Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Bedford, OH – July 23, 2014
Pros: free lunches, they work with you if you have a family emergency
Cons: the distance when i needed to get home a t a certain, no major cons.
On a day to day basis, I was responsible for obtaining vitals from patients, administering injections, performing EKGs, assisting customers with any problems they have, scheduling appointments for the patient with their primary care physician. I have learned so much from this position, such as, how to be patient and how to handle difficult situations. – more... The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to interact with the people that came in to the office everyday and having that feeling of helping others. Our office was typically busy everyday, we would see about 30-40 patients per day. – less
Filing, Data entry (Former Employee), Cleveland, OH – July 20, 2014
I loved working at University hospital, I didn't have the opportunity to work with the patients directly but working in the filling room for Pediatric Neurology is amazing seeing what some of the children that were patients go through and are still strong and fighting is a breath taking miracle and working there made me gain so much respect for people – more... younger than me and made me realize that they are much more brave and stronger than i am. – less

Unit Clerk (Current Employee), Augusta, GA – June 25, 2014
Pros: meal tickets (when available)
Cons: unappreciative staff members
The only time this job is very enoyable is when you meet the very few patients that are truly grateful and appreciative of all your help and patience. This job is very demanding and the majority of the time, the other support roles do not provide help nor other assistance when needed. Management overlooks things that can present major problems and are – more... almost always focused on petty or small matters that usually doesn't even concern patient care. – less
Staff Nurse II (Former Employee), Columbia, MO – June 19, 2014
Cons: the cons was that it was over an hour drive from my home
After hire and finish basic University Orientation, you are started on Essentials of Critical Care and you have so many weeks to complete. I typically had 1-2 patients dependent on how critical. After report we review lines and I immediately begin to assess my patients and administer their medications. I notify on call physician if any changes. My supervisors – more... were always available for questioning. They never made you feel bad for asking. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I actually felt like a nurse. I was doing so many new things at once my brain was swelling and I loved it. The hardest part of my job was watching the suffering of the burn patients. My co-workers were amazing. I never worked with a group that never argued and worked together amazingly. You don't normally get that with a bunch of women, or at least I don't. – less
Post Anesthesia Care Unit Staff RN (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – June 18, 2014
I liked my co-workers they are nice people if it wasn't for them I would not have stayed long at University Hospital (UH) I actually liked working with my co-workers. UH say they are a magnet hospital and they are at magnet status but it is all a FRONT! low salary for experience RN and NP low tuition reimbursement rates
Pros: getting to know each patient, displaying how compassionate you are, spending time with your patients who have no family.
Cons: a lot of days you go without a break, dealing with rude employees, employers and family members.
The hardest part of my job has to be getting to know my patient while I'm watching them and making them comfortable to pass away. I worked on the 6th floor of the cancer center...so i interacted with patients who had mild to severe cases of cancer. It was any where from inside one organ in there body to their entire bodies....you just couldn't work – more... in that environment unless you were full of a tremendous amount of compassion. Working there was truly an extraordinary feeling and I enjoyed each and every moment of it. At the end of the day even if each patient I cared for passed away on my shift i would be sad for a short moment because i know that they're in a truly better place. – less
