Quiet, Challenging Environment
Records Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 23, 2014
Pros: each day was different, challenging and rewarding.
Cons: no co-workers to talk to.
For a brief period, I worked for the University of Chicago Hospitals in the Medical Records department. I had a list of patient files I was asked to retrieve that day. They were typically easy to find and the staff was glad to get them. Occaisionally I had to hunt down a file, but that just allowed me to use my detective skills.

Simply OK
Staff Nurse (Current Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 5, 2014
Overall an average place to work. Work with other great nurses, however it is difficult to find a manager that actually supports their staff. The hospital is rarely staffed appropriately. The training is however excellent. I learned a lot working here!
