REGISTRAR (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – November 12, 2018
The company itself is a wonderful place to work with amazing benefits. There are a few in management in a few departments that have been there for many years that need to be revitalized or replaced. Over all can be a great place to work.
Learned a great deal working here. First hospital I worked at that did neuro cases. Worked for 5 years as prn, then changed to full time. Made a lot more money as a full time employee plus great PTO benefits. Also worked a weekend “in house” and was off the whole next week except having to come in and do robot cases occasionally.
Critical Care Registered Nurse, PCU (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – July 2, 2018
Flexible hours but difficult nurse to patient rations when I worked there. Unit staff utilized team work approach when short staffed. Hospital had great medical benefits and discounts for medical care at CHS facilities.
Medical Laboratory Technologist (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – January 25, 2018
Nights here started with taking report as relief staff, progressed into quality controls and patient testing, occasional phlebotomy, or code call, and ended at a much faster pace with the morning run before shift change.
The workflow was either extremely slow or full speed ahead. There was no in between.It kept things interesting, and I learned to do maintenance and inventory in the slow times.
Management did a good job of accomodating schedules and heading off situations before they became problems. This included things like ordering extra inventory in seasons that had proven to be more productive in the past. This prevented shortages and sometimes allowed us to barter with other facilities for future services.
Cross department communication created a positive work environment.
The hardest part of this job was being in two places at one time when called to the Emergency Department for a code.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the relaxed working environment. Everyone had their area of expertise and each contributed accordingly without strife.
I love working at LRMC. My co-workers and immediate manager are phenomenal people who work hard and love their job. I have learned a lot and have a lot of opportunity for career growth. There is a HUGE lack of pay and raises at this facility.
productive and family structured place to work. Fun
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – October 19, 2018
Busy and challenging, yet rewarding place to work. I learned a lot about Medical Technology and the Test. Management is very fair. Awesome place to work. Hardest part of the job, "Code Blue", and the patient not making it. Enjoyable part of the job, "The patients"!
Clock in grab paperwork. Load fraught in cart load onto the truck. Drive truck to the hospital. Unload truck into the hospital. Load freight into the hospital. Load empty carts back on to truck drive truck back to the warehouse. Unload cardboard baler daily.
No breaks, or lunch. Talked to like you are a nobody.
Very good place to work. Great opportunity for advancements and furthering education .
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Longview, TX – September 22, 2018
I have enjoyed working for Longview Regional. I started out on the floor working as a Certified Nursing Assistant now I’m a Medical Assistant. I find enjoyment in what I do. Longview Regional has provide me with ways to advance within the company through personal training.
Lack of support and no manager back up or authority
Medical Receptionist/Front Desk (Current Employee) – Longview, TX – July 31, 2018
Manager does not like conflict so she does not make people follow rules and discipline them for wrong doings. Fellow employees will stab you in back and friend at same time. Too many chiefs not enough indians
I work all reports for the next days workload, answer any incoming calls and call patients for incoming surgeries about up coming cost. I have learned out to handle agitated patients with more finesse and how to work under pressure. Management is very family friendly but at times is too lenient. The hardest part of the job is working in a room with a lot of people and there being no structure to the day. I enjoy helping the patients out the most, taking that extra step just to make someone else day go a little smoother.
I absolutely love people and helping out. I would volunteer over the summer and help out in the radiology department, helping them with various things like getting patients charts ready, moving patients from rooms to the lab to get pictures taken. This was a great experience to give back!
Your job is to sign people into the ER and then go into their rooms to collect their demographic and financial information and copay. This may not seem too demanding but whenever there are 10 to 15 people an hour and you were also expected to fix everything for everyone else in the hospital it is very challenging. Any time something goes wrong on any floor we are called to fix it, and not all RN's are respectful. On top of the unrealistic workload the management is also poor. The ER registration supervisor is only tolerable if you're her best friend and you go out drinking with her. She brings her personal life to work and takes it out on you. She will be very polite in her office in private but she will scream and yell and belittle in front of doctors/nurses/anyone watching. If you're not her best friend you will be treated poorly and you will be expected to work twice as hard when her favorites don't finish the work on their shift. on top of it all you are expected to complete what could easily be 3 people's workload in 8 hours before your shift ends. The pay is good the benefits are great but overall it's not worth it.
it was a learning experience. I learned a lot in transcription and also medical terminology. Corporation was CHS and the corporation was money based and that was a problem. The safety of patients and caring of patients is extremely important in my opinion.
