The patients are the most important part of this job especially in the Bullhead City area. Medical care is lacking and the patients are especially appreciative for the attention and care they are shown. The hardest part of the job is losing a patient, which speaks volumes across the board in the medical field.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – March 12, 2017
This hospital has a trifecta of environments from the elderly, the casino crowd with drugs and alcohol, and the river with lots of traumas. We never know what will come from the door, and we find that it is NEVER just a cough. We discover at least one new undiagnosed cancer a week, and see things that are only learned about in the text books. This hospital keeps me learning on a daily basis, which is such a great experience.
Admitting Clerk (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – February 25, 2017
Was stroked for 2 1/2 months for an admitting job. admitting Supervisor would never return calls and keep promises and when contacting the so called CEO, was talked to like a homeless person!!!! How they get by with this treatment is a mystery, but they do and it's sad and unfair!
Work here and you will need therapy to block it out.
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – December 18, 2016
I worked in Radiology for many years. In that time I have seen management and techs come and go. Things have only gotten worse. The favoritism is high in this dept. Between not being able to trust your supervisor with a concerns you are having because they are either married to the problem, or part of the problem themselves. You literally have no one to turn to. The equipment is bad and not taken care of well at all. Techs are over worked from not having help. Human Resources might as well not even be there. You can't go to them with concerns you have. Health care is just not good there. So sad I wasted a big part of my time there. I feel the need to warn others. If you are reading this run do not look back do not apply.
Registrar (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – April 11, 2016
One of the worst places I've ever worked. Management is horrible and cannot be trusted. HR doesn't do anything about problems employees are having either. Not only that, but you work your butt off for minimal pay.. And too many people sit around and don't do their job because they're friends with managers and the people in HR. They think they're all that when they're nothing.. Hello you work at a hospital in BHC! Last, the healthcare sucks, you'd think you'd get awesome benefits but they're horrible.
Retail Cashier/Food service worker (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – February 12, 2016
WARMC spends wasteful dollars in false advertisement. A three day long new hire orientation, followed by monthly 'morale' videos and employee surveys only to fall short on every promise and expectation. A real disappoint. I would not recommend this employer. It was a poor experience.
Director, Risk Management Services (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – September 24, 2015
I worked at WARMC for 5 years as Director of Risk Management and then the Interim Chief Quality Officer. During this time I had wonderful mentors and I learned much. One of the greatest perks of these positions was my co-workers. I interacted daily with all levels of staff from the CEO to the maintenance staff. These were wonderful people willing to share and learn.
Supportive learning environment
Upper management did not always appear to be supportive of staff
Director, Risk Management Services (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – September 1, 2015
I loved my position of Director of Risk Management. A typical day included everything from the legal aspects of healthcare to dealing with disgruntled patients & families.
Early on in my position the management was very supportive & I learned much. The co-workers were good for the most part. Because I chose to work more than an hour from home, I frequently stayed overnight in a hotel or with a friend. Being away from home became the most difficult part of the job.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Healthcare Regulations as well as being a patient advocate.
pharm tech (Former Employee) – Bullhead – May 12, 2015
First, only some of the worst doctors work here,the rest are in Vegas or Havasu. I've been a pharmacy technician for over 10 yrs and was hired here. Within One week I saw computer systems failing, record keeping from 15 yrs ago, and a Human resources director managing pharmacy...... Really???? Stay away if you already have a stable job, I thought I was moving up by doing this, now, just stuck because I didn't fit in the "clique" I guess.
small rural hospital where I felt like part of a familyu
Front Desk Clerk/Appointment Scheduler (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – May 5, 2015
I worked in several different departments and always felt as part of the whole hospital "family" working here. I learned flexibility, accounting and record keeping. Health care regulations and information. I worked in the Emergency Room Patient Admitting as well, and the true emergency situations were the hardest part to be involved in. I had co workers who are still friends.
Education, Insurance Benefits, personal support and friendship
Data Entry and Phones (Former Employee) – Bullhead City, AZ – January 8, 2015
Typical day in medical records was patient chart analyzing, filing and answering patient calls. Learned new job requirements in the medical field. Co-workers where always helpful. Hardest part of job was learning medical field but in the long run quite educational and enjoyable.
