Excellent staff and upbeat environment
Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Medical/Surgical/Orthopedic unit – May 20, 2015
I am the "air traffic controller" for the unit, I keep the front office working efficiently while dealing with patients, family members, Doctors, Nurses, PCT's and heavy phones and patient call lights,. I have learned much about dealing with a patient's and their families concerns on a daily basis as well as how to stay compliant regarding HIPPA regulations. The hardest part of my job is when we have an equipment or computer breakdown since we rely so heavily on them. However when this happens I resort to a backup system which gets us through. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to connect with so many people throughout my day and knowing that I am a key player in such an important field as health care.
My coworkers are highly qualified to do the work that they do and are wonderful people and caregivers as well. We are a great team. I enjoy the fact that I am an important support person to them which makes their jobs easier allowing them more time to spend with their patients. I feel fortunate to be part of such a wonderful team.
Excellent benefits, fine management, state of the art equipment, great people.
Low pay scale for the area and cost of living here.
