Staff Nurse (Current Employee), Houston, TX – March 19, 2013
The patient ratio of nurse's and PCA's (patient clinical assistant) is not good. To achieve the very Good score's we got as a hospital is to give more than an extra mile, extra, extra. Do not get me wrong, the place is good over-all as it is Christ centered. Everything flows from there, making my hardest task a very rewarding one.

Interpreter/Translator (contract) (Former Employee), Houston, TX – August 2, 2012
Pros: diversity, seriousness, professionalism, excellence in all services, teamwork
Cons: that i was unable to be hired full time.
The two contracts that I had with The Methodist Hospital were quite exciting. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet people from many other countries and help them understand and receive the care that TMH is famous for. I learned that some days can be hecktic and some quite peaceful; that it can be very satisfying to help someone receive the help they need – more... even in the midst of a difficult or terminal situation. Working together as a team is always a positive aspect of this workplace. The hardest part of this is Interpreting for the doctors in the case of the patient dying. The best is to see LEPs (Limited English Person) who are truly grateful for the help and advice they have received. – less
