Working at the hospital is a fast paced, non-stop, multi-task work environment. I had previously worked the same type of job, so I knew what was expected. My co-workers and I worked as an efficient team. The hardest part of the job was being understaffed. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the patients.
Productive Critical Care Hospital that maintained family, caring atmosphere.
Radiology Department Manager (Former Employee) – Kingwood, WV – December 6, 2016
My last place of employment was a small hospital in my home town. It was a very productive hospital but kept it's small town / family atmosphere. The administration worked hard for the employees to maintain competitive salaries and benefits while maintaining a positive budget. My carer as manager opened my eyes to the constant obligations of all of administration to maintain a positive functioning establishment. I appreciated the dedicated work from the CEO down to the individual managers. We witnessed several government changes but due to education provided and support given we were always able to manage our departments while never interrupting patient care. The hardest part of my job was keeping my employees engaged in our patient survey quests. Although they understood the importance of each survey they often felt overwhelmed by the responsibility placed on them to try to get the surveys returned by their patients. On the other hand the best part of my job as manager / x-ray tech was being able to bring comfort to our patients.
Administration acknowledged all departments when they excelled in meeting goals, free special occasion meals
At times is felt as if the departments other than nursing were overlooked.
I loved working here and most of the staff are fantastic, however there are some people who create a hostile work environment. The best of staff is the night shift workers. They are the best! Night shift employees were very fun, professional, and logical. Management is all over the place.
Was brought on as a Security Officer with a new Security Department. We were there around eleven months and the Hospital decided to eliminate our entire Department and turn over all security functions to the maintenance department. Apparently done as a cost cutting measure.
liked working with the staff, helping patients and staff
