Team Leader (Former Employee) – West Plains, MO – January 2, 2017
Management is uncaring toward employees. The financial aspects are stressed over patient care. Very difficult to get ahead, unless you are related to someone in management. They constantly ask you to do more with less.
Infection Control Nurse (Former Employee) – Salem, AR – April 7, 2016
Having a patient with a GI bleed with a hemoglobin of 4.5 and the blood pressure is 79/42 and the patient's religious beliefs prevented blood products. Doing all you can do for this patient including praying and asking for mercy and of course honoring their wishes was stressful. Co-workers assisting with the family's needs and comfort measures given didn't seem to be enough when a 32 year old with 3 little children needed their Mommy to live. Giving the best care possible isn't always enough.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – West Plains, MO – August 30, 2015
A typical day started off at 3 pm, and you never knew if everybody was going to show up or not. I learned how to handle myself in difficult situations and to be able to work when you are short staffed. The management was amazing and most of my co-workers were amazing. The part I enjoyed the most was being able to help somebody even if it was just stopping and talking to a patient.
United States Certified Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – West Plains, MO – March 28, 2015
I worked here from 2000 to 2014 and they were all an awesome place to work. All the departments work good together and the hospital is excellent to work for. I only left due to the travel time each shift and my home town hospital had an opening so I took it.
LPN (Former Employee) – West Plains, MO – March 17, 2015
Mostly dealt with the elderly population, Co-workers were nice to work with, schedule was a bit hectic and I never saw more than 2 days off at a time, despite working 12 hour shifts. Overall it was ok.
Internship Finance Department (Former Employee) – West Plains, MO – July 24, 2014
Matched copies of checks with invoices. Stored in a paid filing cabinet. Add journal entries to the computer and bound. Copies of bank statements. I learned really nothing. I only had one co worker that would help me or work with me. Like they stuck me in a corner and let me go.
Patient Access/Registration Clerk (Former Employee) – West Plains, MO – June 25, 2014
The customers is the hardest thing to forget. Some of the patients we would see on a regular basis and we became almost family. I learned so much from OMC. I was taught the magnitude of what goes on behind the scenes and such. As a patient there myself, I was one of those people that did not like this hospital. Until I worked there and had seen the compassion in my coworkers, I wouldn't have much to brag about. Excellent place to bring light on how much we, employees, cared about our patient's care.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – West Plains, MO – April 12, 2014
My typical shift is long and hurried. I usually work alone and if the ER is busy one person on night shift is not enough. I enjoy working with the female tech in the back, but not the male. He is hateful and grumpy all the time. I realize the lab management has it's hands tied with hiring new employees, especially since OMC has just hired a new CEO. I respect my immediate chain of command bosses in the lab, but this one phlebotmist on nights is just crazy. That's why I am looking for job in a different field.
Enviromental Services (Former Employee) – west plains MO – February 10, 2014
I learned alot about medical terminology and alot about myself and where I hope to be in my future. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people and the patience and I loved to do what I could to help them out to make their stay easier and help the nurses out when they needed a little help.
hours, loved what I did
I had to leave because of the chemicals I worked with and had a high risk pregnancy
Certified Surgical Technologist II (Current Employee) – West Plains, MO – January 27, 2014
healthcare is a very demanding employment. management expects 100% co-workers were very helpful. typical day is very satisfying helping patients. most enjoyable is seeing a healthy baby being born. hardest part is when a patient doesn't make it (fetal demise)
low pay,few hours nosey coworkers, over medicated clients
caregiver (Current Employee) – west plains,mo – December 4, 2013
The pay stinks, so do the hours, they give them to the employees with more time. They only think about their business not that it costs you money to drive for an hour of work. The county nurse asks too many personal questions in front of clients. Then your clients know your business too. BUT she never lets out a peep about her personal life. HIPPA is shoved down your throat but what about our personal business? What protection do we have with nosey workers who stab you in the back?
some nice clients they are the ones who REALLY need the services we provide
