It's challenging work with staff reductions whereby many managers and Directors are wearing multiple hats and assuming multiple responsibilities.
Security Manager/ Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 11, 2012
I was originally hired as the Security Manager for the Hospital and then asked if I would be interested in assuming the Safety Officer position not knowing the Safety Officer position was, in essence, a full-time job in and of itself. There is a substantial degree of responsibility with the Safety Officer's position which is challenging, intriguing, frustrating, and fun all wrapped up into one big package. The staff is outstanding and worked tirelessly to provide outstanding patient-care. The biggest frustration is the lack of financial resources which has developed due to State budget cuts that virtually eleiminated health-care for those persons less-fortunate and unable to pay for their own insurance.
arizona's healthcare system has been severly impacted by the current state of the economy.
