great place to work. No problems with anyone that is worth repeating. If you have issues with people that are worth repeating, one has to wonder; is it really them or do we need to take a look at ones self?
You will form strong bonds to last a lifetime with your co workers as long as you are a good team player. The pay is very low for LVN's and the opportunity for a raise is poor. Management is pretty good. The house supervisors are kind. Some areas are very demanding like step down. I have been able to keep many skills very fresh.
Great cafeteria food, afordable benefits, discounts for uniforms.
This position provided a broad spectrum of care creating a great learning experience.

Communication Clerk (Current Employee) – Texarkana, TX – January 12, 2017
Management isn't great. They will pay for you to go to school in related field but you have to sign a 2-year contract or you will have to pay it all back. You have to give nearly three months in advance for vacation.
ER Registrar (Former Employee) – Texarkana, TX – December 6, 2016
The ER supervisor is VERY unprofessional and very uncaring, she will cause you to hate coming to work. The job itself is wonderful. Meeting new people and helping people in their time of need is great. Coworkers are half wonderful, half unprofessional. It's like a big highschool for the most part.
Learning new skills, helping others
No actual lunch breaks, dealing with the supervisor

Registered nurse in emergency department (Former Employee) – Texarkana, TX – July 18, 2015
Through the seven years working at my last employment was a great place to work (in the beginning). Co-workers worked as a team and management was involved during the first three to four years. The past two years there was high turnover rate and no management, which led to disgruntled employees. This is when I decided to further my education as a family nurse practitioner to make a difference.
able to utilize critical thinking skills especially during emergent situations
no breaks most days due to busy ED or short staffed
A typical day for me was coming in and doing vitals, baths, and helping with meals. I learned a lot about different types of diseases and how to take care of patients after different kinds of surgery. The management was nice, and my coworkers were very helpful. The hardest part of my job was doing 10 to 12 baths everyday. The enjoyable part was the patient and family compliments I have received from my care of their loved ones.

Maintain detail and procedural process to improve accuracy and efficiency. My job was entering codes in the system everyday 10 key. I also managed supplies and inventory for 5 Dr's and made sure that files were input into the EMR system.
A typical day at work consist of printing a daily census and going through each patient checking their insurance information and making sure the demographic were correct. Learned a lot about how important it is to get authorziation for services and learned about proper coding. The hardest part of the job was when others did not do their part and I was left taking up their slack and getting blamed for their mix ups.
