The staff there are friendly and caring. The nurses and doctors are down to earth people. Everyone is a team player and works as a team. The OR nurses are just amazing, they know exactly what you need and most of them know the procedure by heart and knows what to chart.

ER / Admitting Counselor Clerk (Former Employee) – St. Petersburg, FL – July 12, 2016
I work at this company for over 8yrs been through several take overs and stood faithful, worked doubles and extra time, Then HCA?Parlone came in and under new directors, changed the whole setup and they were worried more about money and profit then their employees and their lives. It's a shame how they forget.
My typical day or night at work, begins with talking to my co worker who shift is ending and do a run down on what's on the board and patients to registration or admit. I enjoy working in the ER because we are the first on hand to give them the one on one care process that they will be experiencing throughout their visit or continue on stay. In the end of the day or night it is comforting to know I along with my team coworkers gave the best we had.
Social Worker/Counselor for Acute Rehab (Current Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – July 16, 2015
A typical day begins by a morning meeting discussing potential new admission and anticipated discharges. Then I make rounds on patients. I have learned that in Acute Rehab family members as well as the patient get the stay here confused with the stay at a skilled care facility. So I learned to asked I they understand their estimated length of stay verse that of a skilled facility. I work well with others however, it's sad here that management is not very supportive of other disciplines (Staff) other than nursing. The hardest part of this job is having a private space in order to speak with family members regarding discharge plans or other concerns they may have. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping other and knowing I made a difference in someone life.
Getting to know the patients and family and assisting them with the concers they have.
No office space to talk or counselor with patient's families
Business Billing Office Assoicate (Former Employee) – 1501 Pasadena Ave. So. Saint Petersburg, FL – October 14, 2014
you are to review your work list, prioritize your daily activities and i would call an insurance company and review all possible patient accounts with that company and push to have claims processed for pymt to our facilty. Any incoming calls were to be answered and resolve concerns/issues regarding calls. complete data entry from reports per office protacal. Complete patient refunds as needed. I learned to be flexible and take on all tasks as they were a great learning curve. i have always stepped forward to advance in any skill i could and this office was always willing to provide that opportunity to those who wanted it. Like all large groups of associates, you need to be selective in your sharing and be respectful. The hardest part of this job was dealing with the office politics and again i have learned to be selective of issues on a personal level. Stick to your business at hand. I did truly enjoy that fact that this office gave me opportunity to advance and learn new skills. I went from a position that was created to pull the mail and complete data entry to learning to file probate for patient accounts, provide customer service calls, pulling medical information to complete billing records to insurance companies. I completed patient refunds as needed and advanced to collection skills all starting with and $8.00 hrly. salary to $14.00 hrly all in a five year span. I feel confident in those skill though they are a few years behind me. i would like to have an opportunity to continue on that and learn additional skills that will advance me in any position.
monthly bonus for whole office if goals were met, and usually were met
issues with associate illness. stay home if your sick. don't spread jerms

Diet Technician/Diet Clerk (Current Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – April 1, 2014
The Dietary department at Palms of Pasadena is a great place to work if you are looking for a job, whether it is PRN, part-time, or full-time. Management will work with your schedule if you are taking college classes. Shifts vary within a window of 5 AM to 7:30 PM; if you are not flexible, this is not a job for you. Your schedule will most often vary quite a bit. If you are a dedicated worker, however, the pay is very good for an entry-level job and full-time comes with benefits like PTO, insurance, and a 401K.
Managed Care Insurance Collector (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – March 18, 2014
Typically, I would hit the ground running at the hospital. From calls to insurance companies, call backs to patients or dealing with other hospital departments, I loved this job. I learned that it really does take everyone to make a successful office. Some of the management was very helpful and encouraging while others were not quite as much fun to work with. There were many challenges to reach our financial goals for the hospital but almost with out exception, those goals were met or exceeded. I loved the bonuses that we could earn for exceeding our goals. I loved the cafeteria food and I loved that the hospital was right on the water so my breaks could be spent watching dolphins and fish. The most difficult part of the job was leaving. I was there almost 15 years and left for another job which did not materialize.
great benefits, great people to work with and a wonderful location
Very challenging. Stayed very busy. I love hospital work!

Emergency Room Registrar (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – November 28, 2012
At the time, if you didn't follow management around and kiss the hems of their pants/skirts then you were blacklisted and things were put in your file that you would never know about until they would have enough to pin on you to kick you out. Even if things were untrue and it was same manager saying you did all these things even though there was no one to back up their story. Watch your backs and kiss thy hand.
