Stressful, yet, Rewarding Workplace
Health Unit Coordinator (Current Employee) – Galveston, TX – November 14, 2017
During my work day I typically make rounds on patients, any and all clerical work, including answering phones and running errands.
I have learned many different medical terms. Being in the medical field has taught me that you should treat everyone as with respect and as if they were you family.
Management was poor, however, and was not very receptive to concerns made by the employees. Several employees have left due to these concerns. I was a chairman of a Committee that was supposed help shape the department. However, not much was accomplished in the 2 years that I was a part of the committee due to management push back.
The hardest part of my job was seeing different patients come in for severe trauma, death or assaults. Especially young children.
The best thing that I loved about my job was getting to meet new people. Getting to be a part of possibly helping someone with a smile or kind word. It's kept me grounded and humble.
