RN on Mother Baby Unit and Newborn nursery (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 31, 2018
I was an employee at Methodist Dallas Medical Center for three years in which my position was on the mother/baby unit and consisted of 36 beds. I worked 3, 12 hour shifts per week and typically had 3-4 couplets depending on the acuity. I also worked as a newborn transition nurse on the labor and delivery unit. The best part of the job for me were the patients and peers. MDMC has a diverse culture in patients and staff which I feel is important in todays work setting. I really can't say there was anything I found hard about this position because the management team supported the Nurses so well. MDMC was one of the best positions I have ever held in my career and the reason for leaving is that we relocated out of the area otherwise I predict I would still be at this great place.
You are only valued as a body to fill shoes on a floor. Upper MGMNT fills the need to use budgetary wants with under utilizing staff to meet budget wants. To many patients and not enough staff for patient safety.
Employed at Methodist for a number of years and have no intention of leaving. A typical day at work involves a patient to nurse ratio of 4-5 with co-workers who are eager to assist you should you get behind. I have spent the entirety of my professional career with Methodist and have learned everything I've ever known about nursing from them. Management is friendly and approachable and you are encouraged to participated in self governance with our unit based councils. Workplace culture is one that encourages personal and educational advancement. The hardest part of my job involves the occasional ill mannered, violently confused, or addiction patients. The most enjoyable part of my job is providing education and training to patients and new nurses.
Good patient to nurse ratio, friendly co-workers, approachable management
Patient Account Representative (Former Employee) – 8511 W Dodge Road – July 16, 2018
I could average 70-100 calls per day. I learned about changes to patients insurance. Our management team was open to suggestions. The hardest part of the job was reassuring irate patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was educating Medicare patients on their covered benefits and being told thank you.
Pto sell backs
cross training oppertunities with other departments
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – July 11, 2018
Could use some education regarding Work VS family/home life. Not very understanding when it comes to balancing family and work. Also need to consider a part time program so employees can return to school and not have to quit their jobs to improve their lives.
Don't get me wrong, I loved my job, But they need a little help with compassion
Child Passenger Safety Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 5, 2018
Nice place to work. I learned to work together. Management was always helpful. Workplace culture was never brought up. Down side is the soon to be father's tried to flirt regardless of the presence of their wife.
Surgical Technologist II Surgical Assistant (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX 75237 – June 26, 2018
A typical day at work is staying focused on the scheduled surgeries. Ensuring the proper equipment is placed in the room for the betterment of patient care. After equipment is properly in place, I scrub in an set up my back table and a surgical count is performed with a circulating nurse.I typically, assistant on three to four cases aday, if am not in plastic surgery of the robot room. But I must say, the hardest part of my job is assisting on AV fistulas and getting up for overnight call. Honestly, management try their best to see that not only the patients needs are met but, that the employees get breaks and lunchbreaks.
The most enjoyable part of my job is that I am consistantly learning and aiding in helping enhance the lifes' of others, as I observe, help circulate or participate. In addition to, working in sterile processing as a wrapper, assembling and peel packing.
My job as a tech, tempary unit clear or assembler is rewarding.
