What they say in orientation is not what you get
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), fairhope, alMay 10, 2014
Pros: pays more than other hospital, may get a free turkey
Cons: little support, high acuity with high ratio, little responsibility/accountability
I can only speak about the floor. A typical day, on a tele floor, pick up five or six patients (mixture of total care, cardiac drips, heart caths, 1:1's, surgeries), discharge 4, and admit 4. Little help from team leader. The team leader is too busy managing the floor. No help from Director. Have lunch around 2-3 or not at all. Most coworkers and unit – more... clerk work great together. The employees with very bad attitudes linger forever with little or no disciplinary action. They are the cause of the good workers leaving, but management continues to do nothing. Wonderful staff, but cannot shine to their true capability due to poor management. No feeling of a team from management. Little to no appreciation. Unfortunately, the dysfunction continues to upper management. Human Resources is pro-management, regardless of complaint. If you are a new grad in need of experience, this is a great place to start. The nurses are wonderful at training and very nice. However, this would not be the place to consider moving up in your nursing career. – less

An opportunity to become familiar with patient care and all aspects of medicine
EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT PATIENT CARE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee), Fairhope, ALNovember 14, 2013
Being a Patient Care Technician (PCT) at Thomas Hospital Emergency Department was an invaluable experience as it exposed me to a wide variety of illness and the acute medical management of these. A typical day consisted of obtaining vital signs, phlebotomy, performing electrocardiograms, mobilizing patients around the unit, putting orders in the computer – more... and charting on performed tasks. My fellow PCTs and I were also responsible for cleaning and stocking the patient rooms. The knowledge gained from this experience is vast, but the take home point is not to be timid when treating patients when they are severely ill. I gained a sense of comfortableness when communicating and interacting with all types of individuals. The hardest part was having to pick up slack of co-workers when they were not as motivated to get housekeeping jobs done. The most enjoyable part was being able to play an active part in the acute care of extremely ill patients. – less

High stress due to micromanaged, no breaks, lunch break available according to patient volume.
Emergency Room Registration Clerk (Former Employee), RegistrationApril 20, 2013
Pros: coworkers in registration dept or emergency room work well together when things get busy.
Cons: high stress, no 15 min breaks, no lunch break if high vol of pts and employees short handed, management is critical and very micromanaged. work schedule not constistant from week to week, discourage use of time off
supervisors show little to no regard of employees opinions, questions regarding constant change in work schedule. Main concern is amount of money collected from copays. Reprimanded for not being able to collect (which is difficult in E.R.) also for not making "good notes" (explaining reasons demographic info or copays not collected) in computer regardless – more... of patients condition. insurance and demographics have to be verified every visit to hospital, regardless if he or she came in day before. – less

First hospital work journey
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee), Fairhope, ALNovember 6, 2012
Pros: twelve hour shifts, benefits, in a field of my career
Cons: sometimes no breaks, short staff sometimes mean extra extra overload
A typical day at work is very busy.My job consists of a very fast paced environment.Working there has allowed me to gain experience in the hospital setting.It has also taught me about working at a fast pace while delivering quality service to my patients.I enjoy my co-workers very much.We have learned to help each other out through a sometimes difficult – more... patient load.The hardest part of my job would have to be running non stop for twelve hours and not being able to break peacefully for thirty minutes.Sometimes the patient acuity level can be an overload because we get mostly confused,and bedridden but we manage to do the best we can.However,before the end of the day my coworkers and my patients always find something that makes my job worthwhile!The enjoyment of knowing I put a smile on someones face always brighten my day. – less
