very productive, challenging, and busy hospital inpatient pharmacy.
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – October 19, 2015
One of the nation's top academic medical centers. A great place to work with excellent benefits and supportive management. A typical day is getting and bringing 24hr med supply to all nursing units, refill and maintain pyxis machines, supply all missing, additional and new meds, triage phone calls, manage floor stock on nursing units, order any meds needed, work as a member of a team of co-workers.
I have learned different parts of pharmacy. My first year or so I worked in Distribution department, then IVA and Compounding departments. I was later given the responsibilities of a Floor Technician for the Cardiac and Neurology units. My last year I was in the Stockroom Department managing floor stock on nursing units, refilling and troubleshooting Pyxises, and ordering meds for Ambulatory Clinics and managing all their needs.
I also learned how to work well with all types co-workers, and how to maintain a positive attitude when at times I was surrounded by other than positive. I received confirmation on what a great employee I am.
The hardest part was the pressure put on everyone when co-workers do not show up to work. It is a huge hospital with over 1,000 beds and a lot of demands that need to be done in a timely manner.
The most enjoyable part is working with a great team of Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists, pharmacy Techs, and other hospital staff that have the same goal-to provided the best and most efficient patient care available.
