Flexible Schedule/Slow to adapt needed changes/No Communication
CPhT (Certified Pharmacy Technician) (Former Employee) – Martinsville, VA – July 21, 2017
The position was enjoyable but the communication within the Pharmacy Department was off the page most of the time. While everyone worked as a team...it took awhile to get to that place. My advice to the next pharmacy technician that is employed there is to make sure you are trained in every area and aspect of the position so that you can be the best that you can be! If you are looking for a Pharmacy Technician position that credits being VA registered AND Nationally Certified (PTCB), it doesn't matter there because being Nationally Certified (PTCB) is not going to acquire you a higher pay rate. Hopefully that will change in the future.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Home Care – July 19, 2016
A typical day in Home Care of Memorial Hospital is working with patient's who are mainly confined to their home, who need assistance of a skilled professional. The skill set learned while employed in Home Care is diverse and rewarding. Many clinicians have gone on to obtain various certifications. Management are supportive, encouraging, will see patients when the need arises and are part of this great team. The hardest part of the job is getting attached to the wonderful patients and then having to discharge them. At times, scheduling can become cumbersome as it is in all healthcare settings; however, the support of co-workers, office staff and management is what makes the difference. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you have made a difference in someone's life! Healthcare is ever changing with rules and regulations from Medicare; however, the integrity of this agency is second to none and the goal daily is to provide excellent care. The reviews on this site are old and the management staff has changed in the last 18 months. I would encourage anyone who is interested in home health care to come to work here.
New management with Great employees and work environment
Clinical Supervisor (Current Employee) – Homecare – July 15, 2016
Home care is a challenging job in itself with its rules and regulations and Medicare guidelines. This job requires someone with a willingness to work. With that said, the employees currently at this company are the greatest to work with. You will not find better people to work for! The paperwork and charting requirements are tasking, but you have a more flexible schedule which works well for people with family's.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Martinsville, VA – March 17, 2015
This job took over my life. Office politics is horrible and supervisors twist your words to use against you. I was bullied by office staff and set up to fail. This job took over my life, It required 24/7 working and dedication. Alot of duplicate charting that they only look at on new staff while older staff does not document nearly as well as the new staff who is being watched.
Registration Representative (Former Employee) – Customer Service – February 18, 2014
Working in Customer Service was very rewarding. I worked with a great team, and enjoyed the patient contact I had. It was very rewarding to be the first person the patient is greeted by, and I enjoyed being able to set a pleasurable tone for their visit.
Overloaded ed with management who is not defensive for workers
WORKED AS PEDS/MED SURG/OB/TELEMETRY/ED NURSE (Former Employee) – MARTINSVILLE VIRGINIA – January 21, 2012
I stayed at memorial hospital of martinsville from 2004 to 2008, then left for a while to travel and make some extra money, when I returned, things has so drastically changed! I was always on the defensive defending myself and my coworkers that I attempted to approach upper management and noone would see me . So I gave them a notice.
