RN (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – June 4, 2017
I enjoyed working at Poplar Bluff Regional , I felt like I learned a lot in the specialty area I was working in. I also enjoyed working as a team to get tasks completed as was done in the department I worked in.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – March 7, 2017
Throughout the day I am by myself. I don't have to deal with customers or other people. Majority of the time I am by myself. Since it is a fast passed work environment, your have to learn to move quickly to get a patient into the room. The management could have been a little better but it is what it is. I didn't really enjoy the environment too much. I ended up getting real sick by being near sick people overall. The hardest part was trying to get as many rooms clean before your eight hour shift has ended. I really enjoyed that it was full time and I had benefits, but overall wasn't the job that suited my needs.
Didn't have to leave work to go to lunch. There was a cafeteria
Barista (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – February 28, 2017
Overall this is probably one of the best places in town to work, People are polite and excited, being a part of the team here feels nice because people take your accomplishments serious and cheer for you to aspire to become more.
NRCMA / Receptionist (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – December 4, 2016
Busy from time you enter until you leave, I have learned so much, billing, insurance,doctors responsibility, appointments. Management is okay. Co-workers are great. Trying to get everything done before the end of the day is hard sometimes.
If you work at HHS ( Hospital Houskeeping System ) at Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center watch out !
Transporter (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – June 7, 2016
This job is contracted through the hospital I transported patients to get x-rays and test ran it is basically just a orderly job but HHS just makes the job look and sound very good. I would have stayed but ended up resigning because I was treated very bad and was mistreated by the employees that I worked with. This is nothing but a kid job it has teenagers working here the hours is not that great and the pay is not that great either for all the running in the hospital that you do putting people in wheelchairs and rolling stretchers down the hall. You also have to take CPR in order to do this job in the first place you have to work with somebody by your side if you don't have CPR. yes I have CPR training but not by choice you have a phone on you that never stops ringing it becomes very annoying. If you like teenagers that bother you all the time and I do mean ALL THE TIME and can't keep from touching you then this is the job for you. Management at HHS is very unresponsive and weak if you report anything don't expect anything to get done or get resolved because it won't. I wished that I never applied to a job like this one.
Telephone Operator (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – February 23, 2016
typical day is answer a phone all day long which I didn't mind I didn't care for the treatment that I received from other employees transferring calls and looking up room numbers on a computer. The room that I received calls was small and confining management was ok. The job was ok
My manager was nice and very informing
Confined work space / employees need to watch the way they treat others
PCT (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff Mo – May 27, 2015
A typical day at work is long and tiring, working in acute care can be exhausting. To work at this hospital is taxing but well deserving, i've learned how to take care of many medical problems, how to adjust a telementry, better transfer methods, and medical problems. Management at PBRMC are always willing to listen to any conflicts that one may have and acts upon them to get them resolved. I would say the hardest part about this job is that sometimes it feels like you have too many things going on at once but you always have another team member there to help. They are great about teamwork and giving a helping hand. At PBRMC the most enjoyable thing to me is the connection i get from various patients, i connect with them and talk to them about their history and culture, their kids or grandkids. You never know what you may learn from the patients themselves or the from the hospital settings.
work 3 days, extra shift bonus, vacation accrued right away
The most dangerous place for patients I've ever worked.
Healthcare professional (Former Employee) – Oak Grove Road – May 13, 2015
If you enjoy eating and goofing off while patients suffer, this is the place for you. There are no rules and people aren't held accountable or even encouraged to provide mediocre care. Pay isn't competitive.
Nice new building
Low wages, unprofessionalism, laziness and rudeness were the norm. Most people who work there are illiterate white trash.
Productive and fun workplace with opportunity to grow in any field.
Lead Admitting Specialist (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – May 3, 2015
General work days are 12 hour shifts depending on department. Insurance benefits are the best that I have seen with rates that are affordable. Pay varies based on job description and experience. There is room for advancement as well as improvement. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to advance in their chosen field.
worked at. facility for years more poor management
Certified Nurses Asstance (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – April 18, 2015
No place for advancement insurance. Has changed higher Co payments doesn't pay as much to even use there. Facility which is a agreement. Over worked And overtime can be demanded without notice. Patient staff ratio is unbelievable. Patient care poor due to this if I was a patient. There I would not stay without family. I would not recommend a good work place very dangerous for you. And your license. Company will not stand behind there staff
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – July 16, 2014
The area I work in has a great team of people. There is very open communication and everyone pitches in to get any task done, whether it is their job or not. I have learned about customer care and service, training large groups of people, RVU and referral analysis, and how to coordinate over 100 people.
The hardest part of the job many times is we are short-staffed. The most enjoyable part of my job is the team I work with.
3 weeks vacation per year
Insurance went up very high, some benefits were taken away
small hospital with no trauma service and socialable people and staff

Health Information Technology Externship (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – June 19, 2012
A typical day consisted of training in one of the many office positions. I was periodically rotated to each position in the office. I learned the domino effect each position has on the next. The co-workers were very friendly and informative. The employees are very close and described themselves as "like a family". I am very impressed with the management and their ability to advise, communicate, and motivate everyone in the office. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendly, yet busy, atmosphere.
