LVN II (Current Employee) – Redding, CA – September 18, 2013
Work 12 hr night shifts for the last 15 yrs. started as CNA and transport aide while studying Nursing at Shasta college. Start of shift is hectic at best, I usually arrive 30 minutes early to get my assignment and plan my priorities and time management for my shift. clock in and then receive report from day nurse, and start patient assessments, pain control, pick up dinner trays, document % consumed. Get hs meds out on time, set up patients for hs care, brush teeth, straighten bed linens, Change surgical dressings as ordered by surgeon. Turn patients every 2 hr's thru night. Start CERNER pc charting. vital signs per unit protocol. medicate patients in am befor shift change so they are comfortable with P.T. and am routines of the unit. Work with a great team of nurses, never have to ask for help, they see you have a new patient from ER and they are there to help admit patient with you. Hardest part of the job is a surgical patient with a poor prognosis, best part of the job, is seeing the patients get well and go home to their families.
Having the teamwork, and great group of nurses I work with.
Missed breaks and lunches when we are staff challenged
Medical Office Representative (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – April 20, 2018
Started work and did front office duties. I learned a lot about insurances and registration. The staff were not team-players. There was a lot of animosity in the office. The most enjoyable part about the job was working with the public and helping them with there information.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 19, 2018
Dignity Health is a large scale health organization that is riding through a challenging period in the time of technology, government mandates and an aging insurer that is living longer than any have before.
If the opportunity came back, Dignity Health would be the first place that I would try to go back to. The work was challenging and across multiple states but the value for trying to perform the role required was possibly not the best situation to support but needed in the end.
Government Health Care is driving some of the decisions vs. open market
