Medical Staff Coordinator (Former Employee) – Loxahatchee, FL – January 11, 2017
The team was great to work with. Very friendly environment and great place to work. The management was very cooperative and understanding. The deadlines and the challenges were the best part of the job.
Register adult and pediatric patients Admit OB and newborn, admissions and direct admit patients Answer phones, computer skills w/ Microsoft, Outlook and Excel Collect payments due I love working in ER. I like being busy. I like the trauma and how everyday is different even doing the same thing. I love the staff, ER doctors, nurses, techs, firefighters, etc
Extremely unprofessional middle managers, only concerned about a body to cover a shift and will cancel staff down to the bare minimum to meet budget...quality patient care is never a concern..just meet the budget.

I don't know what was worse, management walking around with their heads up their rears at all times, the blatant favoritism, or the fact that any problems that came up were treated as if they just didn't exist! the "friends" you had one day indefinitely would turn on you like a rabid dog the next day. IF you got a lunch break you were interrupted constantly, or treated like garbage bc you stopped working for 30 min and God forbid a pharmacist had to get off their rear and do something. The two 15 min paid breaks that are mandatory per OSHA don't exist there. Too much work, very little pay, benefits horrible, all about the Benji$
Can be very busy but provides excellent experience in prioritizing care of patients. My coworkers and I love to work as a team. The job provides experience with managing various patients with multiple disease processes at a time.

Palms West Hospital is a great place to work. They have become very strict over the last couple of years. Every tardy or absence is counted against you. The work load has become a lot per employee as well.
I watched working conditions and morale decline over the last five years. The majority of the workers are exceptional in their dedication to patient care and service, but their contributions often go unrecognized and unrewarded. Salaries are low, benefits are par, and insurance plans are expensive, even with high deductibles. Annual bonuses have deteriorated in amounts and quality. Some members of management and administration appear to be under great strain and accountability, which is often reflected in their disposition and treatment of the staff. Even with the added burdens, demands and unrealistic expectations, the staff manages to provide wonderful care and service. The medical staff is knowledgeable, highly skilled, compassionate, and approachable. This hospital was once a very nice place to work, it has the fundamental components available to be that place again.
Understaffed, low pay, long hours, poor treatment of staff.
