Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – September 24, 2015
Fast pace work environment with supportive management. Medical surgical unit that offers a wide array of clinical exposure. The unit offers endless amounts of education each day. My co-workers are an integral part of my everyday work. A typical day at work exposed me to patient's with a variety of nursing aspects that allowed me to work with many areas of the healthcare team. The most enjoyable part of my job is being a part of the healthcare team in helping not only the patient but the family members.
Marketing Liaison/Director of Community Outreach (Former Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – August 19, 2015
I would market to different hospitals and nursing homes to try and get their patients to use our facilities in and outpatient services for psych. Hardest part of my job was to get referrals to the programs, but the fun part was the luncheons I would provide to the staff and get to know them on a more personal level.
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – December 27, 2014
Typical day is taking vitals and recording patients data. Everyday learning something new, with wounds, intake an outtake of patients. It was a very multi task job. Co workers (nursing assistance) seemed very lazy. Had to pick up more of the slack others didn't do. Most enjoyable would be constantly helping patients and witnessing them get better
PBX Operator/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – February 17, 2014
Working here in the beginning was great but now it's just blahh. I enjoy answering the phones but when you have inside calls (especially 2nd Floor) constantly calling for the same exact thing it tends to get annoying. There's no communication between the Nurses and tech on the floors. The floors (except ICU) talk to you like you're lower than them....It's not everyone on the units some of the Nurses/Techs are the sweetest people ever! My boss & supervisor are great...I can't complain about them! I also feel like the pay is definitely NOT great for the years put into the organization. Some of the Drs we talk to are the sweetest too! It's not the worst job you can ask for but some people tend to forget that at the end of the day we still bleed the same!
Coworkers are good people to work with. My supervisor and boss are great!
No set schedule, not enough pay, nights and weekends, and confined space
I get report from the night nurse, see my patients, pull my medicine from the OMNIcell, give medicine, do rounding on my patient's every two hours, look and carry out new physician orders, discharge patients, and all of the paperwork that it entails, as well as admitting new patients. At my job, I have learned that I will never stop learning. I have learned how difficult it is to be a nurse and how much responsibility is involved. I have made mistakes and I have learned from them. My coworkers are very helpful and friendly. We all get along great. When we have a spare moment, we all ask how the others are doing and see if they need any help. The hardest part of my job is time management and prioritizing. Something always comes up in the middle of what you are currently doing, and you have to prioritize to see if you should stop what you are doing because the new task is more important, or if you should finish what you are doing because what you are doing is more important. The most enjoyable part about my job is when my patient's are smiling or laughing. It is when I know I have made a difference in their life and in their care. A simple "thank you" from them goes a long way.
RN and Unit co-ordinator (Former Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – January 16, 2014
Atypical day starts with assignment and report and updating unit on meetings, new policies, new equipment coming. I learned to be more confident in myself. I worked along side of management. We worked together as a team. Hardest part of the job was learning to deal with different personalities. The most enjoyable part was the whole experience I received while working there
Nurse Technician (Former Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – January 6, 2013
I was a nurse tech here during nursing school in their ICU. I enjoyed working with everyone and it was a fun and enjoyable place to work. I would assist the nurses with patient care during my daily activities. My co-workers and management were very knowledgeable and willing to help when needed.
Certified Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – July 30, 2012
I love keeping up with the new procedures and equipment for surgery today. The management could use some actual "Surgical Tech" management rather than just RN management positions to help with scheduling, etc... The hardest part is working long hours on call and having 2 small children. the enjoyable part is the relationships you get to build with the doctors on staff, they are always there to help you out when needed.
CST (Former Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – July 27, 2012
excellent group of people to work with, but the hours they expect people to work is not built around family. The hardest part of the job was not knowing what time you are going to be able to leave work on a daily basis even when it wasn't your call or late day. Occasionally is not a problem, but when it happens more often than not, it becomes a problem that brings down morale
