RN (Former Employee) – 5 north and 3 Center At old hospital – October 8, 2016
Working at UHC was a good learning experience and a good stepping stone. They paid my tuition for my Masters degree. I am thankful for that. I learned telemetry and how to manage my time effectively. RNs are treated as "scut workers" by some managers. If you aren't their favorite you can just quit now. You get the worst patients and the worst schedule if you don't kiss butt -- with some of them. Pay is good. Managers are not - from the top down. Always working short handed. Always being pulled to another floor. Switched from one team of patients to another.
Medical Transcriptionist/Editor (Current Employee) – Bridgeport, WV – September 20, 2016
A typical work day for working at UHC would be logging in and editing reports that the doctors dictated in voice recognition. Lots of interesting words come into reports when a doctor is dictating using voice recognition so transcriptionist have to go in and clean up the reports. I have been doing this type of work for 30 years and I have learned so much and continue to learn whether it be new terminology, the latest cancer treatments or new software to help us do our jobs more efficiently. I have had a great experience working for UHC. My coworkers who have been there long than me are always very supportive and willing to help in any way. The most enjoyable part of my job is really just working with good people and being part of a team who knows how to work together and help each other!
Surgical OR Scrub Tech (Former Employee) – Bridgeport, WV – December 30, 2015
Working in the medical field is where my passion sits. I love knowing that my knowledge has grown. Working as a surgical tech the amount of knowledge about the human body and the anatomy grew tremendously. I was able to expand and grow as a provider and expand my skillset to a higher level.
On a typical day, I register patients for express test and diagnostic tests. I add, and verify insurance and insurance claims as well as workers compensation claims. I take newly admitted patients to the proper floors. I love my co-workers and the team moral when working in the emergency department.
During my time at UHC (United Hospital Center) I found the people and quality of service towards the patients very excellent to say the least. There was virtually no problems I could find wrong while employed here, and In all honesty I quite enjoyed my time at this hospital. My co-workers where very well trained and good at their jobs, not to mention the great hours an time spent servicing the wonderful patients.
My shift was 3pm-11pm and I always hit the floor running. I was a very busy cardiac unit. I learned many new procedures and techniques through the physicians and my co-workers. The atmosphere was always positive and enforced you to grow as an RN. The work was always hard and time management was always a struggle. I loved going to work knowing that I would always learn and that I could make a difference in the patients' lives.
I was given the opportunity to learn as I accomplished goals I set for myself. I had a great mentor.
Manager (Former Employee) – Clarksburg, WV – January 28, 2015
My supervisor knew I was eager to prove myself and grow into a bigger and better position. I was mentored and allowed to use my talents and skills as I worked on projects and developed responsibilities for myself beyond my original scope of work. I enjoyed my time at UHC for that very reason.
I learned a lot while there.
There is only so far you can go in that setting when you are not clinical.
We worked well as a team and helped when help was needed. I learned that to get advantages out of your job you get what you put in it. I moved from a CNA to recreational programs on the weekends. I love interacting with my coworkers and patients. The hardest part of the job would be when we don't have enough coverage. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the satisfaction I get out of helping others, and knowing that I make a difference.
