Support Services Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Whittier, CA – January 30, 2017
It has been a great learning experience working in the healthcare industry. I have had 1st hand relation with the surveys that are here during JC. I am a troubleshooter for the facility and corporate. I represent the Support Service Team and provide efficient customer service to both the staff and incoming calls from vendors to sales to patients. I have transformed out accounts payable and permits to electronic version for better filing and back up. I manage the transportation department with drivers that are scheduled to pick up our out patient procedures and manager their vans. I manage 8 engineers for request on site, 2 MOB'S and 8 women's clinics. I assist the director and can perform his tasks and present New Hire Orientation powerpoint focusing on safety. Support Services entails a wide area of needs for the best of our facility. I am seeking management position to perform my knowledge obtained with my MBA.
Healthcare, close to home
I am capped out of my position. I have been told by many that i am ready to lead.
I enjoyed going to work, it was very productive and learned a lot of other jobs in different departments.

REGISTERED NURSE (Current Employee) – Whittier Hospital Medical Center – October 9, 2015
The nursing staff is given extenuating responsibilities that go beyond unsafe. Clinical Managers are incompetent and the culture of safety is compromised by administrative "constraints" on staffing policies. Despite having a ratio, we have been asked to "look" at incoming transfers or admissions at the end of shift so that clinical manager can claim that admission for their shift. The majority of the older doctors are not very nice. Administration does not back up nursing, regardless of the situation. Patient satisfaction is stressed over patient safety. Health insurance has no charge, but the owner of the hospital created a network of doctors that work with only his company. No option for PPO. CNO, CEO, and Department heads have quick turnover, resulting in the lack of leadership.
Surgical Technician (Former Employee) – Whittier, CA – August 27, 2015
Very tight knit family. I learned a lot from being here for five months. They have several different specialties and the other surgical techs there are very helpful and very knowledgeable. They go out of their way to make sure you learn everything the way you are supposed to know it.
The hardest part of the job, I would say, would have to be learning to anticipate the surgeon's needs during the case. It definitely takes some time to master.
The most enjoyable part of the job is everything. I love this career.
RN (Current Employee) – Whittier, CA – April 30, 2015
Almost all the staff is very nice but the nursing directors don't seem to fix the equipment that is needed to do your job. Translation phones often times don't work, vital signs machines sometimes don't work or they sometimes can't be found when you need them which can be very dangerous. Nurse to patio ratios are kept within legal limit but there's not enough help to perform all the tasks. The mgmt needs to supply an LVN everyday, not just sometimes, to assist the RNs. Otherwise mgmnt shouldn't complain about overtime from nurses because they're all doing the best they can.
good compensation, mostly nice people
often no time for paid breaks, mgmnt not replacing malfunctioning equipment
cna (Former Employee) – whittier, ca – April 10, 2013
This place is great to work. They very clean, strict about hospital attire, free healthcare benefits. However, they pay for even the most experience cna's is similar to a can starting off as a new grad. I didn't mind work the every other weekend and the patient to staff ratio was decent but they are very strict about attendance. They have no problem firing you if your late or absent more than 5 times per year.
benefits, clean enivronment, patient to staff ratio, ceu's
pay rate, no union for cnas or lvns, strict attendance
Its a very homey work environment. Employees are friendly.
Coder-Outpatient (Current Employee) – Whittier, CA – February 7, 2014
I have joined Whittier Hospital for almost a year as a contract coder and I would say that I am so lucky to be assigned in an acute care environment with regular full time employees that were so hospitable and warm and they treat you like one of them.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Whittier, CA – March 24, 2012
