Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Oroville, CA – March 12, 2016
Oroville Hospital is one of the busiest hospitals in butte county. Whether I'm compounding, filling Pyxis or stocking the units with solutions, I am constantly moving. Being able to multitask is a must, and I can say with confidence that I am excellent at multitasking. Along with being proficient with my work, I am friendly and have a great relationship with all of my coworkers. I have learned so much working for Oroville Hospital, and am incredibly grateful for everything my employer has done for me. I have been wanting to move to Southern California for the last 4 years, and now that I've built my career I'm ready to branch out to reach my full potential.

Licensed Vocational Nurse (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – November 22, 2013
Typical day included measuring pediatric vitals, medication reconciliation, initiate well child physical exams, medication/injection administration and follow up on care. Learned to multitask and time management. Co-workers were full of team players who always helped one another. Hardest part of the time was during the winter season, which is the busiest season of the year. Most enjoyable part of my job was the smile from our patients and parent satisfaction with my care that I provided to them and their child.
I have enjoy working at Oroville Hospital helping people.

CT Technologist/Xray Technologist (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – July 31, 2013
Fortunately I love what I do. The frustration comes into the equation when you need something from management. They give you the nod, and you wait for the request to be completed. The advancement rate is poor, because once they like where you are at, ie graveyards, you are stuck as it is difficult to fill those positions with dependable peeps that can do the work and work independently with out supervision, so in a sense you are punished for being a great worker. So Frustrated. The people that get the promotions are the peeps that are seen daily, PM's and graves are kind of a forgotten island. Even when applying for a position, you wont get a call for an interview. The equipment is subpar, something is always broken a bucky that needs constant adjustment just to use. Collimators that dont collimate. We have two portables, and one is down at least once a month. If the CT scanner goes down we have to transport the pt to the clinic and use the scanner down there, which is fine as it used to be at the hospital, no contrast can be administered at that site. These things are all things that come with the job, Creativity and flexibility, but Management doesnt acknowledge this, you will work really hard, only to hear about your mistakes. No encouragement, no kudos. No equality among the Technologists, ie some techs are working without Fluoro licenses, and therefore dont go to surgery, or do fluoro, yet are paid the same
awesome co-workers from the er to the floors.
on pm shifts and graves, you need to clock out for lunch, but you're probably going to be working thru it, you cant clock back in for a full thirty minutes with the system in place, no advancement, subpar equipment
linen attendant/ housekeeper (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – December 26, 2013
day to day hospital life is never easy. sometimes you can get stressed out before your shift even stars. luckily oroville hospital was a place where you never felt alone. i could always call on co workers for help and my supervisor was there to encourage and guide as needed. the most important moment of my life happened there, the birth of my son, so i was able to experience being both the employee and patient side of things. i learned compassion for those in need, patience and that people will always surprise you. the hardest part of my job was realizing that the sounds you hear are from people, the smells and messes, all from people, and we are all the same and deserve the best treatment from all who play a part in our life

i loved all i did there just needed to expand my knowlege in another department.
Intern, Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – September 24, 2012
As an intern I felt that there was not much emphasis on teaching but more emphasis on using the Interns as "extra labor" to fill in for staff who called in sick (which was a daily occurrence). Equipment was, overall, not maintained and you had to "work around" quite a few equipment problems. I found this to be the hardest part of the job because I felt I was not giving the patients optimum care. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the Radiologists, most of whom were very professional and had a lot of patience with students.
Environmentalist (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – August 1, 2013
A typical day includes gathering required materials and greeting the supervisors. During the day I would start by cleaning rooms in order starting with highest priority. Co-workers are always available to lend a helping hand in tough situations. The hardest part of the job was seeing so many sick people, but I know that the little things I did for them helped both the patient and their families. I always enjoyed smiling at families and visitors giving them a big boost during their difficult times.
