Patient Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 16, 2016
A typical day at Riley was exciting and full of love. I learned a lot of medical terms and a lot about healthcare in general. My co-workers were like family. The hardest part of the job was seeing the sick children fighting for their lives and not getting paid enough for A job that I loved. The most enjoyable part was seeing the children getting to go home.

I love working at Riley Hospital for Children. It is a caring place where like minded professionals work together to solve medical problems for children. This is a great place to work if you love working with people.

Great place to work. Your typical day will be going in getting report from CNA or Nurse. Grab vitals, preform and adl's, intake or output. Depending on the patients that you have you may have feeds or q2 turns. Lab draws are done at 4am and weights at 6. Ortho does rounds at 6am, so if there was anything need to know (pain meds,etc) that will be a great time to ask. Overall, nursing staff is wonderful and friendly. Always make you feel like you are at home.

. Congenital defects calls for very special procedures. I learned so much about child surgical care. Typical days are 8 hours. Being a teaching hospital my co-workers were used to teaching and helping out. Hardest part of the job was the burn unit. Most enjoyable part was helping them. Never saw much of management, I am sure they were very busy for it was a large hospital. Overall a great and compassionate place to work and learn
Registrar/Patient Access (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 7, 2012
Did not like it there at all the five months I worked there...was told I could chillax, read a book, magazine or even browse the net when day was slow and not patients came in and it seems that I was being checked behind when I went on lunch or break. Meaning looking up the history on the computer to see how long I was here or there and all i did was come to work do my job and greet co-workers, stay out of gossip, made sure I did my job to the best of my ability and they ended up transferring a team leader from Methodist to riley and that is when things got childish and cady. It only goes to show grown folks act like children when they feel intimidated........ but this was way back in 2006 and it is 2012 almost 2013 so i am sure there are different leads and management there now....
had to walk a mile to get to work, non professional, gossip, upper management play favorites...not good at all
