The hospital is changing radically.
Pros: Nice people, small, friendly setting, long tradition of exceptional patient care.
Cons: Constant emphasis on economy, being forced to "flex" when circumstances dictated.
I have no complaints about my immediate co-workers or managers. We had a tightly knit Medical Imaging group where almost without exception my coworkers were friendly, professional, and willing to help out or "cover your back". I learned everything I know about being a radiologic technologist there, with great help from my more experienced coworkers. Radiology Is a second career for me, so their help was gratefully accepted. The most enjoyable parts of the job came in knowing I had done the best job possible when imaging in the OR. Receiving praise from a surgeon after a particularly difficult case was most gratifying.
The hardest part of the job was the constant knowledge of financial difficulties/job insecurity. Knowing that the change to a for-profit facility was inevitable, and the increasingly re-active (as opposed to proactive) management.
