IT Help Desk Technician (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – November 3, 2015
This was a real eye opener. My skill set wasn't really up to where I needed it to be when I first started working here but I picked up a lot of things quickly and easily became part of the team. Working here, I realized that this is what I want to do.
Health Information Management Clerk (Internship) (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – July 7, 2015
As an intern in the HIM department at San Juan Regional Medical Center I become aware of the various policies that are being implemented in the hospital to keep the patients' privacy and to provide a high quality of care. At first, I find everything difficult and had a hard time coping up with my new environment, but with the help of my co-workers I was able to adjust and do my job properly. All of them were very competent, patient, friendly, and approachable. Furthermore, they helped me familiarize the different fields in the HIM and its functions. All in all, my internship in San Juan was very enjoyable and a worthwhile experience.
What i enjoy about my job is that it we always work as a team, people will treat you with respect and always being polite. What i learn at my job was that we are organize for different shifts to have everything run smoothly through a productive day.

I loved this job I was there for a long time. I thank them for all the knowledge i've gained. my coworkers were ok, I loved the OR and I would go back just not in the same area. would like to broaden my knowledge in the hospital
RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN! Or you'll turn PSYCHoo
Employee (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – March 3, 2015
For the few years I worked here, there were a lot of staff turnovers. The common knowledge was that, they were let loose. I ran as fast as I could as I felt like I was next on the chopping block. I felt like I was targeted, like my ex-colleagues. And I just got out right in time. Another one was fired, months after I left.
At staff meetings, suggestions by staff are rudely denied by manager. Meetings often focused on staff who made mistake, embarrassing them and when someone dares to defend the person being bullied, he himself is also criticized.
When an issue is brought to the attention of the manager or even up to the higher ups, employee will be seen as trouble-maker and the administration will be watching your every move waiting for you to make a mistake, then threaten to or "hint on" firing you.
Even after a year of leaving, my colleagues, who are still working there are asking me to write a letter telling how I was harassed, to support them on their rally against the manager and are AGAIN filing a complaint to the higher ups.
Lots of Nepotism too, especially in the administration (bestfriends slash neighbors, cousins, daughter-in-laws to father-in-laws, mother-daughter), thus workplace unfair politics and favoritism.
You have been warned.
camaradere and team work among staff, okay benefits, there are always job openings due to fast turnovers, experience so you can move on to a real job, a pretty hospital, decent cafeteria food
non-union workplace, politics, passive-aggressive unit manager, nepotism thus favoritism, the upper administration protecting their own, disgruntled coworkers, ridiculous salary ($20/hr newgrad rn), no job securilty
MEDICAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – February 11, 2015
Working at the urgent care/family medicine has been a great experience. I had the opportunity to learn how to do IV's, splints and apply temporary slings. I loved working there. It was always busy and when we had down time, there was always something to keep us busy. The hours of work weren't difficult at all. I enjoyed working side by side all the medical staff and learned a lot from each other. Never a dull moment at work. It was tons of fun.
Medical insurance billing for patients insurance companies, copying, faxing, meeting percentage for clinics at end of each month, small balance adjustments for payments. Enjoyed working with other fellow workers and getting our goals met for the end of month with insurance billing
Working at a hospital is going to be busy, but I feel I was overworked and underpaid.
Transporter (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – July 23, 2014
Typical work day: 7 am: clock in and start making phone calls to arrange transport around the hospital, start getting patients and transferring them from their hospital bed to a gurney or wheelchair, find their nurse (Good luck) to document form and disconnect IV/monitors, aid in trasnferring patient. Wait for nurse for average of 15 minutes, meanwhile getting phone calls that there are stat patients that need to be transported from ER or ICU right now, meanwhile more patients are requesting to be transported. Keep transporting usually with not rest or breaks, not even lunch until 7pm.
What I learned: SJRMC is a busy place. Staff seem overworked, my job especially. Staff are not very willing to help other staff. Don't work at a hospital unless you are a doctor or someone who does not directly have contact with patients such as administration. Go to school and get a good education to get a better job, otherwise you will end up pushing stretchers around a hospital for 12 hours with no breaks and living in a van down by the river!
decent benefits, discounted food at cafe, employee gym is small, but free.
overworked and underpaid. little aid from coworkers who also were too busy to help.
As a Rad Tech student I worked many different clinical sites including three different Hospitals, a surgical hospital, a orthopedics office as well as out patient facilities. I feel very comfortable in every accept of being a Radiologic Technologist. I'm just looking for a place to start. I more than willing to travel and work PRN shifts as well as part-time and full-time.
Run as fast as you can worse hospital I ever worked for!
SONOGRAPHER (Former Employee) – ULTRASOUND DEPT. – January 25, 2014
Worked as a sonographer there, nothing but chaos in the ultrasound dept. No order, no direction, standard of care being violated everyday. Management out of touch. No management accountability. Unprofessional radiologists who know nothing about ultrasound. Lead sonographer lies to cover her inability to lead.
ER Registration Manager (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – May 30, 2013
Fast paced job. During busy times lobby would fill up completely mean while in the back ambulances and police cars would bring in patients. Learned to multi task and prioritize and how to handle stressful busy situations and irate customers who experienced long waits to be seen by dr.
employees, dr.'s and nurses
ambulances through the back long waits in the front
ex-employee (Former Employee) – clerical – March 18, 2013
Applicant beware! There is no loyalty within this organization at all. Mangement is allowed to run over employees and have free rein to treat employees anyway they feel without any fear of being called on it by upper management.
