Medical Technologist (Former Employee), Quincy, MA – October 16, 2014
Pros: teaching opportunites
Cons: too many 'bosses'
A typical work day included receiving and processing patient specimens. The work was fun and exciting. It was very fast-paced and there were always opportunities to help out in other departments.
The main thing I learned about management here is not to play favorites. It is better to be fair to all employees regardless of their tenure. Honesty is another – more... important lesson learned. Instead of hiding expired reagents or trying to deceive inspectors, it is best to be upfront and honest, make the necessary corrections and move forward.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with unhappy co-workers. There was always an instigator and those who spread rumors or personal matters around the lab. No one could be trusted. It was sad because I like a lot of my co-workers though I knew they would take me down in a heartbeat to save themselves.
The most enjoyable part of the job was teaching the clinical students. Seeing their enthusiasm and allowing them to learn by actually doing the tests themselves rather than watching me, was most rewarding. – less
Nurse Technician (Former Employee), 114 Whitwell Street – November 7, 2013
Pros: great customer service.
Cons: stewart healthcare
I worked at Quincy Medical Center for 12 years and 6 months and I think It is a great place to work. The employers are very good to patients where that special warm and friendly welcome is always there. I learn to appreciate QMC now that I no longer work there and hope that business will start turning around for them. Again great place to work and hoping – more... to go back there to work. – less
Busy work environment but enjoyable and friendly environment.
Patient Transporter (Current Employee), Quincy, MA – April 29, 2013
A typical day of transport would require that I transport patients by wheel chair or stretcher to their medical exams, floor change, surgery, admits or discharge. I would assist the technologists with the required procedures. I have gained a wide variety of knowledge pertaining to medical exams, medical terminology and patient care. All of my co-workers – more... are friendly and easy to work with. Management is understanding and works around my schedule. – less
Parking and Transportation Officer (Former Employee), Quincy, MA – January 8, 2013
While working at QMC I had a really good time. I would drive the shuttle buses to and from the hospital to pick up and drop off patients at the train station. We kept logs daily of how many people we picked up. Best thing about this job was that the patients were usually really nice and sweet. Worst part was actually the vans we had to drive. They were – more... ancient. – less
Nursing Technition, (Former Employee), Quincy, MA – September 2, 2012
My typical night starts at 8pm. to 8am.It begins by making rounds going from patient to patient checking to see if they need anything or if they have to be repositioned.As the night progresses we have to record their In Puts,and Out Puts and report patient care,and make necessary changes to the patients,and answer call bells. In the am we also change – more... and reposition the patients,record their Is and Os,and again their record their care on the computer.Before this is done we draw all the patients bloods.and perform the E.K.Gs that have to be done.If a patient passes away we have to wrap them in a cadiver bag and transport them to the morgue. ..I like working with my coworkers at night we get our jobs done best to our ability.We go home with the thought that we did our jobs to the best of our knowledge. The hardest part of my job is working very short staff. I enjoyed my job. – less
