Stay Clear of Piedmont Henry Laboratory
Medical Technologist, Med Lab Scientist (Current Employee) – Stockbridge, GA – December 11, 2016
Piedmont Henry's ED is the busiest of all Piedmont hospital EDs - FACT. This provides nearly constant work for the Lab. However, this is a busy hospital in general -two towers- so the pace on 1st and 2nd shift, and parts of 3rd shift is frantic. Everything about this Lab screams chaos: it is dirty, in painful need of new floors , cabinets (from 1979), cluttered, messy and disorganized, apathetic management style from the top to the supervisors. Turnover is the highest I've seen anywhere (I've been in this field quite awhile) from the Techs to phlebotomists. Be prepared to run non stop, rarely get a break and be criticized by management for not doing enough, quickly enough. There are never enough Phlebotomists, and they call out quite a bit as they are worked like old mules. Training is a joke. Management rarely advocates for employees. But, will frequently chastise us for things that are frequently out of our control. Then, there are those who work for 2 people, and those who slack off and seemingly receive no correction. Possibly the worst Lab I've ever worked. However, there are Lab personnel that are hard working, compassionate and are team players because that's who they are in spite of Management support.
A few dedicated, amazing Techs and Phlebotomists
Understaffed, Disorganized, Poor Management who are deaf to the needs of the Lab, No breaks
