Most days would be regular days at work, Then you'll have days that will have you running around. Cleaning procedures would have to be done the right way for the safety of our coworkers and patients.Most Coworkers from different areas of the hospital were friendly and respectful.
Occupational Health Clerk (volunteer) (Former Employee) – Melrose Park, IL – May 5, 2015
What I loved the most about this job. Is the way they welcomed me into their hospital as a volunteer. I didn't have any experience as a medical assistant at the time. So, they let me watch what they were doing, and helped me gain some experience.
Small hospital, patient care was excellent, great nursing staff, and nursing supervisor cared about the nurses and patient care:

Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Melrose Park, IL – April 20, 2014
When I would get in I would take a look at what patients were assigned to me. Then I would start my vitals and chart them. I would check and see which patients were completes and who were assigned to have baths in the morning. In between all of that I made sure to answer call lights. Management were friendly and they did let me choose which days I could work. My co-workers were very helpful and they were like extended family we always helped out each other when we could. The hardest part would have to be making sure all patients needs were met especially when you were assigned 15-18 patients a night. The most enjoyable part was being able to help those patients who cannot help themselves.
Great amount of time for brake
Cannot leave building for brake and not much to choose from to eat.
