
The work is very demanding and long hours. There is not a lot of support from management on any level. Co-workers are as overworked as you are during a sift, therefore can be of little help. The hardest part of the job is not feeling like you are making any difference in your patients life because of workload.
PATIENT ACCESS REP (Former Employee) – Milledgeville, GA – November 11, 2014
I worked 12 hour shifts. I had the opportunity to work under great management. I was able to learn a lot about the healthcare industry. While working there I gained friendships that still impact my day to day life. During my time there as a registrar, I was able to become more familiar with insurance policies and procedures. This has helped me in more ways than one, even outside of working in the field. There was not really any hard part of the job. If I had to say so, it probably would be dealing with all the insurance changes. I enjoyed my job a lot and I appreciate all things that carried away from it.
Paid vacation, Free holiday meals, Gained insurance knowledge, Made life time friends
There were times that I worked from 7pm until 7am. During these times, you could only take a break if it was slow, and most times it was not slow.
Unit Secretary and Emergency Dept. Technician (Former Employee) – Milledgeville, GA – August 25, 2014
Start at 7am. Stock all rooms in the ER. Order any supplies needed for the ER. Enter patients and their information as they come in the ER. documenting all patient care into the computer. Transport patients to and from other departments as needed. Arrange transfers for patients. Helping patients with available resources that they may not know of. I enjoyed working with the patients as well as their families. It is my experience that sometimes Healthcare workers forget that the families are a big part of the patients care. They need to be educated about the care of the patient as well as the patient.
Being able to help people and take the time to be there for them when they really need someone.
Not having enough time to spend with the patients due to the work load of the ER.
File Room Clerk (Former Employee) – Milledgeville, GA – July 6, 2014
It was your typical office job. I filed records and pulled them for doctors as needed. There was no pay since it was a volunteer job, but i did get free lunches and snacks. The employees were fun to be around and talk to.
