Patient Account Representative (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – March 28, 2017
Patient Financial Services can be challenging from a patience and customer interaction standpoint, but is a great place to learn the in's and out's of healthcare, including how insurances and law offices interact with hospitals.
Unity Secretary (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – April 18, 2017
Most employees get along like family, you don't mind coming to work nice attitudes sometimes you have a stressful day that is normal on any job. Sometimes you will deal with mean spirited Physicians but that is every now and then.
often get bucks or recognition
you can only be late so many times before a write up
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – November 10, 2016
Since I have been working at Touro I have learned a lot in the medical field. My coworkers have encouraged me to further my education in Nursing. Overall it is a nice and joyous place to work, but the pay isn't very good.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – August 29, 2016
Before Hurricane Katrina Touro was the place to work employees were appreciated and it showed it was a nice and friendly place to work after New management took over it became unbearable I used to love going to work however after that soon changed and my only motivation was a pay check sad but true if you do land a job there please keep a work based relationship only!!
Escort patients (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – July 27, 2016
I would clock in and than log in using the phone. I would spend my day being patients around the hospital for varies of test or procedures. In the evening I would discharge baby and mom and other patients that are going home.
Medical Transcriptionist (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – January 29, 2016
Typical day is very busy, constant transcribing and answering the phone. I actually learned more from Memorial Medical Center than Touro. Management to follow the guidelines of "do as I say not as I do." Co-workers are great, everyone helps everyone. The hardest part of the job is having a manager who does not communicate with her employees and who is hardly ever at work. The most enjoyable part of the work is working with my co-workers. They are great and we keep everything running smoothly without the help of your manager.
Staff RN (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – September 7, 2015
I enjoyed all the jobs I have had at Touro; both as a med-tech in Chemistry and Blood Bank and as a nurse on Post-Partum. Most recently,as a nurse, I loved my schedule--6 nights on, 8 nights off. Pay was good and overtime was allowed. My boss was very considerate of family problems. During the time my husband was dying and when my daughter was pregnant (4 term deliveries, 1 fetal demise at 22 weeks, and one at 33 weeks with bed-rest and hospitalization for several weeks prior to delivery),she helped rearrange my schedule so I could take care of them.
As a nurse:great boss and fellow workers. Good pay.
Computer charting; for me (an old-timer) paper charting was much faster
Surgical Technologist (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – August 2, 2015
With 14 operating rooms Touro stays busy.Staff works together to maintain a safe and fast paced work environment to ensure maximum case load and minimum turn over time. Doctors and staff are friendly and work hard. Management tries to accommodate staff and doctors with any needs that have to be met. Call is equally shared and not too demanding.
