I trained all of the new employees. I had to make sure all employees were able to handle the patient accounts. Employees were trained to navigate the system, read explanations of benefits and remittance advices as laws changed. Employees were also trained to post adjustments to accounts as needed.
(PCT) and phlebotomist (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 4, 2018
A typical day at work can be very fun it's all depend what team working with, what type of patient and family members dealing with. I learn lot of new techniques for my job performance, new skills. Management can be improved in many areas. Workplace can be very frustrated because of multi cultures, different personalities, and back ground. the hardest part of my job is to love and forgive people even when they were wrong. the most enjoyable part of my job is that I love taking care and helping those who needed help in their difficult times either sickness, a love language, encouragement, counseling or just a tender touch.
Patient Care Assistant (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX 78229 – November 13, 2017
Methodist was a good place to work, benefits where great, except for the neuro supervisor she had no people skills. the point system they have is not a good way to keep track of the employees. you only get 7 points yearly with each going away every month,

Bedside RN (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 26, 2017
There is a lot of brown nosing from management to the upper management. They take a lot of time out of our day to make themselves look good. There isn't very much focus on patient care when almost all of my patient's love me, but management doesn't seem to notice. They do notice however, when JCAHO or some other company is coming in to review the floor. I had an admission the other day, and my supervisor knew I had just gotten an admission. He insisted that I stayed for a "huddle" instead of tending to my patient. This would make our unit look good to the people coming in to review the unit. There are several people who work on my floor who are just sick because of the attitudes like this. We are also required to clock out early in order to cut down on incremental overtime even if we are staying late to help a co-worker. Not cool in my book. I was always taught that you stay until your job is done.
Required to clock out early. Hardly get a lunck break.
DIRECTOR OF REHAB & THERAPY SERVICES (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 23, 2017
A typical day at work starts with a team meeting to update the team and set the tone for the day and share information from senior leadership. I take care of any patient care issues, review productivity, and review the staffing needs for the day and the next day. My day is also filled with meetings with other departments to review the quality and safety issues for the hospital, set processes and procedures to improve quality of patient care. Part of my day is spent with staff members answering concerns and doing some professional development plans with staff members. Patient satisfaction is of topmost importance and before I leave for the day, I will visit with the patients on admission and ensure that we have no patient satisfaction concerns The work place has a very cooperative culture which enables me to work with other departments to resolve issues as they arise.
