Health Information Clerk (Former Employee) – Morgan City, LA – January 2, 2018
My typical day at the office were to do my duties as stated. when we had some down time we made our way to conversate with our coworkers and office manager. we were able to have lunch at our desk if we didn't want to leave the building. Ive learned something different with the position, that I've never done, although I was already employed for another company, they gave me the opportunity and a chance to work in the department, considering I didn't have records experience. The hardest part about my position was the filing room. I then was able to grasp onto it and flew from there. The most enjoyable part of my job was my coworkers and office manager. Everyone welcomed me, helped in any way and they made me feel as part of the office family.
Supervisor and office manager were very understanding to any needs when needed
Fast paced facility (when working) and huge variety of challenges and differences in patient care
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Current Employee) – Morgan City, LA – October 13, 2017
I enjoyed working in my position as a PRN floor nurse. I was scheduled full time hours, however due to hospital census, I averaged only 36-48 hours per pay period of 2 weeks, which is the main reason for leaving. Hours are not guaranteed even for full time employees.
Enjoy coworkers and variety in nursing skills used
Busy and fastpaced healthcare in a hospital setting.

I would start by rounding on patients, performing shift head to toe assessment, and introducing myself as the nurse for that shift, and obtain vital signs. I would administer medications as ordered at designated times. Assist patients with ambulating and making the patient comfortable. Starting and discontinuing IV's. Administering injections. Discharging patients. I learned various skills, time management, prioritizing tasks. Mangement was great during the time I worked there. The hardest part of the job was having sometimes 7 patients and also trying to assist my fellow nurses when the unit was busy. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking care of new mothers and babies after delivery.
Taking care of mother and babies during this joyful time.
LPN, Emergency Department (Former Employee) – Morgan City, LA – December 17, 2015
Very busy Emergency Department . Had a very good team to work with on a nightly basis . Hardest part of the job is always losing someone . The most enjoyable part is being able to treat a patient and send them home happy !!!
Registration Clerk (Former Employee) – Morgan City, LA – September 14, 2015
Very pleasurable helping those in need; however somewhat competitive when it comes to making people pay medical bills which I know most be done. We had a quota to make and co-workers were a best somewhat rude to patients when they couldn't pay copays wasn't what I expected from hospital staff. My supervisor was new and didn't really know much about the operations of the department yet was very nice and approachable. I learned much about insurance lingo and medical terminology. Most enjoyable part of my job was helping patients navigate the insurance companies
Helping patients, learn about the medical industry
extremly competive when it comes to patients paying bills

Teche is a great place to work part-time for students, who can only work weekends or night-shifts. Management in the Registration department is fair, easy to get along with, and makes an effort to work around life events! The hardest part of the job is pleasing all "customers or patients."

I have only been working here for a short amount of time but management is great and it is a great and positive environment all around. The company not only takes superior care of patients but employees as well.

Good people when I was there. There is a VERY high turnover due to bad management. Some departments are great to work in but others suck these days because the long time managers have all left. The facility changes administrators every few years and they all make promises they will not keep. They recruit doctors some good and some terrible and as soon as the contract is over the doctor leaves and moves elsewhere to practice. The administrations are not friendly to physicians, nurses or staff. Their only concern is to cut as much as possible so their numbers look good and they can receive a larger bonus. There was one administrator who made awesome changes that resulted in the hospital making money for the first time in nine years. This occurred after his first month on the job. After he was terminated for his own private indiscretions the next administrator undid all the positive changes and ran the hospital into the ground within just a few months. Little job security here because many departments have been taken over by management companies resulting in loss jobs for many loyal and longtime employees.
micromanaging break times, phone usage, cameras everywhere in facility

I liked the spontaneous of working in registration never knowing if it was going to be the women services or 6th floor med calling to admit or need new stickers. The registration always got the job done.

My typical day is really not a typical day at work because something is always changing . Dealing with sick patients is not always the most easiest job. My Co-workers are ok for the most part, but never trust any of your dear workers that are always trying get you in trouble . For the most part, my day is not that hectic, actually very interesting
