Excellent place to work with plenty to learn on a daily basis, never gets boring.
Clinical Engineer (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – October 18, 2015
For me a typical day would be spending the entire day handling stat calls coming from the 17 main OR rooms, 6 ASU OR rooms, 6 CJRI OR rooms, 3 Surgicare OR rooms, 2 Electrophysiology Labs, 3 Catherization Labs, 1 main ECG Lab, Sleep Lab with 6 beds, Pulmonary Labs, 3 Stress Labs, 1 Exercise Lab, and the Ultrasound Lab. Performing incident reports and incident investigations. Working with Risk Management and Purchasing on new product testing. Performing the role of the CMLSO, Certified Medical Laser Safety Officer which involved setting up the laser safety program and staff training. Performing inspections and repairs for all the equipment listed in the areas in which I was accountable. Learning on this job was never ending which made the job very satisfying. The best part of the job was not only working in so many different areas but being able to interface with so many highly qualified clinical staff members and management. Basically my co-workers would work as a team when projects were being performed. If not they worked individually on inspections and repairs. The toughest part of the job was being on-call for 22 years and having a one hour round trip per call when not at the hospital. Some weeks receiving up to 50 calls at all hours.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the clinical staff in the clinical environments.
Learned a lot by working with the clinical staff
No breaks or lunch breaks on busy days.
