Hospital Volunteer (Current Employee) – West Hills, CA – December 29, 2015
I learned how to get all the tasks that needed to be done in a day finished in a fashionable order. I start by ,making sure the IV kits were filled then going around to patient rooms, go to ER waiting room. My co workers are so kind they are always doing their job with a smile and work so hard at what they do. The hardest part of the job was making sure we had the correct amount of items in the room, watching to make sure they never ran out. Everything was so enjoyable from beginning to end.

Adult Intensive Care Unit, Clinical Nurse II (Former Employee) – West Hills, CA – April 15, 2015
This was my first job where there was no ICU intensivist; therefore it was a great challenge to advocate for your patients. I had to call one MD to the next to get anything done, and things aren't done in a timely fashion. It was a very busy unit, and the lack of resources such as lift team and/or CNA made it very difficult to find help when you need it. All the RNs are busy with their own patients and RN end up getting swapped and burn-out. Lack of team cohesion made it hard to work there too.
Good ICU manager
No ICU intensivist, Lack of team cohesion, under staff, overworked
Administrative Assistant, Student Volunteer (Former Employee) – West Hills, CA – April 11, 2015
I was a student volunteer and my job consisted of organizing and creating patient charts, creating medical bracelets, accurately filing and keeping track of patient documentation, make copies. Management and co-workers were amazing, helped in any way as possible. The most enjoyable part of my job was being fast and accurate in my job.
Facilities Manager (Former Employee) – West Hills, CA – March 4, 2015
I only learned not what to do in this organization. No culture, no compassion for employees. No room for advancement. I would rather not comment any more but there is a requirement to keep writing more.
Accounts Payable/Payroll Coordinator (Former Employee) – West Hills, CA – November 18, 2014
I really enjoyed working for West Hills Hospital. I was born in this hospital and delivered my own son in this hospital so it held a very special place in my heart. I enjoyed working in the Finance department but unfortunately my job migrated to Utah, forcing me to look for another job.
Helping patients is the most rewarding. Management is not at all on your side, it is all about money. The hardest part of my job was receiving the dr.s orders from the nursing staff in a timely manner.
Caring for people is what nursing is all about. I learned to be patient and listen because listening makes a difference in a person's situation. I wouldn't comment on anything else. thank you for the opportunity.
