Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – South Carolina – May 2, 2017
Triaging patients, Learned about different medical procedures, management team needs to improve, workplace is great because of the people, the hardest part is the major work load, and enjoyable is the lives you touch.
The hospital has changed a lot since I started. High nurse to patient ratio. A PCU nurse can take 7 patients. Non-clinical staff don't do their jobs well. A lot of floor drama. You will learn a lot but you will never sit down. Travel nurses rarely complete their assignments here because of a horrible culture. Just commute. You'll thank yourself later.
I chose to work on medsurg floor (3 west) at TRMC because it would make me "grow up" and learn a lot. So yeah, I had to learn a lot and grow up quick because staffing SUCKS and you typically have 7 patients per shift every shift all of which are "stable" but very sick. My coworkers were all awesome but we are all so overworked it's hard to even help each other out through the shifts. Management of the floor and hospital as a whole needs a reality check- you can't keep nurses and staff by not giving a flying hoot about them. Don't expect to be able to have a nice family life working here!

HUMAN RESOURCE INTERN (Former Employee) – Orangeburg, SC – January 31, 2017
Very pleasant atmosphere to work in. I learned to work in a human resources office proficiently. The hardest part of the job was dealing with irate employees but I would still serve them in a professional manner.
My time at the TRMC was a great learning experience that I wouldn't give back for nothing in the world my typical day was finding out what my task were and then getting to work right away filling medication carts with the those meds requested by the different floors and patient specific bins. Along with checking in ordered drugs that were delivered by carrier on a daily basis.The hardest part of my job was saying goodbye to the patients when they go home after being in the hospital for an extended period of time I see them as family I believe in showing kindness because it could have easily been me. i really enjoyed my time at TRMC especially the staff in the Pharmacy(inpatient&retail).
Manager (Current Employee) – Orangeburg, SC – April 16, 2016
It is so very sad that this hospital has consistently had unqualified management. What will it take for new leadership to come in to improve this much need hospital. Losing money, poor patient care and just respect for the staff. I feel so very sorry for this community. Please get present leadership out!!!

Patient Service Clerk (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – November 25, 2015
Working a Regional is very challenging. One day is never the same. I have learned a lot working here. From new procedures, update on new medicines, test being performed and the constant continuing education. I really enjoy my management team. We all work in a collaborative effort in making sure the needs of our patients and staff are meet. Hardest of part of my job is watching a family hurt due to life circumstances. The most enjoyable part of my job is the consistency and the professional communication and standards each of hold to form a unit. On top of that watching to see my patients go home.
discounts on foods, self-scheduling, better opportunities
As the Physician Liaison I enjoy the challenge of working in all of the service line areas. The Directors of each of the service lines are some of the best and some of the most passionate about their services that I have come across.
Making sure work area is set up, cashiers box, drinks are available,.different selection of foods are prepared and ready for serving, Co-worker and manager were easy to get alone with. Meeting new face everyday that dine in cafeteria.
ER is a stressful environment, but managements was always available to help. She even pulled night shifts to relieve stress. Besides job responsibilities, had opportunities to help patients relax. Limited contact with coworkers due to being a large area for working.
Excellent management and acceptable compensation.
Hard to take breaks, but management worked for us to take a break. Hard to get to know coworkers.
ER Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Orangeburg, SC – August 19, 2015
Great place to work. Seen and learned a lot as a new graduate. They offered a great 6 month orientation and many in-house training/certifications by their own physicians and nursing staff. They also promote sending staff back to school.
I worked as a PBX operator. I loved the position but not the drama wit the co workers. I left the job as I move to a new state with my husband for a family emergency. I would have remained at the hospital had we not moved. It was a good job of just answering phones and directing calls.
I was a intern here for only a month, but within that month I grew to love working there. I was able to get great hands on experience in all aspects of working at a retail pharmacy. The people were nothing short of amazing and very helpful during my program there. Each week I learned something new, from filling prescriptions, inputting patient data, refill orders, to directly working with the customers at the front desk. The managers and pharmacist were always more than happy to help and answer any questions that I may have had. The most enjoyable part of the job was working directly with the customers and I can honestly say the hardest part about the job was leaving.
