Was premiere Hospital in Pensacola until corporate took control.
RN x > 25 years (Former Employee), PensacolaOctober 20, 2014
Pros: fair rate of pay, benifits
Cons: now focus is on money not quality
West Florida hospital was a place I was very honored to represent until HCA corporate personnel took over and stopped caring about employees, promoted financial gain only and most of all decreased quality care to pt's.
I had worked at West Florida Hospital for greater than 25 years as an RN.
I trust my former colleagues but as I have many have left – more... due to conflicting ethical issues with money centered corporate personnel . – less

Independent department culture in case management, autonomy and encouraged to "think outside the box" atmosphere with good managerial support.
RN CASE MANAGER (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLOctober 15, 2014
Pros: independence and autonomy
Cons: benefit cuts and small merit increases
I really enjoyed the culture of my case management department, case managers met daily for lunch for roundtable discussions that helped each other to find solutions to any difficult discharge plans they may have been having. It also gave us opportunities to bond our team and foster a great inter department cohesiveness I have not found anywhere else. – more... Wonderful place to work. – less

Satisfying, Rewarding, Mental Health Nursing
RN - Charge Nurse (Current Employee), Pensacola, FLMarch 25, 2014
Each day I check charts, do assessments, take vitals, pass medications, and any other necessary medical interventions. I also provide group therapy time for my psych patients. Since I started, I have acquired leadership skills by becoming charge nurse. I get along well with management and feel they are constantly involved in improving our programs. – more... My co-workers and I all work well together, each completing the tasks we are assigned while still offering assistance to the others as needed. The hardest part of my job is seeing the end-stage dementia patients pass away. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the fast recovery of mentally unstable patients. – less

Med-Surg Hospital bedside nursing
Hospital Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLMarch 7, 2014
Pros: allow new nurses to get experience.
Cons: you are just a body; just another nurse.... get the job done. you can be replaced, constant influx of new nurses, do not strive to keep their nurses.
Extremely stressful. Short on nursing support. Nursing support and nurses stretched too thin. Some wonderful groups of nurses that often have to lean on each other to get through a tough job.

Film Librarian (Current Employee), Pensacola, FLJuly 24, 2013
I like working at WFH because it allows me to use my skills at my
fullest potential. My days begin early with pulling files and end with
either helping patients acquire their records or providing records as
requested per HIPPA Policy.I feel as though I am well trained for my
job and that management keeps me informed of policy changes and
new procedures – more... regarding my present position as Film Librarian. – less

To obtain a postition as a Certified Medical Assistant in a Medical Facility.
Full Time 2007- 2012 / PRN 2012 - Present (Current Employee), Pensacola, FLJuly 17, 2013
Pros: love being a medical assistant and caring for patients.
Cons: different work ethics among other co-workers
Arrive at work at 0645 to calibrate our medical machines for the day.and to open up in time at 0700. In my typical day patients start arriving for their physicals which include: assist to check in emergency patients in first aid and work related injuries. Doing complete physicals of audiograms, pulmonary function testing, height, weight, temperatures, – more... blood pressures, eye exams, cholestech screenings, EKG's, faxing reports to hospital doctors, venipuncture, respiratory fit testing, spirometry, drug testing, breath alcohol testing, locate pateints charts, gather proper paperwork for physicals,complete patient accounts on computer and scheduling and enter patients for return visit if needed, month end account status, and many other duties. Management has always been a very positive and supportive experience working at WFH. Co-workers are great. However, sometimes its difficult to me to see when a patient comes into our clinic that others don't rush to their needs as I do. I have always thought even if its not my job requirement I have always gone beyond the call of duty to help out where ever I am needed no matter if that was not my paricular job description or not, but others don't view customer satisfaction the way I view it, this to me would have to be the hardest part of my job. The most enjoyable of my job is coming into work every day and giving my all to my patients and others that I work side by side with. I have been a medical assistant since 2001 and being a medical assistant I think has been my calling to complete my job and be satisfied by the end of the day that I had given my all and to have someone say, yes she Connie made a difference today in my life and the lives of others. – less
