Cleaning and steralizing Dr. offices or patient rooms
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – November 10, 2015
Cleaning Dr. Offices and other areas in the medical building along with emptying trash, disposing of toxic waste properly and working up to becoming a bed housekeeper on the evening shift. I learned all of the proper OSHA rules and regulations for the chemicals used to clean and disinfect all areas including the patient rooms. My manager and the shift manager were very kind and helpful during the time of my employment and very understanding as to the reason that I had to resign my position. The hardest part of the job dealt with the pushing of the cleaning cart and was the reason why I had to resign from working in that type of job. The best part of the job was when I was able to make it to being able to become a bed housekeeper and clean the patient rooms and delivery rooms once a patient was dismissed from that room to home or another room.
having to work every other weekend, being able to get days off on a short notice if absolutely necessary, knowing work shifts two weeks in advance, being the bed housekeeper, having good managers
staying late from a late delivery that took longer than expected, late delivery that became a C-section so had to clean two rooms, short handed making everyone do extra work, being called in on day off

FLOAT POOL REGISTERED NURSE (Former Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – February 13, 2017
Unfortunalety, I enjoyed working as a float pool nurse but was often under appreciated within our hospital. Many times asked to take high number of patients with high acuity making it very difficult to give each patient a good experience and feel like I had provided the best care for them.
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – April 29, 2015
The biggest problem is they do things like expand the pay range, but you have no way to move up. You can get further certifications, etc., but that doesn't mean any more pay. We were told that we are compared to other hospitals in Nebraska and when we researched our pay we were well below the average. Even though, they claim that we are paid a comparable rate.
Management flat told us we are a dime a dozen and easily replaceable.
Right now, in one department they are advertising as far away as Europe because they can't get anybody to apply. This is for a fairly regular nursing position.
Hospital improvements are made on the backs of employees without even giving the employees a cost of living raise for several years.
Technologist (Former Employee) – Lab – August 9, 2012
In one section of the Lab, there have been frequent postings for a small department over the last couple of years. Well despite my hesitation, I bit and applied and learned first-hand how unpleasant a work environment can be. Management is unwilling to deal with the real problems in that section causing high turn-over. Though not sure if I am speaking of the same problem the former posting was... There's a new posting for a tech today!
expensive rent; dumpy, dirty town that stinks of burning sugar beets.
Lab (Former Employee) – Scottsbluff – April 6, 2012
If your goal is to be treated in an unprofessional manner in a vindictive atmosphere you have found a home here. Your contributions to this organization will be overlooked, raises meager, among management that treats you like a galley slave. Beware, no one lasts more than a couple of years here, especially in the AP lab. If you are looking for a very temporary job this might work for you, otherwise, do yourself a favor and keep looking.

Project Tech (Current Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – April 8, 2012
I take care of trash duties, clean, and dispose of hazardous materials. I have learned how to setup beds for patients and got a chance to be around patients. Hardest part of my job is I work harder than everyone else and you probably see where that goes.
helping patients and keeping clean atmosphere
not enough pay, for working hard i am taken advantage of a lot.
Lab Clerk (Former Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – April 29, 2013
I worked nights so it was fun. I learn so much. Lot's of data entry work. Lot's of HIPPA enforcement. Management was great. Always ready to help when needed. Co-workers worked as a team. Hardest part of the job was trying to get all the work done in time. Best part was there was always something new to learn!!
Regional West is a great place work with very caring co-workers
Patient Account Representative (Former Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – April 28, 2014
My typical work day was doing daily cash from the day before insurance payment postings. Posting all pharmacy insurance payments and making sure all balanced. This was usually done before lunch after lunch I would print claims and then print off the EOB to match the claim for mailing. I learned a lot about different insurance companies Medicare and Medicaid prefer their claims to be sent electronically and most other 2ndary require theirs to be sent hard copy with prime EOB. I worked very well with management and absolutely loved most of my co-workers. Hardest part of my job was contacting insurance companies for follow up really dont like being on hold for ever.
Family always came first very easy to take off for appointments
Health insurance went way up this year, no RX insurance, very high deductibles and coinsurance amount
Easy going atmosphere; very approachable management
Registered Respirtory Therapist (Current Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – January 22, 2014
Average work load for a small town hospital. Co-workers willing to help and share workload. The hardest part of the job is getting timely pages to respiratory for routine orders. The most enjoyable part of the job is that everyone gets along well.

Compensation Analyst (Current Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – June 11, 2015
Regional West Medical Center one of the largest and best employers in Western Nebraska. With over 2000 employees they have made numerous changes over the past 5 years under new leadership/CEO. They have some of the most competitive wages and benefits in the area (I do work in compensation). I have been with the organization only about 5 months. In that time I have seen the culture that they are building around the region, with patients, employees, and their families. I feel that that management is working to build a culture of both growth and change. So far I have loved my at experience with Regional West and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great employer. I was originally from California but have feel in love with the area over the past 10 years. I purchased a house in Gering Ne with has beautiful Bluffs I drive through daily. They were rated one of the top places in Nebraska for families and schools. I do miss the beach but we do have a lake that is a lot of fun too. I give two thumbs up for Regional West.
People, Culture, Area Lifestyle, Pay, and Team Mentiality.
Competes with much larger hospitals in bigger areas
