I enjoyed working with an assigned provider, which taught me to always love what I do...
Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Mechanicsburg PA – June 27, 2014
Pros: excelling, and always being productive as a ccma
I love what I do, taking care of our patients was number one priority. Pinnacle was always on top of their MA's, making sure we were up to date with all our skills and qualifications. We as MA's were tested every 6 mths, to ensure we understand and become the best MA's at Pinnacle. I took my job seriously, especially if patients trusted me their health.
I – more... as a CCMA, and proud and confident in all my skills and accomplishments, and would love to continue my education to better myself in the medical field. – less
Office Manager (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PA – January 7, 2014
Pros: advancement, learning and friendly environment.
Cons: some lack of support from supervisors
This was a great learning environment. Most of the doctors I worked with were helpful and willing to teach. I was able to use all of the skills I learned in school while on the job. I was able to get certifications and learn new skills. Communication from superiors was often lacking and non supportive. They would often tell us what to do with no suggestions – more... as to how to accomplish the task. I was able to advance from MA to office manager. I enjoyed building relationships with patients and staff. The free lunches were a nice benefit and the medical insurance was great. – less
Patient Care Assistant (Current Employee), Harrisburg, PA – September 18, 2013
As a Patient Care Assistant (PCA) I have advanced many skills to guide me in my future career as a Radiology Technologist. Some skills I have improved are time management, verbal communication with patients and co-workers, and patient care in general.
My management and co-workers have been a big part of my success and training as a PCA.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Harrisburg, PA – August 31, 2013
Pros: supportive environment, excellent health care benefits
Cons: unpredictable days
Days are generally very busy. There are deadlines for treatments to be started. Interactions with families, other RN's, physicians, and ancillary staff in order to facilitate the coordination of treatments for the benefit of patients. Manage has been extremely supportive. Co-workers are generally helpful and pitch in without a fuss. I have learned how – more... to work with a diverse group of individuals. The hardest part of this job has been the on call. – less
At work I take patient histories to assess why they are having the exam ordered and to ensure their safety with regards to the possible dangers of an MRI, inject contrast mediums, initiate IV lines, comfort frightened patients who are claustrophobic, and assist other departments as needed. I am also an AHA Instructor for CPR, and I am responsible for – more... maintaining CPR certifications for all qualified employees at our company. I have learned a lot about MRI and other forms of radiology, as well as more about anatomy (which I was fairly well-versed on before beginning my position here). I enjoy my coworkers, but there is no advancement possibilities and my shift (10:30-7:00) does not allow much time for my family. My manager is a pleasant individual, but there are very few staff members who have confidence in him. The hardest part of my job are the late hours, but I deeply enjoy patient care and advocacy. – less
Patient Care Assistant/ Unit Secratary (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PA – April 15, 2013
Alot of work to do. I had great co-workers. I learned alot about team work and medical terms. I loved working with the patients but that was also the hardest part when they were very confused and combative.
LPN / Triage Nurse (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PA – March 11, 2013
Pros: m-f dayshift in office environment
Cons: salary, advancement not happening
Low pay, job descriptions not accurate and doesn't depict the real job. Management is good but co-workers put on a great face till you get hired then you see the real side of the office. Back stabbing from co-workers is worse than high school. Speaking of high school I made more per hour when I was in high school. Hiring process is long but the longer – more... it takes the better for you it is. – less
Patient Care Assistant (Current Employee), Harrisburg, PA – January 21, 2013
A typical day at work is starting with getting blood sugars on all patients, vital signs, and bathing all patients. Helping the nurses with needed tasks. I have learned so much to increase my knowledge for a future career in nursing. The management is amazingly wonderful. Coworkers and smart and great to work with. Hardest part of job is the changing – more... hours. The most enjoyable part is helping people everyday. – less
call centre agent (Former Employee), Johannesburg , Midrand – February 17, 2014
I believe that you have to have the time of your life at your workplace since it is the the place most of your time is spent understanding every individual you work with and making sure that there is always happiness in order for everyone at the end of the day to accomplish the tasks given amicably, the hardest part will be in having to deal with irate – more... customers but also trying at all times to keep your cool which at the end of the day will have good results – less
