Echo lab in transition
Cardiac Sonographer (Former Employee), Eureka, CAMarch 29, 2014
Pros: independence of operation, overtime earnings opportunity, courtesy and pleasantness of clinical staff, nurses and administrators..
Cons: lack of presence, availability, support, self-interested according to budget requirements, unrealistic hr and department manager, my being used as a pawn, hiring a new-grad trainee for the work-load and responsibilities expected, low-paid first-time intern
Disappointed at how my new-grad position was mismanaged. I learned how to run the entire workings of an echo cardiology lab, from in-coming interdepartmental calls for scheduling, to performing all cardiac sonography examinations while carrying a pager-on-call, responsible for covering the out-patient schedule, while having to respond to calls for TEE – more... surgery, emergency room and ICU and then to complete the day, usually after hours to perform any in-patient echo requisitions for cardiologists to read the following day, when patients were not readily available according to dinner and bathing and visitation and sleeping time.
The only person available to train me was a traveling tech who had no interest in my obtaining the necessary hands-on training that I was assured. He was written up for non-compliance through rude, abrupt and pushy behaviour with patients and nurses and nurse administrators, although he provided everything required to keep the cardiologists happy with his work. I was terminated just before my 30 days of probation, just before my union membership would have been granted, within a week after

The hardest part of my job was lack of support and communication from the manager, the traveling tech and the back-up tech, who also made himself unavailable, as he had been turned down after applying for the full-time position that I had been hired for. The hardest task was that I was expected to take on the full-time responsibilities of the entire schedule, to run the entire workings of the echo lab as the solo employee in my capacity of newly graduated and first-time intern clinical trainee cardiac sonographer, after this traveler was terminated within three weeks when the manager took leave for a week with voicemail and cell phone completely unavailable to take calls, or even messages.
The most enjoyable part of the job was having all the exposure to and learning all the aspects required to keep an echo lab running. I enjoyed the opportunity I was given and I enjoyed the input and encouragement from the two cardiologists I worked with that spent most time in the hospital and the nurses and even the traveler tech., when he was not overly stressed out from trying to complete his schedule before the end of a normal work-day. Even the back-up tech. came in to bail me out and help me during the final weekend I was there alone, asking for help when my moving truck arrived with the rest of my belongings to settle in the area and the following day the parting comment I received from the manager was that I had made a heroic attempt and that I was so close to being able to keep things running alone, which was re-iterated by the back-up tech.! – less

would not recommend working there
Clerk (Former Employee), Tucson, AZFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: the staff i personally worked with was great, most were great team players
Cons: overworked and way under staffed patient to nurse/tech ratio, not enough pay for work you do and staff is way under appreciated for all their hard work
I loved working there the first couple of years but patient to tech ratio kept increasing making it a patient safety issue. Management isn't there to monitor during shift and felt that doing my best was never good enough when it came to evaluations. Some of the Nurses are very "clicky" with management and if they didn't like you, it was reflected. Outside – more... of work, it is sad to hear people you know who don't know you worked there put the Hospital down, stating that the care has drastically decreased and they refused to go to that hospital anymore. Makes you wonder.
the most enjoyable part of my job was that Nobody wanted the position so I was able to make good money because of all the overtime I was able to get – less

Central Registration and Patient Companion (Former Employee), Nashua, NHSeptember 10, 2013
Pros: having someone tell me how much i helped them
Cons: spending a lot of time with patients and they passed on
It was a wonderful place to work. I learned a lot of medical terminology, and a lot of medical administration, billing and collections. Learning was a daily part of the job, and I grew so much. I liked the management staff and my co-workers. It could be stressful at times like any job can be when working with the public, but I loved what I was doing. – more... I got a great deal of satisfaction when I was working with patients, both in an administrative capacity, as well as one on one when I was in the Patient Companion Role. – less

I enjoy Travel Nursing....
Trustaff, Inc. (Former Employee), Tucson, AZAugust 24, 2013
Pros: job satisfaction: hearing from your patients that you did an excellent job.
Cons: i often take short lunch breaks and tend to the needs of my patients.
A typical day at work started with shift report and then I would introduce myself to each of my patients; ask if they needed any thing. If they needed pain medication I would address that need immediately. Med pass at 9PM would shortly follow with assessments performed as each patient received their medication.

I would meet my coworkers at the time – more... clock prior to start of shift change.
The hardest part of my job is finding a patient unconscious and needing to perform CPR on that patient.
The most enjoyable part of my job is hearing from my patient that they enjoyed me being their nurse and that I did an excellent job.
I would tell them that it was my honor taking care of them and that I was just doing my job.

Management has their hands tied. They have criteria that needs to be met by JACHO; paperwork that needs to be correctly performed by each individual nurse...and documented per critical event. I try to understand their role and cope with their responsibilities. – less
