Registered Nurse-Patient Flow Coordinator PRN (Current Employee) – Petersburg, VA 23805 – April 15, 2017
A typical day includes sign off/on report with previous shift, including the upcoming needs of the day and plan. From there if there is a shift then collaboration of team members involved. Management has improved and our new CNO has expectations of teamwork. There are the usual obstacles with some employees not wanting to participate with the collaborative measures of the group. The hardest part of my experience in my position is having the correct numbers I need to equally disperse patient volume, but this gets worked out eventually. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with people I have known for years and feeling that we are some what part of a "Family".
Time off is manageable. As a patient using our hospital the bill is minimal.
The same as any other hospital, sometimes staffing is short, usually gets worked out though.

FOrmer CSM (Former Employee) – Ohio – May 11, 2016
Eligibility Screening Service LLC is the lowest common denominator in the Medicaid eligibility business. After nearly 8 years in business there are no SOP across regions, archaic reporting systems where managers should always have a tablet, calculator and pencil when performing trend reports. Directors lack the knowledge to lead their teams. Punitive environment where trickle down ignorance is encouraged from senior directors and Hr director. Very high turnover from management to onsite teams. No such thing as 75 percent travel - when the directors bark, you move to the tune of 100 per cent travel.
The ability to hire promising staff
Experiencing promising staff feeling overwhelmed and leaving
Director Case Management (Former Employee) – Petersburg, VA – January 11, 2016

This externship was great. My fellow co-workers who oversaw my externship were very patient, kind, and very experienced.

Complying with hospital and national safety protocol and procedure.
Patient Service Representative/Registration/Triage (Former Employee) – Petersburg, VA – September 22, 2015
Doctors office atmosphere. No support from management. All about how many patients could be seen in a day, and not about the kind of care the patients were receiving, To much gossip from management about other employees. The feeling of tension in the air from all co-workers, no body was happy with how things were run, None of the offices worked as a TEAM to help each other out,
I have done customer service my entire career , and never in my life have I ever given a poor review. However even today i could go and see on ex co-worker and they would tell me that nothing has changed and that it is still the same.

Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Petersburg, VA – May 31, 2015
Acute care environment. Medical Surgical, great learning/teaching atmosphere. The most enjoyable part of the job was the learning. It was my first job out of nursing school, and I was blessed to have worked with a lot of seasoned nurses who were as eager to teach as I was to learn. I learned a lot about team work, dedication, and drive as a nurse. It was a great experience. The hardest part of the job for me wasn't so much the job itself, but the balance. At the time I was a new nurse and a new mom, and being there long hours took a lot of time away from that.However, I am thankful for that experience and the opportunity there, working under the management and coworkers I worked alongside definitely taught me a lot.
Continued Learning, Teamwork, Potential for growth
Collections Team Lead/Patient Accounts Specialist (Current Employee) – Petersburg, VA – April 30, 2015
Southside Regional had a good work environment. The employees were recognized by their peers for jobs well done. However the pay could have been better if an employee had been loyal to stay for over 5 years which this hospital had a lot of.
I have been Privileged to work at SRMC for almost 10 years
Contract Manager (Current Employee) – Petersburg, VA – April 28, 2015
I would stay until I retire but our Business Office is closing and becoming a central office in PA. I have learend so much at SRMC I love the people in the comunity that we service. Being able to do so many different things within our office gave me great people skills and also a lot of understanding on insurance and how a Hospital runs. I was promoted in 2012 to Contract Manager and I take my Job very serious. The most enjoyable part of being at SRMC is the people, being able to laugh everyday. The hardest part is having to leave my SRMC family, but i am ready to start a new chapter in my life..
Telemetry Surveillance Unit Clerk/Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Petersburg, VA – March 21, 2015

Staff always ready to help with any assignment. Hardest part of job was changing shifts such chaos. The most enjoyable part of the job is saving lives.
Technician (Current Employee) – Petersburg, VA – March 8, 2015
Southside Regional is a great place to work if you plan on staying in the area or never plan on leaving the community. The place itself is nice and full of wonderful patients. The pay and benefits are just enough to get by and advancement for job skills especially in other areas outside of nursing are non-existent. There are a great deal of people who wear many big hats but not enough attention is paid to the little people who hold them up.
