Pros: busy and interesting learning environment
I had opportunity to learn different procedures in the general pediatric unit. The nurses explained differences in the procedures as well as the equipment used for pediatric patients versus the adults. This was very helpful. There were 4 wings (A-D) for different pediatric patients according to the specialty. The play rooms were very fascinating. I – more... also had an opportunity to take care of patients in the pediatric ER. It was a very busy day. I loved the triage and learned things such as migraine protocol. – less

Transplant Coordinator Assistant (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDDecember 12, 2013
In the morning I would come in check my email/voicemail messages/fax machines and promptly respond. I would then grab the patients charts that I am actively working on and enter pertinant information in out data system and contact the patient if needed. During my tenure in this position, I learned a lot about kidney disease as well as the transplantation – more... process. Everyone that I worked with at UMMC were great, from some of the best transplant surgeons to the security officers. The hardest part about leaving my job is that I will no longer be connected to the patients I worked closely with. The most enjoyable and treasured moments of the transplant department is when my patients were placed on the UNOS list and when they received their organ. – less

patient service representative (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDAugust 28, 2013
Pros: you are noticed cards, awards, gift cards
Cons: short lunch breaks
A typical day at UMMS is very busy with patients,vistors & medical staff.From time to time the patients check in until they leave.A days work is consistantly involved around my patients and their vistors; whether its obtaining,demographics information or guiding visitors in the right direction.Life at umms is amazing.Throughout my years at umms I have – more... learned how to register and admit patients,collect and verify insurance info and copays,I have also trained many of the new staff that will soon follow my footsteps to success.At UMMS PAS dept mangement is great.Our management team puts fourth effort to see that their employees have what is needed to be successful.There is also room for development and growth and most importantly we grow as a team.I also have wonderful peers who work as a team to get the job done.My teammates are awesome when it come to pulling together to make sure no one falls short on their work.The hardest part of the job is leaving my patients in the hospital when my shift is over knowing I cant assist.Seperation from my patients is hard,because of my compassion towards them.The most enjoyable part of my job is helping others. – less

MD United States (Current Employee), TransplantAugust 23, 2013
At UMMS you gain a wealth of skills and knowledge that will surely take you to your highest. From deescalating conflict to managing patients in need of a higher level of care and everything in between, your skills and care management grow intensively. It is a safe, patient friendly center that provides not only patients but family a warm environment. – more... Management on my unit has changed since I've been there( in 2 years) but you can definitely tell the difference in styles. The hardest part of the job would be working short staffed but is manageable. The most enjoyable would be being able to take care of different patients with multiple acute diagnoses ensuring your learning experience. – less
