Jefferson hospital pharmacy
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Jefferson Hills, PA – March 22, 2018
I have noticed a lot of changes since Jefferson Hospital has become part of the Allegheny health network / High-mark. Although the new systems and process changes are for the better, our department as a whole has not had a smooth transition and that is due to management. The department as a whole itself has a lot of potential. Staff is very driven and gets along pretty well. Where it is lacking is direction, accountability, follow though and just simple management from management. I'm not sure weather its because this is the only place any of them have ever worked and they have a "We have always done it this way" attitude or just a lack of leadership/ knowledge of what is really going on in the department. The pharmacists are very knowledgeable and helpful. Hardest part of the job would have to be staffing. It was cut back so far its hard to preform as we should. There are no opportunities for advancement in the pharmacy department as of now. As far as outpatient or tech coordinator, none of them have been created and not sure when and if that will happen. There are no lead techs or anything other then a regular staffing tech/ med rec in the ER on swing schedule.
