I was promised so many opportunities and was never given any. There was so much turnover and no continuity. I saw so many people come and go. My own Director promised to help me and got rid of my position with no opportunity for another position.
Some good people
Eliminates positions, with no remploymemt help, high turnover.
As being a male constantly pulled away from given assignments for lifting purposes or for tasks nurses Could Complete themselves. Teamwork depends on the person you are on the unit with. If you have a partner sometimes just you and nurses. Luck of the draw Either way.
Alot of work not enough pay for experienced employee
house keeper (Former Employee) – largo fl – March 10, 2018
Feel that this hospital has nice management. I feel that the pay for the amount of work is not fair. Housekeepers deserve $15 an hour for all the work they are required to do. I heard phlebotomists start out at $13... Healthcare workers deserve pay!!!! Also co workers can be rude speaking Spanish infront of you and nothings understood. Kind of uncomfortable. This is a level entry job but I know retail that pays more.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Indian Rocks Beach, FL – February 20, 2018
Housekeepers are definitely overworked at LMC. There are not enough housekeepers and too much work to do. Also, we went through directors like crazy. The insurance was not that great but we have everything.
I was supposed to work 11:00am- 7:00 pm end up working to 11:00 pm almost everyday. After 5:00pm it was only 4 people in busy X-ray department. I stayed to help them because they were desperate. I never had brakes in this place.
No brakes during work, overload. I didnt see my son to much.
A typical days includes paperwork and answering any questions from the prior work day. Taking calls, doing payroll, managing employees and anything else to do with HR paperwork related duties. The management team in the department is amazing, we work together very well but we are only as good as our employees. Unfortunately the housekeeping department is looked down upon in a lot of ways, and we don't receive a lot of the respect we deserve for how hard we work every day; which i would say this would be the hardest part of the job. I enjoy working hard, and its disappointing that a lot of people don't share the same point of view. All and all i love doing my job and every aspect of it, but I need somewhere fresh and new. Somewhere I can expand my experience and put my skills to a better use.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Largo, FL – January 23, 2018
At Largo medical I was able to learn more patience because I was wheeling the elderly around back and forth in wheelchairs and they taught me patience to be able to handle any difficult situation or any difficult people.
I was a great contributor with excellent reviews. Things changed when I addressed a safety concern and reported documentation deletions without an audit trail. My intention as a team member was to be part of the solution but instead was forced to resign. I sought guidance in HR which I did not receive. HR increased the level of conflict so resolution was impossible. I loved my job and my patients but was forced to resign. My area was not part of the union.
Productive work place with many opportunities to learn and engage in various medical experiences
Registered Medical Assistant / Ekg Tech (Former Employee) – Largo, FL – November 28, 2017
Typically 12 hour work days with one 30 min break. Good management style and fun work place, but for EKG position no chance for advancement. Most enjoyable part of the job was being able to be part of a team and genuinely make people feel better. The hardest part of the job was working back to back 12 hour shifts.
Largo medical center is a stressful environment and their turnover rate is high. They provide multiple services but lack the space to provide it efficiently. The hospital is small yet they expect so much from their employees at the cost of employee satisfaction.
Registered Nurse on Progressive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Largo, FL – November 16, 2017
Most days at work are too stressful and busy to enjoy what you do. Always feels like there is not enough staff, even on fully staffed days. Too many "marginal" responsibilities falls on RN's (unit secretary's work, housekeeping, stocking etc.)
